Autumn is a time of change - the weather turns chilly, the leaves change colour and fashion trends are refreshed for the new season. At Lily Ella, we’re always keeping an eye on the newest trends ready to incorporate them into our beautiful designs and, this autumn 2021, we’re very excited to share with you some of our favourite style movements.
In this blog, we’re taking you through our top 5 autumnal trends for women, including our all time favourite autumn prints and ladies knitwear which always regain their popularity this time of year. Read on to discover what you should be wearing this season - we’re even throwing in our top styling tips so you can learn how to replicate these autumn trends yourself!
Women’s autumn skirt
The perfect transitional piece from summer to autumn, maxi and midi length skirts are great for warmer autumn days and can be adapted to suit cold days easily through layering. Of course, as we move into the cooler months, the bright, light skirts of summer are already being left behind. In their place, we recommend leaning into autumn prints and darker colourways. Thicker materials won’t go amiss either, such as our 100% cotton ladies skirt, the Sabrina skirt.
Coming in a stunning navy colourway that lends itself beautifully to both the nautical colourways of summer and the darker tones of autumn, our Sabrina midi skirt is the transitional skirt that every woman needs in her wardrobe. With its comfortable elasticated waistband, long length and timeless polka dot pattern, this flattering midi skirt for women is an autumnal trend that can be reworn year after year.
Ladies knitwear for autumn
When the days get a little cooler and the wind blows a little bit harder, ladies knitwear stops being just a great fashion choice - it becomes a necessity. This autumn, we’re following top autumn trends by styling our gorgeous knitwear for women in beautiful earthy tones. Rich grey and dark purple are classic autumn colours and, at Lily Ella, there’s no better way to wear them than with our stunning Pippi Sweater.
Available in 5 different colours, including our stunning autumnal purple colour, this scallop hem ladies sweater is a wardrobe staple for the cooler seasons. Not too thick or too thin, and featuring a comfortable ¾ length sleeve, this purple, fashionable jumper can be worn alone when the seasons first start to turn or layered up with a women’s gilet when the weather grows cooler.
The seasonal change from summer to autumn demands an entirely new colour palette and set of prints. Gone are the soft toned pastel colours and nautical stripes of summertime, beach trips and garden parties. In their place, we have dark tones brightened by pops of rich autumn colours and darker floral autumn prints that are perfect for evening strolls, apple picking and visiting cafes.
Make the most of this year's autumn trends by indulging in beautiful autumnal prints and colourways with our stylish Antalya skirt and blouse combination. These pieces pair perfectly together or can be worn apart with plain colours. Ladies jeans are a particularly good way of showcasing the beautiful autumn prints of the Antalya blouse, and the rich navy colour plays into the darker colour scheme seamlessly.
If you’re looking for a little extra styling inspiration, our rich autumnal colour palette pairs perfectly with the raspberry Meehan bag. Accessorise with our Meehan bag for a pop of colour throughout the day, or add a beautiful contrasting necklace, such as the Ceres, for a complete look perfect for evening plans.
Autumn scarves for women
The perfect autumn accessory, ladies scarves serve two purposes - to fend off the seasonal chill and add an extra stylish layer to any outfit. At Lily Ella, we have a wide range of beautiful ladies scarves, ranging from heavy wool scarves that are perfect for the end of autumn to lighter fashion pieces that work for any occasion.
This year, our favourite autumn scarves are the cosy Jenny Scarf and the fashionable Evette Scarf. Both designed to feature a soft, muted autumnal colour scheme of greys and creams, these ladies' scarves can be styled with almost any outfit so, if you’re looking for an everyday scarf that won’t clash, these are sure to perfect your look.
After style, we’d also recommend paying special attention to the material of any autumn scarves you’re looking to buy, as a thicker material is usually better for this time of year. Our Jenny scarf, for example, is made from 54% polyester and 46% acrylic and, with the fluffy finish, it's the perfect cold-weather accessory for an extra layer of comfort and warmth.
Luxury ladies loungewear
As wonderful as autumn days can be, with the trees turning colour and sunsets flaring a beautiful shade of orange, we simply can’t spend all our time out in the cold. Be prepared for laid back, calming autumn days in the house with some of our favourite luxury loungewear styles for women. Warm and comfortable, these staple loungewear pieces will stay stylish long into winter, giving you even more time to spend in your cosy casuals.
When it comes to women’s loungewear, comfort is key and it doesn’t get better than our luxury wool mix trousers and Toulon long-length cardi. Incredibly flattering on women of any age, these loungewear staples both feature a loose fit that is perfect for relaxing in. Both pieces are also super soft, with the long women’s cardigan being made from 100% lambswool and the comfortable, heavy weight trousers made from 55% polyester and 45% wool. This soft, cosy mix will keep you warm all day long and, when paired with a warm pair of socks or slippers, you won’t want to move all day long!
