Autumn weather, autumn mood

Autumn – this feeling when the sun took a step back, the leaves covered the ground and the trees show us how lovely it can be to let things go.

For me personally autumn is a little bit of a sad season, moreover now that we are at home in a lockdown (again). But I see it as a necessary transition period leading to the festive December.

But no matter how sad and cold the weather outside is, the nature colors revive – yellow, orange, saturated green, dark violet and red, brown, etc. And the autumn trends always follow those colors and so do I. I like violet, burgundy and all combinations in this palette. 

My outfit today is a cosy, casual one – a „fashion“ shirt with jeans, a sleeveless red jacket and matching sneakers.

Cute dress and casual plain boots

A pair of boots are year-round wardrobe staples both for warmer or cold months – from classic white boots to the over the knee ones. Such are the timeless combat boots – a season-less pair which work with any outfit – even with a nice dress.

I have always considered that a nice black dress matches in the best way with heels but depending on the occasion it can work great with boots too. As I am so much in love with my super comfortable MONKI black boots (that I featured in an earlier sports outfit post), this time I rounded up another style of outfit with a black Zara flounce, volan dress of course in a fashion way.

There’s nothing like a pair of chunky black boots to add some edge to a cute dress.

Sweater time trend

The classic autumn/winter trends are definitely the knit sweaters. But classic does not always mean boring. In the meantime there is a large choice of beautiful knit sweaters with lovely and eye-catching details like laces, holes and braids. The choice of colors is broad by itself, but I tend to prefer the light and pastel ones. 

You can combine the knit sweater with nearly anything in your outfit easily – casual with jeans, skirts or leather imitations – it will always fit well. 

My outfit today is a casual one made with a Bershka violett hoodie style sweater, a pair of Bershka balloon light blue jeans, a violett belly bag and mint colored sneakers matched with cool socks of the same color.

The boots season has arrived

At fall-winter time I love comfort in choosing the shoes but always combined with femininity when making the outfits. This pair of MONKI Boots are one of my must-haves for cold days and I am really in love with them. In any case a leather look jacket is a choice that fits to most of my outfits, and another must-have. As a black lover, today I made my look all in black – black short Zara top, leather look Calzedonia cycling shorts, Pull & Bear black leather look jacket, MONKI black boots and a little cute black H&M bag.

But, no matter the choice of color, let your light shine in a fashionway!

One sleeve shirt – yes or no?

Every season a new model of shirt becomes more popular than others – one of them right now is the one sleeve shirt. I have always thought that it’s extremely uncomfortable – you don’t really know for season it is made – one side being like for the summer, while the other like for the cold times. But I think it’s really suits well for the autumn.

With this shirt you get the feeling that it is still summer (I like that very much because don’t want it to go), but at the same time you have a long sleeve on, well suited for the present times. What can be better? I like it also because it’s eye-catching and it’s matchable with lots of things – jeans, skirts, etc. I matched it with cool balloon jeans, open shoes tied trendily to the jeans and a really comfortable belly bag. Belly bags are not only trendy but also very practical. Hope you like this outfit, matched in a fashionway.

Stay true to myself

I always try to stay true to myself and to my style – I love the sport-elegant style – being elegant while casual, without loosing on comfort. The outfit today is a fine example of that – cycling shorts with a stylish blazer. 

Not everyone likes, or is eager to wear cycling shorts in daily outfits – myself, when I discovered the trend last year, was also not so enthusiastic, but nowadays I enjoy it very much. As I often said here, I am a huge fan of cream colors, so it is no wonder that I chose to wear beige shorts. To keep it classy I matched a long white cream blazer and a black top. To complete the outfit I went for black block heeled shoes and a Louis Vuitton bag, in a fashionway.

Are pastels the new neutral colors?

Pastels are pale colors that are tender and do not stand out too much, but still bring colors to an outfit while acting neutral. Being so baby sweet and delicately tender, I would wear them all the time. 

I find the pale pink and pastel petrol to be a great combination. I matched a pale pink blazer with a short lace pastel petrol top and short denim cycling shorts. Finished the whole look with a black Furla bag and pink-black block heels, in a fashionway.

Something checkered – yes, of course!

Checkered pants or leggings – I’m going for both . They are just beautiful and almost everyone is wearing them because they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, they are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing, wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels; some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

I like wearing them on different occasions, but today I am going in a city street style and match my checkered Calzedonia leggings with a simple black shirt, accessories and once again one of my favorite teddy coats – the one in yellow.

For achieving a classic look with such kind of pants, grab a basic shirt or singlet out from the back of your wardrobe and pair it with them. White, grey, naxy, black and tan tops are also great options, matched in a fashion way.

Teddy coat trend

All over the streets, the teddy coat has been worn by various faces. It’s clear that this new outwear has taken over today’s street style and almost everyone likes it.

The teddy jacket trend revolves around the look of a cozy, faux fur coat that seems to resemble a teddy bear, hence the appropriate name. The trend that started back in 2016 is still around with its classic style while at the same time evolving into different colors, shapes and silhouettes.

After the fall of 2018, it was clear that the appeal of the teddy coat has tremendously increased. The coat also goes by other names such as faux fur, soft fur jacket, sherpas, teddy coat and any fuzzy descriptive phrases.

As the teddy coat comes with a lot of versatility, allowing for any person to incorporate their personal touch, influencers and celebrities also manage to style theirs in their own way in order to hop on the trend. 

All that said – will this trend last? I would say it will stay, for several reasons – it’s cosy, comfortable and warm – ideal for the cold months; at the same time it’s street style and fashionable; it keeps being promoted for already several years in a row, and last but far from least – it is fake leather, no animals harmed.

In the upcoming years, the teddy coat may become even more of a „classic staple“ just like the leather jacket in the past. When buying clothes I always consider if I would be able to wear them more than one season, but with this one I have no worries – I know, no matter the color or style, it will keep finding the way out of my wardrobe.

My outfit today is, of course, with a soft faux fur hooded coat in a yellow trendy color, matched with my always favourite, no matter the brand, skinny jeans from Only and a checkered dark blue shirt (again a trendy color) and black Michael Kors sock sneakers.

How to wear a rust colored sweater

Today I made my look with one of my favourite sweaters in rust color, because it’s very popular this season. This color is one of the trendiest colors in the fall/winter 2019. If such a sweater doesn’t work for you, you should be able to find something similar in that color, in a cut or fit that works better for you. Now, onto the outfit!

I love how this type of sweater looks against black faux leather leggings!

Faux leather leggings are back for the fall in new on-trend colors and prints and they 
continue to be a wardrobe essential. They manage to imitate the look and feel of real leather very well and are making life a lot easier being so comfortable and versatile. I like to wear leggings with tops that are longer – relaxed sweaters like this one are just perfect.

Meanwhile this sweater would go very well also with black or blue skinny jeans.

To make the outfit really pop, I also went for black accessories – a black Victoria Secrets bag and a Gucci belt. To finish I added my comfy Zara black block heels booties.

This look would of course also work with any of these trendy colors for the sweater – mustard, olive, mocha, grey, and a happy yellow. Try it in a fashion way!
