A blazer can pull together an entire outfit in an effortlessly chic way. Kate Moss and Sienna Miller are big fans of the preppy blazer look. Throw one of over a summery outfit of shorts and a tank and look instantly cool. For a fresh change, opt for a bright coloured blazer, such as hot pink, over a neutral top.
This simple item seamlessly eases our summertime shorts, dresses and tanks, into Autumn-wear. Pair simple black tights with your favourite floral dress and booties for a night on the town. A bold-print pair of tights works well with a solid-coloured dress or shorts and tank combo.
We’re big fans of the little black bootie. The block heel lengthens the legs and the enclosed shoe keeps your feet warm and toasty during those chilly Autumn nights. Lace-up booties add a girly charm to any outfit.
We’re seeing leather everywhere! Team a leather dress or leather pair of high-waisted shorts with hosiery and you have an on-trend outfit, perfect for a Saturday night. And don’t worry about purchasing the real thing, faux leather or “pleather” as it’s sometimes known as, is budget and Vegan-friendly.
