Autumn Wardrobe Staples


I remember back when I said to myself that I'd do one of these seasonal staples post every, well, season, but it would appear I've not actually done one since last winter. My bad. But here I am with an autumn one because there are certain things I've been turning to more frequently since the weather turned a little colder so I thought I'd share them in a lil' outfit on here. I looked back at last year's autumn staples post and surprisingly this one doesn't consist of exactly the same outfit (although it's one I definitely still wear so it certainly could have done), but anyway as usual these are just my autumn wardrobe staples, not a post telling you all what you should be wearing cause we all know that ain't my style.



Oversized jumpers | I mean, obviously. It can't be just me that gets excited about knitwear and the bigger the better in my opinion. I got this jumper two years ago (I actually featured it on my blog all the way back here if you want a laugh) and I still love it. I bought it in a large purposefully so it was oversized which means it's super cosy. It's also cream so goes with everything and I plan to wear it a lot over the coming months along with the rest of my ever growing knitwear collection.

Checks | I am a big fan of checks at the moment. I don't exactly know what this specific check is called or if it has a name, but you know the kind of check I mean right? (If you don't, I mean the check that's on my trousers in this post, I'm sure you got that...) They're everywhere at the moment which I love. I've already picked up a check blazer, a check jumpsuit and these beaut check trousers that were such a bargain from Primark that when I tried them on at home and realised they were too big I couldn't be bothered to take them back and instead safety pin them together every time I wear them. Glam.



Ankle boots | OK so these boots were definitely in last year's autumn wardrobe staples post, although these are actually a newer pair (of almost the exact same boot that's true). As much as I'd love a pair of over the knee or even knee length boots, I really struggle to get some that are a) the correct length for my short legs but b) wide enough to actually go round my calves. Luckily though I do love a good ankle boot so these are a definite staple for me - to the point where I've worn them for every outfit post in October bar one. Note to self: must buy some new ankle boots so that I don't just wear these non stop until May.

Layers | I'm loving layering at the moment, not only because of the British weather not being able to make its mind up, but also aesthetically. I'm especially loving shirts under jumpers, more specifically a denim shirt under this cream jumper. I don't know what it is about this outfit because really it's quite oversized and shapeless, but it just makes me feel put together and sassy in a 'yeah I just threw this on' kinda way (even though I definitely didn't, I thought long and hard about putting it together).



What are your staples this autumn?

Jumper - Brave Soul (old) | Trousers - Primark (current) | Shirt - Topshop (similar) Boots - Topshop (here) Bag - Primark (old)

  2. Definitely on board with oversized jumpers! They can literally make an entire outfit. Haha, I also have the habit of wearing the same ankle boots again and again - great excuse to keep buying more boots though, right? ;)

  3. I absolutely loved this outfit the moment I saw it on your insta - it all works so well together! I'm always a fan of shirts under jumpers, and I need to pick up some checked items too, I dont know how I've not got anything in that pattern yet. Love the lip shade too! xxx

  4. Love the photos!!
    Tights and boots - I'm loving being back in them! I haven't really found any chunky jumpers I love right now, that aren't that awful scratchy material, so I'm sticking with layers!

  5. Plaid pants are definitely big this fall and I am loving it! Props to you for styling this outfit so stylishly! I always have stayed away from over-sized jumpers as I feel I like am drowning in them (petite girl problem) but seeing how amazingly cool everyone's looking, I guess I feel bit encouraged to give it a try this time :)

  9. Omg tell meee about the indecisive British weather!! It's been getting on my nerves lately because I can never decide what to keep in my wardrobe and what to lock up until it's a tiny bit more predictable hahah. I am definitely loving ankle boots at the moment though, they're super comfy and go well with everything! xox

  12. I really need to invest in a new pair of ankle boots! I wore my favourite pair to death last year and the sole fell off one of the feet, which shows that they were very much a staple for me too! I've been loving over the knee boots this year but you can't beat the comfort of the ankle ones! You look gorgeous in this outfit as always!
