It’s Autumn and the nascent winter chill is in the air. There are new fall clothes in the shops, beautiful fall clothes in our closets, and it is finally their turn to take the dance floor. Autumn is the favourite season of so many of my friends and for good reason. The weather is crisp and fresh, and the clothes are a refreshing three hundred and sixty-degree change from the summer clothes that have dominated the past months. Autumn is the perfect season to show off cold weather fashion without it being so cold that all clothing is hidden by that extra thick and long coat!
So what’s new on the trend front for this Autumn? Animal print seems to be ruling the jungle at the moment – it is everywhere from dresses to coats and bags to shoes. Animal print has always been a fall classic; however, the standout print is not without its critics. It is probably one of the more controversial prints that people either love or love to hate. Fans enjoy its boldness and critics find it harsh and overbearing.
I stand divided on ‘animal print’ love – for me, it depends on the fabric and the exact print that has been used on an item. Generally, I find I enjoy wearing it most when I accessorize with it, rather than ‘go heavy’ with it covering the whole outfit.
Animal prints work well with classic fall colours and I find that pairing them with black, tan and red is a foolproof recipe for a sophisticated Autumn look. In this lookbook, I have paired my lovely animal print flats with jeans, an oversized cosy black jumper, a classic tan coat and a red crossbody bag. I love everything about this look; it represents my personal fashion statement perfectly.
I think this time of the year is a great time to invest in some classic clothes that will carry you through the winter and into spring. in my opinion, investing in classics such as black jumpers and tan coats will provide you with an effective canvas to build your winter look – whatever that may be. I hope you enjoy this look and feedback is always welcome. As always, thank you for reading my blog and have a fabulous weekend.
