Celebrating Autumn with personal wardrobe staples. 

Since Autumn seem to step in its own rights, it's high time to take those seasonal favorites out and put it all into our fashion game. Trench coats, leather jackets, classic blazers, sweaters, tweed, layering, collection of boots - that's what we love about the season of rains and falling leaves. I believe now is the perfect time to sport all your favorite boots, heeled or biker-like ones, without a second thought you can slip or damage a pair due to an excess (or shortage) level of snow. So here we go with just several of my Autumn essentials.

Trench coat

Thomas Burberry is the person we owe a lot in terms of trench coats. Having created a piece that was originally meant for military purposes, Mr. Burberry changed our lives for good. Who can now say that Autumn is not their favorite season? Trench coat is a perfect way to battle endless rains, winds and colds. Especially when your trench has this classic signature, in my case it's a French one we have so far seen in See by Chloe story.

Check pattern

Stepping a bit into one of our future Trend Report stories, check pattern is going to be a big case throughout the season. It's classic, timeless and aristocratic. Check is usually associated with Scotland (United Kingdom), probably that's why aristocracy comes in place. Check pattern can be pretty different and diverse, so finding the right size and color is essential.


CNCD stands for chic neutral colored dress. The abbreviation is a product of my own mind. We all know the importance of a little black dress (LBD) that was brought to our wardrobes by Coco Chanel. I believe there should always be an alternative to a black dress - something like modern classics. A dress in interesting design/style, but yet in a more neutral color, let's say grey tone. A kind of a dress that can go for an evening out and for a more elegant day duty. My new dress by Lithuanian siLversands is that example of CNCD.
