Outfit Inspo for Your Child this Autumn
Autumn is a beautiful time of the year. The leaves turn red and brown, the air gets crisp, and the cosy clothes start to defrost in your child’s wardrobe.
Dressing for different seasons can be hard, and finding the perfect balance between style and comfort for your child can be even harder.
But don’t fret; Village Kids are here to help. With our autumn outfit ideas for your child, you will leave with plenty of inspiration for their seasonal wardrobe.

Key Autumn Trends in Children's Fashion
When we think of autumn, we think of rich reds and muted tones like earthy green, burnt orange, and mustard yellow.
However, to keep things playful, many people dress their children in bold and bright colours such as eclectic blue or vibrant red.
Plaids and checks are a staple when it comes to autumn outfits, with many children wearing plaid skirts and trousers. Motifs are also popular in children's wear, and nature-inspired motifs have become a key autumn trend.
You will often find leaves and woodland creatures embedded in accessories like hats, scarves, jumpers, and tops. Soft knitwear, such as cardigans and sweaters, is another trend that will never go out of style.
Essential Autumn Outfits for Your Little Ones
To help you create the perfect autumn wardrobe for your child, we have created outfit ideas based on key seasonal staples.
1. Cosy Knitwear
Knitwear is the perfect way to combine style, comfort, and warmth. With a range of styles to choose from, including cable knit, ribbed, and plain knit, you can get as creative with this as you desire.
Versatile and durable, high-quality knitwear can last years after purchase. It can also be paired with a wide variety of outfits, proving itself as an autumn staple.
Invest in some knitted crewnecks and jumpers, which can be paired with jeans and dungarees or layered over collared shirts. Cardigans provide a perfect layer of warmth on chilly days, and they pair great with dresses and trousers.
Accessorise with mismatched knitted hats, scarves and gloves for a funky look, or invest in a matching set for a trendy appearance.
2. Durable Outerwear
No autumn wardrobe is complete without a puffer coat or two. Insulated puffer coats have been in trend for many years, and they’re not going anywhere. These pair great with a wide variety of outfits, including jeans, sweatpants, skirts, and dresses.
For cold outdoor adventures, pair a windproof jacket or parka with jeans or leggings and waterproof boots for the ultimate laid-back outfit.
Fleece jackets are also ideal for adding that extra layer of warmth. Their softness and ease of movement create the perfect outfit for playing out or family adventures.
3. Footwear for Every Occasion
Sturdy boots are another item that we can't live without. Whether that’s wellies, fur-lined or leather boots, these can be worn with jeans, trousers or leggings.
Pair them with a knitted jumper or comfy hoodie for the complete cosy look. Classic leather boots are perfect for more formal events, and these go great with dresses, skirts, and jeans.
Another must-have is durable trainers. With a wide variety of options to choose from, velcro straps, laces, and colourful designs, these are ideal for playground activities.
Trainers can be paired with almost any outfit, but they look great with sweatpants or jeans, puffer coats and logo tops.
4. Practical Trousers and Leggings
Trousers and leggings outfits are the perfect place to start with children's autumn fashion.
You can pair jeans with a woolly jumper, a dressy blouse or collared shirt, and graphic tees. Corduroy pants and denim jeans are the perfect autumn trendy outfit for your child. These look great with boots or trainers.
For a casual outfit, leggings are the best way to go. You can get them in various colours and patterns and these can be worn on their own or layered under dresses or tunics.
Cargo pants are currently in trend right now, and we can see why. These provide the perfect balance between style and comfort and can be worn with short or long-sleeved tops and jumpers.
5. Layering with Dresses and Skirts
No matter the season, dresses are the perfect outfit for casual days or family occasions.
For a warmer outfit, these can be layered over tops or thin jumpers and leggings. Stick to a warm, neutral palette to match the autumn season or get fun and playful by dressing your child in bold colours and geometric patterns.
Choose long-sleeve dresses made from thicker fabrics like cotton blends, corduroy, or knit materials for added warmth. For a cute skirt outfit, denim or velvet fabrics are the perfect autumn look.
Layer these with tights and leggings, for added style and character.
