I Don’t Wear Florals, But & Other Stories’s Latest Drop Convinced Me Otherwise

Just because it’s autumn doesn’t mean we don’t deserve to dress up, and while we’re filling our baskets with seasonal knits and wool coats for winter, there’s still plenty of room for the kind of high-glamour, feel-good pieces guaranteed to get you in the mood for party season.

Case in point: & Other Stories’s latest autumnal drop, Romantic Elegance. You might be thinking, Romance? In autumn? But allow us to reassure you this collection has come at just the right time. Not only does the edit allow you to shop everything from pretty winter florals to structured tailoring, but there are tons of the seasonal essentials we always rely on & Other stories to provide. Think soft, fluffy knits, leather separates and of course, lots of covetable coats.

After spending the majority of the month deciding whether to wear a light dress or a heavy knit, you can now shop the best of both worlds and layer up in style with 35 new-in pieces in a fresh, pastel and metallic colour palette that’s perfect for day-to-night dressing. So if you’re looking for what to wear in autumn, you’ve come to the right place.

As shopping editors, we’re bona fide experts in scouring the market for the best buys to refresh your wardrobe, and this is a collection that we know you’re going to love (even the floral sceptics). Without further ado, we’ve put together some of our favourite pieces from & Other Stories’s latest glamorous drop, so the only thing you need to do is start filling your social calendar.

The ideal dress to pair with knee-high boots and a chunky knit. 

Looking for an evening dress that always gets the party started? You just found it. 

As soon as the temperatures drop again, you’ll be thankful for a cosy sherpa coat like this. 

We’re wool-coat devotees, and this is one of the best on the high street. 

When we say we’re wearing jeans a nice top, this is what we mean. 

It’s a jumper! No, it’s a dress! In fact, it can be either. We just know it’s a cold-weather must-have.

A well-tailored pair of leather trousers is one of the soundest investments you can make this season. You’ll be wearing them for the rest of the year—and the next, and the next. 

If these trousers don’t say “party time,” we don’t know what does. 

We called it: Knee-high boots are everywhere this year, so opt for a pair that stands out from the crowd. 

The perfect piece to complete any look.

We rely on & Other Stories’s leather bags for a dependable carry-all that doesn’t break the bank, and this new buckle bag just went to the top of our wish lists.
