~ The Autumn Look – My article for a Fashion Blog


It’s a Saturday morning, the season – Autumn….

You’ve had a rough week at work, stuffy suits, conference meetings, travel involved in the mix. Suddenly, the phone rings, your girlfriend invites you out to lunch. Destination – Café Sydney.
Jolted out of your week’s pressures, covered with excitement, you’re thinking, “what to wear?”
You absolutely know that your girlfriend will snazzy up in something suave, yet simple, and you couldn’t possibly go too casual.

Think girl, think!

Then out of the corner of your eyes you meet your brown boots that you bought last week. Brown…perfect for Autumn, soft, yet has the strength of control. Your eyes roam to the hangers that cradle your pants and jeans and you figure boots like these should be adorned with some ship-shape, yet, classy jeans. So that’s half of the outfit!

Upon thinking of the day outside, which is quite overcast, you also want to add some colour, therefore, in its chic array of bloom, the long knitted cardigan that every girl needs in her cupboard, grabs your attention. So, you grab it! This cardigan can be mixed and matched with all sorts of clothing. But, wait, there’s more, what better way to complement the cardigan and jeans then the caramel top that lifts the outfit to balance the autumn textures.

However, the “look” you’re going for just isn’t quite at its completion. To achieve the polished, urban appearance you’re hoping for one more thing to refine the elegant, casual expression. Voila!

It’s the black belt that can take any sort of outfit to an added boost! What also makes the black belt that little more sophisticated and graceful is the gold buckle that transports your clothing to another cultured level!

With a look like that, heads are going to turn, mouths will be talking and you’re sure to have people stop you at the café to ask where you bought your outfit from.

Girls, it’s time to ostentatiously dress up to autumns warm colours and cool days!
