If you haven’t noticed from my Instagram, I like mustard. Not the sauce though, couldn’t think of anything worse to be honest. But the colour… my oh my I like it, I like it a lot. Now that autumn is firmly upon us it’s time for a wardrobe update. I tend to wait until the end of September before raiding the likes of ZARA and Topshop, as I like to see the key colours of the season before dropping a mass of cash on clothes.
A new season means new opportunities to mix up your wardrobe. The girly summer florals are soon to go back into hibernation, and block colours are about to take over. Fishnet anything has been a massive trend this year, throw away the tights and opt for a top for a bold statement. Obviously make sure you’ve got a cute bra on (unlike mine, looks like Beckie didn’t pack properly for this shoot) and pair with a unique textured skirt or trousers. Top it off with a block colour jacket to bring the look to life and some large sunnies to protect from the last of the summer sun. I’m never without a pair of sunglasses, pesky UV rays can get through even the thickest clouds.
I know it can seem daunting pairing so many textures together, and trust me this time last year I would have run straight back to my cosy woolly jumpers and chelsea boots. But AW17 is the season of bold statements, bright colours and structured pieces. Take risks with your outfits, it’ll do wonders for your confidence.
