Autumn Fashion to Fall For



Yesterday was the first day of Autumn, time to pack away the shorts, sunnies and flip flops, booo!

But boo no more, its also a great time for kicking leaves, cozying up on the sofa and shopping for the Autumn wardrobe!
I am happy to present a wonderful guest post from Sarah, the owner of Life In A Break Down who certainly knows her Autumn/fall fashions!!
One of the best things about a change in season means a change in wardrobe and who doesn’t need to add at least one new outfit to their collection. A favourite plus size clothing haunts has to be Taking Shape; this wonderful store looks to cater for the larger lady, no matter what their tastes as they offer everything from bight, bold and fun to more subtle prints, allowing you to show off exactly who you want to be.
To bring some colour to an otherwise dull time of year, why not look at something like the vibrant Clay Pot Tunic, with its yellows and oranges it picks up on the changing colours of the leaves and while the splashes of purple and black make for a unique affect. Of course what’s not to be missed about this piece is the crumpled look, which comes with a ‘put that iron away advice’ – perfect. Mix it with something like the slim fit Kyoto Trouser in black, which offers a tailored, slim fit look and make sure you have a nice cardigan to hand and you are ready for a girl’s lunch out.
For a night out why not check out the wonderful Carley Dress, once again it takes it’s colours from the hues of this time of year, with flecks of burnt umber, as well as oranges and reds, showing through in this floral pattern. Team it with, some statement jewellery – try picking out your favourite colours from the dress with it, to make them shine through and these comfortable wedges to really help you dance the night away.

However don’t just wear your main piece in the same way each time – why not play around with it, as the weather gets colder don’t pack away your short sleeve tunics, try adding a long sleeve fitted plain t-shirt underneath. Love dresses, but aren’t so fond of your legs, then grab yourself a pair of leggings or slim fitted trousers and pop them underneath.
One of the beautiful things about fashion is you never have to stop playing and just remember if you love it and feel comfortable, well why not rock it.
What are you looking forward to wearing this Autumn?
