Five standout pieces from the Asos WHITE collection that are perfect for October

Five standout pieces from the Asos WHITE collection that are perfect for October

You might have read recently that my rent was late because of my inability to step away from the Asos White collection. If you haven’t yet heard of Asos White, it’s another note-worthy dimension of the Asos label that offers premium pieces for customers who want to escape fast fashion. It’s a clean perspective on sophisticated style, is day-time friendly and the pieces are versatile and wearable.

The new-season collection is as delectable as the last so naturally, I’m terrified for my bank account and landlord (mam). We’re days away from the official start of autumn, so there’s no time like the present to get sartorially ready for the next few dark, cold months ahead…sorry

 

The cashmere sweater

Light layering is the answer to channelling September/October sartorial excellence. Light knitwear is the perfect remedy for cold shoulders and arms, and even the most casual options – like this lavender high-neck cashmere jumper – is an ideal cure for an unexpected afternoon wind-chill. The soft-to-touch cashmere will feel like a hug, making it an optimum choice as we make the imminent descent into autumn.

The utility dress

A sleeveless dress for autumn? This bare-armed, V-neck utility dress is perfect for layering over warm and cosy turtlenecks and jumpers. Swap up deep conventional autumnal palettes of khaki, burnt orange and burgundy for bright white or cream. And, when the good weather does return in 2019 (so, so long away), you’ll have the perfect sleeveless utility dress hiding in your closet.

The blazer

Yes, the weather is tricky right now and the temperature can change from cold to hot unexpectedly (I found myself wondering if anybody genuinely has ever died from over-sweating?). A blazer is the ideal throw-over-your-shoulders option for when it’s not quite time for a heavy jacket, but cold enough to layer up. This double-breasted check-printed jacket makes for an understated, yet elevated, everyday piece with a modern twist. This is a lesson in how to be a grown-up without looking like a grown-up.

The midi dress

There’s no need to pack away your favourite midi-dresses in soft, sensual materials and rich colours just yet. Not just for warmer weather, the midi-dress works just as well during colder months as it does in spring and summer, and this deep, regal, navy midi is a perfect example of that. With a sleek cross-over front, asymmetric hemline and super-smooth, silky feel, it will really elevate your everyday wardrobe. The fit is loose but not oversized, making for a relaxed look. Layer with a slouchy knit (or blazer) and boots for an autumnal update.

 

The jumpsuit

There’s a reason why jumpsuits are selling out so fast: they’re minimal and quite effortless, but they’re a great one-and-done outfit. There’s no faffing about the night before or stressing first thing in the morning before work; just pop on a jumpsuit and accessorise with a pair of earrings and the right shoes, and you’re ready to take on the day ahead. The right jumpsuit should fit comfortably on your body – not too tight and not too loose – hug your frame nicely, but give you enough room to manoeuvre throughout the day, and this Asos White jumpsuit will do just that. I love the pointed collar and oversized square pocket detailing, oh and pockets – it has pockets!
