Mondo Kaos Autumn collection 2020

How do I style my vintage fall wardrobe?

Autumn is just around the corner, and it's time to crawl inside or at least put on a few extra layers when we go outside. Maybe we'll pack away the thin summer dresses for this year, along with the sandals and thin shirt blouses.

Autumn news at Mondo kaos

It's time to put warmer clothes into use, but perhaps still with the option of more layers depending on what the whimsical autumn brings us.

Here at Mondo Kaos , we always look forward to the new season's goods, a new season always means new colors and designs, and a reunion with old acquaintances in new colors and patterns.

Vintage fashion in autumn's beautiful colours

Let's start with autumn's beautiful color palette. Autumn calls for the more burnt colours, warm, cozy colours. Colors that reflect nature as it looks now, from the warm burgundy shades, to spruce green, mustard yellow and all colors in between. Another autumn favorite is typically teal, also called petroleum-coloured, and purple will also be found, just as all shades of brown to orange will also be seen this autumn.

In addition, there are always the classics, red, grey, navy blue and black, which we will of course also get home this season because they are timeless and because they can be styled together with all the beautiful autumn colors and of course can always be used in a classic vintage look.

Soft and inviting materials in autumn's Vintage fashion

Another characteristic of autumn clothing is that it is no longer the light fabrics we are looking for, instead we want fabrics and materials that seem invitingly warm and nice, and radiate warmth.

A material that typically belongs to autumn is velor, and we always have beautiful velor dresses in our autumn range. See, for example, the beautiful Hollywood dress from Very Cherry , or Zoe Vine's Camilla dress, which is both available in green and purple, all in the most beautiful soft velour.

Fall's essential garment; a vintage style cardigan

Autumn is the time when knitting makes its big comeback. We want warm, soft layers, and nothing is more beautiful than wool and cotton knits to match the many vintage skirts and trousers.

An autumn must-have is a beautiful vintage cardigan from Emmy Design or Palava . Both brands create new styles and colors suitable for each new season, and anyone who has had a cardigan from either Emmy Design or Palava knows how beautiful and versatile they are. They are also perfect for giving your clothes an extra vintage touch, as they are made according to original vintage patterns.

Palava always comes up with beautiful colors and patterns for their exuberant cardigans and knitwear. They also have a large fan base among our customers, and often disappear as quickly as we get them. For autumn, of course, they are in the most beautiful autumn palette with shades such as ochre, terracotta and storm grey, all mixed with neutral tones such as off-white and navy, so they are easy to style. They also naturally have the expressive animal embroideries for which we love Palava .

From The House of Foxy we have the good name: the cable knit cardigan . The cardigan is in a true 40s cut, it is cut to the waist and thus the perfect companion for your vintage autumn look. We even have a nice beret house that matches the green model.

Knit blouses in Retro style

In addition to our popular cardigans , we also have a selection of retro knit tops to keep you warm through autumn & winter.

The House of Foxy has the famous cable knit sweater, which is just the right short length for all our high-waisted vintage skirts & trousers, and we have it in several beautiful autumn colours. As always at The House of Foxy, the blouse is inspired by authentic knitting patterns from the 1930s and 1940s, the blouse is also in a soft wool blend.

Of course, we also got lots of beautiful Palava knits home. Palava's cotton is 100% organic and grown and spun in Turkey. Palava 's knitwear is characterized by its playful color combinations, beautiful embroideries and whimsical designs. In the more neutral palette, this year we have chosen a wonderful plain knitted top with a sweet hole pattern, and the beautiful wave-striped blouse in two color combinations, a warmer and a colder palette. Of course, we have many more beautiful knitted blouses in the shop.

Classic trousers in vintage style

Our large selection of vintage-style trousers also come into their own from autumn onwards. The trousers from The House Of Foxy are a real bestseller and are super nice to match with our autumn knitwear or shirts. All our trousers are beautifully fitted and high waisted, and come in the most beautiful colours, as well as the neutral black and navy.

A classic vintage look with pencil skirts and pencil dresses

You can get a perfect autumn look with the many beautiful pencil dresses and skirts, of which we always have a large selection. But a pencil dress from, for example, Zoe Vine , gives you a beautiful tight-fitting dress that really accentuates the hourglass figure. Its strong material makes it perfect for autumn, and can be used for many occasions. Styled with a pair of pumps it is perfect for a party, and styled with a cardigan you create the perfect vintage look for everyday life.

The beautiful pencil skirts have the advantage that you can wear many different tops, thereby renewing your vintage outfit just with a new blouse. For the pencil skirts, we have, for example, the beautiful long-sleeved shirt blouses from The House of Foxy and The Seamstress Of Bloomsbury, which we always get in beautiful new colours. Of course, this also includes a vintage style cardigan so you can keep warm.

Patterns for autumn - vintage check and tartan

We've touched on it already, but plaid is just always good for the cold months. It's super classic, elegant and it's a pattern that everyone can wear, as it looks completely neutral on the eye, but still gives some life to monochrome outfits.

We have all shades of check and tartan in vintage style, Hanefjedstern, or the so-called houndstooth, Prince of Wales check, petitatern and then of course tartan which is always multicolored. If you don't otherwise use a lot of pattern in your wardrobe, we really recommend trying checks, and no season is better for it than autumn.

Autumn and Winter coats in vintage style

Now, of course, we also need outerwear and warm coats. Our selection of vintage coats this year mainly consists of beautiful princess coats. A classic princess coat is a waisted coat, with a large collar/hooded collar and with full width from the waist down. This is the perfect feminine coat and it gives you plenty of room when you wear your swing skirts or dresses. The coats are available in several beautiful autumn shades, and are perfect both for everyday use and for a walk in the autumn forest with its falling leaves followed by hot cocoa.

This year we get the most beautiful coats, including a quilted style in dark burgundy and navy blue, but also a delicious warm orange. It will be hard to choose just one favorite!

Accessories for Autumn

Of course, autumn also has its own accessories, even quite a few, it's actually your opportunity to really style a perfect vintage look. Now is the time for gloves, hats, scarves, and of course our beautiful exclusive range of Rock It Rosie accessories in all the beautiful autumn colours.

For autumn and winter, we carry a small and exclusive selection of, for example, berets in beautiful autumn colors and gloves from Rhanders Handsker in soft lambskin.

We are always happy to give styling tips from us, but just two accessories in the same color can really bring an outfit together. Just like matching your shoes to a piece of clothing or an accessory will also give a beautifully uniform vintage look.

We look forward to seeing you in Mondo Kaos, and to showing you all our beautiful vintage and retro autumn clothes.

Loving greetings,
Team Mondo Kaos ♥
