Autumn Fashion at Midland Gate

Just when we have perfected our summer looks the cool autumn mornings have arrived and we feel like we no longer have anything to wear. I visited Perth’s fashion focused shopping centre Midland Gate to see what they had to offer and I was impressed with how many of my favourite speciality stores were there. Everything I need in the one shopping centre is my idea of paradise.

 I love quality fashion, I desire value and I want to look modern. The Autumn/Winter fashion at Midland Gate meets my criteria and I had the best experience creating looks for the Guess the Retailer competition.

Achieving a cohesive look with removable layers is my aim when selecting autumn outfits. As the temperature fluctuates I want to take off outer pieces but still feel confident and standout for the right reasons in my base look. I will talk you through how I achieve this so you can use it as a guide when out shopping for your outfits.

 

Casual Weekend

Its all about the high waisted mom jean, boyfriend jean or anything with a relaxed fit right now. Jeanswest had so many pairs to choose from and I settled on the mid indigo Alison Mom Jean which has a small amount of distressing and an open knee detail. A fail safe way to wear this style of jean is with a slogan tee. The Florence slogan tee and Alison Mom jean worn with a belt, sneaker or boot is a simple outfit that is on trend. For the cooler times of the day I recommend a blazer or an edgy jacket to finish it off. The Natalie casual jacket with the military buttons is a perfect choice.  I love the contrast between the denim jeans and jacket, the pop of colour in the tee and the overall street style

Girls Night Out

A dress and a pair of ankle boots is a great choice when you want to get dressed up but not feel too covered up. You can secretly wear stockings for a bit of warmth with a statement jacket and you are ready to party. I selected from Valley Girl a Temt Black and silver bodycon dress, black ankle boots with a silver block heel, a burgundy PU biker jacket and a burgundy snake skin pattern clutch.

 Adventures Here We Come

Kathmandu is a goldmine for practical fashion when you want warmth, quick dry, comfort and durability for all your weekend and holiday adventures. The look I put together is also ideal for casual everyday wear. It’s the closest thing to activewear that is acceptable to wear all day long and everywhere.

The grey Mamora hiking pants can be worn rolled up in autumn and worn down in winter. The blue driMOTION long sleeve active t-shirt adds a pop of colour and looks great layered with the black Heli Lightweight Down Vest. For the colder days the black Isograd ngx 3-in-1 rain jacket suits perfectly.

Shoes and accessories are plentiful in Kathmandu so I have added the purple Fletcher II ngx Trail Shoes, a grey Lawrence waterproof cap and a pink vacuum carabiner water bottle for some finishing touches.

She Means Business

Midland Gate has a Beme store full of fashion in sizes 14 – 26 to suit many style personalities. I chose to showcase a smart casual outfit that would be suitable for lunch with friends or even a work outfit. I am an in-betweenie of regular and plus sizes and when I am searching the racks in plus size stores I am wanting to find those pieces which are modern but simply available in a larger size offering.

The 3/4 Sleeve Asymmetric Neck Mono Top caught my attention. I paired it with teal crop Bengaline pants to add a pop of colour. Vests are a great layering piece in autumn and they also add vertical lines which can visually elongate the body so the black sleeveless long line drape vest was added. I have worn this look with sandals but enclosed shoes such as pointed toe or ballet flats would be perfect as the temperature drops. The Amber Rose black crossover handbag and brushed metal pendant are the final touches for this look.

Get dressed kids, we are going out!

I have always found finding trendy clothes for my son more of a challenge then it is to buy for my daughter so I opted to show off a little boys look. Cotton On Kids has great choice for both. Comfortable pants, a long sleeve tops and a puffer vest is a great combo for kids to play in. I spotted the golden orange Billie puffer vest and thought it would add fun colour to the white with wolves print Tom Long Sleeve Tee . The Chad Joggers look super comfortable, I want a pair for myself!

The sun is still out so the camo print baseball hat adds sun protection as well as extra style personality. I couldn’t resist the Darcy Gusset boot but the classic slip on sneaker is another option for your little man to get around the playground in.
