13 Easy Outfits We're Wearing on Rotation This Autumn

There's no denying that autumn is on the way, so we thought it might be useful to bring these outfits to your attention. With ensembles this strong, we'll be applying these autumn dressing principles to see us through the cooler temps we'll inevitably experience over the next few months.

Autumn days can require quite a bit of outfit planning. Jacket or no jacket? How many layers are too many layers? Although it might seem pessimistic, this is actually the perfect moment to take a pause and really think about what you'll wear when the weather truly turns.

The below outfits include several classics that you'd typically expect from a British capsule wardrobe, including trench coats, leather jackets and jeans, alongside some new additions that feel really relevant for the season ahead. Think any-terrain boots worn with puff-sleeve dresses, '70s-style fringed suede jackets, and pleated skirts that look amazing when worn with blazers.

Keep scrolling to see and shop 14 of our favourite autumn outfits to inspire your wares for the foreseeable. 

1. Black Blazer + Grey Trousers + Trainers

Style Notes: This outfit strikes the perfect balance between relaxed and smart thanks to the oversized silhouettes and Converse.

Shop the Look:

A wardrobe staple you'll wear for years and years. 

COS is known for its next-level basics. 

The trousers no one will believe came from the high street. 

Fashion people have been wearing Converse nonstop lately. 

2. Cardigan + Midi Skirt + Chunky Boots

Style Notes: We love how this suede midi skirt looks with a pair of chunky boots—an outfit you can easily copy and paste for outdoor pursuits. 

3. Tank Top + Jeans + Bomber Jacket

Style Notes: While a tank top and jeans might be a simple summer go-to, the addition of an on-trend bomber jacket instantly makes this outfit autumn 2023-worthy. 

Shop the Look:

Another hot-ticket item from Mango that influencers can't get enough of. 

These throwback-style jeans come in an array of sizes. 

4. Jacket + Skirt + Socks + Flats

Autumn Outfits: A checked skirt and ballet flats



Style Notes: Ballet flats are having a resurgence this season, but, let's face it, they're not the warmest footwear option on the market. Get savvy like Olivia and style yours with socks for a cute preppy look. 

5. Cardigan + Jeans

Autumn Outfit Ideas: Short sleeve cardigan and jeans



Style Notes: A cardigan is a great option for cooler days where you just don't know what to wear. Style it with jeans and ankle boots for a look you can rely on for casual work settings and low-key weekends. 

Shop the Look:

There's no faster way to brighten an ensemble with a jolt of yellow. 

6. Midi Dress + Flat Ankle Boots

Style Notes: Breathe new life into your summer dresses by adding on-trend cowboy boots. Great for those pesky downpours. 

Shop the Look:

No need to size up—this is already incredibly oversized. 

Proof checkerboard motifs are still going strong. 

Boots don't get much bolder than this. 

7. Blazer + Jeans + Trainers

Autumn outfits: checked blazer and jeans as seen on Emma Hill



Style Notes: There's nothing as simply chic as a blazer thrown on over straight-leg jeans and a white T-shirt. Pair with trainers. 

Shop the Look:

A collarless jacket might seem like a subtle change from single breasted, but it'll completely change the mood of your outfits. 

The t-shirt every editor on our team owns. 

We rate this incredible fit from Boden. 

8. White Top + Baggy Trousers

Style Notes: We're very into barrel-leg trousers right now. Opt for a khaki pair like Lucy Williams's, and throw on a long-sleeve shirred top for a cool take on a Gen Z trend.

Shop the Look:

I can see the shirred top making a comeback.

This shade of green goes with just about every colour. Orange? Yep. Pink? Uh-huh. Blue? You know it... 

Arket's handbag department is so underrated. 

9. Suede Jacket + Midi Dress

Autumn outfits: Rixo printed slip dress and fringe suede jacket



Style Notes: Wear the printed midi dresses you've lived in all summer with a suede jacket with '70s fringing. 

Shop the Look:

This cropped version will look great styled with high-waist trousers and jeans. 

This minimal take on floral prints is easy to carry with you into autumn. 

The perfect finishing touch to any outfit. 

10. Statement Trench + Jeans

Style Notes: Statement trench coats have been big news for several seasons, and they always trace back to this JW Anderson beauty. Pair one similar with a T-shirt, jeans and ankle boots. 

Shop the Look:

A great jumper that goes with everything.

These have just the right amount of stretch in them to make them comfortable for all-day wear. 

11. Pleated Skirt + Shacket

Style Notes: One of our favourite trends is pleated skirts, which look amazing styled with either a blazer or a shacket. 

Shop the Look:

This was made to be worn over a stripe top. 

Don't these look designer? So impressive. 

12. Knit Dress + Leather Jacket

Autumn outfits; leather jacket and knitted skirt



Style Notes: Knitted dresses and skirts are always a key buy, and we love how Sylvie Mus pairs her ivory ribbed knit with an oversized leather jacket and black mules. 

Shop the Look:

Avoid faux leather with overly shiny finishes if you want them to look like the real deal. 

H&M has some of the best knitted dresses on the high street this season. 

13. Vinyl Coat + Co-Ord

Autumn outfits; vinyl coat and silky-fabric co-ords



Style Notes: Give your lightweight co-ords some reinforcement with vinyl outerwear, which will also help shield you from any downpours that happen during the season. 

Shop the Look:

Layer a hoodie underneath for a cool, London girl-vibe. 

The perfect jumper and trouser co-ord. 

Every outfit can be improved with a pair of Jimmy Choos.
