Updating Your Wardrobe for Autumn

Fashion can be tricky. Trends can come and go faster than you can even wear them all, while others may graduate from something in vogue to a long-lasting fashion staple. If you don’t have your finger on the pulse, you may miss out because of how fast the fashion world moves, or if you’re lucky, your favorite trend will stick around for the long haul. 

It’s always good to have a wardrobe filled with basics and timeless pieces to pair with trendier garments, as well as anchor down and balance out any styles that are more creative and expressive. A well-fitted pair of blue jeans, basic white tees, a little black dress, and a polished white blouse are some examples of pieces that will never steer you wrong. 

What about when a new season hits and you want to update your closet full of the latest trendy pieces? That’s what the basics are for. You don’t need to completely overhaul your closet every year to match the newest styles, but matching something classic with a piece that’s new and exciting can make you feel just as good on the inside as you look on the outside.

Here’s are some of the best autumn fashions for 2019 so you can update your look and stay on-trend.

Pair your patterns

Contrasting patterns are what autumn is about this year, so just forget whatever you heard about never wearing different patterns in one outfit. It can be tricky to master, but if you try a few varying combinations until you find something to suit your style and personality, it can be a showstopper. 

The most notable prints that walked the runways for the autumn season were animal prints, checks, floral patterns, Argyle, and the classic Houndstooth pattern. All of these are great prints to get on board with and add some flair to your outfits, so why stop at just one when you can wear multiple and still be on-trend? 

Monochromatic suits

Trouser suits are an iconic outfit and autumn 2019 is bringing them back in a big way. Bold monochromatic colours like red, navy, brown, and royal purple—the colour of the season—add some extra excitement to the classic ensemble. The infamous 1980s shoulder pads are making a comeback with the matching pants and blazer ensemble as well, so ‘80s lovers, get ready! 

Puffer jackets

Worried about your fashion choices and staying warm as the temperature drops? Worry no more because puffer jackets are in. The puffy down-filled coats are a trend for this year, so fashion-conscious people like yourself don’t need to make the choice between looking great and staying warm, because let’s face it – function and fashion aren’t usually married. Streetwear brands like jack1t.com have jumped on this trend, and even combined their coats with the faux fur trend as well.

Funky fabrics

Loud prints aren’t the only fun trend this autumn. Feathers, faux fur, lace tiers, sparkles, neon, and leather are all on the trend watch list for the season in terms of fabric. Pair some outrageous pieces with your basic closet staples to bring your look down to earth, or take a page from the high-fashion runway styles and go all out – the choice is yours to play with.
