Then it must be Autumn, and that means getting ready to look good as we loom towards party season.
Autumn isn’t all about big furry coats and getting your jumpers out of the vacuum packed bag for a pre-season wash. It’s one my favourite times of year for getting all my important (i.e. beauty) affairs in order.
If you’re wondering what you need to be doing in November so that your December work party season isn’t a disaster, here are a few bit of inspo from your’s truly.
Tip 1: You can run in Doc Martens
Here in the UK it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll get caught in rain more times than you want over the next few months. And that means many a walk to work with soggy shoes and cold feet for the rest of the morning. Luckily, the good old folk at Doc Martens have a new range of canvas based waterproof boots and shoes out that are cheaper than a normal pair (roughly £65 compared to £110 for traditional leather boots) and go much better when you’re wearing a midi skirt or skinny jeans and feel the need to jump in puddles.
Tip 2: Get party pic ready
The most important thing you need more than a pretty party number for the office night out is a big bright smile for every photo you’re going to be in. And there’s no better way of sorted that out than looking deal on laser teeth whitening from a nearby clinic. Many will have special offers on in the lead up to December at it is quite quiet before party season starts.
Tip 3: Get Your Clash On
Just because the days are grey it doesn’t mean you need to look it too. My top style tip for the reason is to get your colours clashing as your layer up. If most of your autumn/ winter wardrobe is nothing but dull colours, a really bright jumper or jacket will do the job.
Tip No.4: Get Your Pants on
Pants suit are going to be big this winter and there’s a good reason why: they look so freaking good and are a true confidence booster outfit if ever there was one. Make sure to get a suits that is all one tone (no mixing and matching from your existing wardrobe) and make sure to pair with either bright shoes or a bright clutch.
