Between rugging yourself up in thick knits and waterproof boots, it’s easy for autumn to feel like a bit of a ‘meh’ season. But that doesn’t need to be the case.
With the help of a few handy style hacks and statement pieces, you can easily take your weather-appropriate wardrobe to Chic-Town.
Here are three major autumn trends to have on your radar, courtesy of Boohoo, along with insider tips on how to style them like a ~fashionista~.
1. Get Into Day-To-Night Tailoring
Asymmetric Sliders, $13 at Boohoo
Autumn means longer sleeves and hemlines, but that doesn’t mean you have to turn into a walking, talking sack with zero shape. Day-to-night tailoring is the perfect way to show off your form with levels of sophistication appropriate for office and after hours. Worried it’s a bit too formal? An open-toe flat will take it from boardroom-sterile to boardroom-chic.
Cord Covered Belt Blazer, $34 at Boohoo
Paperbag Belted Denim Mom Short, $25 at Boohoo
If full-blown tailoring’s just a tad too much for your general laid-back aesthetic, tone it down by swapping the corporate bottoms for a pair of on-trend high-waisted shorts, like Laura, or a silk midi skirt. Chucking a blazer onto this getup literally changes the entire vibe, so it’s the perfect fit for an all-over-the-shop schedule. Jump aboard, we love ourselves some versatility.
2. Embrace The Western Boot
Satin Tie Front Shirt, $17 at Boohoo
Exposed Button Distressed Denim Skirt, $22.50 at Boohoo
Croc Western Boots, $42 at Boohoo
Too cold for heels? That’s OK. Magic can be created with the western boot trend that’s been popping up all over the ‘gram lately. Give it a crack with a denim skirt and dressy shirt.

Tie Front Satin Crop Top, $20 at Boohoo
Bias Satin Slip Midi Skirt, $20 at Boohoo
Speaking of western lewks, Flex Mami‘s sickening satin look is a prime example of how to make a lasting impression with some good ol’ boots. I mean, if you’re going to take it there, you may as well go all the way. Satin for days.
3. Indulge In Checks
Fitted Denim Jacket, $28.50 at Boohoo
Petite Checked Tartan Pants, $20 at Boohoo
Lace Up Chunky High Top Sneakers, $34 at Boohoo
Checks. For. Days. For a look that’s versatile – and is able to be dressed up or down depending on the amount of layers you’re sporting – checks are your go-to. Throw on a pair of chunky high tops to complete the laidback kinda vibe.
Plus Rib Roll Neck Top, $11 at Boohoo
Woven Check Pleated Kilt Mini Skirt, $17 at Boohoo
Lace Up Chunky High Top Sneakers, $31.50 at Boohoo
Isabelle Clarke is the 2019 Cher Horowitz of our dreams. You can’t go wrong with a pleated skirt and statement sneakers. A turtle-neck will keep you lookin’ sleek and toasty, as well.
3. Give Head-To-Toe Neutral A Go
Teddy Faux Fur Jacket, $56.50 at Boohoo
Crew Neck Boxy Crop Jumper, $17 at Boohoo
Super High Waisted Belted Wide Leg Trouser, $31.50 at Boohoo
Oooft neutrals. We love. Avoid looking like aforementioned potato sack with strategic selection of textures, fits and tones.
Oversized Roll Neck Jumper, $17 at Boohoo
Plus Midi Tube Skirt, $9 at Boohoo
Chunky Sole Lace Up Sneakers, $31.50 at Boohoo
You know what’s also killer about neutrals? You can inject white pretty darn seamlessly and look, I think we can all agree that our white sneakers are crying for a better rotation.
So that’s that. Autumn can suck a big fat one because if there’s one thing we’ve learned about betrayal, it’s that it’s always overcome.Image: Instagram / @emilyshake
