With autumn just around the corner, it’s time to start pushing your chino shorts and t-shirts to the back of your wardrobe.
The darker nights are drawing in and already we’ve started to feel a change in the unpredictable north-east weather.
Despite the switch in seasons, you don’t need to compromise on style this autumn/winter.
From knitwear to denim, you can still look on-trend with the help of Aberdeen’s Bon Accord shopping centre.
Boasting around 70 fashionable retailers, including Burton, Topman and Marks & Spencer, there’s plenty of stores to help you refresh your wardrobe. With so many on-trend high street shops under one roof, you’re guaranteed to find everything you need – that means minimal time spent hunting new threads, if that’s not your idea of an ideal afternoon.
Not sure where to start? These are Bon Accord’s autumn/winter wardrobe essentials and our favourite looks for you this season.
‘Earthy’ long coats
Nothing screams autumn and winter quite like a long coat. From trench styles and bigger puffer jackets, to the fashionable tweed ones and practical parkas, there’s a garment to suit all tastes. Opt for darker earthy colours like greys, browns and green or if you feel brave, deep reds or bright mustard.
As the nights get colder, knitwear is perfect for keeping warm. Layering turtle neck tops with over-sized jumpers or pairing them with cardigans will keep you on-trend and it’s practical too.
Keeping it casual or dressing it up, having a denim overshirt in your wardrobe is a must. Not only can these be worn to work on a dress-down Friday, they are also ideal for a date or a night out with pals. They can be easily thrown on, giving your outfit a fresh look.
The ‘it’ outerwear garment of the season, shearling is back with a bang. From its luxurious look to its cosy faux-fur interior, this is one jacket that is guaranteed to last you all winter.
