Style | AW 19 from Toast…

TOAST does it again!  Every new season their lookbook arrives on the doormat, and every year I’m head over heels in love.  This Autumn is especially wonderful.  I think TOAST does autumn / winter well.  A love of earthy tones, textures, study boots and patterns sees the darkest winter months transformed into an adventure.

Begone that feeling of dread once summer fades away, instead look forward to layering up in a woollen coat, heavy needle cord and thick soled ankle boots.  I certainly can’t wait!

Here is a round up of some of my favourite looks:

The early Autumn collection, “A CURIOUS MIND” sees warmer hues making an appearance, photographed in golden slanting light, which makes the pieces come alive. My stand out pieces from this micro collection are the brushed cotton twill jumpsuit the cord shirt dress in bottle green, the boxy cashmere cardigan in turmeric.

The next micro collection for late autumn is “grounding” – shot on location at Elmley nature reserve where I recently stayed.  Such a coincidence, it is where I took that photo of me wearing my Toast shirt!

Grounding see’s a sense of adventure, to stride out and enjoy this crisp season.  A celebration of the pioneering spirit, layer up dresses with cosy knitwear, ankle boots with thick socks and scarfs and berets.

My favourite pieces from the ‘grounding’ collection are the mohair intarsia sweaterthe prairie floral dress, the cord jacket in brown slate, cotton check smock top, and the wool gauze moroccan striped dress.

With summer fast becoming a memory, I’m really looking forward to Autumn with this latest collection.  I’m hoping to stride out and seek new hobbies, get stuck into creative endeavours.  It’s time to pioneer new horizons.
