We’ve all heard people talking about how autumn is the ‘white girl’ season. Pumpkin Spice lattes, marshmallows, soap, toilet paper. Whatever products you can buy there is a chemically created chance that Pumpkin Spice will be a flavour option. But what about the ‘white girl’ fashion and makeup of fall? Why are we non Pumpkin Spice fanatics getting pushed to the side and not getting relentlessly mocked in Buzzfeed videos?
When fall finally overtakes summer and the wind swirls under our skirts, you can bet that plaid minis, blanket scarves and frustratingly fashionable floppy hats will be in every girls weekly dressing repertoire. Fall is the most unsurprising yet undeniably exciting season for clothing lovers across the world. Layers. We can eat as much cake as we want and just throw on another sweater - if anyone asks, this is fashion. Give them a look until they grow uncomfortable and leave. Eat another macaroon and add a shawl.
Leather pants, boots, capes, these are all staples of autumnal dressing but the most outrageous trend of the colder months is my personal favorite, plum lipstick. When did someone decide that it was a good idea to bring goth fashion into the lives of the trend following women? Of course we’re going to wear it if we’ve been told to! We’ve been sucked into the cult. We just have one question. Does Zoella wear it? If the answer is yes then we'll be over it like a particularly nasty yeast infection. The women’s infection. Because we are women.
Really fall is the most fun, the most cozy and, in my opinion, most risk taking season of the year. Santa sweaters withstanding. Wear what you want and love it. Take yourself out of the cult, and if you’re still in love with the blackberry lipstick just own that shit! You are a woman and you can do what you want, when you want. Eat the second piece of cake and throw on an angora free angora sweater. You do you because there will inevitably be a Buzzfeed video about it. I just hope Eugene is in it. That hair though. X
