Outfit Post – Hello Autumn

Hello October! We woke up today and realised it is officially Autumn. Or Fall like my American friends call it. The heating would be coming on anytime from now, and the leaves have gone brown. I like Autumn weather. It is a beautiful season and the chill isn’t always freezing cold, which is a good thing. It also means I can start to play dress up with my scarves, jackets, trainers and boots. Which I have been looking forward to doing kind of.

Autumn fashion is all about light layers and cool colours. I am still in the process of sorting out my Autumn/Winter wardrobe, so here is probably my last summerish look for the year. Enjoy it..

The pink shirt is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some months ago in the US. I really like the design and pink colour. It is a shirt that you can just throw on with a pair of jeans and you are good to go. The quality of the shirt is also great. It is from a trusted brand so I wasn’t expecting anything less.

The metallic sneakers are also new from Italy. I am super in love with the metallic shade and the design. The sneakers are super trendy and easy to style. I think it goes well with the pieces I have on. It is also very comfy which is a plus. Life is too short to walk around in uncomfortable shoes.

I must confess, I would miss the casual summer looks. They are so easy to style and dress up. Wearing layers of clothing would have to take some time before I get used to the trend all over again. Thanks to the longest summer ever we had, I have been styling summer looks from April up until September. But it is now time for Autumn Fashion.

Outfit Post – A Tommy Hilfiger Casual Look

Summer is on the day out. The days and nights are getting chilly with more rain. And Autumn (or Fall like my American friends call it) is definitely on the way in. I would miss the long sunny days but definitely not the extreme temperatures. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons so I am looking forward to it. I love the autumn/winter fashion, and can’t wait to start styling some pieces on her. But for now, I need to publish all my summer outfits pictures on Fashion and Style Police. This Tommy Hilfiger Casual Look was taken some weeks ago. I love the colours styled here. They look so good together.

Lately, I have been so into casual looks. It could be my own way of making the most of the summer season before it bids us farewell until 2019. Or it could just be me wanting to stay dead comfy. I like this look here. it was dead easy to style. I got the T-shirt from Macy’s while holidaying in the US earlier in the year. Everything else I have on is an oldie but goldie.

As a fashion blogger, many would think I shop on a regular basis, which is so far from the truth. With 2 growing toddlers, I hardly shop for myself these days. But when I do, I make sure I invest in quality pieces so they last a long time. That way I have more clothing and accessories for longer.

Style Tip

Go for quality over quantity and save money in the long run.

How to Wear Black in the Summer

Black is a staple in every wardrobe. There’s hardly anyone who doesn’t have a black outfit in their closet. It’s versatile and can be combined with other pieces to achieve that perfect look. For some people black is a go to colour.

Although some people are skeptical that black can be worn in the summer, I believe that black can work all year round. Black absorbs a lot of heat and it may be a little too much for some people. But there are ways you can make it work even in the heat.

Before we get into the styling tips for black coloured outfits here are some critical points you need to take note of.

Since black absorbs a lot of heat from the sun, you need to make sure that you stick to black fabrics that are lightweight. So stay away from velvet and wooly black fabrics. It will also be best to avoid leather trouser this summer and switch to something lighter or go for skirts instead.

Now that we have those important points out-of-the-way, here are some ways you can wear black in the summer.

 

  1. Combine black with patterns

The summer vibe is always fun, colourful and playful. Black on its own can be very formal, but when you combine fun patterns with a black top or bottoms they make a very flattering ensemble. It doesn’t matter what kind of patterns you decide to combine your black pieces with. You can go for florals, animal prints, polka dots or stripes. Black works with pretty much any pattern.

The beauty of combining patters with black pieces helps to tone down the patterns such that the outfit remains colourful but not overwhelming.

  1. Lace up

Lace gives off a flattering classy feel. Black lace tops looks amazing with a pair of jeans and even a nice skirt. This outfit would work well on a summer night out. You may also opt for a black lace dress to make that classy summer evening look.

 

  1. Black statement tees

For that laid black summer look a black statement t-shirt over a pair of denim jeans or shorts are all you need. Style them with a pair of sneakers to give your outfit a nice relaxed look.

Black statement t-shirts like band t-shirts or slogan tees are a great way to incorporate black into your summer outfits. To stay cool, combine them with shorts or a trendy skirt and a pair of sandals.

 

  1. Keep it flowy

Flowy outfits keep you cool during the summer. It may be a black flowy midi or maxi dress. To get more out of your black outfits, you can add more style with a black flowy skirt. Layer a cute colourful top with your black flowy skirt.

It’s not only skirts or dresses that can be on the flowy side. A black chiffon shirt or an off shoulder top or a top with an asymmetrical neckline aren’t only chic but cool for the summer.

Make sure you keep this in mind to balance it out. If you’re wearing a flowy top, pair it with skinny jeans, leggings or a pencil skirt. But if your bottoms are flowy, opt for a snugger top or crop top.
