It’s a funny old time of year isn’t it? One day feels like summer is lingering, the next we’re tricked by a shining sun but bitter wind - and on another rain and greyness banish the sun all together. And then there are those days when every season is jammed into a handful of hours. All very lovely but what on earth do we wear to keep up?
Layers. Everyone says wear layers, but what does that mean when we’re straddling our summer and winter clothes? Happily, Plum is here to help with gorgeous autumnal colours to bridge the seasons and deliciously soft wool and cashmere jumpers, scarves and hats to pull on when the weather is being tricksy.
Rabens Saloner have come up trumps with their Else dress that looks great teamed with tights and boots, heels or even bare (if you still dare) legs and Bensimon pumps. With a graphic print shot through with silver threads, the Else dress is a versatile piece that floats and moves beautifully, making it perfect for autumnal weddings or for stomping through crunchy leaves on a cold, crisp afternoon.
And for evenings, the luscious Leila wide-leg trousers will bring out the princess in you. Just gorgeous fabric, ombre print and all round star quality. Dress them up with some killer heels or down with Jumper 1234’s soft brown cashmere; the sumptuous mix of fabrics will keep you warm on the chilliest of nights.
Swildens, another current favourite of Plum isn’t shying away from prints that reflect the changing shades of autumn leaves. Rich yellows, soft reds and fine floral prints in black and white, all in delicate blouses with beautiful detailing. Tucked into a pair of their jeans or poking out from a luxuriously warm winter jumper, they are more than a match for the changing seasons.
For those days when you want to break out and embrace the Abba that has surely found a place within all of us, Plum has the perfect escape route with new brand WE YATES. Amazing Abba-like prints in trousers, skirts and tops that can look surprisingly understated when teamed with any of our Jumper 1234 or completely out there with something as sparkly as Just in Case’s silver cardigan that’s currently on offer.
So go with the season, it’s a wonderful time of year when everything is changing with the promise of crisp walks through crunchy fallen leaves and nights warming in front of a fire. And if you’re looking for a refresh, pop in to Plum or delve deeper into our website.
