Seasonal Style

So with Summer slowly fading away (if we can say it was ever really here!) and with the ruffling leaves collecting raindrops, it's time to think about your Autumn/Winter wardrobe. From cosy knits and flying jackets to camel coats and tribal tops- your favourite high-street and online stores have it covered.

Let me start by introducing you to the aviator jacket. Ever since Burberry hit the runway, fleece-lined, leather aviator jackets have caught everybody's eye. They don't come cheap but they're a true trend-ticker and will do a great job of keeping the cold out during the chilly season.
(from left to right) Missguided sky aviator jacket in brown for £44.99 and New Look waterfall faux fur jacket for £35

Or if you prefer, Boohoo have this edgy Ami flying jacket on sale for £45.
Next up is the camel coat. That's camel, not beige. It's the colour du jour and is sported all over the catwalk at the moment so if you're a keen fashionista then make sure you add it to your seasonal collection wishlist.

(from left to right) Next children's camel formal coat from £28-£34, depending on size; Matalan camel A-line coat for £35; Asos pleated swing coat for £70.

Then there's this bound seam duffle coat from Topshop at £80. It does mean spending extra pennies but I love the double toggle fastening detail:
Another staple wardrobe piece is oversized jumpers and cosy knits. As well as keeping you all hearty and warm, they're extremely versatile and can be teamed with leggings, treggings, jeans, shorts, denim//bodycon skirts- they can even be worn on top of a dress or playsuit! And if you're afraid that they'll make you look big and shapeless then why not add a narrow belt to clinch your waist- perfect!
(from top to bottom) ASOS Darling pom pom knitted jumper for £48; Boohoo Leona batwing jumper for £25; Miss Selfridge cream knitted panel jumper for £30. (far right) Boohoo Charlie batwing style knitted jumper for £25.
(left to right) Missguided Jadan knitted bird jumper in stone for £16.99; Missguided Loretta knitted jumper dress with button detail for £21.99; New Look longline cricket jumper for £17.99.

Then there's terrific tribal. The tribal trend took over the runways with vibrant prints, warm tones and rich accessories. Tribal clothing is a sure way to inject a splash of colour into your wardrobe and to bright up those chilly days to come.
(from left to right) New Look Mela tribal ruffle dress for £24.99; ASOS Africa printed tie waist shorts for just £20; ASOS Orion Gianna tribal stud dress for just £22 on sale. At even more of a bargain is this Roxy coloured bead top from Boohoo for an amazing £10!
My next choice of outfit is the ladylike blouse. It's cute, sexy and professional all at once! Think Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo :) They especially look good with bootcut and flared jeans/trousers or a shapely pencil skirt for womanly chic.
(clockwise) ASOS pussybow ruffle blouse for just £16 on sale; Boohoo Imogen lace puff sleeve blouse for just £13; Republic Miso ruffle print blouse for £22.99; Boohoo Shannan long over lace tunic blouse for £21.

Something you can carry from Summer into Autumn is the trusted boyfriend blazer. Team one with skinny combats or harem trousers for a laid-back vibe.  Or wear with cotton leggings or jeggings and a long top with added brogues, sneakers or ankle boots for instant edge.
(clockwise) ASOS jersey boyfriend blazer jacket for just £22 on sale; New Look ruched sleeve blazer for £34.99; ASOS sequinned boyfriend blazer for an amazing £12 on sale; New Look lace blazer for £22.99.
Missguided Deanna floral blazer in grey for only £14.99 on sale.

Then comes brilliant boots and amazing accessories to complete the look. This post will focus on the footwear that will keep your feet fuzzy during the cold weather (well that and legwarmers or knitted socks of course!).
(left to right) brown double buckle military boots with stud detailing for £25; New Look buckle boots for £34.99; Boohoo Sindi all over lace covered heeled shoe boot for £25.
Missguided Ailsa platform shoe boots for £34.99 (I happen to own these boots and I absolutely love them! They're comfortable and ├╝ber stylish); Miss Selfridge cream cutout shoe boot for £45.
Boohoo Elora heeled shoe boot for £25; ASOS Killah lace up shoe boot for just £22 on sale.

I think these items make for a marvellous Autumn/Winter wardrobe and is a sure way to welcome the new season. Step out into the wordly winds and whispery waters in style! Be brave, bold and beautiful with the latest trends :)
