Autumn is officially here, and it’s time to do some seriously savvy shopping. So we’ve drawn up ten items that you should have on your autumn fashion wish list. Invest in these key fashion wish list pieces after the lockdown and you’ll beef up your new season collection, without breaking the bank.
The best way to save money is knowing which fashion items are essential and will help you transition your summer clothing into autumn friendly outfits. A pair of colourful opaque tights will brighten up a plain grey jersey dress, while a khaki water-resistant coat will work with any colour jeans or dress. These ten items are all you need this autumn.
The stand out boots for the year has to be the retro style chunky boots. Inspired by 90’s grunge, this boot can be a little intimidating for the everyday buyer. But it’s super comfy and actually goes with everything from dress to jeans.
A stylish jersey dress is perfect for autumn. Light enough for warmer days, and perfect for layering with biker jackets and coats for chillier days. This dress is definitely one to consider for your fashion wish list.
Whether you go for a cool print, a puff sleeve design or even an exaggerated roll neck. Make sure to add a cool and unique sweater to your fashion wish list. This striped version from MRP is super cute and is budget-friendly too.
Leather pants are the new leggings. Comfy and chic all in one. And unlike leggings, you don’t have to worry about wearing these with a bag top to look appropriate. Wear them with a simple tank top for warmer days, and then throw on a chunky knit for when it gets colder.
Hear me out… Autumn fashion is all about layering. Being able to add and remove items of clothing to your outfit as the day heats up or cools down. A flattering floral dress is perfect for that. It looks great worn on its own or layered with a gilet. If you choose to buy a sleeveless version, you can even layer a thin knit under it with ankle boots. Either way, a floral dress deserves a place in your autumn fashion wish list.
Accessories in the cooler months are just as essential as in the warmer months. An over-sized scarf is a great fashion statement in itself. Wear it with a simple all-black outfit (black jeans and a long-sleeved top) to instantly take your look from fine to fabulous.
How cute are these opaque burgundy stockings? They are sure to jazz up a mini skirt and brighten your day. Nothing beats a pair of dual-purpose stockings. Keeping you warm as you wear your summer dresses in the colder months, and they come in a multitude of colours and prints.
Looking cute during rainy weather can be frustrating. That’s why we suggest you add a stylish raincoat to your autumn fashion wish list. The trendy khaki colour will also work with any outfit and colour.
Perfect both a bad and good hair day, a cool wide-brimmed hat will amp up the style factor of any outfit.
Don’t be intimidated by long boots. This version from Rage has an elasticated back to accommodate for any size calf, so you’ll be comfortable wearing these all day. Draw them over your jeans to elongate your legs, or wear them under skirts for a boho feel outfit. Long boots tend to be a little pricier, so this pair should also make it onto your fashion wish list.
