I’m a Modest Dresser—Here’s What I’m Shopping (and Wearing) for Autumn

As a modest dresser, autumn just happens to be my favorite season. While I’ve figured out the formula to layering in the warmer months, I love the ease of throwing on a blazer or cardigan without having to worry about sweating. While I like to add a few trendy pieces to my closet each season, it’s the staples that I’ve been prioritizing. I keep them on rotation more often, and they make my more out-there pieces much easier to style. If you’re someone who is always down for a statement piece, it’s important to invest in simple items that you can style your fun pieces around. It’s all about balance.

Below, I’ve rounded up the items that I’ve been shopping (and wearing) as September approaches. I’ve included a variety of price points and styles, so you have plenty of options to choose from. Keep scrolling for your fashion download.

Loose Trousers



I can’t stress enough how important loose trousers in your most-worn colours are. While I love a denim or printed moment, it’s the staple trousers that I come to rely on again and again. Don’t be afraid to play around with the texture or silhouette as I did with this plissé pair.
