Layer it on
Autumn can be a tricky season to dress for. One minute it’s practically freezing, the next we’re back up to 70 degrees an hour later. To help you transition through autumn and into the colder months, I’ve lined up 5 ways you can nail your autumn wardrobe, keeping warm while looking effortlessly cool.
Layering is key
The key to managing your temperature in tricky weather is to make your outfit fashionable AND functional. By opting for multiple layers, you can easily add or remove pieces throughout the day as the temperature rises. Plus, this gives you so many different options for your look, if you decide by 10am that you hate part of the outfit.
Autumn can be a nightmare for sneakers. The falling leaves, wet ground, and mud can only be withstood by good pair of boots. Opting for something you can wear day to day is key and laced boots with a chunky sole such as this pair from Frye will look great with your autumn layers.
Get a waterproof jacket
If there’s one thing we can rely on in the fall, it’s a random shower at the most inconvenient time. Rain jackets like this lightweight number from ASOS are ideal for carrying around while being prepared. You can store them away when not needed, grabbing them out in a hurry when the heavens start to open.
Set the tone
One of the things I love most about autumn are the different colors and the warmth they bring to an outfit. Opting for reds, mustard yellows and browns is a surefire way to add that autumnal feeling to an outfit. Pair these with chunky materials like fleece and you’re onto a winner.
It’s in the bag
A good bag is the key to surviving the transitional weather. If you’ve already started layering up, having somewhere to store those extra layers of clothing is a must. You will also likely need an umbrella and potentially some of your favorite grooming products such as deodorant and hair gel. Styles such as this classic Fjall Raven backpack from Asos are the perfect size and an ideal way to tie an outfit together.
