18 Autumn Outfits I Wear Every Year

18 autumn outfits I wear every year

I know I’m in danger of having my fashion blogger card revoked by admitting this, but autumn ISN’T my favourite season: which means that autumn outfits have always been a bit of a struggle for me. 

Autumn’s a bit of a difficult time when it comes to getting dressed, though, isn’t it? It’s too cold for your usual summer looks, but not quite cold enough to break out the winter coats – or not always, anyway. Some years, autumn is almost indistinguishable from winter, and you’re shivering right from the get go. Other years, however, summer lingers on until you start to wonder if you’re ever going to get to wear all those cute autumn outfits you’ve been stockpiling.

Most years, though, you get a little bit of both: sometimes it’s warm, sometimes it’s cold – sometimes it’s warm AND cold, all within the same day. That’s what makes autumn outfits so problematic for me, and why I tend to just keep on returning to the same old fall formula every year: the tried-and-tested items that I don’t mind wearing over and over again, because I know they work. In my case, the formula tends to revolve around the traditional autumn colours: forest green, light brown, the occasional pop of yellow. A bit like a forest, in fact. Let’s not dwell on that thought too much, shall we?

Here are some of my favourite autumn outfits from days gone by – and possibly from days to come, too, because I’ve never been one to avoid repeating an outfit. I think the main thing we can take from this roundup is that although I don’t like the autumn weather, I DO like the traditionally “autumnal” clothing colours, and I stick to them like glue. The other thing we can take from it is that I need to stop looking off to the right in all my photos, because GOD, that’s annoying. (I do it because I look even MORE stupid when I stare at the camera. Still annoying, though. Maybe I’ll try looking to the LEFT sometimes? I mean, I THINK I can do it…) Just click on the image to go to the post it originally appeared in…

    Amber I have just found your blog & wanted to say I LOVE it! Your photos are stunning & it appears that we have a mutual appreciation of pretty Kate Spade stuff! 🙂 I really like the Primark trench (that’s quite KS-esque I think!) & the Bettie Page outfit xx

    I was thinking of doing exactly the same kind of post the other day, back in the archives of autumn outfits! Although it was kind of terrifying looking back at some of the old ones with awful photo quality, including the ones taken in the kitchen where I lived at uni with the bin in the corner – awkward :/
    Absolutely love these outfits though – made me sad though because I wanted like at least 5 pieces of clothing that you’re wearing in them, then realised they were old outfits, so no longer available – boo!

    Fall has my favorite color profiles as well! I haven’t been following your blog that long so it was nice to see some older outfits.

    Girl, you must have a heck of a closet! I love this round-up, since I’m a relatively new reader and fall is definitely my favorite season for clothing.

    Did you end up getting the dress that reminded you of one of your old favorites? I absolutely love the over-the-knee boots with dresses! I have a pair of VS black over-the-knee boots that I love, but I’ve been struggling how to style. I’m looking forward to trying them with some midi dresses this winter!

      Nah. it was crazy expensive, and probably not something I’d have a lot of use for now – it just triggered a memory!

    Swoon! Such lovely, lovely Autumn looks, there’s not a single one I wouldn’t wear myself. I’m feeling inspired for the season ahead – but am on a shopping ban – and will have to rummage in my wardrobe for things I already have that are similar to some of yours. I have a very similar tweedy jacket for sure. Part of me is not quite ready for Autumn, I am still wearing sandals if it’s not too nippy outside, am hoping for maybe one more week of that until the boots come out and stay on until about May probably. x
