As autumn approaches, the seasonal transition is the perfect excuse to re-vamp your wardrobe. While we’ve already noted that accessorising is about to become a lot more fun, judging by the latest street style, we can expect this to carry eccentricity into our wardrobe choices as well. The David Jones A/W show confirmed this as well, showcasing a number of bold looks.

While autumn staples used to include more basic options (i.e. black turtleneck and black boots), this shift towards brighter and bolder looks means that this season will look different than autumns past. To see how the trends are changing, keep scrolling to shop our choice of staples to add to your wardrobe this autumn.


Beanies have been a major street style trend lately. And, they keep your ears warm on cool winter nights—always a plus!

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Autumn 2018 is all about bright colours. Can you imagine a cosy wear to adapt the trend?

Say goodbye to your plain white tee, statement t-shirts are all the style lately. It's no secret we love all things French, so this one is a winner in our books.

On the coldest autumn days, you will be thankful for a cosy jumper like this. In addition, the bright red colour is very in style for this season.

There's no denying that a pair of black skinny jeans are always a good staple, and the frayed hem makes these ones more fashion-forward. 

This season we're turning away from the basic trench coats of autumn past and taking a note from menswear-inspired outerwear. This checked print is very trendy at the moment.

Whereas every style star used to wear black Chelsea boots, we've been noticing a major transition towards white. Not to mention, the block heel makes these ones a comfy choice.  

The perfect transition piece, leather jackets look cool thrown over anything. Add over a dress for a date-night look, or pair with black skinny jeans for a rocker vibe. 

Here's another example of how you can incorporate this season's bright colours into your wardrobe. Opt for a midi skirt, as the shape is timeless and looks good on every body type. 

As the weather cools down, go for a pair of cool trousers, rather than dress or skirt. Trousers are perfect for taking your look to that next level, and they look just as cool paired with sneakers on the weekend as they do with heels for work. 

We would be remiss not to mention the sunglasses that are taking the world by storm. Bringing us back to our '90s looks, throw on these small frames to complete any autumn outfit. 

In case you haven't noticed by now, every blogger owns one. We're not joking. Plus, the vibrant yellow is very seasonal.
