My Favourite Autumn Outfit Takes 30 Seconds to Style

In my book, any outfit that takes less than 30 seconds to style is a total miracle. Last winter, it was the boilersuit, and this summer, it was the throw-on-and-go dress (aka Zara's polka-dot midi), but for autumn, we only have eyes for the slip skirt and jumper. Offering just the right amount of polish (via the slip's satin fabric) alongside a good dose of cosy, autumn-ready comfort (thanks to the chunky knit), this outfit formula can do no wrong. It's also versatile enough to be dressed up with knee-high boots, as well as adapted for the weekend with chunky trainers.

This is such a simple look to put together, and it's more about personal taste rather than achieving a picture-perfect pairing. The fashion crowd have loved embracing tonal colourways, and in our opinion, it's the easiest way to work the trend. Beiges and creams are a good way to go, as are wintery forest greens and blacks, but if you want a little more impact then try a colour clash or print with a Fair Isle jumper à la Erika Boldrin. Trust us—try this outfit formula this weekend and you won't look back. Scroll down to see and shop our favourite slip skirt–and-jumper outfits. Happy shopping.

Style Notes: You can't really go wrong with a head-to-toe black look à la Sylvie Mus. A simple crew-neck jumper and calf-grazing midi will do the job nicely. It is a fashion-editor staple for a reason.

2. Fair Isle Knit + Colour-Match Slip Skirt

Style Notes: Fair Isle knits are everywhere this season, and a slinky slip skirt offers the perfect foil to its chunky silhouette.

Style Notes: Going tonal is one of our favourite ways to work the trend. Beiges, browns and creams offer a very premium Rosie HW vibe and are great for autumn. 

4. Colour Clash Cardi + Slip Skirt

Style Notes: Not a fan of all the minimalist getups proliferating right now? A slip skirt and jumper lends itself to colour clashing. Just make sure you keep prints out of the equation.

5. Long Knitted Cardi + Maxi Slip Skirt

Style Notes: The longline cardi is bringing '90s appeal to wardrobes everywhere this season and is an unusual alternative to a crew-neck knit. For an evening out, layer one over a maxi slip skirt and add platform heels.

6. Chunky Colour-Pop Cardigan + Neutral Slip

Style Notes: Okay, I know this is technically not a skirt, but if you've got a slip dress left over from the summer, you can re-create the same effect by layering it under a chunky jumper or cardigan, as seen on Lucy Williams.
