October is officially within touching distance, and if you’re having an existential crisis about the seemingly quickening passing of time then you’re not alone. It seems a mere second ago we were enjoying a beachside Aperol and suddenly our ASOS search history includes boots, tights and knitwear. And whilst the lack of vitamin D is an immediate cause for concern, it’s worth focusing on the positives- namely that cosy season dressing is most certainly superior to that of summer…

The self-inflicted need to fake tan your legs every time you want to rock bare legs- consider it gone. The era of leggings and joggers is here. The societal pressure to have shaved arm pits before wearing a strappy top- it’s a thing of the past. It’s long sleeved szn and embracing your inner hedgehog (or similarly cute nocturnal creature) is the only way to make it through. From turtlenecks to slippers, Ugg Ultra Minis (IYKYK) to ribbed flares, prepare to level up your new-in wardrobe. 

So settle in, light a candle and assume your relaxation stations.

Zoe’s Picks…

A couple of staple pieces I love in my wardrobe for this time of year are a good pair of boots, these from Arket look SO comfy! I also love a pair of pleather trousers as they’re so weather appropriate and cosy when it’s cold. A hat is of course a must, I have a nice collection of these from Arket and they last really well. A nice hoody to throw on under a coat or jacket is also something I love having in my wardrobe!

Darcey’s Picks…

I looooove this season and all the comfy clothes you can wear. You really cannot go wrong with a comfy co-ord for at home and I love this one from Boux Avenue, it’s giving elevated comfort, something you wouldn’t mind your Deliveroo driver catching you in. Future Self tracksuits are the G.O.A.T too, honestly I live in this tracksuit and it looks so good day to day. Mini UGGs are an essential too this time of year, basically wearing slippers at all times, perfection!

Maddie’s Picks…

For me, a comfy outfit always starts with underwear. You can be wearing the snuggliest garms but have an underwire or tight knicker digging in and it’s just letting the whole thing down. The Underdays everyday brief and boux avenue bralette are my go to when I want the ultimate comfort. Everyday is rest day for me which is why the GymShark joggers are a staple and you can’t beat a thick pair of socks and fluffy slipper combo to really feel like autumn has truly begun.

Danielle’s Picks…

Bring on the season of snuggle! I cross my fingers and pray for rainy days come September so I can roll around my house in the comfiest of clothing. These Adanola leggings look so snug and I’d pair them with this sweatshirt from the new Future Self collection, I’ve felt how soft this bad boy and I WILL be snapping it up. On the feet, we’re going with glorious cashmere blend socks and these fuzzy sandal slippers (both of which I’d wear out to the shops). And finishing off my haul with the blanket I can drag around my house with me, Maleficent style!

Liv’s Picks…

Autumn is my favourite season of the year. I love layering and comfy cosy fits so its just perfect perfect perfect. I’ve gone for a relaxed outfit that can be worn both in and outside the house, I like to think of these outfits as outdoor pyjamas. I love these style leggings as they feel a bit different and bring a little more to an outfit than the usual tight fitting ones, which would also work well with this outfit. The cashmere socks inside the birkenstock’s is just a cosy dream waiting to happen.

Lily’s Picks…

Entering the cosy season means loungewear is a staple! I never usually cared for house shoes or full blown fleece sets, however, ever since lockdown I am a sucker for them… I LIVE in all things oversized and my hibernation began the minute it turned cool this August (don’t hate me). I can’t wait to start getting more cosy comfort loungewear to chillax in bingeing Harry Potter and curl up with a coffee and a good book!

Lareese’s Picks…

I never thought I’d reach the age when I start wearing house shoes, alas here we are! I’m not talking about slippers, they’re for another occasion altogether, I’m talking indoor house shoes the ultimate loungewear must-have if you ask me. Like slippers but for more formal occasions, ha. Ok, you get the gist. I take my autumn comforts seriously as you can probably tell. Once September’s been and gone, it’s pjs, chunky knits and loungewear until spring babes. Hibernation mode: activated.

Charlotte’s Picks…

Being comfortable is my jam. Yes I love an inappropriate cowboy boot or mini skirt as much as the next person, but if it’s not comfortable then it’s not making the cut. I’m ready to spend the autumn season indoors appreciating some well overdue ‘me’ time and these Mango PJs are absolutely going to help me do that whilst still feeling somewhat stylish. J’adore! And I know what you’re thinking, this Ganni t-shirt is pretty expensive, and you would be right, but the amount I wear a graphic or oversized tee makes me feel it’s kinda justifiable? It’s just so perfect!
