Deciding what to wear is almost always a gruelling task. Then throw autumn in the mix; somehow you’re trying to make your outfit work for the crisp, cold morning and warm-ish afternoon sun. So to try and take away some of that pain, here are 10 items you need in your wardrobe pronto…

1. A lightweight jacket

The forever fluctuating fall weather means everyone needs a light jacket to easily throw on and off.  Denim jackets or blazers are a great option for this.

2. Paperbag trousers

Cinching in at the waist, this trend serves as a figure flattering piece. But with them being baggy elsewhere, all your comfort needs are fulfilled. Mourning summer and reluctantly packing your shorts away is made that bit easier with these trousers.


3. Black boots

Slip them on with any outfit and you’re ready to step out the door. Lately sock boots have been a favoured choice by people – after all, they are leg accentuating and keep your ankles toasty.

4. Tights

It’s time to hit the high street and bulk buy tights again – goose-bump coated, purple legs are never a good look. Hit up Primark ASAP.

5. A cardigan

Cardis keep things looking casual and are easy to carry around when the sun makes an entrance. Style a skirt, cardigain and tights together and you can never go wrong.


6. A cropped woollen jumper

Autumn weather isn’t quite cold enough for jumpers that completely engulf your whole being, so cropped ones are the way to go. Looking to style your summer jumpsuits in fall? Just stick one of these over the top.

7. Trainers

Comfy and go with almost anything. Converse, Old Skool Vans and adidas Gazelles are particularly popular right now.

7. Hoop earrings

Sadly, they’re not going to do much to combat the chilly mornings but they do make you feel fancy.

8. Kitten heels

Making a comeback this year, these classy yet comfy (thanks to their petite heel) shoes will carry your outfit from day to night this autumn.

9. Dungarees

Stylish? Check. Versatile? Check. Keep your legs warm? Check. Easy to go to the bathroom in? Maybe not… but let’s disregard that.

10. A berry lipstick

Brighten up the foggy mornings with a pop of colour. Charlotte Tilbury’s matte-lip shade in Glastonberry is a necessity.
