New Look #AutumnForecast Outfits

As a massive fan of New Look and their regular and plus size range, I was very excited to take part in their #AutumnForecast campaign. I was asked to pick two outfits from the website, focusing on new pieces and current trends and I am simply in love with every single item featured below.

The first outfit is all black and includes a lot of leather, well... faux leather. I wish I could wear leather trousers comfortably, but I am more than happy to go for 'leather look' leggings instead. For this outfit, I picked Inspire High Waisted Leather Look Leggings and they are amazing! I am wearing them with a simple Black Zip Front Top and Inspire Leather Look Jacket. The top has zips on both sides of the neckline and it is quite short, but I went for a slightly bigger size for a more relaxed look and extra length. The faux lather jacket is from New Look's plus size range as well and I am wearing a size 20. It is slightly too big, but I really like it and I will get a lot of wear out of it. To accessorize the outfit, I added a big Black Gem Necklace and a black Fedora hat. I have a slight obsession with hats at the moment :)

I wasn't sure what shoes to pick. Black boots would be quite an obvious choice and I already own far too many pairs, so I settled on the Wide Fit Black Metal Trim Heels. Oh my... They are absolutely gorgeous and look really, really expensive. Perfect shoes for parties, events or when you want to feel very sexy :) The Black Chain Front Bag is quite simple, but it is a real gem, retailing at only £19.99. It's beautiful and available in four different colours.

The second outfit is inspired by the 'Wild West' trend and I opted for something I can wear on warmer and colder days. The Inspire Khaki Shirt Dress is a key piece for any plus size gal. In fact, I think it would look amazing on anyone. It can be worn as a dress, as a long shirt with leggings or jeans and you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. 

I added a Cream Faux Fur Gilet for a more A/W feel and the same black Fedora hat because I am obsessed with it! The Stone Contrast Leopard Print Panel Bag and Tan Leather Cross Strap Chelsea Boots go together perfectly and the Inspire Tan Belt adds more definition to my waist and compliments the shoes and bag as well.  I am also wearing the same black gem necklace,  but I made it a little bit longer with a small chain extension, so it sits just below the open collar of the dress. 

The boots are probably my favourite piece from the second outfit. They are very comfortable and go with almost everything. They are made with real leather and the quality is outstanding. The faux fur gilet might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I have always wanted to style this kind of outfit and I am glad I did :)
