Autumn Walks 1 | Practical AND Stylish

THE OVERALL LOOK - Wearing wellingtons and not looking like a farmer is quite difficult but it can be done. Delve into the ways of making wellington boots look fashionable.
Sunglasses - Italian Market Stall (
Jumper - COS (£59)
Jeans - Cheap Monday (£55)
Wellington Boots - Hunter (£95)

A NEW WAY TO WEAR GLASSES - You may think glasses are just to protect your eyes (and look cool) but they are actually pretty good at keeping your hair off your face too. This style is especially good for men with longer hair in windier weather.

STYLISH WELLINGTON BOOTS? - Very few 'wellies' look good and that's a fact. But if you invest in a good pair, they will look 100 times better and last 100 times longer too. These Original Tall Wellington Boots by Hunter (£95) seem to be the ones everyone chooses and there's a reason for that; comfort and a fashion-forward style. The cost may seem pretty steep, but if you are a festival goer you can use them in Summer as well. You can wear them with a stylish outfit and it won't ruin the look. You can also snap up a pair from Le Chameau (£255) with leather linings and even a stylish sole. If you are after a pair at a lower price, Lowther (£35) are still a very stylish looking boot.

CHUNKY KNIT CREW NECK JUMPER Paying a little more money for a well made jumper is certainly worth it as it will more than likely last you years. A jumper is a real staple item and can be worn at almost anytime of the year (especially in the UK). The pictured jumper from COS (£59) is definitely recommended. It's very warm yet practical and if treated well, making sure you don't catch the thick knit on anything, is very durable. A real classic shape and  an easy piece to throw on during clausal days or a smarter look in colder weather. Alternatively you can buy a slightly cheaper jumper from Topman (£38) or a higher end product from Rick Owens (£368)
SUNGLASSES - You don't have to pay huge amounts of money for a nice looking pair of sunglasses. The glasses pictured were bought for 9 from an Italian market stall in Sicily. Tortoise shell glasses are a real classic and a timeless fashion piece. Picking the right glasses for your face shape is also worth baring in mind. If you do want to invest in an expensive pair, Oliver Peoples (£230-270) glasses are a perfect buy and a great investment. 
THE DETAILS - Wearing two or three rings can add a new aspect to an outfit. The rings pictured are gold but silver ones can look equally as good depending on the outfit (if you are wearing all black!). Yves Saint Laurent stock a huge range of amazing jewelry for a higher end product. The Great Frog also have an incredible selection of rings ranging in prices from around £75 - £370 if you like a slightly more 'grungy' look.
