Chi Chi’s buyers top picks for Autumn

How is it October already? It seems that we’ve blinked and over a week the days seem to be getting a little bit shorter and the temperatures have dropped dramatically!   

When this transition happens, it is tempting to bundle on all the jumpers, hats, coats and whatever else you can find in the back of your wardrobe in a slight panic. However, it is important to remember that just because it is getting a bit colder does not mean that we cannot be stylish with our choices.  

At Chi Chi London HQ, the best people to turn to in moments of uncertainty with what to wear is our buying team! Our buyers Sarah and Kaltrina have selected their two Autumn essentials from our newest collections. 

Kaltrina starts her snippet of advice with a casual option for versatile styling...  

“The side split jean is a must-have this Autumn you can dress up for girls' night with heels and a nice top/blazer or dress down with trainers and a knit still warm but stylish.”

She then moves on to something a bit more glitzy...  

“Looking forward to the party season this year so I can wear the below lurex waist detail dress. Again, can either wear dressed up with heels for girls night/party or can wear to a dressy brunch with a knee-high boot & leather jacket over the shoulders.”  

To summarise, in order to easily transition into the Autumn season Kaltrina swears by a staple pair of jeans which can be worn with shirts, jumpers and t-shirts creating both a relaxed and elevated look moving into the new season. 

Kaltrina also highlights the importance of getting party ready! Having a few go-to dress choices makes for an easier, and stress-free preparation rather than running around like a headless chicken surrounded by dozens of dresses that ‘just aren’t right!’

Sarah is up next with her autumn advice! Also starting with a soft, relaxed look for the new season... 

“I love our knitted co-ord. I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to loungewear yet so this is a great set as it’s super soft and comfy, but it can be dressed up with boots or a leather jacket. I also like that you can wear them as separates, I’m going to wear the jumper with mom jeans and docs.”

Now on to Sarah’s party piece...  

“It has to be our lurex twist front dress – this is going to be my Christmas party season dress, cut out detailing is really on-trend for this season - seen all over the AW21 catwalks. I like the lurex fabric as it has a party feel, without being too OTT. This style is available in petite as well as core which is great for me as I’m 5”1 and ¾ inches!”

Sarah has solidified the need for a casual versatile styling piece with the co-ord, and a lurex dress for looking the part at every event you’re attending. If you didn’t know lurex before, you do now, and we bet we can guess what will be getting added to your shopping basket this evening...
