Seeing the pavements covered in beautiful fallen leaves and breaking out some woolly knitwear always gets us in the mood for autumn! To embrace one of our favourite seasons, I've teamed up with one of my friends, Kris (who runs the most beautiful children’s clothing boutique in Edinburgh) to style some pieces to show us how to rock AW dressing! Check out some the super cool looks below and the key pieces you need to create that perfect cosy outfit for your little one, that won’t slow them down or get in the way of lettings kids be kids!

  1. Invest In Some Knitwear

    Is there anything better than on a crisp autumn day being able to leave the house without a bulky coat on and just a lovely woollen jumper? How cute do these cosy alpaca knit sweaters look over some fitted leggings, which you can mix and match or pair with similar autumnal hues. Knitwear is super durable and long lasting, making it perfect for kids. Afterwards, these pieces can easily be passed down to younger siblings so you’ll get plenty of use out of your investment.

  2. Versatile Denim

    We love denim all year round and Autumn is no exception. Not only is denim hard wearing but it goes with everything. We love dark indigo denim in the winter months but lighter washed out shades, whilst typically summery, can still easily transition over to Autumn. Simply pair them with some lovely seasonal shades such as mustards and plums. Denim jackets are great for throwing on over playsuits or dresses and with some warm accessories, you’ll easily squeeze a few more weeks out of them.

  3. Outerwear

    When the temperature drops, but it’s still not cold enough for a thick winter coat, then a couple of light outwear pieces are another useful addition to your child’s wardrobe. A decent raincoat, a fleece lined denim jacket or a cosy teddy coat (c’mon how cute is this?) are all perfect to see your little one through autumn & beyond.

  4. Layers, Layers, Layers

    We love wrapping up in cosy layers! Especially when you have some cute pieces in your little one’s wardrobe that you’ve been desperate to get some more use out of. You can pair just about anything under a knitted cardigan or layer a long sleeve top under some cool dungarees. We also like to stock up on some short and long sleeved thermals that can easily be layered underneath clothing to add a little extra warmth on those chillier days.

  5. Accessories

    Last but not least, it’s time to break out those accessories! Knitted hats, knee length socks and tights, woolly scarves, leg warmers and gloves encompass all things autumn. By changing up the accessories you needn’t keep buying new items for your child’s wardrobe. Instead, invest in some high-quality staple pieces that you trust will see them through winter and play around with the accessories to keep your child’s outfit fun and unique!
