November is when the autumn season really sets in. So here are some fashion and lifestyle tips for adapting to the much colder and gloomier weather which is on the way:

1. Denim

Denim is still seriously popular right now! Why not try adding a pair of fluffy tights under your dungaree dresses or a thick jumper under your denim jacket for added warmth?

2. Layering

There is no need to cast away your summer t-shirts just yet – try layering them up under a jumper, perfect for the changing temperatures when diving in and out of shops near Christmas time!

3. Black boots

A staple for any autumn wardrobe is a good pair of black boots, whether heeled or flat, chunky or classic, they are perfect for when the cold and rain start settling in. H&M always have a great collection!

4. Hats

The bobble hat craze is back for another year! Hats are the cosiest and prettiest accessory for November and are perfect for keeping your ears warm when watching the fireworks.

5. Florals and studs

They’re here to stay from the summer season and are perfect on a statement bag to spice up a plain black outfit and distract from the gloomy weather.

6. Loungewear

Now, a dressing gown might not be the most fashionable item around, but it is definitely a staple for this time of year. Why not make it even cosier by treating yourself to one with a hood?

7. Fashion shows

Norwich have some amazing fashion events this month. The Norwich Christmas Fashion Show on 30th November is particularly great and perfect for those looking to impress during the Christmas season!

8. Christmas preparation

November is the ideal time to start your Christmas shopping early. There is nothing worse than watching the whole of November (and then December) fly by and admit that once again you should have sorted everything out earlier. Try writing a list of the key things you need to get this year – and maybe add a few little treats for yourself too!

9. Hand cream

November is also the time where hand cream becomes a handbag essential. Palmers is a personal favourite for its delicious cocoa butter scent!

10. Skincare

Beauty gurus have introduced hyaluronic acid into their skincare this season. It is essentially a moisture enhancing serum which works perfectly to prevent dryness. The brand ‘The Ordinary’ is repeatedly recommended and is only £6 on ASOS!

11. Christmas countdown!

Last but not least… November is always one of those months where you barely realise it’s here before it’s over and the countdown to Christmas has begun, so don’t work too hard, don’t study too hard, and just enjoy it!
