I Just Assembled 6 Chic Outfits That Make Me Really Excited for Autumn

If there’s one brand I love shopping for autumn, it’s Arket. While other affordable destinations can easily pander to of-the-moment trends when a new season arrives, Arket always stays true to what it’s good at and leans into the classics—and I’d argue that there’s no better season to invest in classics than autumn.

Think tailored blazers with jeans and loafers, chic trench coats paired with crisp white shirts and wide-leg trousers, and midi dresses with knee-high boots. That perfect not-too-hot, not-too-cold autumn weather lends itself perfectly to a lightly layered outfit, which, after a summer of navigating a lot of skin on show, feels wholly fresh in itself. And it’s certainly anything but boring.

Now, I know we’re still in the midst of August, and for some of you, that means the summer holidays are still top of mind. But September is a mere 26 days away, and no matter how warm it is outside, the new collections are coming in thick and fast, and they're feeling significantly more fall-appropriate, so bare with me. When scrolling through Arket’s new-in section recently, I saw so many great autumn pieces that I ended up getting a little over-excited and assembling them into five chic outfits to have in my inspiration bank. But I know I’ll wear these pieces through winter with a coat, and I’ll even wear them next autumn. Keep scrolling to see the looks I created. Of course, I’ve added links to shop the pieces if you’re in the mood to get prepared, too.
