Struggling to Dress for Autumn? Try This Super Simple Outfit Formula

Transitional dressing can be a somewhat stressful time of year if you’re not prepared. Tearing off your jacket and wishing you’d opted for a lighter knit or cursing yourself for not packing a raincoat are moments we can all relate to. But sticking to an easy layout when putting your early Autumn outfits together can simplify the process and get you out of the door without stress.

We can start by grabbing a thin knit, like a lightweight sweater, long-sleeve tee or a roll neck. I’ve opted for the latter here, with this sleek, ribbed jumper from H&M.

Ensuring you have an extra layer in case of chillier temperatures is key here. You have the option to take it off, but what you layer over your top half should still be stylish. A neutral colour never fails to compliment any outfit, so I’ve chosen this ink-blue Barbour.

Keeping your legs warm is an absolute must, and these wool trousers from ARKET guarantee a high-quality, long-lasting wear that boasts Scandi coolness.

What you wear on your feet is the key to keeping them dry, warm and comfortable. A good pair of boots will do just that, and this pair of Moc boots from Red Wing are sure to keep you looking well put-together whatever you’re wearing.

Finally, the ever-trusty accessory to seasonal dressing: the beanie. This simple oatmeal number from Toast compliments the autumnal colours of this outfit nicely.
