Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Autumn With These Key Pieces 

The hot summer is nearly over and we will soon be returning to the crisp cold that we know so well – I couldn’t be more excited. Who doesn’t love cosy nights by the fire, snuggled up under a pile of blankets? A change in season obviously means a change in wardrobe, but if you don’t have the money to completely overhaul your wardrobe this autumn, don’t worry, here are a few key pieces that I always invest in to get my outfits winter ready. You can save even more on your winter staple items with voucher codes for Pretty Little Thing and get savings of up to 30% off. 

 

Winter Coats to the Ready 

If I could only purchase one new item for the autumn season, it would have to be a new coat. I have so many already it is beginning to become a problem but each year, there is a new style of coat in trend that I know I just have to have. It’s not exactly a purchase I should feel guilty for, think of all the colds I have prevented by having such a wide coat variety.  At the moment, this stone waterfall coat is what I am grabbing. It is perfectly light for the current summer-ish weather but keeps me from getting chilly when the sun goes down.

Bring on the Autumn with a Blazer 

If all of your coats are too heavy for the not-yet freezing autumn weather but you still need that extra cover up from the cold wind, a blazer is your new best friend. I think my blazers have to be my most reached for items in my wardrobe – not to mention they’re so on-trend right now. For a perfect autumn night out look, I buy a blazer one or two sizes bigger than I am, put a belt around it and make it into a blazer dress. I am so in love with the look. This oversized white blazer is both the perfect substitute for a coat and large enough to make it into a dress when I fancy it!

Back to Basics with a Black Bodysuit 

If you are looking for a chic, staple top to wear all through autumn, a black high neck bodysuit is the one. This item is so cheap but well worth investing in – it literally goes with anything. I wear this under a strappy dress for a cute day look or pair the bodysuit with some cigarette trousers and heels for a smart/ casual evening look. The high neck is perfect for keeping you warm when the temperatures get colder.

Switch it up with a Maxi Skirt 

Skirts are one of my favourite fashion pieces and I have always found them a lot more flattering on my body. However, I am always reluctant to wear them in autumn and winter in case my legs get cold. But I have recently discovered that Midaxi ribbed skirts are the perfect solution, with the combination of a midi and maxi skirt being the ideal  length to show a bit of ankle whilst not risking getting cold. This amazing skirt find means I can switch up my jeans for a more feminine look whilst not compromising on warmth. This one from Pretty Little Thing is perfect- it has a ribbed effect making the skirt thicker and warmer and the skirt is elasticated making it super figure hugging!

With these four staples, your autumn wardrobe is pretty much sorted! I obviously supplement with a few additions when I need to and but these are your core pieces, vital for keeping you chic all winter. 

How are you making the wardrobe transition from summer to autumn?

Spring Fashion Trends

Spring is here and just as every season comes with its temperature, it also comes with its fashion and style trends. So here is your ‘heads up post’, thank me later.

It is quite exciting to find out how far different items of clothing can evolve into something new, different, bold and spectacular. This spring is no exception.

So far, the spring fashion trends have shown a new height to creativity, there is a burst of colour, assortments of pattern and cuts.

For all the fashion conscious ones among us, some of the combinations you will see in this article may not come as much of a surprise, as some of the trends have showed up in one form or another in 2016. But of course, 2017 will come with its own kind of twists.

Here are some of the fashion trends you should look out for this spring.

  1. Stylish stripes

It seems like we’re going to be seeing a heavy dose of stripes this spring. The stripes make a great fashion statement especially when the stripes are moving in other directions other than the conventional horizontal or vertical stripes. This stripe trend also fits right into summer.

  1. Shoulders that make a statement

It is amazing to see how far fashion designers can go with what they can do in enhancing the shoulders. From off-shoulders and shoulder cuts to asymmetrical designs that fall over the shoulder and bold shoulders, there is hardly a style that has not been tried. And this spring, the shoulder trend is a single shoulder cut, so look around for that if you like.

  1. Bright cheerful colours

Spring has always been known to be a cheerful season. So seeing bright colours as part of the 2017 spring fashion trend was not surprising. Vibrant colours like yellow, and soft pastel colours like pink, seem to be some of the favourites this spring.

Bright colours have always made a statement and work great in the spring.

  1. Flashback to the 80’s

The iconic 80’s fashion is one that can never grow old. The 80’s outfits have been able to touch all the details that give definition to every piece. Floral patterns are bold against the backdrop of the bright spring vibes. Aside from the patterns, the interesting cuts that show of some skin have made its way to a good number of ensembles.

What are your thoughts on these spring fashion trends? Will you be rocking any of them?
