With the blink of an eye, it is officially autumn and we can definitely feel a chill in the air. As the leaves begin to change and the days become shorter, it’s time to embrace long autumn walks, cosy pub lunches, pumpkins and fireworks – not to mention the endless outfit ideas and layering opportunities.
Whether you’re updating your wardrobe or simply looking for one or two pieces to update your look from last year, these are the must-have items every girl needs to take her in to autumn/winter.
Just because it’s autumn, it doesn’t mean we can no longer embrace bright colours. This yellow printed long sleeve, tie neck, and drawstring waist is an autumn layering essential. Also available in different prints if you’re not feeling as bold. River Island, £36.
The checked shirt is always an autumn staple. Opt for a smart-casual checked shirt layered over a white tee, or keep things simple and button it up and wear with jeans. Superdry, £44.99.
Add a cool edge to your outfit with these blue ripped jeans. For the perfect laidback look team with a slogan tee and white trainers or stilettos for more dressed up nights. New Look, £28.99.
A staple worth stocking up on, this dark beige ribbed polo-neck jumper goes with just about anything. We love it loosely tucked into a pair of relaxed jeans or a midi skirt of choice. With its boxy fit it’s perfect for those indulgent Sunday roasts. H&M, £19.99.
