Autumn outfits can require quite a bit of planning. Coat or no coat? How many layers are too many layers? The below outfit ideas will see you through cooler days over the next few months. As stock is switching over from linen dresses and sandals to knitwear and trench coats this is the perfect moment to take a pause and really think about what is missing from your autumn wardrobe before you start adding to it.
The below outfits include several classics that you'd typically expect from an autumn capsule, including trench coats, leather jackets and jeans, alongside some new additions which feel really relevant this autumn. Think Mary Janes worn with ankle socks, '70s-style fringed suede jackets and pleated skirts that look amazing when worn with blazers. Keep scrolling to see and shop twelve of our favourite autumn outfits.
1. Black Blazer + Grey Trousers + Converse
Style Notes: This outfit strikes the perfect balance between relaxed and smart, thanks to the oversized silhouettes and Converse.
2. Fine Cardigan + Suede Skirt + Chunky Boots
Style Notes: We love how this suede midi skirt looks with a pair of chunky Bottega Veneta boots.
3. Tank Top + Jeans + Puffer Jacket
Style Notes: While a tank top and jeans might be a simple summer go-to, the addition of a cropped puffer instantly makes this outfit autumn worthy.
5. Short Sleeve Cardigan + Jeans
Style Notes: A short sleeve cardigan is a great option for cooler summer-days and will become a key part of your wardrobe come autumn. Pair with jeans and sandals for a look that will work for either season.
6. Long Sleeved Blouse + High-Waisted Trousers
Style Notes: Experiment with autumnal colours as well as longer sleeves and high-waisted trousers for a current look.
7. Blazer + Jeans + Heeled Ballet Pumps
Style Notes: There's nothing easier to wear than a checked blazer thrown on over straight-leg jeans and a white T-shirt. Keep the look as autumn-friendly as possible by adding a pair of ballet pumps.
Style Notes: On cooler days, layer your dress over a pair of leather trousers. Provided it's not pouring, you can also get another wear out of your strappy sandals and match them with your favourite summer bag.
9. Slip Skirt + Denim Jacket + Biker Boots
Style Notes: This slip-skirt–and–biker-boots combination is one we guarantee you'll see over and over this autumn. Take a tip from Lucy Williams and wear yours with a denim jacket and a white T-shirt.
10. Suede Jacket + Slip Dress
Style Notes: Wear your printed slip dresses that you've liven in all summer with a suede jacket with '70s fringing.
11. Statement Trench + Jeans
Style Notes: Statement trench coats have been big news for several seasons thanks to this JW Anderson beauty. Pair with a T-shirt, jeans and ankle boots.
Style Notes: One of our favourite trends for autumn is pleated skirts, which look amazing styled with either a blazer or a shacket.
13. Knit Dress + Leather Jacket
Style Notes: Knitted dresses and skirts are always a key buy for autumn, and we love how Sylvie pairs her ivory ribbed knit with an oversized leather jacket and black mules.
