The temperature is starting to drop, the leaves are turning brown, and the nights are drawing in which can only mean one thing... Autumn is approaching. This season, it’s out with the old and in with the new, embracing more daring colour palettes and styles to make sure the weather doesn’t dampen your style credentials.
This autumn, don’t fall into the trap of relying on your trusty pair of jeans day in, day out. Instead, be more adventurous and opt for a pair of printed trousers. This monochrome pair from Gap are perfect for a casual daytime stroll with a pair of flats and loose fitting jumper, or for a night on the town with a killer pair of heels and crop. Amp up the glam with a statement necklace from Swarovski, giving you that added sparkle.
If trousers don’t make the cut, opt for a maxi dress and make the most of the last days of the evening warmth. Just because the summer days are almost over, don’t be afraid to bare a bit of skin! If you’re not feeling brave enough however, layer it with a denim jacket for that casual chic look, ensuring you stay warm without compromising on style.
This season’s stand-out colour trend is mustard. Come rain or shine, this bold hue looks great as an outfit centrepiece on a sunny day like this tie-neck blouse from H&M or when subtly embraced through accessories on a damp, grey afternoon. We love this Orla Kiely Ladies Ivy Watch from Goldsmiths, great for livening up any outfit with its sophisticated sparkle. However you choose to embrace it, be sure to channel the intensity and attitude for that fresh and flirty look.
Do you have a hot date or a late holiday on the horizon? Look no further than a sweetheart neckline to make a lasting first impression, its flattering shape shows off just enough skin without being obvious. This dress from Zara just screams romance, and would look great with a killer pair of thigh highs. Up the romance with a metallic shine eyeshadow from Kiko and a soft lip liner from The Body Shop.
