Time of the Season

We’re fallin’ for all things Autumn!

Autumn is a time for snuggling up, staying cosy, and enjoying the warm, comforting colours and textures of the season. From chunky knits to oversized blazers, soft cushions, and fluffy throws, there are plenty of ways to get into the autumn spirit and add a touch of warmth and comfort to your home. Here’s how and where to shop the autumn aesthetic in the Wollongong CBD.

Set the mood with Candles

Nothing says autumn quite like the warm, inviting glow of a candle. Whether you prefer rich, spicy scents like cinnamon and nutmeg, or fresh, earthy scents like cedarwood, there are plenty of candle scents to choose from!

Where to shop? Visit stores like The 3Rs or Dusk for a wide range of seasonal candles that will help you set the mood.

Get comfy with Cushions

Adding some soft, cosy cushions to your home is a great way to make the most of the autumn vibes. Try styling with cushions in deep, warm colours like rust, burgundy, and forest green, or choose cushions with autumn-inspired prints like leaves.

Where to shop? Visit stores like Adairs or David Jones for a range of cushions that will help you create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Snuggle up with a Throw

Snuggling up with a fluffy throw is the perfect way to embrace the season and keep yourself warm and cosy as the temperature starts to drop. From faux fur throws to chunky knitted blankets in warm, earthy colours like beige, brown, and mustard, there are plenty of options to choose from to create your perfect autumn aesthetic.

Where to shop? Visit stores like My House or Target for a range of affordable and stylish throws.

Enjoy cosy vibes with a Chunky Knit

Autumn fashion is all about layering and getting comfortable while staying warm, and nothing says autumn quite like a chunky knit jumper. Whether you prefer classic cable-knit styles or oversized, slouchy options, the great range of clothing stores in the CBD have you covered.

Where to shop? Visit stores like Jackstar Clothing or H&M for a range of knitwear that will keep you warm and stylish all season long.

Upgrade your fit with an Oversized Blazer

For a more tailored take on autumn fashion, try an oversized blazer. This versatile piece can be dressed up or down and looks great layered over matching activewear sets or paired with jeans and boots.

Where to shop? Visit stores like Frolic or Country Road for a range of blazers in autumn-inspired colours and patterns.

Boots made for walking

No autumn wardrobe is complete without a great pair of boots. Whether you prefer ankle or knee-highs, flats or heels – boots are always the answer in autumn. Ankle boots look great with jeans and oversized blazers, while knee-high boots can be paired with skirts and dresses for a more feminine look.

Where to shop? Visit stores like Billini or Williams for a range of stylish footwear.

A tasty treat to get you through

Of course, no autumn experience would be complete without some delicious treats. We’re thinking Apple Danishes, Portuguese Tarts, and warm savoury snacks like Burek! The Wollongong CBD has a great selection of bakeries and cafes that will keep you going while you shop!
