Autumn is the time to burrow into your oversize fuzzy jumpers and wear the same pair of jeans Monday to Friday. Looking stylish through the cooler months means figuring out how to layer without looking like an overstuffed penguin. Here are our top tips:

SWEATER VESTED: A knitted vest, short-sleeved jumper or cardie will be your go-to autumn layer for anywhere, any day. Pair it with jeans, over a floaty maxi dress, or styled over a crisp white shirt.

START WITH A SHIRT: When it comes to layers, shirts should be your seasonal go-to. Make a classic white shirt work for the cooler months by layering it underneath a lightweight jumper; wear with a pair of tailored trousers or mix things up by wearing shirts underneath sleeveless dresses too.

COSY AND FLOATY: There’s a place for floaty dresses and skirts in your autumn wardrobe. Once temperatures start to drop, transition your summer favourites by layering with a long-sleeved shirt, jumper or cosy cardie. 

EXPERIMENT WITH PATTERN AND TEXTURE: Don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns and different materials when layering (it’s very Emily in Paris!) Grab  an army jacket and throw it over a cosy knit. Wear mix-matched prints, and play with colour to create an effortlessly chic look.
