Autumn styling tips

In my last outfit post I showed you my go-to autumn look: leather shorts and a polo neck jumper. Today, I wanted to demonstrate how adding just one layer can transform that same look completely.

Formalwear is still bang on trend right now. And the shade of this pink satin tuxedo dress from Topshop lends itself perfectly to an autumnal palette.

Not only does it nod to this season’s shades; it’s the perfect capsule piece to provide both a day and evening look. When shopping in Birmingham, I wore it with black leather shorts and a black polo neck jumper. This look was finished with a pair of socks boots, a Gucci belt ( I picked this up from the airport and saved A LOT!) and a 90s inspired shoulder bag.

Transitioning into an evening look, I’d swap the boots for strappy sandals, remove the belt to show off a different silhouette and finish with a small black grab bag. If I fancied braving the cooler weather, the shorts and jumper would be off too!
