Hey everyone, how’re we all today? Are we hungover, due to the extra night out this weekend? Or gutted because its yet another chilly August day? Well, however you’re feeling this murky Monday morning, I’ve got some hot fashion picks to cheer you up!
I love it when the new season rolls around! And to be perfectly honest, with the wash out summer we’ve had, I’ve been counting down the days until I can illegitimately wrap up in cosy dresses, cardigans and boots without crying inside because I should be in shorts and sandals!
I’ve picked out my favourite ‘going out’ item and favourite ‘everyday’ item from each store;
I absolutely adore this dress from New look, and whats more, its only £29.99! I would say its the perfect transitional item to take you from ‘summer’ to autumn for a night out.
Its dressy, but that bit longer, and it isn’t skin tight. So you can afford to put on a little extra weight over the party season and still look stunning!
The lattice detailing takes a fairly plain dress and makes it that little bit more special and exciting.
Rock it with black and gold accessories, a studded back and black platform ankle boots for the grunge look that is simply everywhere this season!
Like I’ve said, the grunge look is certainly here to stay, I love this skull print top, its grungey but the diamante detailing makes it girly – perfect!
Add chunky rib knit leggings, military boots and a thick scarf and you’re good to go when it starts getting that little bit cooler, yes, it will get cooler than it is now!
You could dress it up with some thick jewellery, a slim fit blazer, wet look leggings and heals too – for a mere £14.99 you’ve got two outfits!
What more could you ask for?!
I love those winter days when you can snuggle up with that special person in a chunky knit watching TV and drinking hot chocolate – this is the perfect jumper for just that!
Keep things simple with some black jeans or jeggings, fluffly socks and slippers and the one you love!
Its relaxed but still cute and dressy and you know Miss Selfridge is good quality so even though its £39.99, it’ll probably last you more than just this winter! Think of it in a ‘price per wear’ way.
We all know, nights out through winter end up rainy and cold! So these floral printed leggings lend the perfect solution to being freezing cold!
They’re a cute, fashionable alternative to a dress.
Team with super high heels and a plain cami in any of the colours found in the floral design; deep blue would look perfect.
You may be a touch frightened to opt for printed leggings, but with them being such a dark colour they’ll hide a multitude of sins! And with the colour palette being along one tone you can add your accessories in almost any colour – clashing or coordinating. Perhaps violet heels, jewellery and bag?!
There just £22.00, and much more sensible for a winter night out than a short little dress!
If there is one fashion guarantee this year, its that Peplum is here to stay; tops and dresses, they’re everywhere.
They’re ultra-flattering and massive right now – why not stand out from the crowd in this stunning number from Miss Guided!
The sequins are absolutely perfect for nights out and you’ve got to have a little bit of sparkle in your wardrobe!
Just imagine the compliments you’d get in this!
Keep everything else really understated and simple, black jeans, heels and clutch, big earrings. In a stunning top like this, forget any neck-wear - its just too much, you don’t want to draw attention away from the top.
Amazingly this is just £32.99, and if you aren’t brave enough for the gold, they do it in black too.
(I might buy both!)
Finally, every girl needs a jumper dress in there wardrobe for winter.
Boots, chunky tights, and a leather biker jacket are the perfect accessories for this in the daytime.
I always think big items such as jumper dresses need to be in neutral colours like this one, in a stone/beige colour. Black will just wash you out and can be overbearing!
The little gold shoulder studs are a little homage to the grunge trend – and all for just £22.99. You could wear this right through from autumn to spring!
I feel sorry for my bank account! I can’t wait to buy everything from this little wish list.
What’re your hot autumn looks? Anything you can’t wait to buy?
