Winter is coming...

So, as I'm sure we've all noticed... the temperature has now dropped; and whilst I hope to enjoy a few warmer days, it's time to embrace Britain's finest weather that's upon us. I've always loved the upcoming seasons, as I prefer winter clothes and the festivities that come with it. However, during this transitional period of autumn, it makes it hard to distinguish the temperature ("coat, or no coat?") and choosing what to wear can be impossible. I've just moved back to London for my second year of University, and as all those that live in London know, there is a lot of walking! Also, combined with getting on and off the tube, it can be a real mix of climates. I'm yet to find an autumn jacket (transitional, not to warm, not to light) that I'm keen on, (maybe a bomber?) and I'm definitely yet to pull out the Canada Goose or the overcoats...

T-shirt by  FEAR OF GOD
Shirt by  OUR LEGACY

This season, I'll be wearing lots of neutral colours, layers upon layers, destroyed denim, plaid shirts, oversized tee's, and of course boots. On that note, it's been a perfect time to wear my Bottega Veneta Chelsea boots in the 'ardoise' colourway, a great rounded toe, casual and comfy Chelsea boot (see Top 3 Chelsea Boots). Whilst the weather is still reasonable and not yet baltic I've been rocking lots of layers due to the versatility of being able to add or remove layers depending on whether the sun is out or not. Especially when it comes to jumping on and off the tube, it is impossible to know what to wear; however wearing layers makes this far easier.

An essential layering piece for me, is this grey marl Fear of God 'inside-out' t-shirt. Yes, its made inside-out! Whilst this may appear as something odd, it's become a rebellious look that both Gosling and Kanye have been seen rocking. Originally deriving from a youth culture 80’s trend; I believe it gives a distressed look by exposing the rough hems. The t-shirt boasts a great boxy fit with dropped shoulders adding a really slouched and chilled look, the neutral colour makes it easy to pair with just about anything. Layered over my tee is a Our Legacy plaid shirt that has been a really easy transitional piece; whilst great for winter its also been great now to throw over a t-shirt, over the shoulder, have unbuttoned over another layer and obviously buttoned up, this all being dependent on the varying, unpredictable UK weather. It is made out of a thick Portuguese cotton which has been pigment dyed to give an over-dyed and vintage distressed look to the plaid. This shirt has lots of deep blue and purple/red tones whilst having a dark wash on top making the shirt have a lot more subtlety, yet still exhibiting a large selection of wintery tones. I swear by Our Legacy's shirting... and this shirt for Autumn/Winter certainly doesn't disappoint, paired with the ardoise BV's, I think it’s a great match.
