I’m a Shopping Expert—These New-Season Buys Will Elevate Your Autumn Wardrobe

Having finally made it out of the tricky, transitional in-between that was the end of summer and the start of autumn, we’re fully in the throes of a fresh new season, and with it comes plenty of new and exciting shopping opportunities. The A/W 22 collections offer the perfect mix of cosy layering pieces, fashion-forward accessories and timeless investment buys, and thanks to MATCHESFASHION.COM, you can easily shop the best of the season all in one place.

We’re pretty picky shoppers when it comes to building a new seasonal wardrobe, and we value pieces that will seamlessly work with what we already own and statement buys that will help elevate our looks. Thankfully, MATCHESFASHION.COM’s elegant edit of sculptural tailoring, refined separates and statement pieces manages to tick every box. Expect considered dressing and contemporary classics from some of our favourite brands including Totême, The Row, Loewe, Gucci, Jil Sander, Emilia Wickstead, Gabriela Hearst, Prada and Saint Laurent, to name a few.

With such a well-curated edit to choose from, you’ll only need a handful of considered buys to see you through the season. To make your decision a little easier, we’ve put together some of our favourite knitwear, coats, dresses and accessories from the site’s new-season drop so you can refresh your closet before the inevitable cold snap hits. Keep scrolling for our top picks from the A/W 22 collections—your closet will thank you.

Thanks to Katie Holmes and Zoë Kravtiz, the cardigan is cool again, and this sleeveless version is proof. 

Speaking of Katie Holmes, her viral “bra-digan” put Khaite on the map, and we’ve been obsessed ever since. 

Totême’s brand of elevated classics and universally flattering staples makes it a surefire winner. 

There’s nothing more comforting on a cold day than wrapping up in a slouchy, oversized knit and your favourite denim. 

We urge you to act quickly and get your hands on this best seller. It sells out almost as quickly as it’s restocked, so you’ll need to be quick off the mark. 

As the mornings get darker and colder, you deserve a sumptuously soft coat to help make the commute a little bit easier. 

Just add a roll-neck, cropped trousers and an ankle boot, and you’ve got an easy outfit for the rest of autumn. 

Norma Kamali is getting it right with a sleeping-bag coat perfect for the days you wish you’d stayed in bed.

High-octane, high-shine and plenty of sparkling spirit worth celebrating. 

The perfect mini for everything from date night to the dance floor. 

Channel big dress energy in this unforgettable velvet and tulle dress. 

Logomaniacs will love Saint Laurent’s Loulou in a comfy-looking quilted finish. 

Update your everyday shoulder bag with an angular, all-black take on the staple.

After the raffia basket bag, the drawstring pouch and, of course, the Puzzle, It was only a matter of time until Loewe treated us to a new It bag.  

It may be compact, but this baguette is a mighty wonder that’s still big enough to hold all of your essentials.

Finally, the wearable boot with an easy heel that we’ve been waiting a lifetime for. 

Goodbye, boring black ankle boots. Hello, tan cowboy boots. The best way to beat the Monday blues. 

If, like us, you’ve been wearing a blazer, tee and jeans on rotation, add a chunky loafer for a little extra polish. 

Struggling with a rigid dress code? A barely-there sandal always rises to the occasion. 

Nothing says “party” like an embellished Cinderella shoe that will last long after midnight.
