No season is so perfectly denoted by its rich colour palette than autumn. From the earthy browns, ochres and rust reds of the turning leaves, to the golden shades of the surrounding landscape.
Take inspiration from nature and the influences of the season with its vibrant colours and textures. Choose chunky knits, country checks and natural fabrics such as wool, corduroy and tweed.

From brisk woodland walks and roaring bonfires, to gathering conkers and little hands warming on steaming mugs of hot chocolate, there’s so much to love about this season. When it comes to dressing children for autumn days - which can enjoy both the warmth of the late summer sun and crisp chill of the impending winter – it’s all about layering and cosy fabrics. You can’t go wrong with a few seasonal staples to build your little one’s capsule wardrobe. Choose mid-weight knits in quality natural fabrics including wool and cashmere, a stylish yet sturdy pair of boots and, not forgetting, a signature pom-pom bobble hat to keep ears toasty warm if the cold snap makes an early appearance. It’s also a good idea to invest in a premium-quality coat – this is a worthwhile purchase that will see them right through until springtime.
With autumnal colours reflecting the beautiful tones of the changing landscape, look to Burberry to make a statement in this cashmere and wool-blend check coat. Perfect for woodland wanderings and revelling in the joys of a colourful autumn, the mixture of naturally warming yarns will keep out the cold whilst staying on-season with the large-format check. The changing of the seasons also comes with muddy puddles. Team the look with a pair of all-weather walkers, just like these Mayoral calf-length boots. Their soft leather lining will keep girls cosy and comfortable all season long until the last leaves have fallen.
This laid-back look is perfect for the transitional season. Throw warm checked jackets over chunky knitted roll necks for the perfect layered-up ensemble for little boys. This Dolce & Gabbana 100 per cent wool roll neck is a favourite of ours; naturally breathable as well as being super warm and cosy. Even better, it’s part of the label’s mini-me collection for the ultimate in stylish family dressing. The neutral colour trend isn’t going anywhere either. So, whether you decide to style your boys in head-to-toe tones or simply want to lighten up their looks, a pair of Il Gufo comfortable corduroys is a great addition to this seasonal wardrobe.
