Why I'm Refusing to Fall into Seasonal Trends

Beauty and fashion carry trends with them every year, which often follow the same pattern. Spring and Autumn are known as transitional seasons, Summer is a time for bright, bold colours and Autumn is time for berry tones a pumpkin spiced lattes. I find myself unintentionally falling into these trends every year, wearing the same types of clothes just slightly different designs - and if I'm honest, I'm kind of bored of it. I'm not saying I'm going to start wearing strappy camis in winter and my fluffy scarf in summer. But, I will be taking a different approach to my style.

I'll start with my makeup. I've been loving my NYX Ultimate Brights Palette which features some gorgeous colourful shades which I have been experimenting with on my eyes. It occurred to me that I bought that palette at the beginning of August, and with October just starting, I'm not ready to put it away just yet. I want to incorporate some of those "summery" colours into my Autumnal wardrobe and still be so-called on trend.

I think the main issue stems from the retailers themselves. If you walk into highstreet stores in the autumn, you are greeted with an abundance of camel, black, grey and beige tones. All colours I love, but admittedly get bored of wearing. I've noticed many online retailers such as MissGuided and PrettyLittleThing have broken away from this slightly. Last year I was close to purchasing a bright pink aviator coat online, I just didn't have the confidence to wear it.

This year I'm going to try change that and would love to see examples of other bloggers doing the same. If you have tips for breaking away from mainstream Autumnal trends please let me know!

I'm saying all of this, but yes I will still be wearing my MAC Rebel lipstick and my black denim jeans most of autumn, but also finding little ways in which I can make my style that little bit more interesting.
