Autumn Style Guide 2022

It’s been a hectic year for fashion, and just as we were settling into the security and cosiness of our go-to summer dresses, the new season arrived. Being trapped in the interval between heat waves and storms has required careful planning of our attire, and as pragmatism now dictates our everyday clothing choices, some of the creative fun of fashion has been lost.

This year’s autumn fashion offerings are diverse, ranging from flowing, elegant maxi coats to punk-inspired leather. There is something for everyone in this kaleidoscopic buffet of colour and texture.

Autumn styling ideas

Romantic

When it comes to autumn 2022 fashion trends, seasonal romance need not end with the hot weather. Keep the romance alive by dressing in beautiful dresses with subtle detailing. With this playful style, ruffled sleeves, smocking, and stylish pleats go hand in hand. Wear a blush ruffle-sleeved shirt with a pleated midi skirt and slip-on espadrilles on warmer days. Grab a pair of straight-leg jeans as the weather gets colder.

To accessorise this dreamy look, Arlo Wolf recommends Brooklyn in Gold for a pop of sleek sparkle to enhance the subtle colours in your romantic styling. 

Cottagecore

Envision spending leafy autumn days in a charming rustic cottage with a beautiful garden. Even if you can’t be there in person, you can adopt this autumn’s cottagecore trend for women’s fashion. Dress in a smocked, tiered maxi dress with a microfloral or vine leaf print for a touch of nature. Put on a pair of glossy mules, an embroidered headpiece, and delicate jewellery to transform this ensemble into garden party wear.

Won over by the natural look? Pair cottagecore outfits with Phoenix Eco in Crystal for a relaxed yet stylish look, all whilst staying eco-friendly!

Back to basics

Maintaining a structural clothing code might provide a novel perspective on fashion. Designers are showing a minimalistic approach, as seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week, in everything from easy button-downs and fitting jackets to basic yet stylish tees.

Basic blazers and tailored trousers can be accessorised with either a classic black frame like Forest Eco or a gorgeous autumnal blush colour such as Willow Eco in Crystal Pink.

Halloween style

With these Halloween-inspired autumn 2022 fashion trends, you can embrace the frightening season for however long you want!. Black, orange, green, and purple are good choices for Halloween colours. Add lace, ribbons, and ruching for texture. Put on a ruched little black  dress and green stilettos for a spooky stylish look. Alternatively, dress more casually with a pair of straight-leg jeans and a frilly purple top. Add a pinstripe jacket with Beetlejuice-inspired stripes to finish the look. All throughout the month, you’ll be filled with Halloween spirit.

Don’t forget you’ll still need your sunglasses this autumn! Just because outside is looking a little darker and spookier doesn’t mean the sun is less powerful. Brooklyn Sun in Gold is the perfect frame to protect your eyes and for showcasing the autumnal vibe!
