Autumn comes and, as the seasons change, so will your wardrobe. It’s getting colder, and layers are becoming your new best friend. Hats, scarves, coats- they’re all making a comeback and will be around for a good few months. You may be asking yourself how you can be your most stylish self, while also staying warm and comfortable in the new season. Well, that’s what we’re here for. Here are three iconic, yet simple, looks that will have you turning heads all Autumn long.
The first outfit is for those who prefer a monochromatic theme- black and white blocked colours, sleek. And is a perfect example of a look with layers, styled perfectly to prevent a bulky look. The black camisole over the cropped white t-shirt mimics a recent trend of layering t-shirts under spaghetti-strapped tops. Paired with the tracksuit bottoms and trainers, and the look becomes a fashionable yet casual outfit right for every occasion. The simple jewellery adds something to it- a hint of sparkle- without taking away from the main clothing.

The second look is chic, perfect for those who love to match the colours of their clothing. A single shade all the way through to make the outfit look effortlessly fashionable. Anyone laying eyes on you might think you have a natural talent for creating the perfect outfit. The long, flowing trousers give it an almost ethereal feel, and the shirt makes it as versatile as it possibly could be. Leave it hanging over a bralette of the same colour for an easy-going, almost sporty, style; or tie it/ button it up for an outfit that can be worn to a casual dinner on a night out. The addition of the modest gold earrings and bracelets add a splash of colour to the all-white look, creating the definition that makes it so versatile. Add a pair of sunglasses to protect yourself from the Autumn sun.

Last but not least, we have a strikingly red outfit that will put you in the spotlight absolutely. While the first two were much more understated, this one is for the bold, the vibrant. The whole outfit runs on the red and white colour scheme, and it pops against any backdrop. The combination of the tracksuit bottoms and puffer jacket makes it look seamless and casual, as do the white trainers. However, the bodysuit tucked into the trousers develops the flare of the style. Whether you opt for plain, velvet, or lacy, the bodysuit takes the look from basic to iconic instantly. Once again, understated jewellery and accessories to match the colour scheme, and the outfit makes you centre stage.
