Autumn wardrobe staples

Six essential Autumn wardrobe staples

Woolly Hat

Nothing finishes an autumnal outfit quite like the perfect woolly hat. Whether you opt for one with a pom-pom on top, or just a simple coloured style, the woolly hat is a great autumn wardrobe staple. With an all-black outfit the woolly hat can become your statement piece! Opt for something colourful that will take your outfit from basic to exciting. Mustard is a great autumn tone, so opt for a woolly hat in this colour and you will be set for the season.

Fitted Jacket

Just because it is cold out doesn’t mean all structure has to go out of the window. When the weather is chilly we want to wrap up warm, but you can do this while still having some structure in your life. The perfect fitted jacket is essential for your autumn wardrobe, giving you the chance to wrap up warm while still showing off your figure and style. It can be easy to look overwhelmed in your clothing in autumn, but a structured jacket is an easy fix to have you looking stylish and sophisticated. You could even given one of your existing coats a new lease of life by taking it to somewhere like the Alterations Boutique to give it a more flattering fit.

Stylish Scarf

A scarf is one of the best autumn accessories out there. Not only do they give you an added layer of warmth, you can get them in almost any colour and pattern! They are fantastic for adding something extra to your outfit without having to go through too much effort. You can completely transform a basic outfit by throwing on a stylish scarf to finish off your look.

Heeled Boots

Looking for an easy way to create an outfit that works for almost any occasion? Opt for a pair of heeled boots. As the weather gets colder it can be difficult to force yourself out in a less than suitable amount of layers, which is why our accessories are so important. The perfect pair of heeled boots can be worn day or night, for a casual or dressed up look. They can also be worn with almost everything, which is why they are the perfect staple autumnal shoe.

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are perfect almost all year, but they are especially useful during autumn and winter. Wearing skirts and dresses with tights doesn’t keep your legs nearly as warm as jeans do, which is why they are so essential for the colder months. You feel warm and look great at the same time, which is exactly what you need from your autumn wardrobe staples! Stock up on a variety of skinny jeans in different colours and you will be completely set for creating autumn fashion looks.
