Autumn is here and with the the new collections out, comes the opportunity to breathe some new life into your wardrobe.  You don’t have to go out and buy a whole load of new outfits. Cast your eyes over this selection of clever wardrobe transformers and breeze your way through the new season in style….

 

1. The Little Cropped Jacket

Not quite cold enough full on winter coat but this style of cropped jacket is just the ticket, incredibly versatile, stylish as well as practical.Wear it over all your summer tees and tops, dressed down during the day with skinny jeans or for a layered look over a long top skinnies and biker style boots. It works hard in the evening or for smarter occasions too, over a dress or some cut-off cigarette pants with some sassy heels or loafers.

We love this on trend version from Whistles with it’s faux leather piping and boucle style knit. £150

 

Or  how about a more edgy biker style , like this one from Mango, with it’s diaganol zip and cut off sleeves! £69.99

 

 

2. The Bright Knit

A simple bright coloured sweater is a brilliant staple and the catwalks were brimming with them in neon shades. Choose the right neckline to suit your figure and wear it with jeans or cut off trousers or with a great A line or pencil skirt with long boots.

Fine knit orange sweater, with buttons on the sleeve  – H&M £7.99

Top Tip

“Look after your knitwear and it will last you well! Always use a good knitwear hanger and brush it after every outing to avoid unsightly bobbles!”

 

3. A Fabulous Scarf

Scarves are every girl’s best friend and especially handy when the weather turns cooler. If you’re petite or very slim, go for a less bulky version. Brilliant for hiding a tummy if you have one and for elongating your frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clockwise:

Pippa print  scarf, Mint Velevt  £35.00 – a nod to the military trend in smudgy khaki and cream

Feather patterned organgey scarf from Dorophy Perkins £12.99 – great for an ‘autumn’ girl

Blue and Yellow silk scarf from Joules, £29.95 – chic and sophisticated, so many ways to wear it!

 

4. Sassy Flats

Loafers are a great choice if you need to look smart but want to remain comfortable.

Go for a great print like these ones from Pretty Ballerinas. Animal print is a classic and always adds style and glamour to any outfit in an instant!

 

Or you could be brave and try a studded slipper or toe capped style ballerina shoe , both big

trends at the moment, and guaranteed to give your outfit the wow factor!
