Well its that time of year again, the days get darker sooner and the weather gets cooler. To be honest Autumn and Winter are my favourite months of the year, you get to experiment more with fashion in terms of layering and just overall I think the fashion is a lot better and more fabulous during the colder months, im talking faux fur, fluffy jumpers and leather people.


I have created a colour palette for those all black errrthang lovers, or just if you’re sick of wearing black these are the colours you should be reaching for, for the colder months.

1. Cobalt Blue 


Cobalt is a massive trend this winter, it pretty much is a universal colour that suits everybody click the links below to stock up on your cobalt goodies.

Now that the colour palette is down pat, lets get to the TRENDS When shopping this season keep your eye out for fluffy jumpers, fluffy jumpers are MAJOR this season pair it with a collared shirt underneath and some skinny jeans with a fadora hat and you have yourself one bangin outfit.

Contrasting sleeves – check out the navy palette for the crossroads contrasting sleeve jacket, this is an absolute staple in my wardrobe at the moment, contrasting sleeves is an amazing way to take your outfit from drab to fab, look for a leather sleeve for a more after five look.

Faux Fur – do I need to say more, If you are the conservative type then don’t go near this trend as it will scare you, but its such a great way to add glamour to your outfit, try it with a faux fur vest or go for the puffed sleeve look like the city chic jumpsuit  .

Hats – ditch the beenie this winter and go for a floppy hat or a fadora hat these are a fabulous accessory trending this winter for a more chic look.



The makeup trends is the main reason as to why I just love this season, Autumn & winter makeup trends are glowy skin with a smokey undereye ditch that perfect liner look and smoke the undereye out and pair it with a dark cherry lip to finish the look.
