Autumn, autumn, autumn. My absolute favourite season. I feel like that chick from Miss Congeniality when I say this but just wearing a light jacket is pure bliss, isn’t it? Not too cold that you’re wrapped up and can’t fit your skinny jeans over your thermal leggings (just me?) but chilly enough to wear a light jumper and a cute jacket. Perfection! Here are five of my top picks from the awesome retailers you can grab student discount with from UNiDAYS. Get ready to style up your autumn...
1. Think pink
It wouldn’t be a blog post written by me if there wasn’t something pink in the mix and this pink cord trucker from Miss Selfridge is ever-ay-thing. Seriously sweet and looks awesome with the matching trousers - I’m still all about a co-ord. It’s also perfect to wear with a stripy t-shirt, slim blue jeans, cute Converse and a backpack for an easy outfit to throw on on the way to a lecture. You’ll be getting compliments about this cutie all day, honey!
2. Wild side
It also wouldn’t be a blog post written by me without something leopard print in it. What can I say? I just love those Pat Butcher vibes. Along the same lines as the pretty pink beauty above this is an absolutely amazing jacket to wear with a simple jeans and tee and gold earrings look. Say hey to the fantastic leopard print Missguided cropped denim jacket which you will love if you’re all about the statement prints this season. Autumn is all about those earthy hues too and this bronze colour is perfect with chunky rust coloured knits or black skinny jeans. Just add crunchy leaves.
3. Bearly there
Bearly, geddit? Sorry. I bought a teddy jacket last winter and oh my days I wore it to death. You will be surprised how often you reach for this fuzzy number and I’m loving this cream version from New Look. Having a bigger coat can really balance out the proportions of an outfit and allows you to rock skinny jeans or skirts and tights on your bottom half if this is your vibe. By having a chunky knit and a larger coat to wrap up in you’ll not only be super cosy, you’ll also be perfectly balanced in the style stakes.
4. Check it out
Clueless, eat your heart out. This is the ultimate 90s vibin’ coat if you’re into that trend and it seriously makes a statement that will turn heads. All you need to complement this awesome Topshop check puffer jacket is a bright bum bag, a high necked thin knit, mom jeans and some of your favourite trainers like Vans Old Skool. This is the ultimate retro-feel outfit that is perfect for long days packet into seminar rooms and dashing between appointments.
5. Fur sure
Eek, the second leopard print thing in this post! Well, it’s a huge trend right now so I am not apologising for this fabulousness. If the denim jacket at the beginning of these picks wasn’t quite warm or leopardy enough for you then I have the answer in the form of this fabulous Boohoo faux fur leopard coat. I mean, who gave this guy permission to be so damn cute? If you need a warm, stylish and slightly longer jacket to take you through the autumn then this is IT! Plus, you can save your purse strings from Freshers bashing and use your UNiDAYS discount to save some pennies.
