How I put 'Autumn' into a simple OOTD.

Wednesday, 31 October 2018

I wanted to share with you a simple outfit I put together for a COSTA trip! I love Autumn so much and autumnal oranges are really in right now.

 First of all I know that this outfit is a little OTT for a Costa trip but I am not one to hold back for anybody. I watched a video the other day which said 'dress like a party everyday and the party will come to you' (watch) and I could not agree more.

As an overview, I chose to wear a Primark Trench style coat in a gorgeous dusk orange colour, a primary denim skirt- a slightly more muted orange, an Armani top to draw add depth to the outfit, new look lace up platform boots and oil spill round glasses. Now that is the basics and the basics only.

So lets get deeper 

'That' Jacket ... A Jacket is a great way to spice up any outfit you wear. It provides you with opportunity for layers, warmth and experimentation. I felt rather out of my comfort zone wearing it, which made it so brave and warming to me. The colour really draws attention to Autumn, the burnt bonfire kind of feel and the coherence with the leaves which lay on the ground during the season- it is just.. magical. Trench coats or at least categorically similar coats are very popular in the season as they keep you warm but aren't too fleecy- this really did make my outfit what it was.

The Skirt ... Denim skirts are really in style right now, especially within the student trends. Whichever store you go to, you are bound to find a great selection of staple skirts- particularly denim ones. Primark have an amazing selection of skirts for this season, all of which have different styles, colours, materials and you can find almost anything to suit your needs (the majority of which are £8)! I picked this as I thought it would partner well with sixth form life, as I put all of my energy needed for school work into getting ready itself... oops. The colour again attracted me as it represented the 'fall' look. The material is soft, cosy and warm so even with the chills of the season you continue to feel warmth. I paired it with my jacket as I always try and partner at least 2 items of clothing in an outfit together to show structure.

Why this top? In contrast too block colour I wanted something different. In this instance, the matching skirt and coat would be destroyed with a patterned tee so I needed something graphic. I chose the Armani top as it added (unnecessary) expense to the outfit, making it look more designer and put together. The white contrasted with the orange colours, adding brightness and life to the whole outfit. The black of which connected with the boots adding subtle but clever partnership. 

Sunglasses, in Autumn? Believe it or not, it is sunny in Autumn! In fact I find it one of the brightest times of the year with the consistent golden hour. I chose to incorporate 'fall' to the accessory with a tortoise shell frame choice, the orange bringing something again to autumn colours. The oil spill added a pop of colour to the outfit so I didn't look completely drowned in dullness. 

The boots guarding the puddles of both rain and the floods of compliments You would not believe just how many compliments I have had on these boots, and if I was looking at them I would be envying them too. I got these last year in new look, they are black platform boots with a 4" heel. Although suede, the platform lifts the shoe from the ground so they don't get dirty - they are wearable all year round (even winter due to its grip). They lace up and they look gorgeous. I love boots in the Autumn and I am not the only one, but these? These are to die for. I am not 100% sure but I do want to say that these are around £25-£30 (totally worth it).

So thats it I guess for my simple but classy OOTD, what was your favourite thing about this outfit?
