Outfit | In the Trenches.

Fedora // Primark
Trench // Primark
Roll neck knitwear // Asos
Faux-leather bemuda shorts // Forever 21
Heels // Linzi
Bag // Daniel Footwear

It was only a matter of time before Primark brought out the must-have trench coat, so if you haven't already nabbed yourself a bargain I'd visit your nearest store asap before its too late! I missed out on the H&M style first time around and I've mopped about it ever since whilst questioning if the last size 18 was cooly Olsen -oversized or just plain drowning me! Hence why that never became a purchase and I now finally own this similar beige number, and potentially even the black version too if I can't resist temptation. A trench is the ideal transitional cover up with its lightweight fabric and wind appropriate length, you're still able to wear summer dresses, skirts and shorts whilst remaining practical to and from your destination.
I however am already well into Autumn winter '14 trends so I can't resist faux-leather boy shorts and roll neck jumpers. But before you get hot and bothered just looking at me, don't fret, what you don't see is this Asos knit is sleeveless so I'm still able to work the hair tuck trend and not get too sweaty under those layers, genius!

Avoid twinning in a Twin set

Co-ord, twin set, two piece.. whatever you're calling it you were no doubt spotted wearing one at some point this summer, and if you wasn't what have you been waiting for?
Co-ordinates are the perfect hot weather essential with their minimal styling requirements, allowing for less outfit planning and more time out enjoying the sun! And as I proved in my recent Ibiza Challenge Style Diary they are a great transitional piece when travelling. In that post I featured a beautiful native print co-ord from Ark that really has that ethnic vibe thats been trending this summer; teamed with bindi and you're festival ready in an instant! With so many vivid prints to choose from your outfit really can be that simple and still give you major style points. The only trouble with twinsets can be exactly that, you may be caught twinning with someone else, and I'm talking head-to-toe outfits at a festival with so many trend-concious girls shopping at the same places (you know where I mean). So I went back to Ark and edited my top picks of their many unique co-ords available to give you a little more variety amongst the crowd.

Boots // Asos

Jeans and a jacket wasn't something I thought I'd be wearing come August, but with the UK weather taking a sudden turn for the worst its back to my staple black ripped knee skinnys. I'm not particularly complaining though as I've been dreaming up autumn outfits for weeks now and it means my new Asos pointed ankle boots get an earlier outing than I'd anticipated! Infact, whens the snow kicking in so I can whip out the faux fur?!...

Monday Must Have | White ripped Jeans

I lived in black ripped jeans last autumn/winter (and still do) but this year its no surprise white is the colour to distress! After the all-white outfits that have been our new go-to head to toe look, black may be our usual for the colder months but its time to lighten up our staples and I'm starting with my denim.

Plenty to choose from:
