Good morning, so Autumn is coming around super quick and I’ve been trying to get my Autumn basics sorted as it’s got so cold recently and I absolutely love Autumn, its my favourite season so I was super excited about starting my Autumn posts. I thought I would put together a basics list as it may be useful for anyone who hasn’t got their basics under wraps. I’ll link some similar items at the end of this post if your looking to get any of these items.
Black Chelsea boots & tie up boots
Boots, probably my favourite thing to purchase when it starts to become colder. I’ve accumulated quite a few pairs over the years and I definitely have a favourite. I love black heeled boots and I got some from Primark a year ago and they tie up in the front and I love them, I can’t wait to incorporate them into my outfits more. The best places for heeled boots would probably be Primark and they do some really good ones in Shoe Zone which I’d recommend. I tend to wear boots with a dress and a cardigan which is super cute and they also look really nice with mom jeans.
Long sleeved scooped neck tops
Long sleeved tops are definitely an essential when it comes to Autumn. The place that I tend to buy these from is Primark where they are only £3.50 which is definitely a bargain. I have these in so many colours and Black is probably my favourite as these go with everything and they also look super cute on their own when it isn’t as cold. I especially love the scooped neck look as it adds something nice to the outfit and it doesn’t make you feel horrible because I tend to feel quite covered up in the Autumn and winter.
Leapord Print skirt
Leapord print has became my all time favourite pattern on clothing recently and I’m so happy its came into Autumn. I purchased a really basic one from inthestyle and I couldn’t be more obsessed and it was only £3.99 which is such a steal. This looks so good with anything and I think it is a staple for the Autumn. I’ve had my eye on this one from Topshop which also comes as a co-ord which I’m in love with but I don’t have that kind of money at the moment but I’m defo thinking of purchasing the skirt.
Earlier on in the summer when Primark started to bring out their Autumn pieces I fell in love with this tweeded pattern scarf which I’ve been searching for, for a while. This pattern is quite close to home and it makes me really happy knowing I’ve got something in this pattern. A scarf is such an essential for the Autumn winter so having the perfect one is amazing.
Grey long line coat
For a while now I’ve been thinking of what kind of coat I want for this year and I had my heart set on a grey long line coat which I thought would be perfect with any outfit and it does. This is such a bargain but I found the exact coat I wanted in a charity shop for only £2 and I was so happy to find it.
Black and white cardigan
Something that is definitely an essential for Autumn/winter are cardigans and the main colours have got to be black and white, these go with everything and their definitely a basic you need in your wardrobe. I’ve seen some really cute ones from Isawitfirst and their only £12 which is such a bargain but they’ve been out of stock for a while but I can’t wait for them to come back in stock so I can get my hands on them.
A mustard coloured jumper is definitely a basic that I feel is essential for Autumn especially. I love this colour as it is perfect for Autumn and it goes so well with so many things. I have these tartan trousers and they look so so nice with them. Jumpers are a necessity anyway but for Autumn, mustard is a must have.
Something I’ve loved for many years has got to be a jumper dress, these are such a basic item but they are so easy to style and they go so well with boots. I’ve had my eye on a pink one from Isawitfirst and I might have to purchase it. I have this khaki one from H&M for years now and I’m still in love with it so i’d definitely recommend one for Autumn and this would go lovely with a denim jacket.
Blue mom jeans
My favourite piece of clothing that I love to wear all year round has got to be mom jeans. They literally go with anything and I’ve had mine from Primark for years and they still look amazing. If you don’t own any mom jeans which if you don’t, what are you doing but you should definitely purchase some because they are a game changer.
Burgandy tie front skirt
I’ve been looking for the perfect skirt that isn’t bodycon because I’m very self conscious at the moment and I found this one in Primark, it was only £10 which is so affordable. It is the perfect length especially for putting biker shorts underneath which is perfect. It is also super flattering which I really like, the tie waist makes your waist look smaller so it is super flattering on the stomach, the button down detail is an amazing touch because it makes the skirt look so much more expensive. What I really like about this skirt is that I brought it in the summer but I can definitely wear it in the Autumn because of the colour which is amazing. I can definitely see myself wearing this with a long sleeved black top, skirt and tights with boots.
These are all my Autumn must haves that I’m going to mention in this post, if you can think of anymore, let me know in the comments. Thank you so much for reading, I really hope you enjoy, this is the first of my Autumn posts but there will be many more. Until next time x
