Picture this: The leaves were beginning to turn a fiery hue of red and yellow, and the crisp air carried the distinct scent of cinnamon and apples. As I walked down the bustling street, my hands wrapped tightly around a steaming matcha latte, my eyes landed on her. She was the epitome of effortless chic, striding confidently in a toffee-coloured oversized blazer, matching trousers and a pink and brown knit peeping out, her hair tousled just so. Her ankle boots clicked softly on the pavement as she disappeared around the corner, and I knew then and there that my autumn/fall wardrobe needed a serious upgrade. With determination in my heart, I set out on a mission to uncover the latest trends and styles that would make my autumn wardrobe the envy of all. And now, without further ado, I'm ready to introduce my seven must-have items that I'm adding to my cart this season...
1-2. The Laid Back Suit- The Oversized Blazer and Matching Trousers:
For those who know me, or who have been reading my posts, I'm a sucker for an blazer, and there's nothing quite like the feeling of striding confidently down the street in an oversized blazer and matching trousers, like said muse. This versatile set in a neutral colour way will be my go-to for any and every acceptable occasion including my coffee shop runs.

3. The Colourful Knit:
When the cold weather starts to get me down, I'll be injecting some dopamine into my wardrobe with a bright and bold knit. I love adding a pop of colour to a neutral outfit or brightening up a gloomy day with a vibrant knit. This knit will be my go-to for those autumn/winter blues.

4. The Denim Maxi Skirt:
A denim maxi skirt is the ultimate autumn wardrobe essential in my opinion, and has been trending all over social media. It's versatile, comfortable, and easy to dress up or down - my kinda wardrobe item!

5. The Oversized shirt:
There are some days when you just want to look effortlessly chic and put together, and an oversized shirt is the perfect answer. I'll be pairing this guy with jeans, tailored pants and the denim midi for an easy yet polished look that will never fail to impress.

6. The Puffer jacket:
When the temperatures start to drop, the puffer jacket will be our new snuggly bff. I'm opting for a neutral cropped style to add some edge to my look this season while staying cozy and warm.

7. The Denim Shirt Dress:
The denim shirt dress is the perfect way to transition from summer to fall. I picture myself wearing it open over jeans or pants or as the main attraction of an entire outfit because it looks chic and easy to pull off. This main character always pairs well with ankle boots and a knit over the top for a casual look, or dressed up with boots and statement earrings for a night out. A versatile and reliable choice. Tick.

The crisp air, the rustling leaves, and the comforting scents of autumn are all reminders that it's time for a wardrobe refresh my friends. With my seven must-have items, I'm ready to take on the season with confidence and style! From my personal fave, the versatile oversized blazer and matching trousers to the trendy puffer jacket and midi dress, my wardrobe will be autumn approved. And I hope that by sharing these items with you, you too will feel inspired to add some fresh new pieces to your autumn wardrobe. Happy shopping gals!
