Getting dressed in September can be tricky. One moment you're reaching for a winter coat, and the next you're wondering why you left the house in your black opaques. For a new-season refresh, opt for autumnal conker browns and plum shades, and make your outfits weatherproof with playful layering. London-based model, influencer and high-street shopping pro Emma Louise Connolly tells us that autumn is her "safe place," making her the perfect person to give us a styling lesson for the new season.
We asked Emma to pick her favourite pieces from H&M's autumn collection and create two outfits that she'd wear on a typical day in London. "I never really feel too comfortable wearing dresses or skirts, so summer is a little harder for me," Emma explains. "I absolutely love layering knits and big cosy scarfs." When shopping, Emma always leans towards pieces that will be wardrobe building blocks and that she can wear in dozens of ways. "For me, it's no use if I can only wear it once with a specific outfit," she says.
