Autumn Fashion Tips For The Whole Family*

I'm loving all of the Autumnal blog posts I've not only been reading over the last few weeks, but also that I've been posting myself. As it's my favourite season I've been sharing as much as I can this year, most recently my cosy living room ideas and today now Autumn well and truly here, I wanted to let you in on a few fashion tips for how the whole family can embrace the season.

Animal Print

In every store you go in at the moment, you'll see animal print, and I am here for it! I've actually had to stop myself from buying more over the last few weeks as there probably is such a thing as too much leopard print in one outfit. I don't think the animal print trend ever really went away but for some reason it's bigger and better than ever this year so whether you want to go all out with a statement coat or just add in subtle hint with a scarf, you're sure to find something suitable. I've personally fallen in love with a pair of leopard print boots from New Look and I'm so excited to wear them this Autumn. For women, I think leopard print particularly completely changes up an outfit and is perfect for taking a casual daytime outfit for work to a dressy evening outfit perfect for a night out.

Layer Up

As we had such a hot Summer this year, I think Autumn and Winter are going to be absolutely freezing and whilst I'm happy and ready for that, we're definitely going to need to wrap up. You don't have to go all Joey from friends and pile clothes upon clothes but throwing on a chunky knit over a thin top or putting on your fave parker coat with a thick scarf is really going to warm you up on a cold day. A trend that's big for men this year is to add in a checked shirt over a t-shirt which not only looks great with a classic pair of jeans and converse but is also a simple way of layering up. When it comes to the little ones in your life, making sure they're wrapped up for the bad weather too is so important. You can find a range of fluffy coats, practical boots and cosy jumpers and accessories in lots of shops so now is definitely the time to get shopping.

Invest in Higher End Clothes

Depending on how much you're wanting to spend, I think a great tip that applies to the whole family is really shopping around and investing in good quality pieces that will not only last you through Autumn but also Winter and many months later. If you spend a bit more, you're likely to be picking up something that is made of higher quality material that will wash better and therefore be perfect for wearing multiple times throughout the colder months. There are some great high street stores out there that offer brilliant quality clothes but sometimes if you can afford it, it pays to look at designer items too. You can shop Moschino kids from designer stores like Strawberry Children so if you want to pick up some gorgeous high end pieces for your children that will see them through the next few months and beyond, they are definitely worth considering.

Dark and Warm Tones

Something else that applies to everyone in the family - opt for darker toned clothes in the Autumn months. Every year the same colours are described as 'autumnal' but that's for a reason. Colours like orange, burgundy, navy and black are all perfect for the later months of the year and make great additions to any outfit. A favourite colour of mine in Autumn is mustard. For women, you could pair a mustard knit jumper with skinny jeans and ankle boots. Also, add in a burnt orange scarf when it gets really cold for the ultimate autumnal outfit.

I love embracing Autumn, whether that's through adding in new pieces to my wardrobe or making our home as cosy as possible, it's just the best. I hope if you're wanting to pick up some new pieces for the season that these tips have given you a few ideas!
