Autumn Staples

Autumn Staples

Autumn is finally upon us! Which means colder weather, warm hearty food and Halloween. Autumn and Winter are quite possibly my favourite times of year. Actually, they definitely are. I love everything about the colder seasons; I prefer cold weather as some of you may already know (see my post about being pale in summer for reasons why!), the food, Christmas and of course the clothes.

Which brings me to this post, my Autumn Staples! (You can find all of these items at NewLook!)

First staple for the season: Tartan!

I love tartan clothes and Autumn is the best time for them. They always remind of Clueless and their outfits are so chic!

Second staple: Corduroy.

So, corduroy, it’s the fabric we all wore in the 90’s it feels like and it’s made a come back! Particularly in skirts, which is actually great because it’s quite a warm fabric and looks great paired with thick or patterned tights!

On to staple three: Burgundy, Mustard and Plum.

These are colours that come back in fashion near enough every Autumn and winter, they’re just great colours for the season.

Number four is another lot of colours: Pastels.

Pastel colours typically remind me of Winter and Spring, but I think they can look great when paired with some of the warmer, darker colours they can look great for Autumn too.

My fifth Autumn staple is: Bold patterns.

Bold patterns tend to look good throughout the year, but they seem to be making a bigger impact than usual this season! Especially check patterns!

Autumn staple six is: All black everything with bright/bold accessories.

I love how much of a statement this is. All of the focus goes on your accessories which makes picking them out in the morning a lot of fun. My personal favourite combo at the moment for this style is a baggy roll neck jumper, high waisted skinny jeans, bright red boots, bright blue bag and a bright yellow necklace. This sort of outfit goes really well with any stand out shoes and accessories to be honest, the bolder the better!

My final Autumn staple is: Comfy Jumpers.

I won’t lie, if I could get away with wearing a comfy oversized jumper, scarf, leggings, chunky socks and boots everyday, I definitely would. I love that aesthetic over all others. Pretty much because I think it can look super cute and I’m a sucker for comfort.

So that’s my Autumn staples! What are you wearing this season? Let me know in the comments or tag me in your instas @theweightofmyworlds so I can see your lovely faces and clothes! Have a great weekend everyone! Love,

Summer Staples

Summer Staples

Hello everyone! Hope you’re outside enjoying the sunshine, after all, summer is finally here!!

So.. today I’ll be taking you through my style staples for this summer! A lot has changed for me since last summer, so my fashion has changed a lot too! And on that note, let’s dive in!

  1. Stripes.

Stripes were a staple for me during spring and now again for summer! The only difference between my stripes in summer is that we’re all about bright, bold colours that pop! You can find these at Newlook!

2. Crop tops.

I’ve always been self conscious about my stomach, and I never thought I would be confident enough to wear them! Oh how times are changing!! I love crop tops paired with high-waisted jeans, high-wasted shorts and midi skirts. I think anyone and everyone can rock the crop top trend regardless of size or shape, if you feel beautiful, everyone will see that! (partly because you are.. duh!) You can find these at Pretty Little Thing!

3. Sunglasses.

This one’s a no brainer, it’s summer, you’re gonna need some shades! I love how putting on a pair of sunglasses makes me feel, like a boss ass bitch. Put those sunnies on and enjoy the sun! You can find these at H&M!

4. Maxi dresses.

These are something that I struggle to find for myself because I’m only 5ft 2 inches tall! Which means it’s a mission to find a maxi dress that doesn’t drag along the floor! So here’s some dresses for ladies of all heights, shapes and sizes! Find these at Boohoo!

5. T-shirt dresses.

I love love love t-shirt dresses, they’re so comfy and can be dressed up and down! I like wearing these with tights on cold evenings if I’m off out with long necklaces and heeled ankle boots. These dresses are all from ASOS and most of them are available in all body types/sizes!

6. Denim Jackets.

I’ve always struggled with this trend as I’ve never really known how to wear denim jackets; but recently I’ve found that I love wearing my denim jacket with t-shirt dresses during the day or with jeans in a different tone with a cute top! These are all from Topshop and they have so many more styles online in loads of colours!

7. White trousers/jeans.

This one can be a scary one for some people to wear, for example; me. I’m always terrified I’m going to spill something on them or sit in something! But I’ve sort of come to terms with that fear and now I love wearing them on a bright sunny day! Pairing these with a bright or cropped top is always a winner! Go to RiverIsland to check out some more of these!

8. Bright Bags.

Bright bold bags are super cute for summer, whether it’s a big shoulder bag, crossbody or clutch, these will make any outfit fun and ready for summer. Above are some that I love! Who would’ve thought that Next would have such cute bags!!

9. High-waist trousers.

These look great nearly all year round, but for summer, tie waist trousers have been one of my go-tos. They look great paired with a cami top tucked in, some cute heels and a blazer! Perfect for a night out or wear them more casual with sandals instead of heels. Find these at Newlook!

10. Shorts.

Shorts are always a summer staple, regardless of the year. When it’s really hot you don’t want to be walking around with loads of fabrics on! So, that’s why shorts are perfect because if it is a little warm with a breeze, I love wearing shorts with a slightly oversized light jumper and cute trainers. It can take a while to find the right pair of shorts for you, but it will be worth the wait! You can get these from ASOS!

So that’s my summer staples for this year. Hope you enjoyed checking them out and maybe you found something on here that you’re going to add to your own summer staples! If you’re not sure about wearing something new, I’d totally recommend trying it out at least for a day, but more often than not, you’ll find that you look amazing!

What are your summer staples? Let me know in the comments so I can try them out!!

Have a great bank holiday everyone!! Love,
