Autumn is in full flow and brings with the most beautiful of colours with intense burnt oranges, light and airy yellows and some low-key reds and browns.
In contrast to the summer, with the weather getting colder, Autumn provides the perfect opportunity to style ourselves in something less revealing, with the ability to keep us much warmer during the frostier mornings and evenings.
Whether that be a quality cashmere jumper, or a lightweight jacket and shirt combination, the opportunities to combine a fashionable detail with warmth and comfort are endless during this perfect season.
Style Ideas for this Season
A simple browse on Pinterest and Instagram shows you all you need to know about this year’s outfit inspirations for Autumn, and a simple search for ‘Autumn Style Ideas’ offers an array of style ideas that allow you to perfectly mix and match your apparel and accoutrements.
Additionally, it’s important to know your colour profile before deciding on your attire. This year, the selection of Pantone colours of the year include Grenadine, Tawny Port, Ballet Slipper and Butterrum and more. With this, comes the perfect opportunity to create outfits that are on-trend and match the season.
Combined with the style inspirations across social media, multi-colour knitwear is a particular style that should be kept an eye on, as this specific artistically inspired clothing design provides a stand out look with modernistic references and Matisse style inspirations.
Staying Casually Classy
Taking to the high-street can be a tall order. Combining comfort and style in today’s fashion world can make it hard work standing out among the crowd. However, this style is arguably the most popular within the Autumnal season.
The fedora is an accessory that often ends up becoming the centrepiece to your outfit, and it’s easy to see why. What you feel might be an understated offering, draws attention and gets people looking at something stylish and easy to wear.
Additionally, wearing a fedora that matches this year’s colours of the year gives you an ideal baseline to work from. The tawny port (or similar), for instance, is the perfect colour for a fashionable fedora, and one you can match with the Butterum, Autumn Maple and perhaps even the Navy Peony!
The perfect match for the fedora is a long coat (a trench if possible, however colour matching this may require some effort). Add to this some chequered trousers and heeled leather boots and you’re almost ready to don the high street. Finalise this fine ensemble with a colourful leather handbag that offsets the jacket and adds a bit of pizzazz to the outfit.
Laid Back Autumn Style
This season has a real focus around skinny jeans, suede ankle boots and cable-knit or crop top style jumpers (depending on the weather of course). Perfect for a more chilled day out, this specific style allows for comfortability, as well as trendiness and allows for everything from leather necklaces, to fashion rings and more to add a little something extra to your outfit.
If ankle boots aren’t your thing, It’s also perfect for trainers, so you can squeeze more time out of your kicks before the weather becomes too wet and cold for the feet.

Getting out into the wild can be one of the best things to do during the autumn season. It’s the perfect opportunity to see nature in all it’s glory and gain some spiritual clarity and mindfulness along the way.
The perfect style for this combines wooly hats with lightweight knitted jumpers and denim jackets, allowing you to add something special like a Kuma butterfly brooch to finish off and perfect this rustic inspired look.
The rustic look is also perfect for the darker tones of the year! The Shaded Spruce, Tawny Port and Navy Peony are made for the Autumn/Winter seasons, and will provide plenty of style ideas for you to draw from when perfecting your seasonally inspired looks.
