My Autumn Fashion Must-Haves
So sadly summer is coming to an end (sob) the nights are getting long and everyone's preparing to go back to school/college. This summer has been surprisingly amazing, with that beautiful heatwave in July that I long for these days whilst I dread the looong cold, dark winter ahead. But firsts there's AUTUMN yay! hopefully, it will lean more towards the summer heat than the winter chill, either way, I love Autumn. I love how pretty the trees look when they're losing their leaves, the autumn twilight, the calm weather, the still water, I just love the whole atmosphere of Autumn but I can't quite pin-point what that atmosphere is!
Anyways, onto the actual point of this post - I also love Autumn fashion, I love how they're more snugly than summer yet lighter than winter, and of course I love the colour trends in autumn, even though most of the items I show as examples aren't really anything like 'autumny' colours! haha.
Nevertheless, I have been thinking about how I want to update my wardrobe for Autumn recently and thought I would share with you the type and styles of clothes I am planning to look out for, purchase, and 'rock' this Autumn!
First up is the T-Shirt Dress. Recently I have been really getting into wearing more casual dresses on an everyday basis and have fallen slightly in love with the t-shirt dress. They are simple, comfortable and casual enough to wear down to the shops but yet look effortlessly stylish and classy. I really really want to get more of these for autumn and pair them with tights or leggings and maybe a knitted cardigan. They will be just perfect for college in my opinion!
OK so I'm probably a bit late on the bang wagon with these but I am really starting to love the Slogan Tees and have no idea how I don't own a single one. You will probably notice from this blog post that I do have quite a 'boyish' or 'varsity' style so these t-shirts are right up my street! I love the statement they make and honestly I just think people who wear them are cool. Haha. I especially love the NERD or GEEK tees but haven't seen any in the shops, I will be keeping my eyes peeled!
OK admittedly this is kind of an iffy one for me. I am a skinny jeans/leggings kind of girl and would usually never dream of wearing anything else as they seem to be the most flattering. But recently I have been eyeing up this style of trousers and quite like them. I like how they are still narrow at the bottom and are just a bit baggy around the waist. I really want to at least try a pair of these on to see how they look, I think I need to try being a little more adventurous with my bottoms and this might be just the way! Hopefully I will be brave enough to wear these this Autumn. What do you think of them? should I stay away?
Well I am a scarf addict so this one is a given. Every Autumn/Winter scarves are my must have accessory for me and this Autumn will be no different. Weirdly, during the summer I have actually missed wearing scarves, not that I wanted it to be cold again but they are just so pleasing to me, all the different colours and patterns aaahhh. Scarves are just such a noticeable part of an outfit, they're such a statement and I will probably spend far too much money on them this Autumn yet again *sigh*
Another thing I am addicted to every Autumn/Winter are Knitted Jumpers. They're so warm, cozy, practical and fashionable, I just loves them! I am definitely planning on investing in some pastel colour ones for this Autumn (I know that's more of a spring colour, but I just loves pastel ones! especially mint) One thing is for sure, I can never have too many of these gems throughout the colder months!
OK yes these may be a bit old news too, and not very exciting but I really like them, they are so my kind of style and I just think they're gorgeous. I already have one with leather sleeves which I LOVE and wear to death but I really want to get just a plain khaki one for this autumn. They match the style of most things in my wardrobe so why not?!
Last but not least, my beloved ankle boots. I have also missed wearing these in the summer and felt sad for them sitting alone in my closet unworn (yeah I'm sad!) I'm kind of short so I really hate full length boots and how them make me look like a complete midget, so for me, these are perfect. Warm, comfy and oh so stylish, they are definitely a must-have in my Autumn wardrobe - must find more!
Wow, this was sort of a long blog post with a lot of ranting and raving and lusting over my Autumn fashion loves. If I am lucky enough to find some nice things from these categories I will be sure to show you and let you know where I got them.
