Anyone that knows me will know that my wardrobe consists mainly of basics and classic pieces that I can wear all year round. I would not typically describe myself as someone who is "trend led" but like most other fashionistas out there I do like to experiment with new trends every season. The secret to how I do this is to pick trends that will fit seamlessly into my wardrobe and work with my already existing pieces. This ensures that I get the upmost wear out of each item and it also means that I don't have to break the bank each season.
For this post I thought that I'd share some of my favourite trends that are knocking about this Autumn/Winter as well as give you some tips on how you can style them to create super fun and chic looks for the colder months.
Animal print and checks have always been favourite prints of mine. They are prints that always seems to come back around and this season they have come back in a massive way. Whether it be clueless vibes, leopard, zebra or snake print; you're guaranteed to see someone in some sort of print outfit when you look on the gram, in your workplace or on the high-street. There is definitely no sign of this trend letting up anytime soon and of course I thought I'd take part in my own subtle way.
I am not quite brave enough to adorn animal or checks from head-to-toe so for me the easiest (and cheapest) way for me to inject these trends into my wardrobe is by investing in separates. I have bought a few tops and skirts in animal print and checked print over the last few weeks and I tend that I tend to style them with plain jeans and basics to not only keep the print as the star but also to make sure the print does not overwhelm my petite frame. For the outfit below I went for black jeans and sandals and injected some fun into the look with a leopard print body from Pretty Little Thing. For me this is just the right amount of animal print and having it as a separate also means that I can style it with a multitude of items. I can wear the top with a leather skirt and some tights or pair it with a chic white suit to give me that little bit of sass.For the checked print, I kept things simple in the above pictures with a simple basic white top and black boots and I love how it all came together. It wasn't quite clueless but the print and the lovely lace-up detail on the skirt kept things fun and cute without looking like a chess board.
What trends are you loving this Autumn/Winter and how do you wear them?
