5 autumn outfit ideas to keep you cosy and chic

A new season is upon us. I can already sense the smell of roasted chestnuts at the entrance of Royal parks and picture the blanket of crunchy fallen leaves on the ground.

I have always had a deep love for autumn and everything it has to offer, from rainy nights in and that nostalgic feeling in the air to slow walks in the park with a steaming coffee glued to my hand. And with this cosy season comes fall fashion.

As soon as I spot a leaf turn gold, I am bringing out oversized cardigans, comfy knitwear, big, checkered scarves and statement boots.

Although it has been unusually warm in London so far in September, it doesn’t stop me from daydreaming and putting together my ideal wardrobe for chilly days.

Confession: my favourite activity while relaxing at night, maybe with a Netflix show on and wrapped up in blankets, is to scroll and save outfit ideas in a fall fashion moodboard. So, you can imagine, the inspiration is overflowing.

Chunky knitwear is top of the list, always. Then, there’s one material that I reach for on almost any occasion, faux leather. Most often than not, a leather jacket (dress, trousers or bag, for example), elevates any outfit and adds an extra layer of edge and interest.

I tend to stick to a neutral colour palette with the random pop of colour from time to time. This season, I am drawn to reds and purples to add contrast and break up a head to toe monochromatic look.

When it comes to footwear, I love all types of boots, from over the knee to ankle boots, smart loafers and chunky trainers.

In terms of what is big this season, satin skirts plus comfy knits is a combo made in heaven, and you can never go wrong with a stylish striped sweater, suit trousers and some classic loafers.

So, here is the edit of five outfit ideas I’ve put together that are perfect for autumn and set to keep you cosy, comfy and chic at the same time.
