How to Style: Fur Stole | A/W Edition #2

So, i'm back again with another Autumnal How to Wear! I've found that through writing these style of posts, it's got my creative juices flowing and i'm far more enjoying the new season than before. This week was the first time i could see my own breath in the morning, which means that Winter is well on his way so these styles are are good for transitioning from Autumn to Winter, so have no fear!

After pairing my own tartan shirt with a pencil skirt for a recent event i thought i'd try it again but with something a little more daring. I love how the dark red check running through this lumberjack style shirt matches the sequins perfectly, it completely ties the outfit together. I think the length, and style, of the skirt totally transforms quite a casual, masculine style top into something a lot more girly and evening appropriate. I think it's great to mash your casual and smarter pieces together, sometimes, as it creates a completely new wardrobe. Try pairing things together that you would never normally consider, you may well surprise yourself.

I love how simple this outfit is. There is nothing better than jeans, a jumper and some chelsea boots to make you feel Wintery. Add a little fur and you're ready for a crisp Winter's morning! This style is all about accessorising, because you're keeping thing fairly simple with everything else, it's nice to be able to layer up your accessories, like rings, bracelets and brooches. I feel like brooches are underestimated, and have a lot of stigma attached to them, but something bold and beautiful like this can really add a lot to some simple knitwear.

I absolutely love this outfit and this, to me, is my perfect Autumnal style. I really love easy looks that are simple to do but look great on, so dresses and boots are perfect. Especially if you choose some beautiful glitter boots, like these from Rocket Dog! Quilted jackets are the perfect layer for this season because they're not really thick like a coat, but are perfect to keep the chills out. Adding a fur to something like this just makes an everyday outfit a little bit more special.
