The 6 Best Autumn Tops to Wear With All Your Jeans, Skirts and Trousers

Autumn is rolling in, so much so that we can almost taste those spiced latte's, AMIRIGHT? The temperature has definitely dropped, and after getting used to a scorcher of a Summer we wouldn't blame you if you're none the wiser on what to actually wear now. Is it too cold for a bare leg and sandals? Do I need a jacket or will a cardigan suffice? This in-between time us fashion folk call 'trans-seasonal' can bring to light some serious style conundrums.

But don't despair—getting to grips with your wardrobe right now is easier than you think. All you need are a few versatile staples that will ease you through autumn and all the way to winter. From classic jeans, to easy skirts and stylish wide-leg trousers. To make the most of all of these however, an edit of good tops is key. So, I've trawled the internet for you and come up with the best Autumn tops to wear with everything you own, whether that's your favourite denim, maxi skirt or cargo trousers. Keep scrolling and you'll find an edit of pieces to wear 'on top' that have your trans-seasonal outfits all sewn up.


Style Notes: Influencers like Chrystelle Eriksberger know a great autumn outfit when they see one. Her oversized knit ensemble is from brand to know Studio Constance. We are obsessed.

This edit of the best autumn tops will take you anywhere, whether you are going on a walk in the park with pals or to a cosy pub lunch, and go with anything. (You'll find me trying all of them with my favourite & Other Stories jeans.)
