Riding boots are a staple for this season and will last you all the way through both Autumn and Winter, suitable for all weathers. While the majority are expensive, they would be worthwhile investment due to their quality and practicality. They nail this look, some of the above also include zips which would give them a hint a biker glam which would match the ‘gothic trend’ also found on my blog. Two in one, and all that!

A quilted jacket adds sophisticated style to any outfit while keeping you toasty for the colder months. Worn with skinny jeans in a contrasting colour (burgundy and navy go well together this season) will result in a perfect equistrian look. Some other good colour combos include: navy with khaki or moss green (either are fashionable at the moment), burgundy and navy, khaki/moss with nude or pale pink, or brighter hues like the scarlett shown from John Lewis and perhaps electric blue, though this might lend itself more towards a Spring look.

A lighter and cooler alternative to a jacket is a sleek, yet casual gilet for breezy days. Number 2 ties in the metallic trend too (which hopefully I shall be featuring soon…;-)) giving it a unique edge. The other two are more classic but come in gorgeous rustic, Autumn hues. Unfortunately Primark does not have a shopping website,, meaning I can not display any photos, however they have various on trend gilets too, priced at around £14.

Don’t forget the accessories! This tan belt from Debenhams is £8.40 is the sale. Belts are to be either brown, green, nude or deep red this season and teamed jeans. This light brown one is spot on, the buckles resembling horse riding stirrups or such like and the nude bow adds a touch of femininity.

Paranormal Romance

This Autumn/Winter the fashion industry has decided to show it’s love for all things gothic, seemingly inspired by paranormal romance and vampire glamour. Recently, the world has been taken by storm by a fierce flurry of werewolves, vampires and such like – think ‘Twilight’! Just look at none other than Gucci’s latest designs (above).

Flowy lace is a must this season, preferably is a deep jewel tone like this violet skirt from Internacionale £10.99. Capable of being dressed up or down, the versatile medium length of this item lends itself to evenings or day wear. Also avaliable are several dresses from Internacionale similar to this is different colours.

Quiz clothing offers a wide range of tops that perfect the trend, some simple, casual and easy to wear and others more exquisite and formal but many for very affordable prices, for example all of the above are less than £10! Religious memorabillia such as crucifixes or rock-chick icons like skulls are usually a safe bet.

A leather jacket is an absolute style staple for Autumn – this one can be found at New Look for £35.99 though some cheaper alternatives may be availible. Pair with coloured skinny jeans for a sleek, refined look or wear with a flowy skirt for a more alluring appearance with a biker edge.

If you shop around a bit, you’ll find that all the high street stores have tuned into this trend, so if you havn’t already, it’s about time you did too! 😉
