Yes! It’s nearly time for Autumn Style File style challenge again.  I don’t know if I am more excited about the fun of the style challenge or that March means a hint of cooler weather to come.

It’s really easy to play along.  Just check the daily style prompt, style your outfit, take a snap and share!  Don’t forget to tag #AutumnStyleFile and any tags for the day, and tag in @stylefileinsta so I can check in and give you some post likes and comment love!

Because you guys love Style File challenges so much, I’ve got good news for you.  There are daily prompts for a whole month!

I’m going to share style tips and styling ideas for every single prompt, with a visual guide thanks to the gorgeous Kelly at Little Party Dress.

So sit back and enjoy Part 1 of the tips for Autumn Style File style challenge.  Make sure to follow @stylefileinsta on Instagram for daily reminders!
