Autumn dressing needn’t be a dull affair this year. As the evenings grow darker, the temperatures plunge and the memories of going out without a jacket are nothing but a figment of the past; the idea of getting dressed for the day ahead can become a dreaded chore. But this year it could be different.
With the return of corduroy, dungarees and vibrant turtlenecks, there is no reason for the fun to stop as the days become shorter, chillier and more gloomy. Layering aplenty and injecting textures, prints and brights into a look is all you need to transition your look seamlessly from summer to winter without breaking the bank.
Turtlenecks and textured shirts are key in channelling this look successfully and updating those summer pieces for the colder climes.
Keep suede and fringing season suitable by opting for blacks and earthy tones to throw over an understated look.
A statement boot is just the key to brightening up those drab, grey mornings, whilst still being appropriate for tackling the unpredictable Leeds weather.
Make sure you’re cosy by investing in a comfortable lined throw on coat that can compliment any outfit. Whether you opt for a simple throw on, a duster style or the celebrity staple robe inspired number, you will be sure to keep snug this season.
Also winter calls for golden and copper clad lids and opens up the possibilities for all sorts of bold lip shades – from reds to rich purples, it’s the time to experiment with your vamp side and have fun.
