AUTUMN STAPLE


I'm back! I know it's been a few months since I last wrote a blog post, and I don't really have any great excuse for it to be honest. One thing though, was that I felt completely un-inspired by Summer style this year, which meant it was hard to find the motivation to put together fashion content over the Summer months because I just didn't really love any outfits. I also started a new job in August which was very exciting, but it did take up a lot of time at first getting settled in etc. Then come September I went on an amazing holiday with 13 of my uni friends which was total relaxation and sooo much fun.

It's now October (which I can't actually believe is already here) and we're fully getting into Autumn/Winter which is my absolute favourite season for fashion. I feel more inspired than ever with style at the moment and I love it when the season changes and we can start to layer up again and get back into coats and boots - my faves. But today I wanted to share with you my current Autumn staple which is 'the jumper dress' and reasons why I think I'm going to have so many in my wardrobe this year.



1) Effortless.
When it starts getting colder (especially in the UK), you have to start thinking about layering up. Sometimes you just can't be bothered to wear lots of different items of clothing, so a jumper dress is the perfect option. It's one item that you can just throw on and you're basically good to go. I usually wear mine with a t-shirt underneath to keep me warmer, and my over the knee boots to keep my legs warm. It's an instant outfit and is so comfortable and cosy all at the same time. 


2) Warmth.
If you're like me and love wearing dresses, but you also really feel the cold, then this is the perfect solution. Jumper dresses are super cosy - especially the one I'm wearing here because it's a really thick knit. It keeps me so warm but still gives me that feminine feeling of wearing a dress. It's a way to add a bit more of a flattering feel to your knitwear collection by keeping those legs out! I don't know why, but if my top half is warm then I don't really feel the cold as much on my legs.


3) Layering.
A jumper dress is such a great layering piece. There are lots of different styles on the highstreet at the moment and they are so versatile. I would layer this one I'm wearing with a faux fur gilet over the top or a long duster jacket as the roll neck detail would still show at the top. If I was wearing a thinner round neck jumper dress, I would maybe put another thin roll neck underneath to add a bit of contrast. You can even add a belt with them to cinch it in at the waist if you prefer them more fitted.


It's definitely an item that I will be wearing so much this season and I'm already on the hunt for some more! 
Let me know what you're current favourite Autumn piece is!

What I'm wearing:
Jumper dress: H&M
Boots: Zara
Bag: Oasis

Love Em.
