After pleasantly surprising us with a great summer; it seems the cold and grey British weather is back with a vengeance. Whilst I am sad that I am breaking-up with my summer outfits (rather unceremoniously); I am definitely a tad bit happy that the layering season is finally begun. A boxy, furry gilet is an easy way to layer and spruce up your AW wardrobe. It can keep you warm yet doesn’t weigh you down like a bulky winter-jacket plus it has a rock “n” roll edge to it.
For a casual-day look, I’ve paired my faux fur gilet with an oriental print light cardigan, black skinnies and a hat. Although I rarely like to go matching-matching; here I’ve matched my slightly mannish shoes in brown ( a must-have for accessory for AW-13) with the gilet’s brown belt. A hat and a red bag ( for a pop of colour) and I am all set for autumn.
Jeans: Dorothy Perkins, Faux Fur Gilet; Next (last year’s), Cardigan: Zara, Hat & shoes: H&M, Bag: India, Mac lippy creme Del a Femme and Maybelline smoky eye kohl
There’s nothing more cosier than an over sized outerwear and comfortable skinny jeans–perfect for an autumn day. Don’t you think?
