Quick Coffee Read
I haven’t done a fashion post in a while so I thought I would put a little piece together, which has a look at what I’m wearing this Autumn. Let’s get right into it shall we…
Browns & Burnt Oranges
A classic palette right here, it’s not Autumn without burnt oranges & browns. One of these tops is from a charity shop and the other I’ve literally had for about 3 years. Autumn is my favourite time of the year, I only ever really buy new clothes for it, but also hang onto pieces that I’ve had years gone by (if they still fit!)
Shout out to Megan Hess for one of my favourite books, I’ve shown it some love on Twitter before & highly recommend this for some serious inspo!
Deep Green & Pisatchio
Green is literally a colour that suits everyone from epic brights to muted olive, I love having it in my wardrobe. I think it’s such a versatile colour that has a bit of a stigma. I’ve been wearing my green jumper over a brown leopard print turtle neck a lot recently, which not only keeps me warm but looks fab. Pisatchio is also one of the colour trends for Autumn so get stocking up!
Nudes & Browns
Nude is a colour I’ve started wearing more of recently and I’ve found it quite easy to tranisition into. When it comes to what I want to wear, I take trends into account but also like to make my outfits a little bit different in some way.
Introducing the scarf I have been obsessed with this past month, mainly on a nude base with pops of bright colour and a mix of pattern, which shouldn’t work but they do!
White & Pale Blue
This is more of a winter based palette yes, but we are heading in that direction guys & galz. I am all over my favourite pair of trousers, a high waist, wide leg check print with that light blue weaved in there. I love pairing a fun pair of bottoms with a simpler top, I bought this Tommy Hilfiger from eBay about a year ago. Because the design isn’t complicated, it compliments the patterned trousers well.
I don’t think ripped jeans are gonna go away anytime soon but they will not be wearable for winter without freezing your legs off, but don’t you fret. I’m not quite ready to put them on the back burner yet so keep yourself warm by putting a pair of tights on underneath.
The magic of denim is that it’s just such a perfect base to build on, keep it simple with a black pair or add some jazz with patterns or glitter for that special occasion.
Make sure when doing this to consider the top half of you, fashion is always changing as more and more people start to break the ‘rules with clashing pattern being acceptable for example, but it has to be done right. For example, because there is so much going on with that jumper I would stick to just black tights here.
Another shout to Victoria Harrison (she recently got married, you will know her as @inthefrow) the author of the book here ‘The New Fashion Rules’. One of my favourite influencers and inspirations as she is from Manchester and started out doing a fashion degree!
