Get yourself ready for university this autumn with our seasonal outfit style guide

Autumn is the season with the most fashion potential and there are fashion icons like Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls and Bella Swan from Twilight, and even Lara Jean Covey from the To All The Boys trilogy who have some seriously cute autumn outfits.

Pinterest is also the best place to look for more seasonal outfit inspiration. Here are our top tips on how to style yourself this new season. 

The base of any autumnal outfit is an oversized jumper or a turtleneck for anyone. Following in the footsteps of Rory Gilmore and quite a few Pinterest boards, try pairing your turtleneck with a checked or plaid skirt. To find affordable fits like this, Primark and H&M are solid student choices. 

H&M can also provide a Henley top – long-sleeved with buttons at the top – for a more Bella Swan approach. Pair with some straight-leg, wide-leg or flared jeans and you have a 2000s-esque outfit. With Y2K back in trend, it is the perfect autumn go-to.  

For a brighter and slightly bolder choice, a striped turtleneck paired with a pair of dungarees, or a corduroy skirt works wonders. It is very much a Lara Jean Covey inspired fit. Who did not watch the first movie of the series and wonder where she got all those outfits from? 

Oversized jumpers are also a very autumn staple as well, with them being cosy and easily found in most stores such as Primark and H&M (again, these are especially good for a student budget). Knitted jumpers are also a safe way to go for more autumnal vibes.  

For those wanting more ‘masculine-styled’ clothing, turtlenecks can still be the basis of your outfit with most brands stocking them. ASOS also stocks chinos or jeans to pair them with. 

Faux leather jackets are the best coverage for this season and can easily be styled by anyone. H&M, Cider, ASOS and Pretty Little Thing all stock these. 

ASOS is a good go-to for a striped turtleneck and for those wanting to splash out a bit more cash, Urban Outfitters has them too. Cider is another choice as they stock dungarees, corduroy skirts, and cardigans. 

Autumn is all about the colour palette more than anything. Browns, yellows, and reds are perfect for the season. It can be incorporated by anyone depending on your style. Keeping warm is the most important part and these outfit ideas do that and look good.
