A/W style guide: laid back neutral outfits


Ciao, welcome back to my blog!

Today I wanted to share with you some of my best autumn/winter outfits ideas for everyday.

My lifestyle mainly requires two things from my clothing: warmth and practicality.

Therefore, the outfits below are all effortlessly chic yet laid back looks that everyone can emulate with the basics you already own.

My style has evolved rather drastically since I moved in London and it can be described as minimal and without frills, rather on the masculine side and it is not a secret that I often wear men's clothes so naturally the main stars of my outfits are: denim and knitwear.

Nothing can beat the comfort and the versatility of those two categories when planning a relaxed look.

Occasionally I also love to wear a dress or a skirt, but only if the weather is mild and in a casual way!


After all, it is all about how you play with accessories.

A simple jumper paired with a chunky boot, a crossbody bag and puffer jacket will accentuate its informality, while the same combo paired with a chic bag, a pair of high heels and a tailored coat will elevate the whole look.

This is also the reason why I don't really need or own occasional wear.

If I have a smarter event popping up, (which is very rare in 2020) I just dress up what I wear everyday using my accessories instead of panicking and run to shop, which is going to leave a hole in my pocket for something that I will rarely use.

Jewellery is also another way of making my plain style more interesting: gold classic pieces that I wear on daily basis that work with all my outfits.

I usually opt for a neutral colour palette as there is nothing more reliable (and stylish) than that.

While someone will think that it is a boring way to dress, I find it, on the contrary, extremely stimulating because I can easily mix and match all of my clothes therefore I am wearing more all of my items and I don't have anything sitting in my wardrobe.

I recently received so many compliments about mu style as they way I dress looks like I own much more than I actually do.

That's the secret to maximise your wardrobe: basic, simple lines and neutral hues.

Add interest with texture and fabric, and there you have it!

As you know, I am all about sustainable fashion and concious consumption so I encourage you to have a look in charity shops and second hand online stores such as Ebay, Vinted and Depop to find all the pieces I am wearing here.

However, if it doesn't float you boat I have listed some similar items below for you:
