Autumn/Winter 2013 Essentials

TARTAN This season’s ultimate essential. Whether you rock it in a dress, a skirt, a pair of bold trousers and just add a dash with a scarf, tartan is literally everywhere this Autumn/Winter. Choose a print that suits your skin tone – you don’t always have to go for fiery reds so experiment with print and colours!

FEDORA Last year the bowler hat stole the headlines but this year the fedora is making an appearance. Practical and stylish, this seasons easy-to-wear hat will keep your head toasty in the cold too.

LEATHER High shine PVC is the one this year but I cannot bring myself to even contemplate wearing it (too many Cher connotations, maybe?). However, the trusty leather biker will never go out of fashion; throw one on over pretty much anything to complete an outfit, keep warm and look sweet.

SOCKS A tad vague perhaps but socks are one of my absolute fave winter essentials – especially this year as chunky cut out boots are key to the winter wardrobe. Wear frilly ones with boots or brogues for a gorgeous day time look and then add some glitz with glittery ones for an dressier look in the evening.

ORANGE NAILS It’s all about orange nails this season – lucky for us all shades are in so there is guaranteed to be a colour to suit your skin tone perfectly. Plus, it will brighten up those dark days a little.

DARK RED LIPS Every winter. Without. Fail. Be extra careful when choosing your shade though as dark shades are sometimes tricky to pull off.

FLUFFY JUMPERS Perfect with a tartan skirt, the 90s style super soft jumper is back. Cosy, warm, ridiculously cuddly and amazing with pretty much anything. Try a cropped one with short sleeves for a grungier, evening look.

BABY PINK Super girly and easy to wear. Embrace your inner girly girl with a delicate skirt and rock it up with a leather skirt.

TURTLE NECKS Another piece that is screaming 90s, the turtle neck comes in loads of shapes, styles and colours and most are cheap and cheerful. Plus, they go with pretty much anything and can be casual day wear or dressed up for drinks.

CHUNKY BOOTS An all year round favourite for me anyway, winter is the time to embrace the chunky boots. Go for a heel for an evening look and Dr Martens for a more casual day time look. Don’t be afraid to embrace you inner grunge and try a girly dress with them – and don’t forget your sparkly socks!
