Transitional Autumn Outfit Inspiration

Autumn Outfit
  • Save

We’ve actually been pretty lucky with the weather as of late. Despite a little cold patch, the sun has been shining and it’s been lovely for late September. Still, the cold, fresh mornings and the overnight chills have served as a reminder that it’s undoubtedly Autumn. Transitional fashion here in Britain is always a little tricky; over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had to leave the house nice and early wrapped up in a jacket. By the time I leave the office in the late afternoon I’ve had to remove multiple layers and it seems crazy that the jacket was ever necessary on such a beautiful, sunny day. A good autumn outfit needs to challenge the temperamental weather.

I personally find summer fashion so effortless, and Autumn / Winter a challenge in comparison. I’ve found that layering is what works best for me on recent days which require an early start. In the morning I fight the urge to only chuck on clothing that will provide me with the most warmth. I layer instead, which sees me cosy enough in the morning but convenient throughout the day. Come afternoon, I’m thanking myself for an autumn outfit that allows me to remove layers and avoid sweltering in a hot car.

When I have the luxury of leaving the house at whatever time I please, I’ve been enjoying baring my legs in the last of the warmth.

Primark has a lot of gorgeous fashion in right now; perfect autumn outfit transition colours like burgundies and mustards. I love incorporating mustard as it keeps outfits light and bright whilst still acknowledging that it’s no longer Summer. Autumnal cord skirts like this one from Primark are also perfect transitional wear. They look great with boots and you can vary the boot hight as appropriate. If it’s mild, an ankle boot is the perfect pairing, and if not, then pop on some knee highs (mine are Nine West) and brace less of your leg to the chill!

Despite spending Autumn dreading the impending cold of the Winter months, I actually really enjoy many of the things associated with it. I love the changing colours of the leaves and spending my evenings cosying up with my cat, my partner, a gingerbread latte and a book or a movie.

What about Autumn are you most excited for? I’d love some fresh ideas on how to enjoy the season.

    Beautiful skirt you are wearing! I also think summer is the best season to try different outfits. As a solo female traveler, I try to dress very modestly. But I’d love to sport pretty, flowy dresses on my travels. 🙂

    I agree that it’s so hard to know what to wear this time of year…in the morning I need a coat and often by the afternoon I’m down to a t-shirt. I love your photos – you just look so effortlessly stylish and autumnal. Primark really does have some great things in at the moment.

    I’m the complete opposite when it comes to fashion. I hate trying to dress myself in summer but absolutely thrive in A/W. Give me all the chunky knits and tweed. I’ve been picking up some new bits over the last few weeks and I can’t wait for the temperatures to drop slightly and make the most of my new seasonal pieces. I love this outfit though, especially the skirt. The colour combination works so well too x

    This skirt is definitely a staple piece for the transitional period – I love it! I also agree that Primark have SOO many great pieces for this season. I went a couple of weeks ago not wanting to spend, but came out with my arms full and my bank a considerable amount lighter ?

    I love a good cord skirt like that one you have, the problem is that any time I go to my local primark all the good stuff in my size literally goes like that! Hoping to find a corduroy skirt and pinafore dress for the season.

    Great tips though!

    I love both ways you styled that skirt and the color of it is perfect for autumn! Layering has been a huge lifesaver for me during this in-between weather time. It’s crazy how cold it can be in the mornings and then it’s so warm later on in the day. The thing I’m most excited for about autumn is the changing colors of the leaves and all the good baked treats!

    I never know what to wear during the transition between seasons, I always seem to choose the wrong things at the moment ?. I went out in a Winter coat the other day and was boiling, the next day was just a jumper and I froze ha ha. I really love the colour of your skirt, it’s gorgeous! Such a pretty outfit and the mustard top works perfectly, I must check Primark soon. Thanks for sharing Soph, always love your style <3 xx
