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
"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."
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."

"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!"

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."
