There is something I just love about clothes in Autumn time. I mean, what’s not to love about cosy layering as the days get shorter and we start slowing heading towards the you-know-what C-word? With that said, today I’ve teamed up with UK Tights for this post about Autumn style essentials. Plus there’s a chance to win a £50 gift card to spend on tights and leggings across their range. So here we go, these are the Autumn style essentials you need over the coming weeks.
A printed dress
Just because it’s getting colder, doesn’t mean you need to put your frocks away. Dark floral dresses are where it’s at this Autumn and they can be layered up perfectly with jumpers, coats and tights. I’m currently obsessing over River Island’s Black Sienna Dress.
Some awesome tights
Tights are big news this season, although to be honest every Autumn I spend a large amount of time living in them. They are great to keep legs nice and toasty when paired with a jumper dress or to add a bit of flair with a more adventurous print. UK tights have an amazing selection of tights to choose from (as well as leggings I might add). I am currently obsessed with Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights and the Trasparenze Jennifer Merino Wool Tights range.
A pair of ankle boots
Yes, I know everyone might be raving about over the knee boots, but it’s a bit early for that in my book. A pair of cool ankle boots work perfectly for Autumn. If they can have a pair of animal print of them then so much the better – think cow, snake or leopard. I’ve just picked up a pair of super comfy but very stylee leopard print boots from Clarkes and they are a great way of jazzing up a seemingly ordinary Autumn outfit.
A classic jumper
You know it, I know it. A classic jumper is where it’s at over Autumn. The cosier, the better! Think lighter jumpers which are perfect for a spot of layering and can be whipped off whenever needed.
A go-with-everything coat
You know the one I mean – you’ve probably had it for a few years already because it just fits the bill every time. For the days when you don’t feel like being a walking teddy or fur ball with your teddy or fur coat, a simple and stylish coat will never let you down. I always love H&M for all things coats.
A padded headband
My absolute favourite for greasy hair days, padded headbands are hot news this Autumn. For busy mums like us, they’re a perfect way of looking like we’ve still got our fingers on the fashion pulse without making much effort. As well as for covering up greasy hair on the school run! If you’re hankering after some extra length or volume to your hair you could also consider adding in a sneaky ponytail hair extension.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a beanie. But we can’t spend the whole Autumn in a beanie…can we? For a sharper look, be bold and brave a beret. The revolutionary accessory is key this season!
