March is the beginning of Autumn/Fall in Australia so I wanted to do a post on some essential items that I think will help transition into the new season! =) This is my first official fashion post! As university has started, I plan to do some occasional OOTDs and I hope you all look forward to them. Just a quick note, I don’t always stick to traditional autumnal colours and I just wear whatever will keep me warm and comfortable for this season!

I am someone who turns to sweaters to keep warm but for convenience too. They are easy to throw on and if it gets a little warm you can just roll your sleeves up! There are also so many different materials to choose from so some don’t require layering at all. If one is a little on the thin side, I like to layer a long sleeved shirt underneath. A particular style that I am completely obsessed with right now is wearing a collared blouse underneath. I find thick sweaters really comfortable and are perfect for those lazy days where you don’t have the time or just aren’t bothered to dress up!

Right during the transition, the weather is still generally warm but may be windy at the same time so a standard long sleeved top will be perfect to wear on its own. A plain one may seem a bit boring to wear alone so I like to play around with layers and patterns. I really enjoy collars on my shirts, I find them to be so adorable but elegant and chic at the same time! =)

If I’m not wearing a sweater then I’ll be wearing a thinner plain long sleeved top with a thicker knit cardigan or jacket. In my opinion, like a statement fashion jewellery piece, a nicely fitted jacket can pull an entire look together and make it look more fancy. There are such a wide range of styles and materials to choose from. I personally enjoy oversized knit cardigans, they look so effortless but are so comfortable to wear! I think they’re perfect for casual occasions.

More often than not, I’m wearing skinny jeans or leggings. You can never go wrong with either during the colder months! They match absolutely everything. Because my tops are usually quite feminine, I like to keep my denim a bit more edgier with some distress and tears in them. I also find that darker washes look the best during this time of year.

For me, a classic black ankle boot is a must! I wear them religiously during the colder months because I know they are comfortable but will keep my feet dry in case it starts to rain! They also match and look great with absolutely anything. I wear them 99% of the time during the autumn and winter. When it comes to metals, I always prefer gold because I think it looks more chic with black leather!

Scarves are a great way to accessorise on chilly days while also providing sufficient warmth! I think they can be a way to add a pop of colour to an outfit if everything else is kept simple. Having a small variety of scarves to rotate around is a must in my opinion! =) My absolute favourites are chunky infinity scarves, I don’t personally gravitate towards scarves that are on the thin side.
I know that a lot of you guys are from the Northern hemisphere and are going into spring but I still hope you enjoyed my first official fashion post! ♡ Let me know what your essentials are and if you think I’m missing any important pieces hehe.
