With autumn leaves coating the ground and Halloween just around the corner I’ve been trying out some nineties grunge themed outfits inspired by everyone’s favourite vampire slayer- Buffy! This time of year always makes me want to dress in dark colours with big chunky boots which we all know is statement slayer style. So, I have picked out some of my favourite items and have created a nineties autumnal look to share with you.
|Boots - New Look £29.99|
The first item I chose for this look was a gorgeous pair of chunky lace up ankle boots from New Look. These are also available in black but I chose to get them in dark red to match the natural shades of autumn and add a pop of colour to my outfit. These boots are super comfy as they only have a slight heel and they keep your feet lovely and snug in the cold weather. I love everything about these boots – they are perfect for kicking some demon butt!
|Velvet scruchie - Boots £1|
Nineties style was all about the accessories and velvet was a key trend. Therefore, the next item I used in this outfit was a black velvet scrunchie from Boots. Another similar accessory you could add to this look is a velvet chocker necklace. I am continually seeing velvet clothes and accessories in shops at the moment, so this trend is definitely making a comeback. The second accessory I added to this look was a silver crucifix necklace which was a style staple worn by Buffy.
With Halloween on the horizon I have been absolutely loving the dark colours in my wardrobe. To give this look a darker feel I added a black turtleneck crop-top. This top is fantastic as it adds a sleek feel to any outfit and is great for both nights out and everyday wear. It is very tight fitting but made of a stretchy material so is therefore really comfy to wear and perfectly shows off your figure.
|Tartan skirt - New Look £19.99|
A nineties look really wouldn’t be complete without a mini skirt. I chose this red tartan skirt from New Look. It’s made of a nice thick material which makes it perfect for the colder autumn and winter months. This skirt adds some colour to this dark outfit and is ideal for giving a retro nineties feel to any look.
There we have it a completed Buffy inspired autumnal look. If you add a stake then it’s a perfect cosplay for Halloween or you can be like me and just wear it as an everyday autumn look.
