It’s the most wonderful time of the year~ according to that song, and the fact that Autumn seems to be catnip to bloggers. It’s time to refresh wardrobes, dig out the fluffy scarves, the jumpers and the chunky knit cardigans. Stomp crunchy leaves in wellies and lose all the gloves.
New seasons bring new inspiration. I love looking at pretty autumn outfits to get inspiration in how to style my own wardrobe for the turn in weather, so I thought I’d share some of my outfit ‘moodboards’ and hope that they might inspire you too.
my absolute no.1 for autumn/winter is the chunky knit jumper or cardigan. so cosy. so warm. so versatile. i love how they can be tucked into skirts and jeans or left so you can snuggle in all their glory.
I’m also super happy that pinafores and dungarees are still trending. I love them in general, they’ll always be a staple of my personal style, but it’s nice to be able to walk into shops and try on so many types and styles. Especially when it comes to full length trouser dungarees, finding that perfect pair means many, many sessions in the changing rooms.
Another massive autumn/fall-into-winter staple to style is the boot. Be it ankle, knee-high, over-knee, heeled, flat, platform, cleated sole. Thankfully, everyone else is pretty into boots in winter, so there’s tonnes of lasses and lads out there showing off how they style theirs. Also, I’m really quite stoked to see the see-through rainboots/doc knock offs making headway in the fashion world. They’re really cute, and can really add something special to an outfit you don’t quite know how to make pop.
Usually I’m more excited for summer fashion, but something this year has flipped a switch and suddenly I’m all for layers and boots and socks and Winter Is Coming. Maybe it’s the fact I don’t have to education anymore.
Let me know what you think of these inspiration boards? What do you use for outfit inspiration when the seasons turn? And what is your favourite item to wear during autumn?
