Bolder, brighter au­tumn shades

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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
