A change of season is the perfect time for a wardrobe reset—and that doesn't just mean buying lots of new things. The ideal autumn capsule wardrobe includes classics we revisit every year, such as buttery leather ankle boots, trench coats and knitwear, with small tweaks to make these classics feel updated. There are 11 items for autumn that are worth considering if you're looking to make any new-season investments.
The change of season brings with it cosy knits, leather separates and woolen coats that are slowly taking over new-in sections. We find that autumn is the perfect time to step back and really think about what's worth buying and what slots into your existing cold-weather wardrobe.

1. Leather Separates
2. Statement Trench Coat
We can expect to see trenches with a fashion edge this autumn.
3. Chain Necklace
A small wardrobe update for 2020 is a choker necklace—preferably a chunky gold chain.
4. Pleated Skirt
6. Brown Jumper
The chicest knitwear we've seen in the autumn collections so far are chunky, ribbed wool jumpers in oatmeal and coffee colours.
7. Knitted Vest
Knitted vests are going to be a key item this autumn thanks to brands such as Dior and Gucci. We love how they look layered over a white shirt.
9. Colourful Checks
Checks are always a hero item for autumn, and this year, lots of brands such as Miu Miu and Stella McCartney have played with bold, colourful checks.
10. Leather Blazer
When it comes to outerwear, leather blazers and coats will dominate this autumn. We love the below jacket from & Other Stories.
