Autumn Essentials Fashion Guide – The nights are beginning to draw in, the leaves are slowly starting to turn and pumpkin spiced lattes are officially acceptable. As the weather in Autumn is unpredictable, sometimes the sun is out but other times it’s wet and miserable, knowing what to wear out is a challenge. You can leave the house in nothing but a long sleeved top and return needing a raincoat, umbrella and wishing you’d worn fluffy socks.
We have put together this guide of Autumn fashion essentials and staples that you need to have in your wardrobe this year. Fortunately for us, fashion brands have been dropping some great autumn essentials. With that being said, here are some staple must haves for your wardrobe:
A versatile coat
First on our list of autumn essentials is a versatile coat. Every autumnal wardrobe needs a simple but stylish coat that will pair perfectly with the rest of your wardrobe. Most importantly you want a coat that is thick enough to keep you warm, whilst being easy to fold up and put in your bag in case the sun decides to make an appearance. Some styles of coat we love this autumn are the trench coat, the blazer jacket and of course the puffer coat.
Our next autumn fashion essential has to be boots. There are so many different styles of boots to choose from, you can opt for a more casual style such as chelsea boots, knee highs and heeled boots. If you truly love fashion, you would get a pair in each style, but if you are looking for something for all occasions we recommend the standard chelsea boot. The Chelsea boot is a great choice for a staple footwear item in your wardrobe because they can be dressed up or dressed down. Dr martins sell some amazing quality boots that are sure to last you a long time and keep your feet warm and protected.
Another of our ultimate autumn essentials is a collection of cosy pjs, an absolute must have for the colder months. One of our favourite cosy PJ brands is Bras and Honey who sell a range of their own comfy pyjama sets that are perfect for snuggling up in front of the TV to watch netflix with a hot chocolate.
An underrated but essential piece of clothing for your autumn wardrobe is a hoodie. Paired with the right accessories a hoodie can look really stylish. If you are wondering what you can pair with a hoodie to make it more fashionable, don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here is a list of items to pair with a hoodie
- Layered gold jewellery such as rings and necklaces
- Single breasted blazer coat layered over the top of the hoodie
- Leather leggings or wet look jeans
- A cool handbag
- A long dress
Another great autumn piece is a long dress. No, we don’t mean a flowing maxi dress, we mean a long sleeved layered dress that can be paired with chelsea boots or even white trainers. A long dress is a great way to give off a smart casual vibe, perfect for work, yet perfect to keep you warm. Our favourite patterns to look out for on a long dress this autumn are polka dots and animal prints. These prints make the dress more exciting, cinch the dress in at the waist with a nice belt to make it more flattering and you’re good to go.
Turtle neck top
Last but not least on our list of autumn essentials is a turtle neck style top. This style of top offers protection from the cold especially if you opt for a long sleeved style. You can get turtle neck tops or turtle neck jumpers but either way they are a great staple piece for your wardrobe. Again with these you can dress them up by wearing smart black trousers and a fancy jacket, or you can dress down with a pair of jeans.
