As many of you know, I’ve been blogging for the Dublin Fashion Festival and sometimes I repost my pieces on Killer Fashion, and today’s post is one of those. Timeless pieces are like staples, you’ve got to have one of each because they’ll never go out of fashion, and you can wear them all year round. So with the Autumn/Fall season here, it’s time to say goodbye to sun dresses, sandals and welcome warm, snuggly gear ahead of the falling leaves and (fingers crossed!) the snow. Many of you may be starting back to college, and it’s always fun to dress up & down for your new lectures, new classmates but most importantly for yourself. Likewise, a new office start or job opportunity means you can dress to impress and still earn fashion brownie points. Here are some looks I’ve put together for this particular reason from Dublin City’s department stores and favourite high street shops.
Look #1 – Timeless Workwear
This look incorporates the classic LBD with smart but chic black heels for the perfect at-the-office attire. If you’re heading out in the evening then this red coat (coat colour of the season) is perfect to keep you warm, and the tan handbag ties it altogether. As for makeup; opt for winged liner, a little rouge on the cheeks and a pinky-hue lipstick to top it off. Features: Alex & Ani, Basler, Marella, Love Moschino, Carvela by Kurt Geiger, Marc Jacobs, Benefit Cosmetics, L’Oréal Paris. This whole look is available in Arnotts.
Look #2 – Timeless Workwear
For this look, I’ve chosen the smart suit with a fashionable twist. Ankle grazing trousers and a one-button blazer help show off both the top and shoes with ease. Despite what some people may say, matching hues is a great look for the office; it reflects that you’re organised & very much in control. Opt for big lashes but nude lips to really work this style. Features: Dunnes Stores, Carolyn Donnelly, Dune Shoes, Too Faced, Clinique. This look is available in selected Dunnes Stores, Debenhams & Dune concessions.
Look #3 – Timeless College
When it comes to college, you want to be comfortable and fashionable simultaneously. This look is a bit girly but very lecture & weather-appropriate, and can take you from the classroom to the pub on Fridays too. Working a skater skirt & sweater with comfortable boots is a sure look for an all-day college day that will work for both Autumn & Winter. Makeup wise, I advise a light long-lasting foundation with good mascara and subtle eyeshadow and a hydrating lip balm. Features: River Island, Parfois, Korkys, Cath Kidston, Rimmel London, bareMinerals, Maybelline. This look is available in River Island, Parfois, Korkys, Cath Kidston, Boots & Brown Thomas.
Look #4 – Timeless College
Nothing says timeless more than the classic blue jeans and white t-shirt look. So for this look, opt for figure-hugging jeans that fit snug with a cool white tee for that calm & collected college vibe. Mixing blue hues together adds for a great combination while sticking to key pieces. Features: Miss Selfridge, River Island, New Look, J&M, L’Oréal Paris. This look is available in Miss Selfridge, River Island, New Look, Korkys & Boots.
