·3-min read

When it comes to putting together a killer outfit, there's truly no better time of year for getting dressed than autumn. Cold weather is prime time for getting our creative juices flowing and experimenting with layers. It's not so freezing that we need to be fully bundled up at all times, yet it's chilly enough to wear our favourite pieces without breaking a sweat.

What makes for a chic autumnal ensemble worth showing off, you ask? All of our go-to outerwear trends such as leather trench coats and oversize blazers; warm, go-with-everything neutrals; a few pops of colour and prints; and plenty of cosy-yet-polished knits.

I scoured my feed and rounded up the most photogenic autumn outfits of 2021 to give you a bit of sartorial inspiration. Keep scrolling to check out my favourite looks and to shop the sleek pieces for yourself.
