Well hello to you my reader chums! The leaves have fallen, the chiller weather has set in and my favourite clothes are out, autumn is officially here. I say this all the time, but one of my favourite things about autumn is the fashion and makeup. Darker lips, over-sized jackets and ankle boots are back; every item that describes autumn fashion to me.
Here's my take on an autumn inspired OOTD and makeup look...
Denim jacket - Primark
Stripy top - Pull & Bear
Black jeans - Topshop's Joni jeans
Ankle boots - New Look
I've seen oversized denim jackets everywhere this season and had been wanting to get my hands on one for a while. Topshop are known for selling these pieces, however instead of the £60 price tag, I found a dupe in Primark for only £20. The difference between them is minimal; stylish, comfy and a piece that will get the most wear this autumn. I paired it with a stripy tee, high-waisted black jeans and Chelsea boots, for a casual yet quirky vibe.
The jacket is the featured piece of this outfit, which you can wear paired with jeans, skirts or even a dress for that over-size look. Its one of those items that are so versatile, you're able to look super casual or incredibly stylish; a trendy jacket every girl needs this autumn. I'm in love with it an cannot wait to style it with more outfits.
Typically in autumn, I take out my copper shadows and berry lipstick, however I wanted to do something a little bit different with this look. For the eyes, I focused on a champagne base, darkened the outer corners with a blend of browns/reds then ran a burnt orange, red shade under the eyes for a bit of definition. The base is my general everyday makeup with bronzed cheeks and a light highlight. I chose to go for a red lip as it added that pop of colour and complimented the stripes well.
