Autumn has officially started, yet we are being blessed with a week of slightly warm weather. When I say warm, I mean thin jumper, boots but bare legs “warm”, you get me? Well I have adopted this wardrobe staple and want to show you how I have been styling it. I have 3 looks for you, one for an Autumnal evening out another for an effortlessly dressed up day look and another for a casual everyday look. I am having a bit of a love in with Oasis at the moment so here are my top AW17 picks at Oasis.
When I shared this photo on my social channels so many people said they loved this dress. I am generally not much of a lace lover yet for some reason I love this dress. When I put it on it fitted so well and made me feel really elegant. There is something about a dress with a zip long enough to allow you to step into the dress that makes me so incredibly happy. I have a strong pet peeve about dresses with a tiny head hole that you have to squish your way into after you have done your hair, so, designers…stick in a long “step in” zip (I tell all my fittings clients to do this 😉 , so all brands that I fit for tend to have long zips hehe). You don’t need to put a belt with this dress but I felt that my old sparkly Accessorize belt jazzed it up a little and broke up the print whilst accentuating my waist.
AUTUMNAL SUNNY DAY
I adore mini skirts right now! I love how you can wear them with or without tights depending on how the autumnal weather is treating us. I struggled a little bit with this mini skirt because the size 10 was way too big for my waist but the size 8 was a bit too snug on my hips! I worked out that the size 8 skirt actually fitted me perfectly but the lining is non-stretch and is made a bit smaller than the outside layer…out came my scissors, I snipped holes in the lining and kaboom it fits me perfectly now and I couldn’t be happier. Let’s now talk about the top, how cute is it! The top is made of a lovely and soft knit with grown on cute frilly sleeves. I loved how they blew up in the wind. This top is such a great throw-on top which very simply dresses up a pair of jeans…the only problem with tops like this is you can’t wear a jumper or small jacket on top. I feel the perfect way to wear it would be with skinny jeans and throw an oversized fur lined (faux obvs.) aviator jacket on top for some warmth.
AUTUMNAL WRAPPED UP DAY
When the chill in the air begins to blow we need to layer up. I tend to wear a strap top most days underneath whatever I am wearing. I think this trend began from me being a model and always wearing black skinny jeans and spaghetti strap top. I then wear a thin knit jumper which doesn’t make me too warm but just stops the chill touching my skin. I love bees and as soon as I saw this jumper I knew I had to have it! The gems that make up the bees are glued on sporadically only on the front preventing them from being rubbed at by a jacket. I’m not sure if it is just a coincidence but I have worn a grey jumper of some sort to three auditions lately and I have booked every one of them! Hmmm…maybe grey is my colour?! Light grey is a great colour to wear as it is so easy to coordinate with other clothes.
