It’s bittersweet – on one hand Summer is rapidly coming to an end, on the other hand it means we can finally get our chunky knitted jumpers out and snuggle up on the sofa! But Autumn can be confusing at the best of times. How cold will it be? Is it coat season yet? Is it time to tidy away my summer dresses to the attic? Don’t fear, our hippy autumn checklist will have you feeling ready to brave the next season in style.
Jackets and lightweight coats
This is probably the biggest transition we face when it comes to Autumn. We are so used to leaving the house without a second thought for outerwear, now suddenly we need to find suitable jackets and coats! We are currently loving the Aztec print woven jackets we have in stock. Not only do they make a bold statement, they are durable and not too hot for this time of year. The key to autumn outwear is light jackets which you can always use to layer up if necessary!

Ponchos are a great alternative to wearing a coat or jacket! Not only do ponchos look great and make you stand out from the crowd, they are also extremely practical and easy to throw on over any outfit. At Hippy Clothing we love fringed, embellished and patterned ponchos to give your autumn style that extra edge.

Don’t put away the dresses yet!
This is the biggest mistake people make when Autumn comes around! The dresses and skirts get neatly folded and put away until May the following year, but these pieces still make for great outfits. Smock dresses, pinafore dresses, patchwork dungarees, you name it, all look great with a pair of thick tights and chunky autumn boots! This Autumn we are all about layering, so just because it may be cold to wear something on it’s own, it doesn’t mean it couldn’t be a great piece in a whole look! Long-sleeve t-shirts look great under dresses and can be layered with knitted cardigans or woven jackets. So please, whatever you do, hang onto the summer wardrobe for a little longer!

Scarf’s aren’t just for winter! Whilst it may not be quite the time to dig out your chunky knitted scarf just yet, there are loads of cooler hippy alternatives! Silk scarves are great for a bit of extra warmth whilst adding an extra something special to an outfit, and most feature unique embroidered patterns or tassels. Or make your scarf THE outfit! Wearing a plain t-shirt and harem pants with a fleece blanket scarf is a great way to make a statement with a scarf. Drape the scarf around your shoulders for it to flow like a cardigan, and experiment with deep autumnal colours to complete the look.

Get your home ready too!
It’s not just your wardrobe that needs a revamp this season, get your home autumn ready too! Nights are getting darker, and the temperature is getting colder … did somebody say duvet days? This season it’s all about creating a cosy space to relax in, from scatter cushions, incense, cosy throws, and warming tea light candles. Get creative and create your dream cosy den.
