The Only New Top You'll Need This Autumn feat. Katies



I love browsing the new season fashions, and Autumn is probably my favourite of all.  I love all the new colours and shapes, but of course, you can't buy everything!


It's important to prioritise what you you actually need in your closet.  I did a good sort through recently, using my tried and tested method of wardrobe auditing.  The conclusion that I came up with is that I have too many bottoms and not enough tops, which is actually an unusual problem to have.  Usually, women end up with too many tops and only a handful of bottoms to wear.

Anyway, this pale cream boho style top from Katies fills the hole in my closet nicely.  With its 3/4 length sleeves it is easy to layer under waistcoats when the weather gets cooler and the tie neck forms a flattering V when left open which is perfect for those of us with an ample chest.

I've styled it three ways to show you just how versatile it is.  I often shy away from paler colours near my face, but because the top it off white and not white, it's very flattering on my complexion.


LOOK 1

This is so simple, isn't it?  I'm wearing black bootleg jeans (I haven't worn this shape for so long and I was amazed at how flattering they were!  These ones from Katies are a great high rise with fabulous stretch - you're getting a sneak peek here as these aren't in store until next week - I'll give you a heads up when they hit.).

A half tuck keeps the look streamlined and open toe boots flatter the shape of the jeans.

LOOK 2

This is the kind of outfit I wear everyday - printed pants are my go to piece when I can't think of anything to wear.  Teamed with the off white top and Birkenstocks for comfort, this outfit will keep you looking stylish all day long.

I'd wear this outfit out for drinks with friends or maybe out for a meal.  I LOVE distressed denim and this is such a classic look to pair it with tan leather.  I almost went for tan sandals but wanted to show you that you don't need to have gazelle-like legs to be able to wear ankle boot and a skirt.  

An easy way to make sure the look works on you is to ensure the boots are low cut at the front which helps lengthen your leg rather than cutting them short.  Also, the skirt being just below the knee is a flattering length and stops the look veering into streetwalker territory.

  1. You look lovely. You've styled the top well. I fear a top like this on me would just make me look frumpy but I'm going to at least pop in and try it on. I also wouldn't mind the denim skirt.

  2. I've been LOVING printed pants recently. I've pretty much replaced all my pants with funky ones :)

  3. Gorgeous! I'm the standard too-many-tops-not-enough-bottoms chick. Actually, I probably have enough bottoms, but have too many in the 'nice' category instead of just rotating them in my everyday wardrobe. Must sort that out. Love them all, but the distressed denim and boots is my fave. #teamIBOT

  4. Beautiful top. I love to change my tops and keep the same pants /skirts to create my favourite style. Maybe even a black one like this .

  5. I still haven't embraced the printed pants trend - love it on others, just not on me LOL. I got a very similar top from Rockmans recently, it came free with my new jeans, so thanks for giving me some ideas on how to style it when the weather eventually cools down!
