Autumn Essentials

It's jumper seasoooooooon wooohooooooooo (although saying that I've been trying to wear them since the beginning of September). Thought I'd do a little fashion post, as autumn is by far my favourite season for clothing. So here are what I'd consider my autumn essentials.


Autumn/Winter is all about the cosy knitwear for me, and jumpers are my no. 1 favourite item of clothing (ever). Below are some of my favourites, old and new. I really love the leafy orange and mustard colours and always feel completely at one with the season when I wear them. The high/turtle neck is something I also love; they're perfect for avoiding the dreaded cold neck, especially if you've forgotten to take a scarf out with you.

Black Ankle Boots

Shoe wise, my staple for autumn/winter (/all year round) is a good pair of black ankle boots... or three (I think I actually have four or five lol). Below are my absolute favourites, as I'm sure you can tell by how well-loved they look. Perfect for rainy days, crisp walks, and day-to-day wear.

The weather can be unpredictable at all times of the year in England, but in autumn in particular the temperature tends to go up and down rather a lot. As a result, it's always handy to have a few jackets and coats of different thicknesses. On chillier days I'll grab my ASOS parka, which has a nice fleecy lining and a giant hood to help keep my neck warm. For very mild days, I love this light khaki jacket from Urban Outfitters; it's also the perfect jacket for spring, so nice and versatile. My current favourite is a denim bomber jacket from Monki (which took months to get a hold of). It's the perfect middle-of-the-road thickness and works with pretty much any outfit.

There's great power in even the smallest of accessories. Here I've got a few very appropriate ones for both the cold weather and the stress of uni, as most of the uni year is during autumn/winter. My favourite online store in the whole world is, and two of these three items are from there. I cannot get enough of Polly's designs and have a nice selection of her other products too, but these are two of my most recent favourites. My watch is a beautiful Daniel Wellington model and I've adored it ever since I first got it; it's a very classic design and always handy for keeping track of time.

Another autumn essential is soup, but I could go on about that for far too long.

What are your fashion staples for autumn? I've love to know what your favourite things to wear are.

Until next time.
