With Autumn well and truly upon us, I thought I’d put together a post on 5 Cosy Autumn Outfit Ideas for if you’re looking for a little inspiration for what to wear this fall. I hope you like them …
The first of the 5 outfits I’ve put together would be ideal to wear for lunch with friends, shopping trips or even just for the school run, and I think it looks lovely and sophisticated. It consists of a black textured top from Select, which has 3/4 sleeves with a beautiful crochet detail on them and a pair of plain black jeggings from New Look which have a cute little zip pocket on each side. I then chose a pair of black, high heeled ankle boots from Brantano, which are ruched at the front and have cross straps and buckle trims. They have a lovely, classic look to them, and I think they’d go with lots of different outfits.
Next, I picked out a gorgeous wine coloured coat with contrasting black PU sleeves from a company called SheIn. It has a double lapel and a half zipper, and I think the colour compliments an all-black outfit really well. As it tends to get quite cool during the Autumn months I added a plain black snood in a simple knitted design from Accessorize and a pair of beautiful, fleece lined leather gloves from Gloves on Hand. I have really small, child-like hands and these are one of the only companies I’ve found who actually do gloves in my size. They’re brilliant! And last but not least I thought a black Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac with silver handware and fringing would finish off this look just perfectly. What do you guys think?
During the Autumn months I always wear a lot of browns and beige’s, and the second outfit I’ve put together really pays homage to that. It consists of a simple, yet elegant long sleeved pussybow blouse from Dorothy Perkins, which I teamed with a pair of indigo coloured super skinny jeans and a beige fine knitted cape with a tasseled hem from River Island. I love that the cape has made a comeback this year, as it’s something you can just sort of ‘throw on’ over your outfit and look super stylish in a second.
Many of my friends tell me they’re scared to wear capes though because they have no idea how to style them. My top tips would be to make sure you try one on in store before you commit to buying so you don’t pick one up that’s too big, and steer clear of using a shoulder bag when you wear one. It just looks too fussy. I’d recommend either carrying a stylish clutch or buying one with large pockets at the front so you can stick all your essentials in there and be good to go.
Next, I found a pair of gorgeous brown biker-style ankle boots at Brantano that I thought would look fantastic with the rest of the outfit. They have buckle details at the top of the boot and at the ankle and they zip up at the back, which I think is really cute. They also have a cleated sole, which is perfect for this time of year as they’d give some additional grip when it’s icy outside. And finally I added a gorgeous silver hammered ring necklace from Lily Charmed. I’m really in to hammered jewellery at the moment and this is one of my favourite pieces. I think this outfit would be perfect for the many Christmas shopping trips us ladies like to make at this time of year!
My next Autumn outfit is one I picked out for those lovely, rainy days we have here in the UK, and it would be perfect to wear when you have to walk the dog or pick the kids up from school. When Stacey was at primary school I always found it would start pouring it down with rain a few minutes before I had to head out to pick her up, even if it had been lovely and sunny all day before that!
For this outfit I chose a gorgeous super-soft knitted top in a light grey colour, and paired it with some gorgeous black jeans which were both from Topshop. I then found an absolutely amazing khaki canvas jacket from Quiz which has black PU sleeves and a faux fur hood. It’s very much like the jacket I picked up last year but a little more unique, so I really like it.
I’d recommend wearing wellies if you’re going to be anywhere sludgy, and love this black pair from Brantano as they look more like a regular pair of boots than wellingtons. They feature a small heel and buckle at the top of the boot and I think they’re just fab! And since it’s likely to be really cold if it’s raining I’d add this black faux fur pom pom beanie from Amazon and a pair of cable knit gloves from Accessorize to the outfit for warmth. Brr.
This last week quite a few of you have told me that you enjoy walking, so I thought I’d add an Autumn outfit that would be just perfect for you guys to wear while you’re out and about! I started by picking out a pink Karrimor short sleeved t-shirt from Sports Direct that has a round neck, and then I added a pair of black thick padded trousers for warmth and a matching waterproof jacket which has a foldaway hood for when it’s dry outside.
For footwear I would suggest wearing a pair of special trekking socks to ensure the feet stayed protected, and I love the black boots that I picked out from Brantano. They’re lace up ones that have a fur trim around the top of the boot and a fleecy lining to help keep toes toasty warm. I’d also recommend this pair of thick black alpine gloves from Amazon to keep the cold away from your fingers as well.
And finally, you don’t want to be taking a handbag on a walk with you, so I picked out a black and pink backpack to match the rest of the outfit. I think it looks great and would be sure to keep all of your belongings safe no matter how far you’re walking!
And last but certainly not least I’ve put together a gorgeous outfit that I could definitely see myself wearing if it happened to snow this year! I’d start with this cute light pink marl shirt from H&M as a base layer and team it with a pair of mid-wash denim jeans from Diesel, and a super-cosy duffle gilet from a brand called Fat Face, who I really love at the moment. It has a faux fur hood and is lined inside to keep you nice and warm when you’re wearing it.
On my feet I would wear a cute pair of grey ankle boots from Skechers, which have a sock-like ankle part with buckle fastening. They’re really unique and I don’t think I’ve ever come across anything like them when I’ve been out shoe shopping before. I’d probably add a pair of Yaktrax to the bottom of the boots though as I have a back problem called scoliosis, and often find it difficult to stand upright when it’s snowy or icy outside. Yaktrax aid me by gripping onto the ice and snow underfoot and stops me from toppling over. I love them and wouldn’t be without mine nowadays. It’s so nice not to have to stay indoors when everyone else is out having fun!
On my hands I would wear a pair of grey cable knit gloves from Accessorize (can you tell I’m loving the cable knits this year?) and I’d just have to rock a pair of cute grey earmuffs! The ones in the image I created above are from KitSound, and they can connect to your iPod, smartphone or MP3 player so you can listen to your music while looking super stylish at the same time … how cool is that?! And finally, I would carry this gorgeous satchel handbag in a light grey faux-suede that I found it in River Island.
