After my time at London Fashion Week and The Look Show, I came home with a notebook full of inspiration for my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. All this week I’ll be creating looks based on the AW11 trends, using pieces from my wardrobe and a few key purchases.
Block colours were popular with stylish sisters all summer long, and the trend looks set to continue through the cooler months. For autumn, cyan blue, hot pink and neon orange have been replaced by mustard yellow, grass green and rich burgundy. Sounds good enough to eat!
When I spotted the gorgeous Laura from Wearing it Today in this outfit, I knew I wanted, nay – needed a bright chunky knit. Both our jumpers are from Zara and I totally copied that ‘pushed up sleeves’ thing she works so well. To build my colour block, I wore a yellow Peter Pan collar blouse and my burgundy skinnies, finished off with a touch of shoe porn courtesy of Viv.
PS – I whipped the jumper off after these photos as it’s swelteringly hot outside. Autumn: you’re doing it wrong.
