Autumn outfits can be tricky to master, you’ll inevitably find yourself thinking, How many layers do I need? Coat or no coat? This season of transition is the perfect time to take stock and add a couple of essentials to your wardrobe. Luckily you don’t have too far to go as Bangor Main Street has everything you need for your perfect autumn wardrobe.

We’ve selected some of the perfect autumn wardrobe essentials including coats, chunky boots and cosy knits and where you can find them.

Floral Dresses

Floral dresses are perfect for autumn. You can layer with heavier knitwear, pair with boots and tights for a classic outfit that never goes out of style.

You can repurpose a summery floral dress by simply adding a cardigan and boots. However, in general, darker florals (navy/black/burgundy/hunter green) tend to look more appropriate during autumn/ winter.

A good coat makes the biggest impact on your autumn/ winter wardrobe. So invest in a good and your set for the season.

Beige is back for autumn/ winter 2020 so you can’t go wrong with a beige overcoat; it’s classic and can be worn over most outfits. A tailored coat with a pop of colour and print will make you stand out from the crowd. For a sportier look, we suggest going with a padded coat, plus it had the added bonus of keeping you extra warm!
