As the cold weather draws in, dark colours, chunky knits and chic boots quickly become our wardrobe staples. It’s time to ditch the pastels and indulge in the warm autumnal palette.
Vamp it up
The best thing about Autumn beauty is being able to pull off a daring, dark lip. Superdrug deliver the Revolution Retro Luxe Kits in matte and metallic which are perfect for finishing off any outfit.
Shade ‘Royal’ is an intense berry colour, great to add warmth to any complexion. The Matte Luxe Kits contain a matte liquid lipstick and matching lip liner and at £6 a kit, they are a must have.
Add an edgy jacket
These gorgeous suedette biker jackets in New Look are the height of fashion and add the perfect pop of colour to an outfit. The different shades make these a flawless addition to a casual daytime look and add a chic edge for those chilly evenings.
At £39.99 each, these are a style investment that won’t break the bank. New Look also offers a 10% student discount making them a sure-fire bargain.
Top it off
This Autumn staple is bang on trend, it adds the last touch to an outfit and balances out your look. Create a stylish ensemble with a ripped skinny jean, bold ankle boot, thick knit and chunky scarf.
H&M has these bargain hats in black and beige, at £19.99 they’re a steal.
The perfect pairing
Maroon is a key autumn hue and corduroy is a staple texture for your fall wardrobe, so mix the two together for the perfect statement look. This gorgeous outfit is from Miss Selfridge, the cream high neck top compliments the bold colour of the skirt. Team with a pair of fishnet or grey woolen tights to fend off the chilly weather.
The skirt is a bargain at £28 and the versatile top costs £25.
It’s time to put the peep toes and sandals away, boots are the way to go. River Island has a stunning range of shoes that are bound to make a statement.
Ankle boots are bang on trend this Autumn and with a bright colour or sparkly heel, these boots will compliment any outfit and certainly pack a punch.
At £42 the red ones are my boot of choice and with the chunky heel, they deliver both style and comfort.
Save your skin
The cold weather can be quite harsh on our bodies. The last thing you want with party season on the horizon is dry, cracked skin.
To make sure your body is Autumn ready and moisturised during the cold months, Body Shop has launched a themed, special edition Vanilla Pumpkin body cream – It smells incredible!
