If you follow me on Pinterest you will know I'm pretty crazy about Autumn, is it my favourite season. We've had a fantastic summer here in the UK, so much so that over the weekend the dip in temperature has been noticeable, and for me, exciting!
One of the things I love so much about Autumn is the cosiness, layering clothes, getting the scarf, hat and gloves out of the airing cupboard and thinking about knitwear, mmmm knitwear.
I love the fact that autumn is about accessorising, that a few simple (practical) additions can completely freshen up an outfit. I took to my local Tesco this weekend to pick up a few affordable pieces for under £20 to mix up the same outfit. This is what I picked:
Dress - Fever London (in the sale)
Tights - Tesco
Boots - c/o Hunter
Top - Vera Moda
Belt, Beanie and Scarf - Tesco
I love that the belt in look one instantly made the outfit more nautical! A simple belt can be a great way to add definition to an outfit and create curves. I chose a brown belt to match the simple muted tones on the outfit but a bold colour can also act as a statement piece to add a focal point to an outfit. The belt was £5 from the men's section (do check out the men's sections when clothes shopping, it's where I find my best jumpers!).
The scarf in look two is not a pattern or colour I would go for ordinarily, I usually stick to earthy tones like greens and greys in my scarf choices. I thought I would take a risk and I actually think the colours really compliment the rest of the outfit. An oversized scarf can create such a lovely cosy feel to an outfit too, I instantly felt more autumnal! This piece was the most expensive at £8 but I good buy I will wear with a few different outfits I think
The last look it my favourite although the most simplest. I haven't owned a black beanie in years and forgot what an easy look it is to carry off, its also perfect for bad hair days! I love the look of hats with dresses, the 'dress down' practically of beanies can fit really well with dresses that otherwise might look a little overly 'pretty'. This hat came in at £5 and I think is a simple wardrobe essential.
I also picked up the brown thermal tights (and a pair in grey) which are an autumn must if you are like me and live in dresses!
How do you feel about Autumn and Autumn fashion?
