AUTUMN TREND ALERT: Layering & Colour!

First of all...
Hello everyone! I'm sure most of you are already aware that the reason I've been MIA for the past 2 weeks is because I was on holiday with my family! Yes the place we stayed in came fully equipped with wifi however it was much harder than I anticipated to find the time to write posts and publish them without being glued to my laptop for 5 hours straight.
Although I am completely and utterly head over heels in love with blogging and spending copious amounts of time on my laptop, it can get a little much sometimes, especially when there is a blazing sun waiting to be sunbathed in... So I hope you don't mind too much and hopefully my blog schedule will be returning to normal from now on. 

This season has seen florals in full bloom, crisp whites and even the return of the co-ord. Even though I hate to admit it, all good things must come to an end... Of course that doesn't mean you have to hang up your chic and minimal white shirt&shorts duo just yet, but by the time August is over, your legs might just be a little too exposed and inevitably chilly to bare the cold that's just around the corner. Summer is undoubtedly my favourite season in terms of the fact I feel you can be more adventurous and creative with your style and the technique in which you choose to team items together, but we get what we're given, and unfortunately, no one has invented something to prolong the summer months yet. This therefore means we're going to have deal with the fact that woolly jumpers, flocculent coats and winter boots (my idea of heaven...) will be at the full front of our closets for what I expect will be another bitterly-cold winter.

Trends I expect to see:

Layering // 

I think layering is something everyone does subconsciously and out of necessity. I mean I don't even know if you can call it a trend because without it you'd probably end up with a case of pneumonia and off work for a few weeks. In all seriousness however, there is a silver lining - There are endless methods to layering and you really can turn something that some see as an obligation into a work of creativity and fun! One of my favourite ways to layer is by mixing textures, this way an outfit can instantly go from being somewhat boring and one dimensional to interesting and original. A contrast in materials is always a wonderful way to characterise a simple outfit and turn it into something remarkable! Lastly, another way I love to layer is by wearing a slouchy sweater, maybe even off the shoulder with a structured coat to juxtaposed the contrast in design to bring together the outfit.

Colour //
Last year we saw glorious amounts of pastel coloured coats all the way to jewel tones and colour blocking. This again is another trend I pray will return as I just love it when I see bright colours even in the middle of winter. Who says you can't wear colour just because it's cold? (...Coming from the girl who wears relentless amounts of black all year round...). One of my favourite colours, especially in winter is burnt orange, I think it's a wonderful autumnal hue that is surprisingly easy to style. Its not too far from dark and vampy colours but also just an arms length from vibrant yellows and others colours of similarity. It's fair to say that this is something I can't wait to see unfold within the next few months!
