Now that August is slowly coming to a close, and soon spooky September will be upon us, we should get a head start on the upcoming fashion of the season. It’s a great time of the year to pair style and warmth together without the need to curl yourself up in every scarf you can find. Below are a few recommendations on how to look fabulous for your size with practicality and Autumn inspired choices.
Practical Wear Doesn’t Have To Mean Ugly
Whether you’re plus size or not, finding a good coat can be tricky for all of us. Coats can be a statement if you want them to be, or just a piece of practical outerwear. Often when you’re looking for a good coat, either they’re not intricate enough in their design or not coloured the right way. These don’t have to be important stipulations, but you want to be able to feel pretty in your outdoor clothing.
Look for buckles and belts on coats, as they always make clothing both fashionable and functional. Alternatively, look for plain waisted or simply double breasted coats for a chic style perfect for anyone. Always remember that your body type never has to hold you back from wearing what you want, so go for the coat you want!
Layer Up Some Pumpkin Tones
Pumpkin spice and everything nice comes out in autumn. It’s a good way to get into the September mood with the idea of the cool and calm evident in what you’re wearing. A good place to start for building up a wardrobe is to scour online for designer gear such as the range of dresses from McElhinneys, with plenty of neutral and bold tones in dresses made to fit for everyone. Shopping online usually comes cheaper than in the shops and you’ll have the entire range at your disposal to pick from.
Having a dark brown coat on top of a pale jumper is both cosy and cute. This can also be reversed and include a darker coloured dress underneath with some stylish grey tights or a simple light biker jacket. That’s what’s great about the versatility of autumn’s neutral tones.
Remember The Accessories As Well!
Now that you’ve found an outfit perfect for the autumn weather that looks good amongst the orange leaves and hazy sky, what do you do with the rest of your look? Daily makeup always works. Whilst they may be less necessary, one good item for a heavy autumn feel is a wraparound knitted scarf to adorn your neck. Wear it in any colour you like, but grey is an old time favourite.
It’s a best bet to pop some boots on and stomp around in crunchy leaf collections outside. Boots can come in a variety of heights. A great colour for your boots is brown, but the standard variety of black works well too.
Don’t delay on an autumn wardrobe, it’s one of the best times of year to look adorable bundled up!
