Here's the key: start off with keeping things tonal. Choose a base colour (I went for burgundy, because, so autumnal right?) then don't stray too far from it. This look was lifted with the subtle mauve panels and alabaster stripes in this ASOS faux fur gilet, then grounded in black. Keep silhouettes simple, and don't layer two super thick things over each other unless you really do want the Joey effect. And voila! Cool weather layering made simple.
Note the cropped flare jeans again. They have been getting a lot of air-time on my blog lately. I'm sorry skinny jeans, but there's a new style in town with a more interesting silhouette that I just can't get enough of.
