There's no doubt about it, Autumn is a-coming and I'm planning on being 100% prepared for it this year, because there have been far too many times when I've bought "winter appropriate" clothes that are actually only winter appropriate if you're spending Christmas in Australia.
So without further ado, let me introduce to you: STYLE ME, SEPTEMBER.
I suppose you can call it The September Issue for my blog - I'm going to be sharing all of my favourite AW/14 fashion and beauty looks so that you're just as prepared as I am. And... the feature will run for the entire month!
First up, let's take a look at how the designers did things:
Burberry have captured everything I am dreaming of and popped it nicely into one collection. When you're over the girl-crushing on Suki and Cara, just LOOK at those amazing patterns and shapes. If I could afford to own all of this, I would, but alas, I will just have to look for high street alternatives!
I'm obsessing over the belted waists and tucked-in scarves, plus those colour combinations are just to die for. 10/10 for you, Burberry!
We all know this gal loves Topshop, but I'll admit that I've never been hugely fussed about Topshop Unique. That is, until their AW14 show.
Let's all just sit and weep over these beautiful colours for a sec. I'm SO happy that yellows/burnt oranges are a thing for autumn and winter, because they're one of my favourite colours to wear. Typically associated with summer, and, y'know, the sunshine, but there's nothing wrong with bringing a bit of brightness into what will probably be a really really dull British winter...
Known for the wildest creations, I'm always excited to see what Peter Pilotto pulls out of the bag - even if I wouldn't wear them, I can always appreciate their designs from an art aspect. This season really didn't disappoint, and it showcased some of my favourite (albeit pretty wild) colour combinations and shapes that I've seen on the catwalk.
Burgundy's mixed with sea blues, bold geommetric shapes, and pastels contrasted with harsh cuts. Sounds pretty good to me!
*Style Me, September is a fashion feature running throughout September showcasing both designer and high street fashion and beauty looks. Stay tuned to catch a glimpse of my must-have high street pieces and come along with me as I shop for my Autumn and Winter wardrobe! For the grand finale, I will be styling my very own AW14 lookbook with a collection of the high street pieces I collect along the way...
