Autumn/Winter necessities: keeping it cosy and casual

I personally feel like it can be so hard to style jumpers casually, yet still look on trend! It’s so easy to just throw a pair of trainers on, but after a while I start to feel a bit scruffy and repetitive. Not to mention, trainers aren’t always practical come December! However I feel like this outfit is cosy and casual  enough for everyday wear, yet still on trend thanks to the ripped jeans and embroidered boots.

The jumper and jeans are both Topshop, with the jumper costing £34 and the jeans £45.

When I first saw this jumper, I fell a little bit in love with it! I’m so happy camel has made a return this season, ’cause it’s just one of my favourite colours to wear during autumn/winter. It just really sets off all the autumnal tones at the moment. Although I feel that Topshop knitwear can be slightly overpriced, it can be sometimes worth paying that little bit extra for the quality of your knit. I personally have Topshop knitwear I’ve worn year after year, so this jumper will definitely be falling into that category.

I’ve worn Topshop ripped jeans for a few seasons now. In the past, I’ve stuck to the ‘Leigh’ range. Just because I felt like they had that little bit of extra stretch compared to their other ranges. However after loosing weight, I’ve finally braved the ‘Jamie’ collection this season. And in my opinion, this range is soooo much better! They still have a little bit of stretch, but are so much better quality, and a lot thicker for the winter! Price-wise there about £5 more, but definitely worth it!

I’m a big fan of ankle boots during autumn/winter every year. However this pair from River Island at £45  are actually practical. Unlike so many other boots I own! I’ve spoke about the embroidery trend before (click here to view), so if you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I’m a big fan! The boots look so good styled a plain black jumper and black jeans, just to make really stand out! The boots are quite versatile too, as I’ve styled them with a few skirts and jumper dressers so far.

This is an outfit I’ll definitely be layering up in the next couple of months. However the jumper is definitely thick enough on it’s own for the next couple of weeks! What do you think about the way I’ve styled the outfit? What are you loving about this season’s basics? Let me know in the comments!
