The beginning of Autumn is so HARD to dress for! It's either too cold to go without a jacket, or its too warm to wear a chunky knit or coat! Not to mention shoes! Boots or pumps? Socks or no socks? I end up leaving the house wearing a thick(ish) quilted jacket and wearing summer pumps with no socks, which somehow isn't proportionally right.
However, in the light of the autumnal months, after hunting through shops and internet sites, I have put together an outfit to wear around town or to work which will keep you warm but be light enough to wear.
This French Connection Coat from ASOS, is perfect for this seasons trend of contrasting fabrics and is wearable for both formal and casual attire. For a more formal approach, I paired it with some fitted black trousers and a cream blouse. To add an edge to the outfit, I chose to team the items with suede flatforms and a collar chain. Finally, to top the outfit off, I would wear it with Topshop's Geometric print Satchel for an addition of pattern.
Beauty wise, I thought the make-up could be fairly natural as there are quite a few dark pieces in the outfit. Although, blue nail varnish adds a bit of colour and will combine all the pieces together.
