Another week into autumn, another layer added. This week’s Fashionista is well dressed for the weather whilst rocking some key fashion pieces. Her ensemble touches on girl meets boy androgyny, using the heritage theme and mixed patterns to do so. The "Teddy Boy" trend, a major look which has taken high street by storm, also features rather strongly here.
The herringbone tweed tailored shorts from H&M give her outfit that slight masculine feel, the fitted look is a winning contrast to her loose jumper. Striped shorts would also work — visit Topshop for inspiration. For a more girly glamour, why not embrace the heritage season and pair a tweed pencil skirt with a sheer blouse — ultra sexy and bang on trend. This Fashionista’s shorts look great with leather knee-high booties, practical and pretty. To emphasise the Teddy Boy look even further, you could pair your shorts with beautiful detailed brogues.
This new craving for printed checks and herringbone has emerged from the runways of L.A.M.B. and their memorable tartan trousers, to Topshop designs at London Fashion Week. Make sure you follow their lead, wearing chessboards on your legs this season!
Her mesh mustard top from Urban Outfitters is a lovely contrast to her shorts and this Fashionista is not afraid to mix texture with print. After all, confidence is key to pulling off an epic outfit. This cool colour ties in well with the overall heritage theme — the tweed, the leather boots and the high neck blouse. Dull and muted, yet oh so effective shades.
Beneath the mellow yellow layer, she wears a chic monochrome blouse with black collar and cuff edging. This Puritan look screams Teddy Boy mixed with Chanel with the statement Peter Pan collar, high buttoned neck and long cuffed sleeves. These '60s contrasting collars are a trend to be contended with, so it is worth spending some dollar and indulging in a collar or two! Even more feminine pieces are sporting this featured look, Boutique by Jaeger to name but one. This fun and flirty style dresses up the overall outfit and gives you no need to accessorise — it is already done for you!
Accessories to finish off; her bag breaks up the ongoing trend with another fine fashion and is a bold block colour sensation! The selection of satchel delights at Urban Outfitters is top notch; their colour blockers’ deserve to be buckled up and bought.
A casual clothing affair this week, tweed helps us transition into the autumn. A classic look, keeping us warm and of course looking good, whether hitting the shops, running to lectures or strolling through the countryside — trends which are well worth the investment!
