Autumn Winter is my favourite time of year for fashion. Its all about layering, colour palettes and chunky boots – what’s not to love? I’m also convinced that I’m cold blooded because I’m always cold throughout the year so this time of year I can just layer up till my hearts content and nobody can blame me.
There are some pieces I’m absolutely dying to get my hands on this season and they’re all of a similar colour palette. If you watch the QUEEN Elle Darby on Youtube then you’ll know that neutrals are very in this year. Beiges, creams, greys, baby pinks. All my favourite colours which makes it really difficult to retrain myself when it comes to updating my wardrobe.
H&M is a store that I don’t really think to shop at or go and browse round until Autumn is here. They get a lot of bad publicity in the media due to their sizing and I’ve personally really struggled with H&M sizes in the past so don’t often want to go there. BUT their knitwear is incredible. I pretty much live in denim, faux leather leggings and oversized jumpers throughout Autumn and Winter so H&M is an affordable place to stock up on the jumpers.
I have this pair of faux leather look jeans from River Island that I absolutely love and I’ve worn them to death for about a year so I thought it was time to invest in some other pairs. Lorna Luxe (the queen of fashion @lornaluxe on instagram) recommended this pair of leather look leggings/trousers from Stradivarius which you can buy on ASOS for just £19.99 and I didn’t even hesitate on buying them. They’re the perfect bottom to pair with jumpers and faux fur coat and a great alternative to leggings or jeans.
A good comfy pair of boots is a necessity, no questions no ifs or buts. Particularly for nights and evenings out, boots are a great alternative for heels when the weather turns cold because who wants blue toes? Not me. Last year my go-to pair were from New Look and they were rubber heeled Chelsea boots which were comfy enough for the day time but also dressy enough for a night out.
This year I’ve been dying to get my hands on a couple pairs from Lavish Luxe. They’re a newer brand I’ve been working with on instagram and they have some incredible boots this season.
Finally, you need a good couple coats because let’s face it the same coat isn’t going to match every outfit and you know it. You always need your warm everyday coat and your boujee night out/occasion coat. I’m personally a big fan of faux fur coats so I often reach for those but recently I’ve noticed aviator coats making a comeback AGAIN this year and I’m obsessed. I would probably opt for a neutral basing colour such as black for your boujee coat because that’ll always go with any outfit – but I’m thinking to branch out into the creams and browns for my daytime coat this year.
This cream aviator from Missguided is the dream. Off white/cream goes with everything and you can easily style this up with leather look trousers and boots or joggers and chunky trainers. I’ve literally convinced myself I need this coat in 35 seconds but I’m not ashamed. It’s the perfect winter coat.
I’m always up for a chat on socials so drop me a message if you’ve ordered these pieces yourself or know of any pieces you think I’d love this season because I’ll happily break the bank for fashion. .
