Beginning of autumn ... what I refer to as that awkward period; cold early morning, hot at midday before my hair gets tossed by the wind in the afternoon. Mother Nature’s PMS at its best! So let’s talk transition pieces.

With the hormonal temperatures, layering becomes your best friend. I don’t just mean coats over jumpers over thermals. Even a shirt under dungarees can be categorised as layering. In this case, I've styled my overalls (courtesy of Boohoo) with a studded plaid shirt where the red tone serves as the perfect background for the acid wash denim. Plaid is one of the most obsessive trends seen again and again on the recent autumn/winter 2013/14 runways (I’m looking at you Celine, Givenchy and especially Moschino).  Toned down by black buckle boots inspired by those iconic Balenciaga pairs and also a simple fold-over clutch (thank you OASAP), this outfit was on so many levels ... workman cool.

I’ve realised in summer, my style is all la-de-da floral crown romanticism but come winter... it’s utilitarian, militaristic and all sorts of masculinity.

I'd like your opinions. Will you be wearing plaid or dungarees ... or both?

  7. Aww you make overalls look cute! Definitely agree with you about style during different seasons - summer is all romantic while winter is more military.
