Autumn Upgrades: Cool Additions For Your Wardrobe

It’s that time of year again when we dust down our knitwear and swap swimwear and shorts for cosy coats and layers. Autumn is a wonderful season to experiment with new trends and looks and give your wardrobe a revamp. If you’re looking for some seasonal show-stoppers, here are some of the coolest items to add to your basket today.  

Chunky sole boots

If you’ve had a chance to flick through glossy magazines recently, or you’re a fan of fashion blogs or online shopping, you may have noticed that chunky sole boots are everywhere. This autumn, keep your toes toasty and add serious edge to any outfit with a pair of heavy-duty boots. The beauty of this trend is that you can choose an everyday black boot, which will go with jeans, skirts and dresses, or a statement design to tick off multiple trends. Toughen up a feminine dress with a chic leather jacket and some platform Chelsea boots or turn heads with a leopard print or a bold colour, such as burgundy, cream or bottle green. If you’re going all-out with a colored or patterned boot, you can afford to keep the rest of your outfit simple. This is a great way to spruce up a simple look such as black skinny jeans, an oversized jumper and a teddy coat.

Statement sunglasses

Summer may be fading into a distant memory, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add style points to an autumn ensemble with a pair of shades. In the cooler months, swap lightweight frames and aviator shades for heavier frames and oversized styles. Tortoiseshell, leopard print, black and brown frames work brilliantly for chilly days. If you’re looking for inspiration, take a look at sites like and keep an eye on what your favourite celebrities are wearing. Famous faces are renowned for adding shades to glam up or dress down their outfits. Once you’ve chosen your new sunglasses, you can add extra accessories, such as a bag, a hat or a scarf to finish the look. 



Fans of knitwear, rejoice! The cardigan is back! Autumn is officially the season for digging out cosy sweaters and warm jumpers. This year, the cardigan has made a comeback, and there’s a style to suit every occasion. From fitted styles for smart workwear to oversized, baggy cardis to complement casual outfits, there’s a cardigan for everyone. 


Balloon sleeves

If you’re looking for a simple way to embrace autumnal trends in 2020, experimenting with eye-catching sleeves is the way to go. This season is all about showcasing the sleeve and playing with different looks. From giant shoulders to elegant off-the-shoulder puff sleeves, you can buy blouses, jumpers, t-shirts, going out tops and shirts that will jazz up even the most understated pair of trousers or skirt. Consider your body shape when buying tops with balloon or puff sleeves. Bigger sleeves are brilliant for balancing out larger hips and creating the illusion of a smaller waist, but they also draw attention to the top half, so if you’re conscious of this area, opt for plain colours and less volume and team your top with a patterned skirt or printed trousers.
