There is an undeniably different atmosphere that exists on the busy streets of a major city. Having perfect autumn outfits instils in you a whole new confidence and you suddenly feel as fashionable as the mannequins in the shop windows. The big skyscrapers, the stores and restaurants, there couldn’t be a better place to show off your fashion sense. Whether you’re going to work, sight seeing, or having a night out on the town, the city presents an opportunity for a new array of looks. It was only right that we provide some ideas suited to whatever plans you have so here are some examples of chic city style.
Autumn Outfits – Eventful Morning
Regardless of what you have planned, if you’re going into the city it’s probably going to be an eventful morning. Let’s face it, getting on and off trains, catching taxis and walking through crowds while looking glamorous has its risks. If you have a busy schedule lined up and want hassle free style, this autumn outfit is one you really need. Easy and effortless, but incorporating autumnal themes is what we were going for in putting this look together for you. For autumn weather, a sweater is really quite perfect. It keeps you warm and covered but isn’t too thick. Wear a coat over it or leave it on its own, it is just as stylish and easy to pair. This Daniel V-neck cashmere sweater by CZ Falconer is a great example and the soft fabric is irresistible. Wear it with Hoss Intropia’s leather skinny jeans for comfort and added style. The colours of the sweater inspired us to keep the theme going with these red watercolour suede leather boots. A little different for autumn, but very chic and comfortable. This look stuns with some silver jewellery to contrast with the autumnal purple/red colours and co-ordinate with the boots. The watch by Abbott Lyon and silver earrings by Mei-Li Rose will do just fine. Finally a simple bucket bag wraps this outfit up and you’re off… literally.

Autumn Outfits – Lunch in the City
In the city, it is impossible not to find yourself gazing around at the different restaurants. The posh style some of the city restaurants pose has inspired this urban outfit. For a more leisurely afternoon, you have more leeway to be creative and relish in diverse fashion choices. It presents another opportunity to show off some style. Depending on the formality of the lunch, this outfit will suit well and is comfortable too. A sleeveless wool coat is something you might not have styled before but that’s what we’re here for right? This purple piece by Yuzzo London is everything you need for an autumn outfit. As it is short sleeved you won’t be sweltering in heat. The length is perfect, so it can be worn over practically everything you have including jeans and leggings. We’ve picked this faux leather pair by Hoss Intropia. One of the best aspects of this outfit is that it leaves the shirt or jumper you wear underneath the coat completely up to you. Black would be an option for this look to match the leggings, but we have selected a speckled white tee. To complete this city ready look add in a black patent tote bag for edge. During the season, autumn outfits are perfect for rocking fedora hats. Don’t be too hesitant to wear one, especially this stylish one from Panames & Co.

Autumn Outfits – Night on the Town
As the day ends and night time draws in the city, it is like a whole new world. The pubs, bars and theatres are suddenly filled with more people, and of course the fashion changes. A night on the town can consist of many different places to go to which may require different outfits. The one we have composed above would be suited for an evening at the theatre or even dinner with friends. Evening wear can also inspire some new confidence and your style should not be an exception. Fête Impériale’s Theodora midi skirt is an elegant and sophisticated piece guaranteed to get you some deserved compliments around town. The intricate patterns and colour scheme also wear beautifully with black, so this sheer Georgette shirt is a great match. For your accessories, there is hardly a limit here. A vintage style wristwatch with this look is stunning and you shouldn’t pass up another opportunity to wear a fedora hat, this time in black with a black ribbon for a timeless look. Finally the suede Drita bag offers a luxurious alternative for autumn outfits, and of course we love the fringe detail with the skirt.
