8 Autumn Essentials Of 2018 To Shop & Wear!

Loving fashion too much, or not at all is no bueno, cause you see… you’re left in either a hoarder’s struggle #mylife, OR the exact opposite of basic boring empty closet. The struggle is real in both cases, although the latter ignoramuses are clueless and blessed. Besides, there’s no wrong way in fashion these days, as personal style prevails. But that’s another talk that we already had. So… once seasons change we’re fucked yet again with the same sartorial predicament: what the hell should we buy? Should we actually buy new stuff? And if so… what exactly are the new autumn essentials of 2018?

Fear not my little fashion lovers, and haters as I have done my homework hence this little guide for the autumn essentials of 2018.

1.SWEATERS 

Groundbreaking indeed, but what can I say, it ain’t no rocket science: it’s cold so you wear a sweater. Sometimes you layer it, sometimes you don’t. Sometimes you go for classic greys, nudes, taupes et all, and other times you feel like massive chunky bubble sweaters. I think I kinda like these for 2018.

Stay away from those preppy styles, worn as such, or layered with preppy shirts underneath. If you want to shirt layer go for something masculine and monochromatic a la Victoria Beckham.

2. JEANS

One of the major autumn essentials of 2018 are those jeans that fit no description, cause they’re a bit of everything: mom jeans, classic wedgie Levis, cropped, fitted but not skinny, loose but not boyfriend, high waist. It’s all about the fit.

Stay away from skinny jeans. I have a dagger through my heart right now, saying this… but I think I am slowly ready to let go. Or at least wear skinnies less often.

3. ANKLE BOOTS

Hey, I love sandals as much as anyone, but it’s too damn cold, so as a major autumn essentials for 2018 the ankle boots are still IN. The styles though are more sophisticated: think heels, stilettos, kitten heels, cowboy boots, pointy toes, red, metallics, sleek styles, chelsea boots.

Stay away from those ankle boots that were so trendy circa 3 years ago: suede like, square block mid-heel slightly tilted in, cropped boot, always worn in summer, or winter with skinny jeans. Yeah… I actually just bought a pair last year, knowingly and full on aware their time was done, because they were on sale (€3.00) – for the above reason go figure, buuuut they can’t hurt, who knows what the hell will happen in the future. #hoarderlife

4. SOCKS. 

Man oh man… I so need to get me like a gazilion of these. You guys I have no socks, I wear no socks almost ever, except those tiny ones for workout, the fuzzy ones for bedtime in winter, a pair of over the knee ones, and my husband’s whenever I feel it’s kinda cold so I need to warm up my feet. Yeah. I need to get myself cool socks that just peak a little bit from under chelsea boots, or from under anything to keep warm and look more autumn appropriate.

Stay away from… I don’t know what. Like I stayed away from socks altogether and now I have this case of FOMO…

5. MASSIVE SCARVES

One of the most loved autumn essentials of 2018 are scarves, another item that’s a somewhat stranger to me. I do have scarves and I do wear them occasionally, but again the FOMO of all the looks I could have done with those blanket scarves is haunting me. I plan to makeup for it. So… yes, blanket massive scarves are in, in nudes, taupes, greys and checkered.


Stay away from cowl neck scarves, or just stop wearing them as such, and from infinity scarves. Amen!

6. SUNGLASSES

It’s autumn, it’s not the apocalypse, and you will need sunglasses cause if it’s bright in the cold season, it’s blinding. 2018 is the richest year in the revival of sunglasses. Small sunglasses are IN and they look insanely cool: oval, round, as tiny as your eyes, exposed eyebrows and all, exaggerated cat eye a la 60s, see through coloured lenses. Sunglasses look more retro and psychedelic.

Stay away from those 2000’s Nicole Richie square dated frames, and those that were once considered elegant or whatever. Don’t wear them. If you want elegant and classic go with elegant and classic wayfarers, or Celine cat eye.

7. BAGS

Hallelujahhhhhhh! When it comes to bags 2018 is heaven: from micro bags, to midi handbags and cross-body bags, as long as it’s not massive, it’s in. Designer bags look fun and cool, the styles are overly embellished, and structured, nothing is slouchy and everything has little beautiful bits and ways to wear them. In your hands, on your arms, or cross body.

Stay away from slouchy bags. I repeat, stay away from slouchy bags.

8. BEANIES, BERETS, BAKER BOY HATS.

It’s a hat party alright. They all look very cool, and French chic, so if they fit your style, head, face, and everything else by all means rock it.

Stay away from… nothing really when it comes to things you wear on your head, have a blast. Actually I don’t like hats in general and floppy hats in particular, because they’re too ubiquitous, pretentious and over-styled. What once was a thing of niche is now a big failed wannabe in most cases.

Any thought? Any faves or least favourites?
