The end of an amazing summer is officially here! I already started to look for some pieces to fill up my closet, in order to get through the upcoming autumn and winter in an efficient, yet trendy way.
Autumn is the season in which I find getting dressed in the morning the most difficult. I mostly tend to reach for a pair of jeans and a basic white Zara t-shirt.
Recently I’ve bought five of them in one go, because they’re only five euros and, with a colored bralette underneath, the V-neck gives every basic outfit a little bit more elegance. it Also matches literally every kind of pant or skirt that I own.
This year, I’m taking measures to beat my lack of inspiration and energy in the morning. I am going to pick up a few pieces that can be worn and combined in a wide range of situations, while still matching today’s trends.
I chose my two favourite trends for autumn/winter ’18-’19 and combined them in an outfit that matches your casual day of work or school perfectly!
First of all, the pantsuit! This is something that is wearable to a party with a pair of heels and a fancy blouse or top underneath it, as well as on a casual lazy day with a pair of chunky sneakers and a t-shirt with a simple print or text. This season, ribbed velvet is hot! For example, this dusty pink, ribbed velvet suit from Mango. On a casual day, I would pair it with this long-sleeved stripy t-shirt form H&M and some chunky white, I-don’t-care-you-don’t-like-my-sneakers-sneakers from Bronx.
Next up is the animal print trend. At first, I was really scared to participate in this trend. But recently, I bought my first leopard-item: a long-sleeved blouse with a yellow neon stripe on the sleeves. I must admit that it’s still hanging in my closet with the tag on it. However, already having some combinations in mind, I’m making progress, aren’t I?
The leopard print on itself is already enough of an eye catcher, so I would keep the rest of the outfit rather simple. A black pair of skinny jeans –Mile High, Levis-, some solid black boots that are suitable to conquer a little rain, for example a pair of Dr. Martens, and to complete the comfy, yet elegant look, a long trench coat with a belt from H&M.
