Ignoring the fact that I’m wearing an orange top/brown bottoms combo for the third time in as many weeks(!), let’s talk accessories.
I don’t think you can underestimate the power of accessories. For me, they make or break an outfit. They make basic outfits something special.
Here I’m wearing a bold blazer (orange of course, what – would you expect anything else from me these days?!), relaxed brown cotton trousers and an admittedly-it’s-pretty-cool Duran Duran Rio album cover t-shirt. All great in their own right, better together.
But here’s the thing… I think the star(s) of the show are actually the accessories, the brights that pull it all together. Red slingback heels, a red headband, a deep red belt and a deep red cross body bag.
And just for good measure: lots of gold jewellery and a pair of fabulously oversized sunglasses (mostly for style reasons, they only stop you squinting on a cloudy day. I just love them).

What I’m saying is Don’t be afraid to pile on the accessories. They can make the dullest outfits come alive. I have the biggest selection of belts, scarves, sunglasses, bags, hats and headbands (not forgetting jewellery) in All The Colours and All The Patterns. They rarely go out of style (not for a long time, anyway).
This outfit was thrown together at the last minute (honestly!), but as it’s the orange top/brown bottoms combo I already mentioned I guess I’m still wearing a uniform-come-outfit-formula without realising it (autumn’s having an effect on me no doubt). Despite my protestations at it every year, autumn still comes at me in all its cold weather/falling leaves/rainy dark days abomination.
But to give it its due, it does produce some rather wonderful colour palettes that I can’t help but fall in love with. I just want the 9pm sunset times back, is that too much to ask…?!
Are you wearing outfit combos on repeat without realising like me? And are there any other autumn resistors out there?? Comment below…
