This is the outfit formula we'll living by all autumn long

You look forward to the shopping trip(s), you buy the trend pieces. Then you wear the same outfit all season long

I write about them, and I lust over them, but I tend not to wear 'the trends'. There's a simple reason; I don't want to wear the same thing as everyone else. This would be notable if I were the type of person who picks up amazing, one-off vintage pieces in underground, magical stores. But I end up wearing black jeans and tops most of the time, which has the possibility of making me look worse than trendy. I could end up looking basic.

I try to unbasicify myself with shoes and accessories. Black jeans and a top with big gold hoops and these shoes? Not basic. A mini skirt and a jumper? Basic. A mini skirt and a gigantic jumper with cool boots? Not basic. And that, friends, is what I'll be wearing from September 1st onwards.

I'll be going bare-legged for as long as my pins can take it, then I'll move to black tights. Or colourdy tights. Tights is an a/w 17 trend that non-trendy people can get take on, because they keep your legs warm. Just add big earrings.
