Some autumn essentials to keep you snug and warm, yet stylish at the same time. This is how it’s done!

It’s time to whip out your faux fur coats and chunky knit jumpers because it’s autumn!  Leaves are turning rustic burgundy shades and it only seems fit to follow their lead.  Now don’t worry, we all know we’re a month into the semester and we’re all wondering where that student loan went and if we really need all those heavy textbooks (Let’s be honest have you even taken them out of the Blackwell’s bag yet?).  But if worse comes to worst, create a pre-Christmas list. They work a charm on the ‘rents!


The key to coats and jackets is making the right investment; you want something timeless and sustainable enough to carry you throughout the year and onto the next.

Missguided Black denim jacket with leather sleeves  £34.99

A jacket that can roughen up your 9am lecture outfit, then be thrown over a black bodycon dress for a night out.  It’s basically two coats in one, so imagine it as half the price in your head and you’re good to go.

Topshop Camo Fur-Lined Jacket £75.00

This coat has a removable fur lining, so it will last you through to spring – making the price tag bearable. Plus camo is an essential look this autumn/winter.

Topshop Black Faux Fur coat £68

One of the cheapest yet softest faux fur coats in the shops this season. Super warm and something you’ll be wearing on nights out as well. Don’t forget your student discount!



Under your new coat you’re going to need a new jumper! Obviously. So make sure when you take off that first layer the next is even cuter.

Missguided Markiza Chunky Cable Knit Jumper In Burgundy £18.99

A burgundy cable knit jumper is going to be one of your staple items. It’s so easy to style this – you can throw it over anything and be on your way. Team with black leggings/treggings/jeggings or just black skinny jeans.

Next Patchwork Cardigan £35

A good quality cardigan is perfect when you’ve got a top underneath that you still want to show off. The colour is on trend and it has pockets! We all love pockets.

Topshop Rose Jumper by Oh My Love £35

Wear something nude under this jumper and team with black leather shorts and a pair of chunky wedges for an edgy winter nighttime look.



Missguided Leather Shorts with Zip detail £20

These give more than just your standard pair of leather shorts because of those zips.

It’s all about the details…

Missguided Frenchy Shiny Disco Pants £9.99

For that price these are really good quality and come in so many colours, so get collecting!



Rock n Rose Hand bracelet in Gunmetal £10

This will definitely get you a few compliments!

H&M Rigid metal necklace £7.99

This minimalist collar will go with a lot of your outfits – it’s a day and night piece so it sharpens up a plain tee in the day and looks glam with an evening outfit too!


All these pieces can be mixed and matched with what you already have in your wardrobe – your plain t-shirts can get reworked with a new necklace and cute leather shorts very easily – so just have fun with it and you’ll be looking as hot as ever rolling around in the leaves.
