Today I wanted to do a little post on my must-haves for Autumn/Winter this year!
For me, A/W is all about darker colours and comfy styles. I’ve never been one for big fluffy jumpers or Uggs but I do love classy coats over my usual clobber to keep me snuggly!
Berry is definitely the one colour I’ll be hoarding this A/W. There is something so classy and comforting about berry tones, they’re not too dark that they can’t transition into early S/S the following year but they definitely bring you away from the bright pastels of this year’s style.
Lipstick is always the first item on my list; get the right shade and it’ll see you through any season’s changing trends! This gorgeous berry shade is Rebel, lined with Currant both by Mac. I love that although these shades are not made to be partners, they go perfectly together! If like me you’ve been hunting for the perfect berry lipstick for agesss, this is definitely the one for you. Absolute fave.
Next up, a berry nail polish to complete any look. By picking up a lipstick and polish you can tick off the berry trend without buying clothes! This shade from Lipsy is perfect, such a deep tone that actually flatters most skin tones, especially my very porcelain Irish skin! There’s no filter on either of these pictures so the shades you’re seeing are true to life! 👌
Another of my favourites for this season is the beautiful ‘Ladies Night’ from the SoSu by Suzanne Jackson range. Absolutely gorgeous colours in this range and such a professional finish! I have one in almost every colour, obsessed isn’t the word.
For a little change of colour, ‘She Means Business’ also from the SoSu range is a stunning deep purple that can vamp up any outfit, a beautiful dark pop of colour for A/W.
If you want to branch out into A/W clothing there are endless options! Penneys, H&M and Boohoo all have stunning ranges in the most gorgeous colours (so many options for every style so you’re guaranteed to find a shade you love!)
The above dress from H&M is a very new purchase and I can’t wait to wear it! The style is so cute and casual, perfect for work (a pair of heels could dress it up though!) I love the really unusual print, hard to find a stunning floral design that isn’t summery! Again, playing on the berry trend 👍 In the same haul, I picked up the below. Same style dress in grey, solely for work purposes! I am obsessed with leopard print and this cropped jumper is beautiful! It’s not hairy or uncomfortable, thank God! The little green skater skirt is adorable, it screamed A/W at me, for some reason and oddly enough it looks amazing with the jumper. All 4 items for less than €60!
Although it’s not berry (shocker) the below coat is one of my favourite purchases of the year. It’s a pale, dusky pink colour so it does fall into the trend and looks amazing paired with berry! As mentioned above, a good coat can literally change any outfit into A/W perfection. Snap this up in the Boohoo sale before it’s gone (comes in white, black & yellow too) only €20!
I did of course find a berry coat on Boohoo and at only €20 it was another must buy piece! It’s very similar to the above but it has slightly more texture on the fabric. I just adore these coats, they’re warm enough to keep you snug indoors without giving up on the style factor! Head over to the Boohoo site now!! The leopard print jumper I’m wearing below is from H&M and was just under €20. Seriously snug but not hairy or itchy!
No self-respecting fashionista hasn’t got a camel coat in her wardrobe! It took me a while to find the perfect one but now that I have I just can’t imagine life without one! It’s perfect with a full black outfit, God knows I have enough dark pieces in my wardrobe. This gorgeous coat was another treasure find from Boohoo and again it was only €20. Can I just be the new ambassador for Boohoo please?
So to finish, my A/W look has been and will continue to be all about the dark vampy colours. I love a good berry tone and mix in some nude and black (maybe even some purples and greys) and you have yourself an entire winter wardrobe! Perfection.
