No matter where you are from, no matter what you call it; autumn/fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. The crunch of the orange and red leaves that have carpeted the parks and streets. The numerous walks you can take in the cold and fresh air while the sun beams and sets the most beautiful light. Everything about this time of year is just sheer beauty.
However, one of the most difficult things to do is dress for the season. There is the fear of rain coming along and ruining a look, but could a hat fix that? Or do you need to have a hood? Will it be too hot for a hat and scarf? And how will it look with what you are wearing. Basically, autumn is here to test your fashion ability. So here are the three most important things you can do to pass that test.
1. Firstly, don’t throw your summer coat to the back of the wardrobe yet. Autumn is filled with those hot days that you just don’t expect and then it’s too late and you have beads of sweat soaking into your beanie. Not attractive and not cool. One way to avoid that is to layer a high-necked top and a cable knit together. A look created by YouTuber Ingrid Nilson who wore this look in her video. You can then add a summer jacket over to ensure you have a hood if needed. This means that when the sun does peer out you can wrap your jumper round your waist and keep that cool autumn look.

2. Speaking of jumpers, don’t think for a second that you have enough. Autumn is the first step into winter where you are going to need a whole load of jumpers. Sadly sometimes our budget will make this easier said than done. But that can be simply overcome. The best thing is to pick up very neutral colours that you can mix and match at any time. The classic tan, khaki and burgundy are your three wardrobe must haves.

3. The last and by no means at all the least most important thing to any girl’s wardrobe – shoes. This is a tricky one because there are so many different kinds of shoes you could go for. I always go between two different kinds but to be honest, the most important thing is the boot. Whether you wear the ankle boot, the knee high or the thigh high – the boot is the most important thing. They are simple to throw on and can make any outfit. They are also ideal for that autumn dew that is everywhere along with if the rain falls.
Are there any things you think are an autumnal necessity?
