I love autumn because it means you are able to update your winter wardrobe, and not feel guilty about it because the cold and rain lasts longer than the hot summer. This Autumn/Winter I have invested in lots of new jackets and thick skirts.
For the third year in a row, tartan and checks are a must have pattern! In this outfit I am wearing my new Matalan skirt; it was a great bargain at only £14. As this skirt is monochrome, it means you can wear different colours with it. However it is important not to clash checks with lots of patterns; for an affective look, keep it simple.
A new look that I adore this A/W14 is a sleeveless blazers. The blazer allows you to create an affective look with layers, while not over heating; it is a genius invention. The only problem is they are quite expensive, except for prettylittlething.com which is now selling decently priced ones. However, I wanted to save even more money by creating my very own. I took one of my old blazers that just collects dust in my wardrobe, and I cut of the sleeves.
Hope you like this look and that I may have helped you save some money. J
