Autumn Style With J D Williams + WIW

jd williams sequin maxi skirt


Morning ladies & happy Sunday.  I'm working in collaboration with JD Williams today, the online lifestyle store that offers fashion & homeware to suit all sizes, tastes & budgets.  I don't know if you're aware of the company but along with their own ranges they also stock a wide range of high street brands from Monsoon, ASH, Coast, Oasis & many, many more.

I was approached by the company to pick out my favourite items for Autumn & asked to style an outfit featuring some of my picks, which I'll be sharing at the end of the post, but before that let's take a look at my top 'must have' pieces for the coming season.

Starting with the above stunning sequin maxi skirt, which as you can see from the above image looks fabulous teamed with a pair of trainers & white shirt.  I'd also layer it with a chunky knit polo neck jumper for another daytime look, as well as of course a simple camisole & tuxedo jacket for party season.

Joanna Hope Print pleated maxi skirt


Now you know how I love a maxi skirt so you probably won't be surprised why I've featured the above pleated beauty.  Perfect for dressing down with trainers or teaming with some navy ankle boots with a simple crew neck knit & navy biker jacket.  Or alternatively it would also look great styled with a classic navy blazer.

Similarly this printed maxi dress would also be perfect styled with a biker jacket & ankle boots & would make a great daytime alternative look to jeans.

JD williams fur gilet


For casual weekend style you can't beat a gilet for pairing with a chunky knit, leather leggings & ankle boots combo & the above faux fur beauty looks perfect for completing such a look.

And of course no Autumn wardrobe would be complete without a biker jacket or two.  Such as the timeless black biker above, which is a great price.

Or for something a little smarter & dressier how about the above boucle biker jacket.

JD Williams Joanna Hope Eyelash Cardigan


Turning to knitwear next, something you can never have enough of once the weather turns cooler & I love everything about the above look, which in my opinion is made by the above over sized cardigan - stylish, classic & oh so comfy, what's not to love!

JD Williams Boxy Jumper With Pocket Detail


Another Autumn 'must have' has to be a stripe jumper, the warmer equivalent to the ever useful breton & the above boxy fit jumper would prove to be a great addition to any wardrobe & so easy to dress up or down.

Now for any self confessed grey addicts like myself you'll love the look of the above 'V' neck cashmere mix jumper.  From the shade of grey, to the neckline, to the fit it simply ticks all the right boxes.

JD Williams Bardot jumper


As does the above Bardot jumper.  Who says knitwear can't be sexy & this jumper would be incredibly versatile.  Team with trainers & boyfriend jeans for a relaxed weekend look, or for a night out skinny jeans & heels.  Plus it would even look great worn with a maxi skirt & block heel ankle boots or for a dressier look stiletto shoe boots.

And for everyday style then how lovely is the above slogan knit boxy jumper.  Again skinny jeans & trainers for an easy everyday look or swap the jeans with a pleated maxi for something a little bit more special.

JD Williams Wool Fit & Flare Coat


Of course the arrival of Autumn means we're fast approaching coat season & JD Williams have some great stylish offerings to keep us warm this season, like the above checked belted number.

To this timeless reefer style jacket, that should you wish to customise would look fabulous with some brass buttons.

Or a style I personally fell head over heels in love with last year, the single breasted longline fitted coat that is ideal for dressing up or down.

As well as clothing & homeware JD Williams also stocks a wide range of accessories & footwear & along with their own ranges stock brands such as Clarks, Uggs, Dune & Lotus plus many more.   To give you an idea of the styles on offer I've picked out a couple of my favourite boots, seeing as probably most of us will have our feet firmly glued to a pair of boots come the depths of Autumn.

A flat high knee pair such as the ones above would be perfect for teaming with the faux fur gilet I've featured earlier.

And for nights out then these stud detail ankle boots would bring glamour to the simplest of looks.

Needless to say I could go on & on featuring more of my favourite pieces including some great evening wear dresses, so definitely take a peek at their full range here as they've got some great buys, including some pieces that are a little different to what you'd normally find on the high street.

Now I mentioned at the beginning of the post that I was also lucky enough to be able to choose some of my favourite pieces to style.  So what did I pick?  Well the print pleated maxi skirt, which is even more gorgeous than I had hoped & definitely has 'swish' factor.  I'm wearing a size 10 & although I was a little worried it would be a bit over sized it's absolutely fine.  The same goes for the boucle biker jacket, that may be very slightly on the large size but it makes it's ideal for layering over a chunky knit & the cashmere 'V' neck jumper is a size 10-12 & again as it's meant to be over sized fits perfectly.  I'm also planning on teaming mine with leather leggings to so the extra length is perfect.  I've finished the look off with these boots, which do come up a little big so I'd definitely size down a size but they're amazing value for knee high leather ankle boots & a great 'must have' for the coming season for wearing under maxi dresses & skirts.
