With a change of season in the air, this autumn is all about having fun with your fashion. We show you how to spice up your everyday staples with metallics, leather, and bold accessories. Thanks to Melbourne’s Uni Hill Factory Outlets, here’s a few insider tips to help you stay on-trend this season.
1. Leather it up
Leather remains a fashion favourite and is a sensible choice for the cooler months. Shorts, dresses, jackets and skirts are all on trend, so it’s a good idea to invest in a couple of leather pieces. A great versatile option, leather can work to relax an outfit or smarten up a casual look, just take inspiration from Kirsten Dunst and Nicky Hilton.
2. More metallics
Metallic colours are key this autumn. Brighten up your wardrobe with a hint of shimmer and shine – from sequins and prints, to shiny fabrics and motifs. Check out the range at Mossman to add a bit of sparkle to your day.
3. The boyfriend jean will be your best friend
While you shouldn’t disregard their skinny-leg counterparts, this season’s focus is on boyfriend jeans. Baggy and ripped in all the right places, team them with a pair of Chuck Taylors from Authentic Factory Outlets for a casual feel, or a cute pair of Keds for a softer style. Boyfriend jeans look great with a fitted jumper or turtleneck, or paired with a blazer, mixing casual with elegant just like Rachel Bilson is doing here.
4. Layering is key
With the cooler weather fast approaching, layering is a great way to keep warm and still look stylish. Retailers such as Cotton On have a great range of basics available in a number of cuts, colours and shapes to suit all tastes. Mix different colours and styles to avoid bulking up when layering.
5. Can’t get enough boots
Boots are the shoe of choice for the cooler months, and can add the finishing touch to an outfit. Look for details like studs and buckles to accessorise any outfit. Whether you prefer ankle boots, high boots, flat boots or a heeled option, Tony Bianco always have a great selection of the latest styles.
