9 Perfect Outfits to Wear in 15-Degree Weather

·4-min read

It's official: Autumn is here. Leaves are turning delightful colours, and there's pumpkin carving and even talk of party season approaching. However, there's another important matter we have to address. Now that it's colder, with temps always hitting the low-to-mid teens, what do you wear in 15-degree weather? Luckily, we've sorted through some key pieces to have on standby to help answer that major question.

Fifteen degrees might seem chilly, but it's actually a pretty comfortable temperature—not too hot but not too cold. Still, this indeterminate forecast is difficult to dress for. Wear too thick a knit and you'll feel flushed, but breezy, lightweight textures like linen might feel too cool on their own. To help you assemble outfits to suit a temperature drop, we've rounded up nine foolproof suggestions from some of our favourite influencers, who seem to have the art of transseasonal dressing down.

With everything from an alternative to bulky winter coats to the layering hero piece you'll consistently reach for over the next six months, scroll on to see nine impressive outfits that perfectly demonstrate what to wear in 15-degree weather. Then, should they not already feature in your wardrobe, proceed to shop the key pieces you need to re-create them.

1. KEY BUY: TRENCH COAT

Style Notes: Trench coats are considered a year-round staple for most fashion types, but they loan themselves particularly well to middle-of-the-road temperatures, too. Often lightweight but roomy enough to layer knitwear underneath, they're the perfect addition to any pre-fall capsule. Plus, they come in handy in the rain.

Shop the look:

Mango Trench Coat With Detachable Hood (£120)

COS Skinny Mid-Rise Jeans (£59)

Veja Venturi Trainers (£140)

2. KEY BUY: KNITTED CO-ORD

Style Notes: We honestly believe this is the easiest way to get dressed during this odd weather time. It's super polished and warm.

Shop the look:

Zara Striped Knit Sweater (£50)

Zara Striped Knit Trousers (£30)

Mango Track Outsole Boots (£60)

3. KEY BUY: CHUNKY VEST

Style Notes: If you invested in a chunky knitted vest last winter, then you'll be pleased to hear that they're sticking around for autumn/winter 2021. Wear the impressive layering item over a shirt dress and finish with boots for added warmth for a look you can wear until autumn really kicks in.

Shop the look:

COS Deep V-Neck Knitted Vest (£69)

Nasty Gal Linen Look Button Down Midi Dress (£29)

See by Chloé Leather Ankle Boots (£395)

4. KEY BUY: SHEARLING JACKET

Style Notes: Look to jackets rather than coats for a good cover-up. Shearling versions are on our radar right now.

Shop the look:

Stand Studio Shearling-Trim Button-Fastening Jacket (£630)

Monki Knit Sweater (£25)

& Other Stories Sublime Cut Jeans (£75)

5. KEY BUY: DENIM ALL-IN-ONE

Style Notes: What we love about jumpsuits is that, much like dresses, they provide an easy outfit solution that works for just about every occasion you can think of. However, an added extra is that they also keep more heat in—perfect for when it's 15° out.

Shop the look:

Still Here Selma Denim Jumpsuit (£330)

Free People Daisy Hair Scarf (£24)

& Other Stories Strappy Leather Heeled Sandal (£85)

6. KEY BUY: HEAVY BLAZER

Style Notes: Sure, it's 15°, but it still feels too soon to wear your winter coat. Instead, look for woollen blazers, which will keep you toasty but won't look out of place at this point in the year.

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Oversized Wool Blazer (£165)

Totême Cropped Mid-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans (£200)

Wandler Lois Slouchy Shoulder Bag (£700)

7. KEY BUY: KNITTED DRESS

Style Notes: Comfortable but chic in equal measure, knitted dresses have become a firm favourite of ours over the last year and double up as the ultimate 15-degree-weather throw-on. Add whatever footwear you feel comfortable with; though, it doesn't come much sleeker than leather boots.

Shop the look:

Frame Ribbed-Knit Midi Dress (£485)

Bottega Veneta The Pouch Small Leather Clutch Bag (£1185)

LK Bennett Kristen Bordeaux Nappa Leather Knee Boots (£395)

8. KEY BUY: KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

Style Notes: Speaking of boots, 15° marks the perfect temperature for digging yours out again. Wear them without tights to avoid feeling too hot—they'll make all of your dresses instantly feel more appropriate for the temperature, too. If you feel a little chilly, simply layer a long-sleeve top underneath.

Shop the look:

COS Midi Silk Shirt Dress (£135)

3.1 Phillip Lim Nadia Leather Boots (£760)

9. KEY BUY: CARDIGAN

Style Notes: As much as we love cardigans, admittedly, we've been overlooking them of late. But as soon as it dips to 15°, you can bet we'll be donning ours with pretty midi skirts and suede boots.

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Wrap Cardigan (£45)

Rixo Tina Printed Pleated Cotton-Blend Midi Skirt (£215)

Sosandar Blake Taupe Suede Zip Knee High Boot (£149)
