Tesco & F+F Fashion | The Edgy Autumn Look |

What's an Autumn wardrobe without a biker jacket and boots? In my opinion, the biker jacket and boots are a must have staple within any wardrobe, everyone needs them. After re-assessing my Autumn wardrobe, I decided that this year was the year to invest in some new Autumn attire and I was amazed that I found my perfect Autumn pieces in Tesco / F + F!

Faux Fur Collar Biker Jacket
Faux Fur Collar Biker Jacket - Age 12-13 - £22
Like I said, what's an Autumn wardrobe without a biker jacket?! I wear mine out and about in town in the day and through to the night when I go out for a meal when there's a chill about. What's not to love?

I was amazed when one caught my eye in Tesco but I have to admit, it was in the Children's clothing section (please don't judge, kids clothes come up quite big these days!). The jacket is faux leather and lined, but at £22 you can't complain and just a note, the prices elevate with regards to sizes!
What was a major seller for me was the faux fur. It's detachable around the collar, so you don't have to have it on all of the time and as it's fastened with buttons, it's not majorly fiddly but it is secure so it's not a just a whap on and whap off job.  The shoulders are decorated with epaulettes on the sleeves which adds to the aesthetics and eye and the tops of the sleeves are detailed with a stripe pattern created by the direction that the fabric has been sown.

It has a zip which has an asymmetric zip fastening style, so it fastens to the side slightly, making it a bit of an eyecatcher but because of the collar flaps, I prefer not to fasten it to the top as it feels slightly uncomfortable with all the fabric underneath. The breast collar is detailed with poppers on both points, adding to the aesthetics and look of the jacket rather than function.

The jacket has functional zipped pockets and although they aren't majorly deep, this could be because it is a childs jacket!
This jacket isn't the most amazing jacket I've seen on the high street, but at £22 I can't be negative about it. Considering my experience with age 12-13 kids clothes, it fits me very well. The quality is very good and it's pretty much everything I am looking for in a biker jacket this season.

Now; Shoes!
Zip Front Wedge Boot
Zip Front Wedge Boot - £25
 Firstly, the boots are only available in black but I feel if they came in a deep wine colour they'd be a hit, especially as it's bang on this season! Secondly, I am not a heel person. I much prefer flat boots or dollies and if I ever do wear heels, they're a maximum 3 inches and for special occasions! When I saw these boots in F + F at Tesco, I just knew I would wear them. They are perfect for creating an edgy look this Autumn season and perfect to rock up an outfit on a night out.
They are faux suede so they are soft to touch, giving them a high end look to them! The boots feature a double buckle on the side and a functional zip on the front. Although it's functional, it's purely for aesthetics as there is an inside ankle zip to help get them on and off!

 The heel size is 7.5cm, 3.5 inches and bearable due to the wedge as it gives you more balance. I think the wedge is soo much easier to walk in to be honest, do you agree? The soles of the boots are cleated, giving you extra grip and makes it more comfortable to walk. Talking of walking, I wore these out a few times and I am in love. They are amazing - I really need to start investing in some new and 'grown up' clothes ready for this season!

What do you think of the two new additions to my wardrobe this Autumn season? Have you bought anything new or are there some things you just can't part with?

Price: 4 STARS You can't really be negative about a faux leather jacket being £22, not in my opinion anyway. £25 is also quite reasonable for the wedged boots, but there are similar ones on the high street at similar prices too.

Promises: 5 STARS These will definitely keep you up to date with the trends this Autumn. They're must-have staples in any wardrobe.

Ease of Wear: 5 STARS The jacket is very easy to put on and take off as well as wear about town whilst shopping or on a night out. The boots are equally easy to wear - I don't even feel like I have them on, even with the heel! Wedges all the way!

Would I Recommend to a Friend?: YES Don't knock buying clothes from your local supermarket. The clothes you can find can surprise you. Have a peek, you'll be impressed.
