What to Wear Out During Autumn and Winter

Fashion tips for dressing up during Autumn and Winter

As the cooler season slowly creeps in, the reality of having a fabulous, social nightlife almost comes as a challenge. It appears that the temptation of a glass of red wine, Sex and the City reruns and an oversized blanket is a sure win over getting dressed up, sore feet in high heels and an Uber fare.

However, the secret to bracing and embracing the change of season is knowing how to dress so the weather doesn’t get the better of you. Plus, just because it’s cold doesn’t mean your clothes have to be unflattering. In fact, cute, cozy and sexy can be achieved all season long.

Curious? Keep reading as we break down how to look and feel fabulous during autumn winter. Enjoy browsing the selection chosen by Femeconomy from our approved brands!

After Work Drinks

The pressure is on, you and your ‘professional’ team are hitting the bar but what do you wear? If you are familiar with a daily uniform, or more corporate attire, finding something that is individual to you comes with its challenges.

Femeconomy loves Bianca Spender dresses, like the White Cotton Lewis Shirt Dress (also available in Rust) or the Ink Quilted & Ponte Virginia Dress.

Girls’ Night Out

Oooohhh, this is where we get to play! The rule to follow is to keep them guessing. Show a hint of skin here or there but leave the rest for the imagination. Thigh high boots and a short, loose -fitted mini dress seriously says, “Look at me.” Think loose curls, deep red lipstick, chunky hardware and a jewelled clutch to have all eyes on you. Wear your trench coat over your shoulders to make this look ultimately chic. Some Femeconomy approved mini dress selections include Búl’Prost Dress and Camilla and Marc’s Edie Mini Dress.

Unexpected Dinner Date

So even if the dinner date was planned or unexpected in this instance, it probably means you don’t know where your romantic destination may be. You need a fail-safe option that will take you from casual dining to eating shrimp under the moonlight on a yacht.

The secret to this is in the coat. In winter, your coat is fool-proof. You can be over-dressed in a minute and simply undo a few buttons and dress it down in a second. What you wear underneath never needs to be revealed if you feel it’s not appropriate. Basically, the coat gives you the control. Femeconomy recommends these gems from Country Road’s coat collection: the Bell Sleeve Cape or the Soft Satin Trench.
