Welcome back! It’s so nice to have you if this is your first time on here.
Autumn or Fall (as the Americans would call it) is a favorite season. Asides the fact the
floors are lined with golden leaves, it is actually the next time for photography. Due to its
temperature, the none ‘sunny’ days have a way of setting everyone’s mood really down and
gloomy. The season following this is winter so the streets are laced with people walking so
fast mostly layered and covered up in black jackets.
The 5 looks below should inspire a more stylish and fun closet for yourself. I hope to do these edits seasonally henceforth. #mgautumnedit2019. Click for video here.
1. Tonal: – this involves your wearing similar shades of a color. For instance, play
around with stone, oat, cream, blush, ivory and other shades of white.
2. Cape: – this involves some degree of layering. An ideal cape knit this season should
have a thick fabric. If your cape doesn’t have a turtle neck like the one below, ensure the
top worn underneath has one. I prefer this look to be work with fitted trousers to contrast
the wide silhouette the upper body would have. Feel free to layer as much as possible
depending of the texture of your cape. By the way, some capes come in form of a large scarf.
3. Leather: – this goes without saying as most of your footwear this season is leather.
Try a leather jacket over your outfit. If it’s a light leather like the one below, you may need
to wear a huge scarf depending on the day’s temperature. If you decide to wear footwear
that doesn’t go above your ankle, wear a socks with it. This makes a huge difference. Some
really stylish leather jackets have fleece underneath, that’s perfect. You can also inculcate
leather in your bottoms: trousers, joggings, skirts are great ways to wear leather.
4. Puffer: – Asides being an outer wear, a puffer jacket could literally serve as your top.
See photo below. You can also stay away from dark colors and add some fun to the streets
in a colourful puffer. Trust me this adds some happy to those you come in contact with.
5. Textures: – Mixing textures is such a fun way to wear your clothes. In Autumn 🍂, I
love me some tweed. On its own, tweed looks expensive and chic and it’s so thick you mostly
would not need a jacket while wearing it. In the look below, there is a layer of regular
cotton shirt underneath the tweed cord.
I hope you have been able to draw inspiration from these looks. Have fun while exploring.
Watch video for these looks here. Lets catch up on instagram.
