Guest post: Taking your wardrobe from summer to autumn

Hi guys, I'm Jess from Raffles Bizarre, I'm a jewellery designer and makeup artist from South West London, I blog about my work, fashion, food and fact anything that takes my fancy! I noticed Fei was looking for guest bloggers and I jumped at the chance to write a post for her wonderful blog.

We decided I should create a little styling post, sharing some summer-to-autumn transitional outfits and how I would accessorise them with my own handmade jewellery. I've created three outfits on different themes and all the clothing I've featured are from highstreet shops to make them as accessible for everyone as possible! Let's get started!

In this first outfit I have combined pieces from Warehouse, New Look, Topshop and Miss Selfridges - I've chosen the biker jacket to so this outfit that would be perfect in the summer because of the light, sleeveless top can also be worn at night when it's cooler or come autumn/winter. I am loving all the little studded details on the collar, shoes and bag. I'm also a huge fan of exposed zips so these leggings were a must.

The jewellery I have selected are all from my Hidden Treasure collection which features a lot of stones, metal and chunky but intricate and beautiful pieces.

Outfit total - £254.49

Perfect for the festival lovers out there, we're nearly at the end of festival season now but that doesn't mean we need to stop wearing those festival trends. I love the aztec prints that have been floating around this summer, with this oversized jumper you could keep on trend but still be warm. These items were found at Miss Selfridges, River Island and Topshop.

I've paired this outfit with three pieces from my Festival range, I love feather jewellery and it is definately something popular amongst the festival crowds.

Outfit total - £186.00

Pastels were another big trend this summer so it was an obvious choice as the final theme. These are pieces from Topsop, River Island, New Look and Warehouse. I have introduced the blazer and scarf to take what would be a gorgeous summer outfit and make it more appropriate for autumn.

I've chosen three very different pieces of jewellery which are all cute in their own right, the ring is from my most popular collection called Illustrated Jewellery which features my own original artwork on plastic.

Outfit total - £164.13

So there we have it, three very different outfits perfect for the fast approaching new season. I personally love summer so will be sad for the days to get cooler, but I already have a few new chunky, knit cardigans ready for autumn which softens the blow somewhat.

What did you think of the outfits I put together here and how I accessorised them and which is your favourite? I hope you
