A couple of days ago I got an email from the lovely people at VoucherCodes.co.uk about the latest project for their Most Wanted magazine. The challenge was to create an autumn outfit for under £50 to show that you can update your wardrobe for this season without breaking the bank. I thought the challenge sounded like fun, and I always love a good bargain, so spent a hour or two browsing through some online stores to see what I could come up with.
The main part of my outfit consists of a gorgeous purple wrap dress from New Look. I love the colour of this dress, I’m always a fan of the deep purples and maroons that start to appear in the shops as the weather gets colder. I have a very similar dress in black which I bought from Topshop last year, but this one is around half the price. Bargain!
In the autumn it’s always a good idea to have a scarf and some woolly tights to keep you warm. I really liked this H&M tube scarf/snood, it looks so cosy and would be easy to throw on top of just about any outfit. To finish the look off, I’ve gone for some studded loafers and a pair of cross earrings. Studs seem to be very popular at the moment and I think they really help to make an outfit stand out more. If you add a big snuggly jacket, this outfit would be perfect for cold autumn days, or if you ditch the tights and scarf and add a pair of heels instead it would be perfect for a night out.
If you fancy taking part in the Fall Fashion Finder challenge, all you need to do is head over to Pinterest to enter the competition. Simply create a board with the items you would choose for an autumn outfit, up to a total of £50, and you could be in with the chance of winning everything on the board for yourself. Have a look at Voucher Code’s Pinterest and follow their board for more details, or have a look at my board for some inspiration!
