What will you be wearing this Autumn? Posted On 08 October 2018

When you think of Autumn, what springs to mind? Hot drinks, falling leaves, lots of colour and conkers? Well, Autumn is just around the corner which means it will be time to put our summer clothes away and get out our ‘in-between’ clothes before we need our winter woollies!

Given the very hot summer we have had this year, Autumn may well feel cooler than usual. So, what are the must-have clothing items for this season?

Autumn is the time of year for jumpers, hats and boots. These items of clothing are essential for the season to keep us warm! Other clothing items to look at are long sleeve dresses, long cardigans and leggings.

 

Layering

Autumn can see temperatures vary, so layering is a good way to go about keeping warmer during the day. Layer up with a t-shirt, jumper and jacket then take off and add layers when the temperature changes throughout the day. You may often find in the middle of the day, you won’t need a lot of layers, so you can stick with just a t-shirt and jumper.

A big trend this year is ‘extreme layering’. Fashion moguls are layering their models up with six or seven big jackets, coats and blanket ponchos. This probably is a little extreme, so why not wear a thinner jacket in a contrasting colour underneath your coat?

Footwear

We also need to think about keeping our feet warm and dry! Slouch boots are making a comeback this season, and there are lots out there in those must-have autumn shades. These boots from Next, priced at £66, are a great buy and come in a variety of shades www.next.co.uk.

There is a great range of boots available for adults and children right now; waterproof, stylish and great for comfort. Everything from wellies, to leather boots and waterproof trainers – all are great for this season. These wellies from www.hunterboots.com are priced at £115 and are in-keeping with the Autumn colours and the inevitable British weather that is set to come!

Browns, golds and oranges

This season, we can’t forget about all those gorgeous autumnal shades; golds, browns, burnt oranges. There is so much of the brown shades around, ready for this season, that you’ll be spoilt for choice. We love this men’s rust jumper from www.next.co.uk; it’s great for these up and coming autumn months and costs £22.

Coats, jackets, hats and boots all look great in shades of brown and there are a large number of ranges in these colours in shops right now – perfect if you are wanting to update your autumn collections. Pair burnt orange or yellow shirts or jumpers with blue jeans and boots for extra comfort.

The beauty of brown is that it pretty much goes with every colour! There are plenty of long coats, jackets and jumpers available ready for the season to start, just like this women’s long brown coat from www.newlook.co.uk priced at £34.99

Accessorise!

When the autumn rain comes, we need to be prepared with some waterproof clothing and accessories! Animal prints are going to be a popular element this season, so keep yourself dry with animal print umbrellas, like this bubble one from www.hunterboots.com at £45, or waterproof coats.

There are also a vast range of hats and gloves around ready for the season. The best accessories in the autumn are thinner, woolly beanie-style hats or berets to keep your head feeling warm, without overheating. Gloves are also a great accessory for autumn. Go for red or blue leather gloves to brighten up your wardrobe! Match your hats and gloves with a scarf so you can really wrap up warm on those colder nights when you’re out walking the dog, or just going for a leisurely evening stroll.

Hoods are also a great accessory for the autumn season. Keep children warm with hooded jackets and sweatshirts. We found a girl’s ochre hooded coat, £28, and a boy’s brown coat, £18, both from www.matalan. co.uk which are perfect for this! If they won’t wear a hat or carry an umbrella, at least you can pop their hood up for them to keep them dry if you’re out and about when the showers come. Plus, a hood will save carrying those extra accessories around!

Checks

Checked clothes are big this season, taking over the popular pinstripes and floral prints we have had during the summer months. Checks are adaptable to everyone; ladies, men, children – even our pets!

With this in mind, checked jackets would be a great purchase. Choose one that’s not too thick, so that it will be perfect for the cooler days too. Wear it with your favourite pair of jeans and boots for that perfect outfit! This ladies’ jacket from www2.hm.com is £34.99 and is great for all occasions; work, days out, nights out and even special occasions!

Checked shirts and jumpers are also a great buy. Long sleeves and a high neck will help keep the chills away and keep everyone warm! Pair them together for the right amount of warmth for the season. This children’s shirt from www.sainsburys.co.uk will keep your children warm for just £9.
