2022/2023 Autumn Outfit Ideas and Essentials


Autumn is a season of change in both weather and fashion - with spring and summer trends changing year on year, it's always a welcome return to reintroduce our favourite autumn comfort clothes and embrace the new season. There’s no better way to celebrate the beauty of autumn than to head outdoors and enjoy the changing colours of nature, however, dressing for autumn can be a little challenging. You may find yourself asking questions of, should I wear a coat? And how many layers should I wear?

Autumn Footwear

When you think of autumn style, you may picture a reliable pair of boots in your wardrobe that you can pair with any outfit to seamlessly transition you into the new season. The Barbour Redhead Boots are a great option for men, featuring a durable rubber sole and sleek ankle-length style, these boots are a great autumn staple that can pair easily with any outfit and take you from daytime autumnal walks, right through to an evening out.

Our Barbour Bredon Boots are a must-have autumn staple for women - featuring a timeless ankle-length style, these boots take a contemporary twist on a classic Chelsea boot, with the addition of a chunkier, cleated sole for a biker-inspired look. These boots are the perfect addition to your casual autumn wardrobe, as they are practical yet stylish and will pair perfectly with jeans and a jumper as well as a patterned autumnal dress, for an effortless autumn look.

Autumn Accessories

The autumn season marks the change from the bright tropes of summer to deep, rich tartans and plaids that draw colours from the autumnal surroundings. One of the simplest ways to introduce autumnal colours and patterns into your wardrobe is with a scarf from Barbour. Scarves are a timeless accessory for both men and women and are a great way to add an extra thermal layer to keep you warm. The Barbour Monsal Tartan Scarf for men and the Barbour Tartan Boucle Scarf for women have been designed with both autumn style and functionality in mind, featuring colours reminiscent of the season in Barbour’s signature tartan designs.

Autumn Outfit Ideas

Autumn and Barbour were made for eachother, when we think of British autumn fashion we think of warm, neutral tones, rich tartans, and classic tailoring which are the foundations that the Barbour brand often builds its designs from. We’ve covered the essentials for autumn and now we’ve styled a selection of our favourite autumn pieces together, to give inspiration to start building your own seasonal wardrobe.

Women’s Autumn Outfit Ideas

Combining classic with contemporary, women’s autumn fashion focuses on layering pieces that reflect these styles to create the perfect autumn outfit. The key to the perfect look is a reliable knitwear piece - whether that be a fine knit jumper, a chunky roll neck or a patterned cardigan, having a trusted knitwear piece to build your look around makes autumn styling simple. Texture and layering are also imperative to creating a look that is effortlessly put together. Texture can be created with colours, patterns and different materials, and a good rule of thumb is to allow two of these elements to be in any one outfit.

The Barbour Mariner Knit Jumper is a great versatile knitwear item that can be styled in a variety of ways to create an authentic autumn look. For a simple yet faultless outfit, contrast the dark tones of this navy jumper with the brightness of the Barbour Otterburn Straight Leg Jeans in white and pair with a dark boot such as the Barbour Bredon Boots for a twist on a monochromatic look. Add a classic Barbour wax jacket such as the Barbour Beadnell to finish off the look with a practical yet stylish weatherproof jacket, an essential for the changing weather.

Barbour Women’s Autumn Accessories

Complete your outfit with a classic tartan scarf, such as the Barbour Lawers Tartan Scarf to add an extra layer of warmth with texture to add definition to the style. If it’s not cold enough yet in the season to pull out a thick, wool scarf you can still add a flash of tartan into your look by accessorising with the Barbour Contin Cross Body Bag - the perfect size to fit in your everyday essentials in a sleek, stylish way.

Autumn Outfits for Men

Our autumn menswear collection focuses on practicality, neutral prints and classic tailoring as the base to build up your seasonal wardrobe. A simple way to build seasonal outfits is to implement one or two statement items into your rotation that you can then add to. Whether it be a tartan scarf, a classic weatherproof jacket or a statement pair of corduroy trousers, having one or two staple items that fit you well and are neutral enough to build on will make choosing your everyday autumn outfits easy.

Versatility of your wardrobe is important when choosing staple pieces to add to your seasonal collection. A classic tailored shirt such as the Barbour Yaleside Tailored Shirt in a forest green tone pairs perfectly with the dark honey tones of the Barbour Neuston Stretch Cord Trousers. Complete this combination with a plain black jacket such as the Barbour Sapper Wax Jacket and a pair of stylish yet practical Barbour Farsley Chelsea Boots. This look is versatile enough to wear during the day on a countryside walk or in the crisp autumn evenings and can be easily layered with additional accessories to adjust to your personal style.

Men’s Autumn Accessories

When the weather starts to take a turn for the worst, make sure to wrap up warm with some classic accessories such as a patterned hat, thick pair of gloves or stylish scarf. Incorporating all of the colours of the season, the Barbour Dunsdale Checked Beanie is the perfect men’s autumn accessory as it is not only practical but can also add a pop of colour to your wardrobe. Having a reliable pair of gloves to hand is key to staying comfortable in the outdoors as the season changes and the Barbour Carlton Knitted Gloves are crafted from the softest wool to keep you protected all season long.
