Autumn is a beautiful time of year, full of rich colours and the leaves falling off the trees. However, as we venture outdoors to enjoy the weather and scenery it is important to ensure we are dressing appropriately. Discussed below are some absolute essentials to include in your wardrobe to ensure you are ready for the colder weather.
Jumpers are a very important part of anyone’s fall wardrobe. Available in every style and colour imagine, finding the perfect jumper for fall is a piece of cake. Warm knits do wonders at keeping the seasonal cold away and keeping you comfortable all day long, indoors or out. Look for a warm jumper made of natural materials, such as wool, like those from Aran Crafts and opt for higher quality, as it will be more comfortable and last through many autumns to come.
#2. Wool Socks
If your feet are cold all of you will feel cold no matter how appropriately dressed for the autumn weather you are. Make certain you have a few quality pairs of wool socks to keep your feet warm and dry in the chilly season, allowing you to make the most of the beautiful outdoors this time of year. Wool socks are available in a wide range of colours and patterns so finding some that match your wardrobe or reflect your inner personality is never a problem.
A scarf is a fantastic accessory, especially in the autumn season. Depending on the temperature you may opt for a lightweight cotton scarf or a warmer woollen knitted scarf for colder days. A scarf can be a stylish and elegant accessory as they are available in any colour or pattern imaginable. There are endless variations on how to drape or tie them that can not only provide extra protection from the elements but look great as well.
#4. Hats and Gloves
Hats and gloves are a necessity for enjoying the outdoors during the fall season. It is important to keep the top of your head and your hands warm, as those are prime areas where our bodies lose heat. Some people groan at the idea of putting a hat over their hair, afraid of messing it up, but simply choose a hat that fits with your style preferences and looks good on you.
#5. A Good Pair of Boots
While it is not necessary to pull out the snow boots rated for freezing temperatures quite yet it is important to have a good pair of lined boots to help keep your feet warm and dry throughout the autumn season. A great pair of fall boots will feature a warm lining of some sort, such as flannel or wool and are usually made of leather or leather-like products to keep the warmth in and the weather out.
#6. A Lightweight Jacket
Sometimes on cooler, brisk days a jumper is not enough to keep yourself warm outside. A lightweight jacket is a wardrobe essential during the autumn months. Be careful not to choose anything too heavy as you don’t want to be too warm under the sun and if it is too bulky it will infringe on your mobility unnecessarily. You may wish to consider a waterproof fabric or a hood to keep the wind out of your ears.
At least one or two cardigans are essential to any autumn wardrobe. A nice warm cardigan provides you an extra layer of warmth against the chill and winds of colder weather and can help you make use of some of your favourite warmer weather pieces by being able to wear them underneath.
Having a proper autumn wardrobe is essential! You need appropriate clothes to properly enjoy the autumn season and avoid getting too cold, making yourself susceptible to illness.
If you ensure all of the above mentioned pieces are included in your wardrobe you are all set to look and feel great throughout the entire season.

Women around the world have been in love with the LBD ever since Audrey Hepburn first wore that classic ensemble in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and whilst the LBD remains a staple, accessories continue to change. The first example of the LBD appeared in a 1926 edition of Vogue according to research by Voucherbox, when the fashion magazine published a sketch drawn by the legendary designer Coco Chanel. Since then, accessories have changed considerably and it can be difficult to find the perfect jewellery, heels and clutches to wear.
It was just yesterday that my mum and I were blasting out The Weeknd’s smash hit ‘Earned It’ in the Kitchen; he is a massive talent who has deserved the recent success he has achieved as he has in fact been on the music scene for more than a while.
