Autumn. It's a confusing season. One day it's so cold your fingers feel like they might fall off, and the next day your sweltering in your knitwear. It can be hard to dress appropriately these days in order to be warm/cool enough. My favourite way to prepare for days like these is through layers. Lot and lots of layers. If it's cold outside, you're sorted. And if it's a little milder, you can remove a layer or two. Here's a few of my top tips & trends when mixing different layers.
Cami dresses/tops and blouses: It's a massive trend at the moment, but it's also a very practical way to wear your favourite, more lightweight pieces in the cooler months.
Skinny Jeans: In particular ripped skinny jeans, look great layered under longer tops or dresses. I've worn this particular pair under a knee length cami dress and becasue they're so fitted they look really great. They're also warmer than tights or leggings, and when worn with shorter tops, they keep the booty covered (where leggings fail).
Blanket scarf/cape: Whoever invented this blanket that you can wear outside, in public, and it's classed as actual clothing is a genius. It might be a bit of a Marmite trend but I personally love it, due to the comfort and warmth factor. I love wearing this to University and sitting at my desk wrapped up in it. It can be worn on it's own over your outfit, or you can layer it over your coat too (for those extra chilly days). Just remember to keep the underneath coat that bit shorted than the cape to keep the proportions right.
And also remember to have fun with all your different layers, becasue at the end of the day, that is what fashion is all about.
