#TeenBlogSeries - Week 6- Autumn Fashion Staples

Teen Bloggers Anouska Millar and Beth have decided to start a project called #TeenBlogSeries. Its aim is to bring together lots of the teens/young adults in the blogging community. For the next ten consecutive weeks, over 80 bloggers will be writing every Monday at 6:30pm about many different things, all beauty, lifestyle or fashion related. You can view everyones posts by going to the hashtag on twitter "TeenBlogSeries". If you would like to get involved email: anouskateenblogger@googlemail.com.

Its almost time to start stocking up the wood burner and living off hot chocolate again; Autumn is my favourite season, but especially for fashion. 

Today I'm going to show you a few of my Autumn fashion staples from my wardrobe!



This autumn I am determined to rock high- knee socks more often; I frequently see girls on Pinterest looking amazingly autumnal and cute in high- knee socks so I'm going to try pulling them off myself! I love mixing up gorgeous autumnal colours in an outfit- Here I've incorporated a traditional cream cable knit jumper with a burgundy cardigan, emerald green bag, black skirt and purple socks.

Velvet skirt- Topshop
Cardigan- Primark
High-knee socks- Primark
Floppy hat- Primark
Bag- Accessorize
Wedged boots- River Island


I always feel that its a bit easier to experiment with my vintage inspired style during autumn as you can dress up a plain black based look with a nod to a vintage era. Such as I've done here, I've added a classic leopard print belt to cinch in the waist and add some pattern to the outfit. Also my trusty floppy hat is great to add a vintage vibe to an outfit.

I think that patterns are a great staple for Autumn! I love this dress as its so flattering and brings an element of fun with the kitty print!
Dress- H&M
Hat- H&M
Boots- Topshop
Tights- M&S


And of course, when it comes to Autumn you can't forget a staple coat! I adore the pink colour of mine as it brings a beautiful pop of colour to every outfit.
Coat- Peacocks
Skirt- Topshop
Tights- New Look
Wedged boots- River Island

I also wanted to include my staple makeup look for autumn! You can't go wrong with glowing skin base, a subtle smoky eye and matte berry lips!
Lipstick- Kate Moss by Rimmel London in 107
Eyeliner- Maybelline Gel Liner
Blush- Rimmel London Liquid Blush in 004 Sunkissed  Cherry
Foundation- Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation in 200 Soft Beige


So that's it- Seasonal colours and textures, vintage spin, patterns and a good ol' coat... my favourite bits for Autumn! I hope you have a great start to this season and enjoy yourselves :)
