ESSENTIAL
AUTUMN LOOKS

KARISSA SPARKE

As the weather slowly cools, we look to transitional pieces grounded in versatility, and of course, comfort.
Giving our latest essentials a trend-led slant, Karissa Sparke shows us her go-to oufits to live in this autumn season.

Right now, a full tonal look is a fun way to incorporate freshness into your day-to-day rotation. Pair a funnel neck jumper with bell-sleeve detailing, back with like-hued denim. It’s a low-key approach that still feels modern.

Soften up a blue-dominant palette with nude and camel neutrals – if you want to filter in a touch of print, keep the colours consistent.

Playing with proportions is great when you want to create an outfit with dimension and depth. Not only does it add another element of warmth, but also gives you the choice to shed layers as needed.

Tuck a cotton logo tee into high-waist denim, and mix in layers of differing lengths – like an oversized button-up shirt and a cropped leather jacket.

Autumn’s leather pieces are lighter and less restrictive than you may expect, so they really work perfectly in both warm and cool temperatures. Choose your hero silhouette as a foundation, and build out your look around it – a tailored leather jacket is an easy statement to start with.

If you prefer sartorial combinations, leather with denim is a failsafe aesthetic that’s both effortless and intentional. Try the Martina Leather Jacket together with vintage high-waisted jeans and a ribbed knit jumper for a bit of textural interest. It’s so simple and classic.
