Autumn is round the corner, and with it comes the opportunity to do a little more transitional dressing. Despite being a summer girl, I do love when layers start creeping back into my everyday wear. Cosy cardigans wait patiently in tote bags, blazers get thrown over shoulders, and I’ve already hung my trench coat up by my front door, ready to bust out as soon as it’s cool enough to do so. It also means it’s time to get back into socks!
A Year-Long Review of Peper Harow
It’s been a year since I discovered Peper Harow and their British-made socks, and I’m happy to say that their socks have held up well! So well in fact that I’ve featured many of my older pairs in this shoot, to show you that they look good as new!
In the last 12 months, I’ve walked hundreds of thousands of steps in my Peper Harow socks, and washed them a good few times. They bounce back after every wash, and they’re still the first pairs I go for when I reach into my sock drawer.
My most worn pairs of Peper Harow socks have to be my Retro Stripe Socks, followed closely by my Recycled Ribbed Socks, which are just the right weight to wear in chunkier shoes. And of course, my Bed Socks are a staple in the colder months, although they’ve seen a lot less steps!
Curiously Conscious x Peper Harow
Peper Harow has kindly supported my work over the last year, including a inviting me on a tour of their factory, and supporting on a charity campaign for World Bee Day. I’m overjoyed to feature them again for my autumn styling this year. With traditional patterns, pops of colour, and a new range of sports socks to choose from, they bring an ankle-ful of joy into my outfits. And of course, they’re all made here in the UK, with more sustainable materials and an ongoing investment in more sustainable systems too.
Whatever you wear this season, don’t skip the socks. One of my favourite things to do at the end of a tiring day is to pull on a fresh pair of Peper Harow socks – be it at home, in a hotel, or on a train (!) to one or the other. And as always, you can get 20% off at Peper Harow with code: BESMA
My Autumn Outfit Ideas, Featuring Peper Harow Socks
1. The Layered Up Summer Dress
For my first look, I wanted to take one of my most-worn summer dresses – this MOYE Silk Dress – and layer it up. Here, my favourite knitted OUBAS Jumper matched the my favourite Recycled Ribbed Socks, and I also got to put on my favourite Grenson Nanette Boots for the first time in a while! And let’s not forget, my Amberley Satchel from Mulberry.
2. Breaking Out The Trench
It’s finally time to break out my trench coat! My second-hand Samsøe Samsøe trench has been patiently waiting on the back of my front door for weeks now. It’s my favourite coat for the capricious British weather, and it’s now finally time to wear it again. With this, I can wear my regular jeans-and-a-nice-top uniform, or here, a slightly more grown up look combining this vintage Helmut Lang shift dress and second-hand Wandler boots. And the socks? Peper Harow Sports Socks, which are my secret weapon for comfortably wearing heeled boots all day!
3. Socks & Sling-backs
And finally, my favourite outfit idea for Autumn this year! This comfy ensemble makes the most of cosy fabrics and leather accents. The oversized jumper is from Navygrey, and will be my third year of wearing (made new again thanks to Steamery’s fantastic fabric shaver). The skirt was found in a local Brighton charity shop for just £5. The sling-backs are my favourites from Vetements, which I originally sourced on Vestiaire Collective and have had re-heeled twice now. And for socks, it really depends how I’m feeling! This outfit works so well with Peper Harow’s Classic Women’s Socks, as well as more of their patterned and playful designs.
Let me know which look is your favourite – and how you’re styling yourself this season!
