Autumn Style File 2017
It’s that time again. Time to celebrate Autumn Style File with Kimba Likes and She Writes with our 14 day style challenge!
Good gods, the weather has been weird, so we have pulled together prompts that will work in hot weather to cool weather to rainy weather and every permutation in between!
Our Style File challenges are the easiest peasiest lemon squeeziest style challenges you have ever met. Feel free to interpret the prompts any way you wish. I’ve pulled together some ideas for you.
Wednesday 1 March PINKTASTIC
Because on Wednesdays we wear pink, of course! If your wardrobe isn’t full of pink, try a pink blush, pink lippy, or wear pink gold, aka rose gold.
Thursday 2 March WIDE LEGGED
Not a fan of wide legged pants? Try a wide or fluted sleeve.
Friday 3 March MATCHY MATCHY
You can team a matching top and bottom, keep it simple by wearing tonal shades of one colour, or keep it classic with black and white pieces and accessories. Alternatively you could match your lippy to an accessory or your top. You can add #embracethematchymatchy if you like (According to Alana’s fabulous hashtag)
Saturday 4 March BOMBER JACKET
The jacket of the season! If you don’t have a bomber jacket, switch it up with a denim jacket instead
Sunday 5 March ACTIVEWEAR ACTIVEWEAR
Going out for coffee in my activewear activewear. Bingeing on Netflix in my activewear activewear. Not keen on the yummy mummy uniform? Add some sports luxe to your look with kicks and jogger style pants, or a baseball cap.
Monday 6 March FLOWER POWER
Get your flower on! Don a floral print, or pop a flower in your hair. Show us your favourite perfume.
Tuesday 7 March LACEUPS
Not keen on wearing traditional lace up brogues? Try an ankle tie or laced heel. Or think outside the square and wear a top or jacket with lacing details. Switch it up with lace detailing.
Wednesday 8 March PINK TIPS + LIPS
You know the drill. On Wednesdays we wear pink. Paint your pout pink and / or add some pink to your mani pedi.
Thursday 9 March LAYER PLAYER
Add some layers to your outfit. Perhaps an off the shoulder T shirt over a tank for a casual look, or belt a longline cardigan over a top for an office outfit.
Friday 10 March LEOPARD LOVE
This one is for my girl Sarah from She Writes. OK and for me too. We love our new neutral! Not keen on leopard? Try another animal print like snakeskin, zebra or ocelot.
Saturday 11 March SPARKLE + SHINE
Get your sparkle on. As simple as a glossy lip, as elaborate as a sequinned dress and everything in between. Metallic leather, sequin trim, jewellery, glitter nail polish, a strobed highlight …
Sunday 12 March DENIM YOUR WAY
Everybody has at least one item of denim in their wardrobe. Wear it your way! Choose denim, chambray, tencel, printed denim, coloured denim, coated denim in a dress, shirt, jacket, jeans, vest, coat … mix and match or wear just one piece.
Monday 13 March JUMPSUIT
If a jumpsuit isn’t your thing, fake one by teaming a coordinating top and pants. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Tuesday 14 March TEAM STRIPES
The other new neutral, stripes! Team with everything, and you can even mix and match your stripes. Stripes are the perfect print to print clash too. Stripes love florals and adore leopard.
