Style It. Autumn Outfit Ideas

I think autumn would have to be my favourite season for fashion. The air is crisp but not too cold, you can still enjoy the outdoors and all the gorgeous cooler fashions are arriving in store. You can rug up in all the chic essentials like hats, scarves, ponchos and coats just for the purpose of style without having to worry about actually wearing five different [bulky] layers in winter. My go-to autumn outfit is usually a chunky knit with skinny jeans and heeled ankle boots - you can't go wrong. Other stylish essentials I love include capes, faux fur stoles, fedoras, blanket scarves and trench coats. Here are four autumn outfits that are sure to have you looking stylish this season.

Get wrapped up [chic capes save the day] 
When the weather cools down the fashions heat up and you can’t beat a cape or poncho for a serious style statement. Oxblood has to be one of the season’s hottest colours, so work the sultry shade into your outfit wherever you can.

Mono-a-mono [black loves white]
They say that women who dress in black and white lead the most colourful lives – being one myself I certainly have to agree. You can’t go wrong with this proverbial “clean-slate-outfit” in classic cuts and bold shapes.

Top it off [knit + skinnys + fedora]
Every respectable fashionista knows that a good autumn outfit needs a hat. Fedoras add instant style, transforming what was a simple knit and denim combo, and taking it to a whole new level.
