You’re probably sick of reading this sentence, but I bloody love autumn. The weather, the colours and most importantly, the styling. Although the last few days have felt more like winter than autumn, I thought I’d tell you about the four things that I enjoy most about styling in autumn.
Ahhh, my favourite L word. I’ve always preferred having more options in my wardrobe without spending a lot of money, you feel me? Layering is the perfect thing for this, because it gives you the power to “recycle” pieces from your wardrobe in different ways and just generally switch things up a bit. For example, you could layer a jumper underneath a pair of dungarees or wear your favourite shirt open over a plain t-shirt and then next week, throw your jumper on with a pair of skinny jeans and then wear your favourite shirt buttoned up with your dungarees. I love stores like LOTD as they offer such a wide variety of pretty basics that you can add to your layering wardrobe!
I have always said that there is something so incredibly special about the colours in autumn. Isn’t it fascinating that everything in nature is dying but yet it looks so beautiful? Not only do I love the changing of the colours in autumn, but the colour palette for my style is also my favourite. Burnt reds and oranges, mustard yellow, khaki green and wine red are my go to’s every year and they seem to be the colours that always come back around.
Dark florals, tartan, houndstooth, plaid, I could go on and on. Every year when this season comes around, I know that I’ll be able to walk into any high street store and find multiple pieces that I love, purely because the patterns always come back around in style and they all happen to be patterns that I already incorporate into my wardrobe.
A Dark Lip
I think that your makeup can be seasonal as much as your wardrobe can be and an autumnal lip colour that complements the season and your style is a must. Every year I find myself digging out my old favourite’s and they’re all deep reds and purples. Obviously, you can wear any lip colour at any time of the year, but my Rimmel 107 and my Elizabeth Arden Ultra Violet are always my top picks through autumn.
I recently uploaded my autumn/winter style staples over on my YouTube channel and I’d love it if you fancied giving it a watch.. and whilst you’re there, why not give it a thumbs up and subscribe?
