Autumn Accessories

Apart from the random freak heatwave that hit this weekend, it's safe to say Autumn has arrived! The streets are paved with golden leaves, the days are getting shorter and there's a definite chill in the air. Autumn is my favourite fashion season; I love the colour palette and the endless layering options that the colder weather provides.

Primark coat £25 // New Look boots £29.99 & bag £24.99 // River Island leather look jeans (old) // Dorothy Perkins blouse £28 // Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses 

I kept the chill out of this simple leather trousers & white shirt combo by throwing on my Primark trench. I picked it up a couple of months ago but am only really getting the good of it now. I love the contrast of the black faux leather against the basic cream coat and the quilted effect gives it more of a luxe edge. Making it look more Zara than Primark! Burberry experimented with different textures for their classic trenches this AW and the people at Primark were obviously paying attention.

Now onto accessories. Oxblood was a huge trend last year and it looks like isn't going anywhere soon. I'm not sure if the "fash pack" are still using the oxblood term but the shops are filled with the deep red, burgundy colour. It's the perfect tone for Fall; it looks great against the Autumnal palette of orange, yellow and golden brown. I'd spotted this bag and boots when I bought a pair of trousers in New Look and ended up going back for them the next day. Accessories are an easy way to add a seasonal update and a splash of colour to a monochrome outfit.

It's the details that caught my eye on these accessories. The 3 buckles on the side of the boots, the gold coloured metal hardware and zip trim on the bag; small details that make them appear more expensive than they actually are. The tote bag is also available in tan or navy but the red stands out for me. 

How are you updating your wardrobe for the new season?
