Every year, winter comes around and it becomes a struggle every time when it comes to choosing an outfit for a night out. Jacket? No jacket? Tights? No tights? Here are some simple solutions. Save that cold-avoiding taxi cash and take some inspiration from these practical yet pretty outfits. With the dregs of winter still fading away that cold is still here, but now you’ll survive that breeze on the way to the club!

Red, gold and black is always a perfect combination. Keep warm with a long sleeve bodycon and rock it with thick black tights to stop that chill getting to your legs. And because the dress is bodycon, you can pair it with some comfortable and warm ankle boots and it will still look just as glamorous, finished with that hint of gold in the triple chain necklace.

A more casual outfit, yet dressed up with high wedges to make this the perfect winter party outfit. Hints of gold in the necklace and cuff add some needed sparkle! Layer up in glamorous shine disco pants, and a crop top under a classic jumper with a twist of furry texture. Stay even warmer by sneakily layering a few pairs of tights under the disco pants too…

Going to a club with a cloakroom and got that spare £1? In that case, sparkle like a snowflake in a white lace dress under this season’s key piece, the boyfriend coat. Stay monochrome with black shoes. These two texture wedges give the perfect point of interest to this outfit, the ankle straps softening the height so you don’t look too garish! Finish it all off with a simple gold chain and red lipstick.

Ever tried choosing between warmth and appearance? It’s a tough one, which is why despite that it’s already been touched here on Green Eyes, we’ve found the secret for you…

Perfecting the warm look can be difficult, but we’ve found the easiest way to tackle it is be simplistic, but say it with a statement shirts. With bold shirts being seen all over SS13 collections the shirt can be your ultimate weapon; wether its oversizing, prints, or texture, throw on jeans, leather and a scarf and the spring weather is nothing.

1) This Diesel shirt from Asos transcends oversizing and print, with a slouchy size making any frame look smaller and the print becoming the key focus piece in any outfit.

2) Another print shirt, the sheer material makes this piece perfect for day or night, be brave and go shirt-and-bra for the bar, or layer with a stringshirt underneath for the chill of the daytime.

3) And finally, to really make an impact, build texture up. With the bright blue and white hues creating a bold piece already, the fringe effect gives the top shape and character. Wear this with leather in an all black ensemble to really emphasize the tops design!

With autumn leaving behind dreggs of floral prints and sunglasses, many of us are mourning our summer dresses and starting to wear those denim jeams a little too much, but transforming from summer may not be as hard as you think. But ‘how could I stay chic AND warm?’ I may hear you ask…my answer to you: The circle skirt. Wardrobe essential for AW12, a piece that is perfect for the classic look, the vintage look, the cutesy look; daywear, nightwear, workwear, these skirts can be woven into the key piece of any outfit or occasion.

The Circle Skirt

1) Go for a black skirt if you know it’ll be that piece you love and never want to take off; you can wear with simple black wedges and a dark printed top for that gothis, dark and elusive element, or go with a bold, bright, block colour shirt and bag to boast confidence despite the gloomy weather.

2) A wine coloured crotchet skirt matched with a denim button up and cute wedges creates the foundation of the perfect vintage look, match with a vintage black bowler or summer hat, oversized gold earrings with an under-collar necklace to channel the past while capturing contemporary glamour.

3) The dip-dye denim skirt from Nasty Gal strikes a bold edge, perfect with a black crop-top and thick gold chain with creepers for that modern-edgy feel, and then just switch to a pair of chunky heels (Jefferey Campbell Lita’s anyone?) to tranform from perfect daywear to the life of the party stunner.

4) Channel Chanel with this nude skirt, on sale in Matalan at just £8 – throw over a grey jumper and tuck in the front, some mid-height brogue heels in a dark grey and complete with simple black bangles and a low hanging bold necklace piece to look classic chic wherever you go.

5) Topshop’s ode to summer, yet perfectly wearable this autumn – darker floral print tranferring a typical sunshine piece into a slight ray into the gloomy cloud ridden weather we’re unfortunate enough to suffer; and for the brave clash with the Topshop daisy blousen for a bold print style.

6) Taking a simple black wedge and snazzing them up with a quilted look heel and small studs to give that edge to a cute shoe, perfect with almost any circle skirt, above and existant.

7) Oversized daisy shirt, throw on and tuck in the front, simple as that.

Do you love the circle skirts as much as we do? Will you be keeping these key in your autumn wardrobe? Or do you have a better idea of bringing summer forwards? Leave us your thoughts in the comments below!

To those not at Reading and Leeds this weekend, you may be heading to Notting Hill Carnival, a huge event bursting with style influences; and if you’re not into the huge elaborate decorative pieces often seen there, here we’ll show you how to get that carnival look without going over-the-top.

Jewellery is a big-impact method of getting a bold aspect into an outfit, with statement jewellery always bang on trend and just a clip away from adding that wow factor to your day. With high street store New Look currently selling jewellery 2 for the price of 1, the jewellery ranges from simple stud earrings to the statement pieces included in the carnival style set, oversized earrings and necklaces going together to create a boom on the carnival streets.

Despite the typically forecasted rain, denim shorts with D.I.Y look grunge hints give a floral and feminine bralet added attitude – and then the outfit can go either way! Pair this with hidden heel high tops for the more street style wear (a little more suitable for carnival too) or dress it up by continuing the cutesy appeal with floral wedges; extra height and feminity.

And all these can be grabbed between £4.99 and £80, so you’ve got plenty left over for the carnival celebrations.

If you’re attending Notthing Hill Carnival this bank holiday, what will you be wearing? Would you wear this to carnival? Or will you be wearing this elsewhere? Leave us your comments below!
