Anyway, with the colder months fast approaching it means you're going to have to dust off your cardigans and dig out your jumpers before the chill well and truly arrives! I have to admit, I love autumn/winter - there are fewer things better for me than coming home from cold winters day, peeling off all of your layers, lighting a cozy candle, making a hot chocolate (and yes, I'll have the cream & marshmellows too, ahem!) and snuggling under a blankie. Tell me that doesn't sound heavenly?
For the days that you can't remain in your pajamas *siiigh* I have concocted a little post to give you some maroon-hued inspiration for outfits during the autumn... Or fall as the American's say!
Paloma Faith getting it right!
Tartan is a MUST for when it gets chilly!

And this is a little section dedicated to Queen Of Everything Dita Von Teese as I feel she does Autumn Winter so well...
Phewww... That's a lot of Dita! But there is no such thing are too much Ms. Teese, is there?
Here are a few things that I think are essential for keeping your vintage flair during the colder months because there's nothing worse than just chucking a coat over you pretty outfit and ruining it - instead incorporate practicality whilst still looking like a vixen!
Autumn/Winter Style Essentials:
A few pairs of good quality thick tights
Lots of tweed and tartan - circle skirts, pencil skirts, coats, blazers, dresses
Some long sleeve fitted shirts
Lots of cardigans
Faux fur collars
Below the knee coat
Tightly fitted knit sweaters - polo, boat, scoop necks
Heavy circle skirts
A vintage cape
Hats - beret, pillbox, fedora
Lace up boots
A good pair of jeans (Freddies, Lady K Loves)
A scarf - tartan, leopard, black, red, basically any colour you like! Match it to your outfit!
I hope you enjoyed reading. Let me know your autumn winter picks for this year down below in the comments!
