When it comes to dressing for the autumn, transitional pieces are key. With an element of unpredictability here in England, we might experience an Indian summer with balmy days or a total wash out, with umbrellas an essential; so, it can be difficult to decide what to wear to work in the autumn. We love this enchanting season, though, and as the leaves change colour, we start to enjoy the brisk morning commute with its chill in the air as the morning frost makes its return. The perfect in between weather to eek out some summer staples while starting to reintroduce some of those warmer long-sleeved pieces. When it comes to autumn workwear solutions, the SCD capsule collection comes into its own. Mix and match for effortless office-appropriate autumnal outfits.
SHOP NOW: CLASSIC SILK SHIRT IVORY
AUTUMN WORKWEAR SILK SHIRT
A beautiful silk shirt comes into its own during the transitional period between late summer and early autumn. It’s that in between time where there is a drop in temperature and additional layers are required but you aren’t quite ready to unpack the winter coats. A timeless silk shirt for work is perfect for layering either under a blazer or a lightweight trench coat, ensuring you’re warm on that commute to the office.
CORPORATE STYLE – AUTUMN COLOUR PALETTE
As the autumn months are a wealth of colour, when the bright blue sky hasn’t yet succumbed to the winter clouds and the beautiful golden leaves are just starting to turn, opt for a range of tonal shades in your wardrobe too. This means you can get creative with your autumn workwear colour palette. Don’t head straight for the darker tones; instead, play with pops of colour and pale shades. All the colours and hues from each SCD collection are carefully selected to complement each other, avoiding too much chance for colours to clash.
OFFICE ENSEMBLE MIX AND MATCH
Mix and match with versatile pieces for your autumn workwear. Instead of choosing the usual office-appropriate workwear dress, pair a silk midi skirt with a top. This styling combination provides endless options. Our capsule collections are designed to be timeless and transitional, so pieces can be reworked throughout the year. Autumn workwear is the perfect time to experiment with layering and colours. So, refresh your autumnal office look by savouring some of those summer favourites a little while longer and layer with some enduring transitional pieces.
