Autumn can be easily defined as the best season to serve up an abundance of style throughout the streets.
It’s not too cold where you must triple layer every piece of clothing to avoid hypothermia, and likewise not too warm where clothing is uncomfortably sticky. Autumn is a great time of year to showcase the wardrobe favourites such as trench coats, jumpers, scarves, and ankle boots.
This year has truly delivered on fun trends to work with that can be done without breaking the bank. The return of animal print is a god sent that can transform any inexpensive outfit when done correctly. The Autumn child; checked clothing is a personal favourite that integrates well with the season colours. Cord seems to have nuzzled its way into this year’s Autumn trends, giving the opportunity to create a slightly nostalgic 90s look.
There are several items in the high street shops at the moment that can aid your creative flow in helping achieve the seasonal trends without giving the need to smash open the piggy bank.
- Animal ambition
Animal print can be intimidating. However, one idea is to start subtly and then opt for the big pieces. For example, the first investment in this trend can be a simple pair of ballet slippers from BooHoo.
These look great with a simple pair of blue/white jeans and a beige jumper or with a dark skirt and tights.
Animal print has grown a fondness for the texture of satin. It looks super expensive and many online clothing brands offer a cheaper alternative.
This Pretty Little Thing shirt goes well with a pair of white jeans and simple flats and as shown in the picture, a solid gold piece necklace.
This Quiz skirt is one of their many satin animal print pieces. The skirt can be paired with a white tee and trainers for a casual look and black heels for a more formal.
Unfortunately, it is time to invest in those heavier pieces to keep warm. It can be difficult to find a cheap jacket that will satisfy all-round stylish and budget-friendly. However, here are a few in the shops currently that are worth the investment.
This style jacket was huge last year and can be seen creeping back into the shops again for a comeback. This Zara jacket styled with all black or darker colours looks chic and can be worn straight into winter thanks to its warmth.
A camel coat is one of those all-rounders that can brighten up a wardrobe autumn/winter wardrobe. They can look really smart with blue jeans and a simple white shirt or for a more street look, opt for a plain hooded hoodie underneath with joggers and chunky trainers.
