A change of season is the perfect time for a wardrobe restyle.
The ideal autumn capsule wardrobe should include your favourite classics such as knitwear, skinny jeans and ankle boots with small tweaks to make these classics feel updated.
I’ve put together a list of 10 items for autumn that will mix and match perfectly together to create super stylish outfits for the upcoming season. The items below are hero items that all of autumn can centre around, whether it’s a knitted top or a pair of chunky boots.
1. A Leather skirt
A leather skirt is a great alternative to jeans for those girly days or night outs. It will look equally chic with strappy sandals as it will with leather boots. Choose a midi A-line style in a lighter colour for more versatility.
2. Statement Overcoat
This is the part where most other blogs would recommend a trench coat. Whilst trench coats are great for Autumn, they’re not for everyone. If you find that most trench coats either drain you (the camel colour doesn’t always work for everyone’s colouring) or you look bigger than you are in one (sometimes the double breasted style just ISN’T flattering!), a long lightweight overcoat in a more fluid fabric may be a better option for you. You’ll feel much more comfortable and look the part, with very little effort.
3. Knit Jumper
A knit jumper is a key piece for your Autumn wardrobe. Opt for a good quality jumper in a fabric that works for you and one that will stand the test of time.
4. A Ribbed Top
Great for pairing with high waisted skirts or trousers. Ribbed tops are also great for layering under a knitted vest or blazer.
5. A Knit Dress
This is my go-to when I don’t have time to put a decent outfit together. It will score you some style points whilst keeping you warm and cozy!
6. Cropped Straight Leg Jeans
If you want a break from skinny jeans, cropped straight leg jeans (or Mom jeans) are a great choice! They look great when worn with slim fit boots or trainers alike.
7. A Knitted Vest
You can layer a knitted vest over almost anything from shirts, to dresses and jumpsuits. A knitted vest is the perfect way to prolong the use of your summer pieces. A great item to add to your capsule wardrobe!
8. Sock Boots
If you’ve followed my work for a while, you’ll know that I LOVE sock boots. They’ll work with literally any outfit in your wardrobe and look super chic! Although they’re not practical for a rainy day, they are a great alternative to sandals and courts for wearing on an evening out or to an event.
9. Stylish Wellies
If you – like me – live in the countryside or somewhere where you can walk most places, you’ll need these for the rainy days when you still need to do the school run or post that urgent parcel at your local post office. You want to feel great in your clothes regardless of the weather!Buy Similar
10. A Fedora Hat
A fedora hat is a polished way to top off any outfit no matter the season, but it works particularly well in Autumn. Wear it with everything from a silk shirt, knitted vest and jeans to a printed day dress and overcoat.
I hope this list gives you a few ideas, and helps you create your perfect capsule wardrobe for Autumn.
