JEWEL TONED BOOTS
I don’t think I’ve ever had as many questions about a pair of boots as these Kurt Geiger ones. My friend actually spotted these before I did and text me saying ‘I’ve found your next pair of boots’ so I knew they were going to be a new addition to the wardrobe before I’d even laid eyes on them! They are my favourite style of boot in that they are a definite statement, not just your classic black leather. They’re a tactile suede, they’re jeweled in colour, a pointed toe which I love and a contrast heel. Sent from shoe heaven!
DOUBLE BREASTED JACKETS
I’ve worn double breasted jackets previously, from Ted Baker to Balmain and I always feel that styling them can sometimes feel tricky and a little overwhelming. For me it’s a must, no matter what the shade or length, to style them alongside a fitted outfit to avoid drowning your figure. The often structured material, especially worn open like in these images, needs a fitted piece to contrast the masculine cut. I adore this khaki coat addition but I am also on the look out for a paler grey style for evening looks.
LEATHER/LEATHER LOOK TROUSERS
If there’s an item I get excited to purchase every Autumn it’s a pair of Reiss leather trousers. I absolutely love investing in the latest style they produce when the season changes, as I feel like I live in them from September to January. I always size down in Reiss leather trousers as I like them to feel fitted and if I’m transitioning into wearing them to the evening from a day look I want them to look fitted and glam when I put my heels on. Is there anything more rock chick then some leather or faux leather?
During Autumn I find my choice in accessories changes. I put down my pastel clutches and I crave anything that’s a little edgier. From backpacks to handbags with chunky metal hardware, the look I’m craving most this Fall is studded. The last 2/3 pieces I have lusted after have this one thing in common and I think I’ll be adding one more to the collection very soon. A bold handbag like my Dior Addict flap bag can add a little ‘oomph’ to any simple look.
WHITE SLOGAN/LOGO TEES
And last but certainly not least, a wardrobe staple no matter the time of year and one you’ll often see me in when styling an everyday outfit like this. A crisp white tee. This particular one I love as it’s slogan/logo on the chest makes it a little different from your usual basic and adds to that edgy look I go for at this time of year. This Saint Laurent one is definitely on the pricey side but it’s such an easy to style piece that it’s easy to get your money’s worth.
I’d love to know if you’re still enjoying these style based posts, especially with both high-street and high-end pieces in the mix? Let me know if you find them interesting and even more so if they offer a little inspiration for the new season this time around!
