Seven Days Of Fall Fashion - Autumn Look Book '14

It's hot chocolate and a movie season, but not quite chilly enough to warrant popping on a pair of tights. With March comes autumn, and with autumn comes cosy and chic fall fashion!

Think luxurious textures and mixed fabrics, bold accessories and fun new prints. And for today's post, I've styled a week's worth of looks for seven different occasions.

Get ready to fall in love with fall fashion!

Monday - Dressed Up Desk Job

Cute outfit = Monday-itis be gone! This outfit is comfortable and casual, yet still office appropriate. I'm loving the autumn-themed coloured piping on the shirt (I'm a sucker for a pop of colour!) and I think it's rad that this shirt is a little different from your typical white work blouse. 

The high-waisted shorts give the outfit some structure and a punch of prints, plus they still work for a corporate environment thanks to the thicker suit-like fabric and the clean cut. Finish off with a pair of ankle boots for some height and add a man-style blazer for colder days.

Tuesday - Tea Time

In autumn you can still get away with wearing your summer dresses on the warmer days (and some printed stockings for cooler ones!), so don't put them in the back of your wardrobe just yet. This super cute shift dress is great for those mid-twenties days and I adore the little t-shirt sleeves and the simple, yet very effective, orange cross-cross print. 

Complete the tea party look with a feminine straw hat (have to be sun smart!), a statement necklace (I went with teal and gold to set off the orange in the dress), and a pair of heeled sandals.

Wednesday - Working Girl

Is anyone here doing work experience or an internship? This outfit is a great pick for a girl learning her way around a new profession. It's comfortable, classic and is appropriate for most career fields. The dress has a simple fit and flare cut and the polka dot pattern gives the outfit a simple hit of prints without overwhelming the look. 

The cropped red knit is a great layering piece (it's always cold thanks to office air conditioners!) and the chunky ankle boots are perfect because they're comfy enough to run from errand to errand in. Add a chain necklace and in my case a pair of specs since I need them. Lucky for me, Sneaking Duck are helping glasses become more fashionable! Plus, they really add to the hardworking intern look, don't they?

Thursday - Day Trippin'

If you're lucky/old enough to have the freedom to drive, this outfit is super suited to a road trip. It's loose, flowing and uber comfortable, yet still stylish (and will look gorgeous in all of the happy snaps you take along the way!). I've kept the look pretty simple by adding no accessories; that skirt has enough details for the whole outfit!

And I am absolutely in love with that skirt; even though it's a maxi, the sheer fabric still shows off your figure. And that lace detailing! In. Love. For colder trips, pack a cropped jumper to pop on over the top, or a faux fur vest, then add a felt hat.

Friday - TGIF Drinks

Have plans this Friday night? Be it a date or drinks with some mates, this outfit is so simple to put together, but the mix of fabrics make the look super dressy with minimal effort. The loose red cami is soft and sexy, while the skinny-leg high waisted leather pants give off a bit of a bad girl vibe. Just the right combination for a Friday night out.

Just add a pair of kick-ass boots, a simple necklace and a skinny belt in a contrasting colour or print, and you'll be ready to dance the night away and turn a few heads while you're there!

Saturday - Girls Night Out

If you're going to let loose with your girlfriends, then why do the same with your wardrobe too? Go for bold, colourful prints like this gorgeous cap sleeve dress. Top it off with a floral headpiece for extra statement factor, because after all, it is SO MUCH FUN to dress up!

And of course, don't forget a pair of killer heels. These black Mary Jane pumps are flirty and sophisticated which is exactly the kind of shoe you want on a girl's night out. Hopefully you won't be holding them by the end of it!

Sunday - Relaxed Errand Running

Sundays are made for sleeping in, coffee and good food at brunch, market-hopping and getting organised for the week ahead. So while you're getting busy ticking each thing off of your checklist, slip on an outfit that fits the bill for each thing you have to do!

I've opted for a grunge-y look with a printed tank tucked into a flippy leather circle skirt which is really comfortable while still looking put together and chic. Add a floppy hat for some seventies glam, and get your indie on with a pair of loudly printed socks peeking out from some casual black lace ups.
