Layering with Fashion World

Autumn is always a difficult one for me.

I don't want to stop wearing my summer clothes JUST yet, but I am turning a funny shade of blue as the temperature begins to drop and APPARENTLY it is not socially acceptable for me to hibernate. (RUDE)

So what do I do? I begin to layer up. So far this autumn, apart from a few days that have made me want to rethink the whole hibernation rule, I have been able to add tights to dresses and throw on a cardigan.

I am a lover of cardigans, (partly because of the "I hate my arms" thing and partly because cardigans are just so snuggly) and I always find in the Autumn that cardigans and wraps are my equivalent of a duvet coat, (which is still not a "thing" unfortunately)

The great thing about layering with cardigans is that you can find every type of cardigan from something oversized and fluffy to something delicate and formal. Being a fan of the 50's style dresses I have fallen in love with THIS cardigan,

which is by Voodoo Vixen and available from Fashion World, here. Voodoo Vixen Retro Kitty
this is a fab cardigan that I could wear to an event over one of my summer dresses. (Yes, I am going to buy it, I'm selling it to myself here)

Another smart way to layer is with this Joanna Hope Faux Fur trim Cardigan, available here Joanna Hope

This has a smart casual feel to it, warm and stylish. WIN.

Another favourite of mine has to be the cape. It is the socially acceptable way to walk around in a blanket, and this is a stylish blanket. (Yes, I want it) This Diamante knitted cape also by Joanna Hope is available here Joanna Hope knitted cape

If you throw in a hat, a scarf and some thermal underwear while you are at it, I think we can make it through Autumn easily. For me, layering is the way to go and I prefer to wear more layers in the autumn as the season changes (avoids using the words seasonal transition)

Next stop, Winter and ALLLLLLLLLL the knitwear.

If you want to have a browse of Fashion Worlds knitwear, you can find more here.


How do you wear Autumn? Are you a fan of layering or are you more of a hibernation person too?

Let me know.

  1. This is the third time I've tried posting this comment and obviously feel SO strongly about my love for Voodoo Vixen that I've persisted haha LOVE that Simply Be and Fashion World are now stocking VV! Can't wait to get a dressssss! Loving the red cardi <3
    LOVE me some Autumn layering, lest I freeze ;) x

  2. I adore that cardigan! And the cape too! So awesome. I try to layer but I'm not very good at it...! I need to learn to dress my new body shape.

  3. Love, love, love the first two. I live in a ski resort and trying to be fashionable at -10 can be hard. It's tempting just to wear your ski jacket all the time, and it gets hot indoors so it's hard to be fashionable. Especially when you have big boobs and bum!!!!

  4. For me cardigans are the way forward at this time of year.
    I'm not a fan of big chunky jumpers. I really like the 50's cardigan and the diamond cape is so pretty!


  5. that top cardigan is amazing! I love cardigans, never without one!
