How to Find your Seasonal Style

As autumn takes a hold, I always feel a little sad; especially to be packing my summer dresses away for another year. My seasonal style has always taken on a much ‘heavier’ feel through the colder months.

And whilst it’s nice to wrap up and get cosy — in chunky knits and warm woollens — there’s a little bit of me that always yearns for the pattern and colour of spring and summer.

I’ve never been a ‘black is the new black’ kinda gal.


My wardrobe is a riot of colour.

Colour and stripes (embarrassingly, I seem to have one of the biggest collections of striped tops of anyone else I know).

Embrace Colour

One of my girlfriends and I had our ‘colours done’ a few years ago with Colour Me Beautiful and it was honestly such a worthwhile experience. Well worth the money.

Now, instead of shying away from colour — as I don’t know what will suit me — thanks to a sweet little wallet full of colourful fabric swatches, I’m secure in the knowledge that there’s a whole raft of lovely shades that I can wear without looking  too washed out.

I’m apparently ‘deep autumn’.

Season Style — An All year Round Wardrobe

Anyway. I’ve had a little bit of an epiphany over the weekend. I’m digging in my heels and have decided that I will not be dictated to by the seasons.

Whilst I will — naturally — be wearing boots instead of flip-flops, I am going to keep pulling out my favourite summer frocks.

This year, they won’t be banished to a box under the bed or the back of the wardrobe. This year I shall be wearing my favourite summer dresses with chunky tights, boots and cardis or jumpers.

Pattern reigns.

And *hopefully* this new inventive on seasonal style will make the winter a little less grey too ;)
