6 Fashion Influencers Just Shared Their Autumn Wish Lists With Me

I just want to kick this off be saying I can't be held accountable for any purchases you may make after reading this. The truth is these influencers will, well, influence you with their autumn wish lists. As someone who has already fallen victim to this (my pal Rachael Clifton has made me want the latest Arket striped jumper), I can confirm it's easy to fall hard for these fresh new-season pieces. To pick out some of the best buys around, I got in touch with some of my influencer friends to see what has caught their eye at the moment.

There's an eclectic mix of aesthetics between these six stylish women, so you can bet they all choose from an array of high-street and designer brands. But one thing I did notice from the items they choose is the colour trend that's set to be huge for autumn: chocolate brown. With everything from knit dresses and trench coats to bags and loafers in this rich shade, I guarantee you'll see it all over Instagram in the coming weeks. So to get ahead, keep scrolling to see what some of the people behind your favourite fashion accounts will be buying for autumn/winter 2022.

1. Renia Jaz

"I love tweed Jackets in a fun bright colour like this red version from Mango. I would wear it with jeans and heels."

"I'm also a fan of over-the-knee boots for autumn, similar to what we saw on the Chanel runway. These kind of boots can make your legs look a lot longer, and that's exactly what I love about them. I would style them with a very long coat or a miniskirt!"

"For autumn, I'll be wearing everything in chocolate brown. I love wearing this colour, and rich, chocolate-y brown is one of my favourite shades. I just brought this beautiful Magda Butrym dress, and I'm planning to wear it with matching brown boots from Jimmy Choo and a brown coat, creating a total look."

"Fo me, it's all about super-big, maximalist jewellery—bracelets and rings—as seen on the catwalks at Dior and Givenchy. The bigger the better. Wear it with short sleeves so everyone can see your beautiful jewellery."

2. Amira Khan

"This Loulou shirt instantly shouts autumn to me. The colour of the shirt is gorgeous! I think overshirts are perfect for layering during the cooler months. Personally, I would layer this under a blazer or a trench coat and pair it with straight-leg jeans and Converse."

"Loafers are a staple to have in your shoe collection, and I can already see them being a massive trend this season. I love the gold buckle detailing on this Flattered style, and they are the perfect chunky pair to suit any outfit you put together. I would style them with a floral dress, a cardigan and white socks to peak through to add a bit of detail."

"You can't do autumn without a trench coat. I love the fit, sizing and detailing on this lovely Aligne trench coat. A trench is a good staple to add to your wardrobe and elevates any look. There are various ways to style this trench, but I'd love to go for a more casual, tailored look by adding tailored trousers, a sweater-vest and loafers."

"Love the silhouette and pinstripe detailing on these trousers. You can easily style these dressed down, or if you want to stick to a more tailored look, these would be perfect with a white tee, trench coat and pair of sneakers."

3. Rachael Clifton

"I've just ordered this brown classic trench from & Other Stories, and I'm so excited to style it for autumn with neutral tones. I also sized up for the perfect oversized look."

"I love a stripe whatever the season, and the boxy fit of this Arket collared, thick stripe knit is perfection."

"11/10 obsessed with this patchwork leather dress by Aligne."

"I've been eyeing up a Dragon Diffusion bag for some time now. It's basically like an autumn/winter version of a basket bag. Naturally, I need one and will be styling it with everything this autumn."

4. Alanna Doherty

"I'm obsessed with all things Kai. In almost every Reel of mine, you'll see me in one of Fisayo's pieces, and this shirt is a gem— perfect for autumn layering!"

"For a splurge-worthy occasion, this dress with a stunning coloured coat draped over your shoulders— magic!"


"This Jacket? Heaven! And there are also matching trousers, so this will be the autumn uniform I'll be wearing on repeat." 

"Dungarees are the ideal autumn staple. Dress them up or down, and they're perfect for those days when the mornings are cold and the afternoons are warm."

5. Karina Marriott

"A knitted dress and trainers is my go-to when the weather gets cooler."

"I 10/10 recommend these trousers if you're a curvy girl like me! I love the relaxed fit, and they can be dressed up or down."

"I live in a shirt-dress during autumn and winter because they're just so versatile. I love how this Rixo style makes a statement on its own, but you can put your personal style on it with a twist, too. 

"I can't wait to get my hands on this new set from Sleeper and pair it with some platforms and a sparkly bag—ready for date nights."

6. Franny Fyne

"These shoes will go perfectly with light-brown tones. They would look good worn with cropped, wide trousers or a slightly puffy long skirt—very Italian '50s style. You could also wear them with a beautiful oversized striped shirt or a simple and ultra-cozy sweater."

"This set clearly calls for comfort with its loose fit. It goes perfectly with cowboy boots, trainers or a pair of moccasins accompanied by a trench coat or a super-oversized blazer. It's guaranteed to be effortlessly chic."

"These pants with a close-fitting wool top and a leather jacket—and voilà. You'll hit the bull's-eye stylistically."

"A minimalistic wool overshirt can be worn with so many outfit options. I would also wear it over an oversized white blouse for a comfy combo."
