Nothing says autumn more than the colour burgundy! Summer is no more and now we are currently experiencing the confused weather and we are not really sure what to wear. That’s where transitional outfits come into play. The material is a little heavier, maybe you layer your clothes a bit more, whatever works for you. For me, I opt for the heavier and warmer long-sleeved pieces because i feel like layering makes me look a little bulkier.
I am trying to maintain my colourful wardrobe and I refuse to revert back to my grey and black and navy colours, just because its fall/autumn. This bodycon dress is a perfect transitional piece. It is the Lace Up Front Round Neck Bodycon Dress from a collaboration between fellow fashion blogger Sarah Ashcroft and Missguided and you can get it here.
I am a huge fan of bodycon dresses and this one is right up my street. I am wearing it in a size 14 UK/IRL and because it has a good amount of stretch, I was able to fit into it despite being a size 16 UK/IRL. It was originally €29 but Missguided offer discounts for students and sometimes just for promotions so make use of those discount codes to make sure you don’t miss out on a bargain!
I paired the dress with black thigh-high boots from Primark. I love these boots and I am surprised that this is only my second time blogging with them because they go with everything! Have a look at how I styled them with denim here. I’ll be on the look out to see when the boots will be back on sale this season because they are a definite must have especially if they remain at the €25 – €30 price point they were last autumn when I first bought them.
Alternatively, you can throw on a pair of tights and some flats, whether they are ballet pumps or runners and you would be good to run around for the day! If you want to see this look live, click on over to my YouTube channel here.
BTW, don’t let the lace-up aspect put you off. It’s purely for decorative purposes and it doesn’t open in the front.
Thank you for reading all the way down to the bottom.
Peace and Love.
