8 Autumn Fashion Essentials

I'm someone that declares it's Autumn on the 1st of September - even though Autumn Equinox is three weeks after that. I just love this season. Autumn is full of warm tones, cosiness and crunchy leaves. One of my other favourite things about Autumn is the fashion during this season. Give me all the jumpers, cardigans and boots and I'll wear them. You can never have too many oversized jumpers hanging in your wardrobe!

When I make the transition of Summer into Autumn, there are always going to be what I call 'my Autumn fashion essentials' to see me through the season until, and even into the Winter. Autumn fashion is full of lovely textures, versatility, warmth and it's timeless. 


Now, I'm not going to tell you to go and buy 24 jumpers and say that's your Autumn wardrobe sorted for another year. I like to have the key essentials when it comes to Autumn fashion. I like to have a versatile and more of a capsule wardrobe these days, Autumn is the perfect place to start if you are looking to do the same.

If you're wondering where to start, here are my 8 Autumn fashion essentials -

1) OVERSIZED  JUMPERS

I couldn't start this list without mentioning this item. Oversized jumpers are essential for any Autumn wardrobe. I tend to buy neutral based jumpers - beige, ecru, tan, brown, well, any neutral colour! I also like to have a black jumper, a white jumper and maybe a bright colour just to make an Autumn outfit pop a little. I like to buy the oversized jumper not just for an Autumn fashion essential, but for warmth and cosiness! If oversized jumpers aren't for you, a roll neck jumper is definitely the way to go. A roll neck jumper goes great with shorts, skirts and jeans. 


2) TRENCH  COAT

It wouldn't be Autumn if I didn't have a trench coat in my wardrobe. Trench coats are so versatile, plus if it starts peeing down outside when you're on an Autumnal walk, you won't get too wet! Trench coats look great over dresses, or a top, jeans and boots/flats. Speaking of shoes...

3) BLACK  BOOTS

Whether that be ankle boots, knee-high or thigh boots, I couldn't be without black boots during Autumn. I tend to wear black jeans/leggings during the Autumn, so black boots are essential for me. I don't mind whether the boots are flat or heeled, as long as I have a pair in my wardrobe, I'm sound. 

4) SCARVES

How can you have Autumn without a scarf or two?! I love a tartan scarf, a black scarf and a neutral one too. Not only are scarves good for looking fashionable, but I love them purely for keeping my chest warm when I'm out and about in the colder, wetter weather!

5) TIGHTS

Invest in a good pair of tights - you won't be sorry! I like to opt for the more opaque pair of tights, they definitely keep your legs warmer. I know those Gucci Supreme tights are floating around on Instagram (to be fair, they are gorgeous!) but you can always find a nice pair from any fashion website, or even at your local supermarket! Tights are great with the obvious - skirts, shorts, dresses.

6) LOAFERS  //  MULES

If boots aren't for you, loafers and/or mules are your best friend in Autumn. I love wearing these two kinds of shoes. They're so comfortable and go with so many Autumnal outfits. Some may be unsure of mules as they fear they'll slip off when you walk around town. I find mules very comfortable and thankfully I haven't had that slip-off issue as of yet! You could always buy those anti-slip insoles if you worry about that problem, I have for heels and they do work!

7) LEATHER  TROUSERS  //  LEGGINGS

An oversized jumper with leather trousers or leggings is probably my favourite outfit combo to wear in Autumn. If not, a white shirt, a blouse or roll neck jumper would look great with them too. 

8) WELLIES

Love those Autumnal walks? A pair of wellies to go walking in wouldn't go amiss! The last thing you want is to fall on your arse in the muddy woods in your nicest pair of trainers!

These are my Autumn fashion essentials for every Autumn season that comes and goes. I hope this has helped you with what to have in your wardrobe in this Autumn season! 


I'd love to know if these items would be on your wishlist or any others!

  1. I definitely have most of these on my list of autumn essentials too. Cosy sweaters and jumpers are like my uniform, I’d wear them all year round if I could! One thing I’d love to invest in is a trench coat. I’ve always lusted after them by never purchased one yet. Maybe this year! X
