I am loving Autumn so far: the pumpkin spice, the rain, the turtlenecks and ankle boots…what’s not to love? Being a September baby, Autumn has always been my favourite season, and everything about it makes me happy.
Fashion-wise, I like to bust out the warmer tones – the mustards, the hunter-greens, the ambers, and – hence the title of this post – caramel and burgundy!
Brown and red don’t go at all, but their warmer, fall-appropriate shades complement each other.
To make sure, I used black as the base colour and gold accents throughout. Then, the pop of caramel, and the burgundy clutch to add a berry-bright element.
What’s really great about this outfit is that it’s day-to-night transitional! So, you can go to work on Friday morning, with the shirt-and-jumpsuit combo, plus a tote. Come 6pm dinner-and-drinks, you swap the tote for the clutch, remove the shirt, and add a pair of statement earrings!
Which brings me to the jumpsuit: I bought this to wear at my graduation ceremony in July, and I’ve worn it pretty much everywhere ever since: during the summer with sandals, on the airplane, and out to an evening dinner!
It’s so multi-functional, and with the right accessories or even using it as a pair of dungarees and adding a shirt underneath, it makes the perfect closet must-have!
Plus, the layering aspect is great for Autumn and Winter when you need the extra warmth!
