The first week of term has come to an end, and you may be tempted to stop making an effort with your fashion now that you’ve secured a friendship group after Freshers. Your pastel colours and broderie anglaise days may be behind you for now, but don’t let the cool autumn weather trick you into hiding behind some joggers and a slouchy hoodie. Autumn really is the perfect season to express yourself with your style, with endless colour choices and layering opportunities. It’s time to swap your sandals for boots, your strappy top for a cosy jumper, and your iced coffees for a warming pumpkin spice latte. To help you, here’s 5 outfit ideas from high street to high end to suit any budget, so if you’re feeling spendy after your student loan dropping last week, scroll down for some fashion inspiration!
This outfit is perfect for all you leopard lovers who aren’t quite brave enough to go all out with the animal print. Patterned accessories are an easy way to give your look an edge without having to step too far out your fashion comfort zone. I’d recommend this for those sunny autumn days where it isn’t too cold, or if you’re feeling the chill then add some black tights for that extra layer of warmth in the evenings.
This outfit is the ultimate smart-casual combo. The checked trousers will give you an ‘I mean business’ vibe, but the chunky trainers keep it cool and comfy. If you’re feeling fancy, why not order the matching blazer to go with the trousers for a trendy co-ord?
This jumper dress is perfect for those days where you hit snooze on your alarm one too many times and end up running late for your 9am. Throw on some over the knee boots and you can transition this look from studying in the day to happy hour cocktails! Pair it with this Gucci belt dupe to snatch your waist for a more flattering fit, and you have a stylish outfit with zero effort required.
Who says autumn/winter clothing has to be boring? If you’re not quite ready to give up your pretty pinks and floral prints, then Ted Baker is the shop for you. As a premium high street brand, it comes with a price, however the standard of quality is undoubtedly high and will last you for many winters to come. The sultry pastel pink colour of the coat is a modern twist to the classic double-breasted coat, and wearing this you’re bound to stand out amongst the crowds on a dreary winters day.
This is for those of you who have a lot more cash to splash and are looking to purchase an investment piece. If you love bees and bold colours then you might want to check out Gucci. Even if the rest of your outfit is from the high street, by adding a designer accessory such as the Gucci star belt below, your outfit will instantly transform from basic to extra.
