Let’s talk about: Autumn
Like the fashionista I am, I scroll through all the fashion websites to spot the latest trends for autumn. Pictures of beautiful thin and tall (!) models parading along with their short skirts and overknee boots. Well, it doesn’t work like that here in the Netherlands; here the wind howls and the mercury falls faster than you can blink, so unfortunately those trends don’t work for us.
Which means we have to use our creativity! Because we only want one thing, and that is to go out dressed in warm, attractive and comfortable clothes. But what always strikes me when I look around during the autumn is that we almost all wrap ourselves in sombre clothing – for many of us, dark skinny jeans worn with sneakers or a cool pair of boots are the outfit of choice. Fortunately, I have managed to find a number of items that will make you stand out from the crowd.
Oh and let me just emphasise that the woollen oversized sweater has not disappeared and I think every wardrobe benefits from having one. In light grey, ochre yellow, dark green or beige, with a wide neck or a collar, for plenty of bang for your buck. Combined with a pretty hat and a long coat, all eyes will be focused on you in no time (a little free tip)!
