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?

Summer Fashion Trends 2019

I am loving summer fashion trends this year. It is full of colour and life. I enjoy browsing the high street shops, just to take in all the lovely summer fashion designs. Summer is one of my favourite fashion seasons. Just incase you are wondering which summer fashion styles are in vogue this 2019, here are some summer fashion trends you may spot when out and about –

Flat Footwear

I am a huge lover of fans. You can easily catch me rocking a pair especially in the summer months. Most times, I am out and about with the twins, so wearing heels is usually not practical. I save them for when I don’t have to take too many steps.

Good to know flats are popular this summer. I have been wearing them a lot this summer holiday.

 

Oversized Hats

I love wearing oversized hats in the summer months. They protect me from the harsh sun rays and keep me stylish at the same time. So I am happy to see oversized hats in vogue this year.

I see all sorts of oversized hat designs in the shops and on social media. It is amazing to see there are so many options available.

 

Tie-Dye Pieces

I love tie-dye pieces. They are always colourful and summer is all about colour so not surprised to see it is trending this summer. It is good to see a 60s fashion trend back in vogue in 2019.

This is one trend I am looking forward to shopping this season. I am hoping to get some subtle tie-dye pieces to take on holiday with me.

Say It With Neon

If you a lover of colour, you would love the fact that Neon is back in trend this summer. This is not a trend I can see myself exploring ever, but I do like seeing the pieces on those brave enough to wear them. They are usually eye catching and really pretty.

 

Shorts For Summer

Shorts are always on trend in the summer months. They are stylish and comfy to wear, which is why they are always so popular. I love my shorts and pretty much live in them during the summer months. Leggings are my preferred pants but it can get too warm for them at this time of the year. Which is why I wear more of shorts.

The knee length shorts- what the fashion critics call sensible shorts are now on trend, and I am loving it. I find them more comfortable to wear when  out and about.

Mens Fashion – How to dress for a summer wedding

The wedding season is in full swing and it is time to start planning what to wear if you have a summer wedding to intend. I like to look well put together when I attend weddings. Weddings are a good excuse to play dress up, so I like to go all out on such occasions. I love seeing men dressed up smart too! A man in a good suit attire would be admired by many so it is a great idea to go dressed up looking very smart. Here are some mens fashion tips for dressing for a summer wedding.

Dress code?

The first thing to do is to pay attention to the dress code if any. That way you have a feel of what sort of wedding it is and how best to dress. If in doubt, the best way to dress to a wedding is to go overdressed. That can easily be overlooked and even admire. But going underdressed is a no-no.

Get a great suit

The easiest way to nail a summer wedding look is to make sure your suit looks good. I prefer dark coloured suits because they tend to look nicer. I also like when a man’s suit looks good on him, so having the right size for a great fit is crucial. It is best to go into a mens store and try out the suit to be sure you get the right size. A suit is not something you want to buy online unless you are certain it is going to fit great. Also, ensure that the fabric of the suit fits the weather. For summer weddings, linen suits work better. You can opt for a linen suit mixed with cotton or silk to avoid excessive crinkling.

 

Pay attention to the shirt

The last thing you want is to have a not so great looking shirt underneath a great suit. So make sure the shirt you pick suits the occasion. For summer weddings, you can opt for short sleeve collar shirts rather than the traditional dress shirts.

 

Let your shoes do the talking

When it comes to menswear/mens fashion, shoes are very important. For weddings, only formal shoes would work, so don’t be tempted to wear anything else. You don’t want to ever go to a wedding wearing a pair of sandals or trainers. Regardless of how warm it is, proper shoes are to be worn on a suit at a wedding.
