I think it’s safe to say that autumn is well and truly here in the UK, but part of me doesn’t want to let go of summer just yet. I decided that the best way to transition into the autumn weather/fashion, would be to wear a skirt and top, with a pair of thigh-high boots and a bomber jacket.. I suppose it’s that time of year to start rocking these trends again, which I’m definitely not complaining about!
I’ve wanted a ‘band tee’ style top for a long time, but something just doesn’t feel right about buying one with a band on the front whose music I don’t listen to.. I don’t know if that’s just me, but, for this reason, it made buying one quite a difficult task. I spent ages looking, and then I came across this black T-shirt on Pretty Little Thing – which was exactly what I was looking for. I love the soft material, and how easy it is to tie up at the front, for a slightly edgier look. It has that rock chic vibe, with its use of colour and imagery, and I love the ‘New York’ slogan on the front.. I’m obsessed with New York.
This skirt caught my eye as soon as I saw it in H&M, and I knew I wanted it right away. I love the simple detailing and soft fabric, and also how it looks when it’s on. The detail on either side of this skirt can really enhance the shape of your thighs and hips, which, when worn with a pair of thigh-highs, can change the overall look. You could of course style this skirt however you like, but I decided to go for this look as I like how the material of the skirt and boots are so similar, and they really complement one another, along with the overall outfit.
I’m not really one for wearing coats and layering up, but I’m so glad I bought this cropped pink bomber jacket! It’s the perfect size to keep you warm, without it being too hot and puffy, and it’s also super easy and effortless to style. It would look amazing with a pair of skinny jeans, but I opted to wear it with this outfit – which I think needs a bit of colour. This touch of pink made such a difference to an otherwise all-black outfit, and kept me warm throughout the day.
These boots were certainly made for walking..! Just wow. I’m obsessed with them already, and this was my first time wearing them. If you’re looking for a pair of statement thigh-high boots, these are the ones for you. The faux suede material is so soft, I couldn’t stop touching them all day. Another thing I love about the material is how they manage to stay in place without having to constantly pull them back up. The peep-toe design really set these thigh-high boots apart from others, and they’re comfortable to wear for so many different occasions. You definitely won’t have trouble styling these beauties!
Velvet is a huge trend in the fashion world right now, so I decided to buy this velvet choker to complete my look. It made such a difference to this outfit, and it’s a statement accessory everyone should try out at least once.
