As you’ll know from my previous posts, I am ridiculously excited to be back in thick jumpers, tights, boots, the lot. And since it’s the beginning of October, I’m sharing with you my autumn and winter fashion essentials. Take from this what you like and let me know in the comments what your staples are!
Clean, crisp and perfect for layering. I will be honest and admit that I pinch my mum’s shirts but to be fair, you can end up paying quite a bit for a well fitted, good quality shirt! I’ve got my eye on this oversized shirt at the mo.
How can you not wear tartan in the colder months? I stay away from big tartan prints but I cherish my scarf I wore in this post from Primark last year. Maybe this year I’ll branch out a bit and get some tartan leggings or something!
Not only do I love a winter coat to keep me warm but I think it turns into your signature item of clothing. I always wear my trusty parka jacket which I’ve had for a couple of years now but there are others who swear by their oversized boyfriend coat or whatever it may be. Just make sure it’s the perfect coat for you because it will be staying with you for a while!
It goes without saying, I love a bit of leather and I think AW is the perfect time to incorporate it into your outfit. Whether that’s a leather jacket, leggings, jeans or just a bag. I still haven’t bought myself a leather jacket but I love leather panel leggings and jeans, paired with a thick knitted jumper – brilliant.
I’m so picky when it comes to buying black boots but this year I’ve got two pairs. My trust Deena and Ozzy ones and my new, smarter Office heeled ones. Black boots are such a staple it’s ridiculous, they can be thrown on with every outfit and can often toughen up a girly outfit.
Everyone needs a new LBD for Christmas parties, it goes without saying. I think winter is the perfect time to invest in a new dress and check out the ASOS sale which is wear I always buy my dresses for the best bargains.
Of course I couldn’t complete this post without including my favourite things ever… beanies! I can’t wear an outfit when it’s cold without chucking a beanie on, it’s physically impossible for me. Topshop have some adorable bobble hats at the moment and I’m definitely gonna be purchasing this one!
Last but not definitely not least, we all need a snuggly Christmas jumper. I’ve already started eyeing up a few this year in the men’s section on ASOS but of course the best are yet to come. I’m quite tempted to buy this Halloween jumper as well!
