9 Instagram Outfits I Plan on Copying This Month

Dressing for autumn is one of our favourite sartorial endeavours. Cosy knitwear, leather separates and chic boots are things we've been looking forward to wearing for the past few months. So now that October is upon us, it's high time we started assembling the outfits we'll wear for the season ahead. After trawling through the Instagram accounts of our favourite influencers, we managed to come up with nine key looks that are ideal for any sort of weather October might throw at us.

From the ultimate cool coat needed for chilly mornings to the summer dress you can wear right through until spring, there are plenty of outfit ideas you'll want to copy immediately. Without further ado, this is what to wear in October.

1. COAT + WIDE-LEG TROUSERS

Style Notes: Wide-leg trousers were the It buy of summer, so carry them with you into the new season by pairing them with a roll-neck knit and a chic coat. If in doubt, simply follow Abi Omole’s flawless lead. 

2. CARDI + MINISKIRT + KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

Style Notes: The last days of bare-leg season are upon us, so make the most of them by pairing a miniskirt with a fluffy knit. Simply add tights when you can't withstand the chill any longer. 

3. PUFFER JACKET + SQUARE-TOE BOOTS

Style Notes: Puffer jackets are—some would say—imperative when temperatures drop. Handily, Tiffany Hsu has found the most on-trend way to wear them: with a belt bag and square-toe boots.

Style Notes: Jeans might be the first thing you reach for at the moment, but that doesn't mean you need to completely forgo skirts. Instead, take cues from Sylvie Mus and pair a denim midi with a jean shirt and finish with white boots. 

5. SHACKET + JEANS

Style Notes: Shackets have been on the rise for a few seasons now. This autumn, we'll be wearing ours like Aïda Sané of Basics Touch did by pairing one alongside straight-leg jeans and neutral heels.

Style Notes: One of the best bits about getting dressed for autumn is the gorgeous texture pairings you can create within your look. Wool and silk are so premium when worn together. 

7. VIBRANT KNIT + CHECK TROUSERS

Style Notes: There's nothing like a vibrant knit to brighten up a cloudy October day. This season, we're elevating the typical jumper-and-jeans look by pairing our favourite knits alongside printed trousers instead.

Style Notes: Your floral dresses needn't be relegated to the back of your wardrobe until spring. At this time of year, we advise wearing them with slouchy wool blazers and closed-toe shoes. 

9. BLOUSE + ROLL-NECK + JEANS

Style Notes: Blouses can often feel threadbare once the autumn weather sets in. Make yours work for the lower temperatures by layering a thin roll-neck underneath it.
