I feel like I’ve blinked and it’s winter, suddenly I’m wearing gloves and the fog seems to be a permanent fixture in the air. Now Halloween is over everything is full steam ahead for Christmas, but one of my favourite things about winter is Guy Fawkes Night which I am super excited for. I love wrapping up and watching the fireworks even though I feel like I’m wrapping up everyday now anyway!
I absolutely adore a jumper dress this time of the year, it shows just enough skin for it to be more of an autumn outfit rather than fully winter item. Thick block coloured stripes add a quirky motif to a simple dress, the burnt brown colour is the perfect shade of the season. It adds a visual point in a timeless black look.
It’s a must to own a simple black duster coat, I bought this gorgeous jacket from Primark last year and it goes with practically everything. The length of the coat contrasts ideally with the length of the dress managing to show only a flirtatious amount skin.
This cute woolly hat is so adorable, after the temperature dropped I went on a mad search to find a cute bobble hat. My prayers were answered inside River Island who are just killing it with their autumn winter range! I really love the beige colour because it fits with most colour and isn’t as neutral as just a black hat.
I’m still obsessing over these thigh-highs, they are phenomenal right?! Another win from River Island, in this weather they are practical as well as being beautiful and make my legs look so long which is a massive plus. Since they are thigh-highs they work amazingly with the different lengths of the coat and dress.
Accessorising this look is my trusty Bayswater, I’ve put the fringed bag aside
with the summer! It’s a timeless bag that has served me well over the years and has
come back out for the end of these.
When I was on my search for a hat I also happened to set my eyes on these lovely suede gloves which you may have seen on my Instagram! They have a leather piece around the thumb and have a thin knit lining which is so warm.
It makes me feel so ready for the winter.
