This year is going by so fast, we only said happy new year some minutes ago right?We say goodbye to Summer in a few weeks, and usher in Autumn officially. I am seriously looking forward to Autumn fashion. There is something so comfy about it. The light layers and booties always look so stylish. I can’t wait to play dress up!

 

The beauty about Autumn fashion is that you can incorporate many of your summer pieces into your new season’s wardrobe, by styling them right. Summer and Autumn pieces and accessories can work hand in hand to create the perfect wardrobe. You may need to get some in essentials in order to pair up existing pieces and accessories correctly. So this Late Summer Fashion Inspo/Wishlist post may come in handy. Here are a few pieces and accessories you may need to get this look right.

 

The Trench Coat

The Trench Coat is one of the most important pieces when it comes to late Summer/Autumn fashion. It is an effortless stylish piece. Great for dressing up or down, and for dealing with the wet weather. I always like to have at least 2 trench coats in my wardrobe. My preferred colours are black and camel brown, like the stunning piece above, by Aquascutum London.  The minimalist design and the functionality of the trench coat makes it an absolute must-have this season.

 

An Umbrella for Late Summer/Autumn Fashion

I am usually not good with big umbrellas. They are usually misplaced somehow, so I tend to stay away from them. However, a small umbrella that would fit into my handbag would be fantastic. It would even be more fantastic if it looked as good as this stunning compact club check umbrella by Aquascutum London.

I like to have a scarf with me at all times, especially during the Summer and Autumn months. Scarves are fashion essentials, and I can’t be without them. They are also great multi-tasking pieces. I use a scarf for a light cover when it gets chilly. I also love styling it as a head tie or neck tie. This beautiful Pandora Bird of Paradise scarf would be a great wardrobe addition. I love the silk blend and the fact that it is lightweight. When it comes to scarves, the lighter the scarf, the better for me.

 

Club Check Fold Handbag

Now Autumn fashion would not be complete without a stylish bag like this Club Check Fold Handbag.  I love the check design. It would look effortless stylish when paired with the check umbrella above. This stunning handbag oozes class and sophistication. I want it now!

How to Make Clothes Look Expensive

There are times when you have to style on a budget, but doesn’t mean that you can’t look like a million bucks. For as long as I can remember, there has been a huge misconception about dressing and making your clothes look expensive. How do we make clothes look expensive? Many ladies believe that they won’t look classy and expensive unless they buy really expensive clothing or accessories. I don’t blame them as looking expensive is usually associated with expensive brands.

I have done a lot of experimenting with my outfits, accessories and grooming, and I have discovered 6 ways you can make your clothes look expensive.

 

Develop a sophisticated carriage

I know that this tip will come as a surprise to you, but the way you wear your clothes plays a huge role in how expensive you look. If you wear your clothes and walk around with a slouch, no matter how expensive the clothes you put on are, you won’t look classy at all.

The secret is in the way you carry yourself. Walk with your head held high and full of confidence. Even with the simplest of all clothing can look very appealing if you wear it with an air of confidence.

 

Make your clothes look expensive with Accessories

The smallest item can make the biggest difference. If you want your clothes to look expensive, then you need to choose your accessories wisely.

Gold accessories can make any outfit look expensive. Pearl necklaces, earrings and bracelets have the same powerful effect. You can also put on large jewellery for that flattering look.

 

Go for black

Don’t under-estimate the power of the colour black. Black outfits are characterized as formal attire. Let’s face it, black looks expensive, whether you wear a black dress, black skirt or a black blouse.

The best thing about black is that it is simple and it goes with anything. It also enhances the beauty of your accessories against the black. So if you wear anything black, you can never go wrong.

Stick to classic pieces

Sometimes we get carried away thinking that looking expensive means wearing more clothes than usual. The truth is that you don’t need to go too far or think too hard to look expensive.

Classic pieces like a collared blouse tucked in a black pencil skirt or a maxi dress in a pastel colour can make you look expensive.

 

Have your clothes tailored

Not every outfit comes out perfect. And sometimes with some tweaks here and there, you can make your outfits look fabulous.

Fitting clothing that shows your shape makes your clothes look expensive. Adding a couple of simple embellishments or removing some of the parts that are not necessaries could make the biggest change in your outfits.

 

Keep your makeup and nails neutral

Aside from dressing well, accessorizing and proper carriage, neutral makeup and nails can make you look expensive. You may think that it may not make much of a difference, but that’s not true. Your makeup and nails all have a role they play in your final look.

What is the Proper Attire for a Banquet

Sometimes, figuring out the attire when invited to a banquet becomes problematic. Banquets can be formal or informal. To choose the appropriate attire for a banquet, one must know how formal the invitation is. At times, dress codes are also mentioned with the banquet invitation which makes it quite easier to choose the attire.

It is better to pay some attention while considering the attire rather than wearing the wrong thing and getting embarrassed. The theme of the occasion and the formality of the function can best describe what should be worn. Terani Couture’s banquet dresses can help you in taking this decision if you put forward the details of the occasion in front of them.

Here are some banquet style tips you may find handy –

 

Formal Banquet

A lot of hard work and efforts are put into organising a formal banquet so one must show some respect by dressing according to the event. You can also ask the host for guidance if you are unsure about what the term ‘formal’ means. Let the season, invitation and hours be your guide to dress up. For formal banquets, men can choose to wear any black or any other dark coloured suit along with conservative accessories. Black or white bow tie can give any formal attire a complete look.

Men should avoid wearing khakis, white jackets and polo shirts. For women, the most appropriate formal banquet attire can be any dark coloured gown. But they can also go for any black dress or skirt of cocktail length along with suitable accessories. Women can accessorise them by adding heels, dazzling clutch and swaying earrings. Flat sandals, maxi dresses and pantsuits are a big no for formal banquets.

 

Semi formal Banquet

Choosing a semi formal attire is a bit tricky, as it is a step down from the formal attire but quite formal if compared with the casual attire. Among all dress codes, semi formal is the most confusing one. Men can wear any dark coloured suit paired up with some light coloured shirt. Tie is optional when it comes to semi formal dress code. Leather shoes will be the best match with this dress code. Women can go for any dress or pantsuit that comes in a dressy fabric like silk or satin. The best length for such events is a little above the knee. At such occasions, women can wear any flat sandals and fashion jewellery. Women have a lot of variety in semi formal attire.

 

Informal Banquet

Any casual attire is acceptable in these informal banquets. Men can go for polo shirts, jeans, khakis, sports coats or any nice t-shirts. They can pair up the dress with loafers or trainers. Depending on the season or occasion, men can also go for wearing a blazer or sweat shirt. Women can go for any nice shirt paired with skirts or jeans. They can also wear some short dress with frills or bows. They can choose any flat leather shoes along with the accessories that suit the dress and occasion. Just remember that being too loud will not look good when it comes to wearing the right attire for a banquet.
