Bolder, brighter autumn shades
Summer is over and the dark nights are drawing in fast.
I have teamed up with Peacocks in the Rutherglen Exchange shopping centre to look at this season’s must-haves and I can assure you: you will be looking as hot as the summer sunshine in these stylish autumn/winter looks.
My first pick of the season is a fabulous bohemian look from Peacocks’ Boho Romantics collection.
The colours of this outfit just scream out autumn glamour. If you are seeking a smart/casual style for the weekend this may be your go-to look. These dark red jeggings can be paired with ankle boots or heels, depending on the occasion. I have matched them with a beautiful blue print blouse and a faux fur gilet.
To accessorise I have paired this outfit with a patchwork tote bag. This bag is a great size, has a secure zip fastening and, as if it wasn’t fabulous enough, it also comes with a matching purse. This could be also be a perfect Christmas gift this year for a loved one, coming in at £22.
My second garment of choice is probably my favourite of the season so far: the show-stopping jumper dress.
The turtle neck sweater has been a winter favourite in fashion for many years. The 1940s saw Hollywood movie stars introducing this look and the term ‘sweater girl’ first came about, replacing the term ‘pin up girl’. Fast forward 70 years and this style is still popular.
The jumper dress is the go-to look this season if you want to look hot in the cold weather. I have chosen this gorgeous burnt orange woollen dress and matched with black leggings and a simple pair of black ankle boots. You can update your wardrobe this autumn with this jumper dress from Peacocks for only £18.
My third choice was from Peacocks’ Winters Light collection. I have teamed up this beautiful, cold shoulder chiffon blouse with a pair of floral cigarette trousers.
Floral is a pattern which tends to be associated with spring and summer. Well, not any more. This season is changing our way of thinking and you will find a lot of heavily floral printed garments mixed in with dark, autumnal colours.
The chiffon blouse is such a versatile garment.
Whether you are heading to the office or for a night out on the town, this blouse
