Hey there, welcome to my Autumn Wardrobe update! I feel like it is officially Autumn, or Fall if you will. Usually in the UK we have a lovely September, an Indian Summer. This year it has been rubbish, July and August were pretty rubbish and September has also been pants- it only has a week to redeem itself!
I have started updating my wardrobe for Autumn / Winter with some mass online shopping binges but I still have stuff on my wish list that I haven’t got as yet! So here are the things I am looking to invest in for winter, some basic, some a bit more on trend!

Autumn Wardrobe Update – The Trends
We are in the middle of the fashion week vibes and so the trends for this autumn / winter are everywhere at the moment. I consider my style to be quite basic and I don’t like to be too on trend, but there are some trends that I am looking to pick up this time… There are:
- Red – I literally own nothing that is red atm…
- Suiting – Check and especially check jackets- I’ve already found one of these that I love (shown later) but I won’t be jumping on the Prince of Wales* boat, I remember wearing a suit in this on work placement in 2007 and I’m afraid the gap just hasn’t been long enough to roll it around again…
- Kitten heels
- Forties blue
- Supersize sweaters
There are also a lot of trends I won’t be adding to my wardrobe this season, these include- 70s, fun tights, feathers and baker boy hats to name but a few. I have lots of staples and I am quite happy with a lot of my clothes that will transition, like jeans and work clothes, so these are just a few bits I am picking up or have my eye on to make my wardrobe up to date for the next season.
Autumn Wardrobe Update – Jackets
This check jacket I have already bought from ASOS, it’s a Vero Moda Tailored Blazer*, I bough the S and M and kept the small. I am usually a UK size 12 and 5’2″. The jacket is longline and double breasted which looks fab on taller girls but can make me look very short, so I went for the small which is a neater fit and I will wear it open, closed it makes me look quite frumpy.
I am also on the look out for a navy blazer, a thick one, maybe a tweed like this one but it’s out of stock and so far I haven’t found the perfect fit in any others! Let me know if you see something that fits the bill!
Autumn Wardrobe Update – Coats
It’s slightly too early for me to think about coats but I do like to buy one per winter and at the beginning of winter so I get the most wear out of it, so check back to see what coats I go for! I am looking for a replacement to my perfect fit grey coat that is about 3 years old from Zara so I’m hoping they bring some back again this year! Apart from that I am pretty good on basics as I got a new black coat last year, so maybe I’m looking for something a bit more fun! Above are on my ASOS wishlist- coloured check* and the New Look yellow*.
I am also on the look out for a trench. I say this every year and I NEVER find the one I want! Let me know in the comments if you’ve seen any good ones! These are two that have caught my eye, short from ASOS* and long check from Uniqlo.
Autumn Wardrobe Update – Knits
If you’ve read my work capsule wardrobe post then you’ll know how much I love a Zara knit! I have already invested in some of these which I have been loving and wearing, the burgundy jumper that I always get, Sweater with Sides Splits and then I have bought this similar light weight polo in grey, black and navy. All of these wil mix between my work and home wardrobe.
Knits on my wishlist are big chunky sweaters and oversized roll necks like this ASOS one* above. Also looking to get the red in my wardrobe through a large red roll neck, but haven’t seen the perfect one yet!
Autumn Wardrobe Update – Sneakers
Through the summer I live in my white converse* (look out for my sneaker post coming soon!) but I want an update for winter. I’mt hinking either a metallic or a leather, the above two are on my wish list and I ordered a couple of pairs of the Stan Smiths this morning – don’t know whether I want the red or the navy! Navy stan smiths shown*. I also want to get some metallics in to my wardrobe this way, looking at these Silver Stan Smiths* or some Rose Gold Supergas*…
Winter Wardrobe Update
I’ve got my eye on a few more bits for Autumn and Winter as well, but these are the things I’m coveting right now! Keep your eyes out for more hauls and fashion posts!
