29 Autumnal Buys For Every Aesthetic, From Goblincore To Nora Ephron

Autumn is a time for cosy recipes, panic searching for halloween costume ideas, and contentedly cancelling plans in favour of just sitting on the sofa.

But there are many ways people want to embrace the season, depending on their aesthetic sensibilities: some prefer go full Meg Ryan while others lean into more earthy interpretations; some go full spooky, while others still sincerely love the pumpkin patch. All look different but appreciate the season in their own way.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up buys to fit whatever your autumn aesthetic. Crucially these are pieces that work all year round. From decor to footwear here are our favourite pieces for bringing this transitional season into your home and wardrobe.



Often described as ‘feral cosiness’, goblincore is like a scrappy, earthy cousin to the more aspirational cottagecore. A love of the lesser appreciated aspects of nature is essential, and plays particularly well in autumn. Moss, slugs, mushrooms and snakes all form a part of goblincore’s menagerie and embracing these aspects is part of embracing the transition into colder months.

Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron’s movies are a quintessential part of what is now known as Meg Ryan Fall: nostalgia for the 90s, big flats you can’t afford, oversized knitwear and fitted blazers, chintzy plates and ceramic vases.

Christian Girl Autumn

The spiritual successor to Hot Girl Summer, CGF started as a tongue-in-cheek meme before spinning out into a full fledged aesthetic. Inspired by a mix of Americana, blogger style circa 2010s and a sincere love of ‘basic’ autumn items, Christian Girl Autumn was first derided and then embraced on social media. If we’re honest with ourselves, the sincerity at the heart of this trend is behind the appeal.

Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patch is essentially Christian Girl Autumn’s less polished cousin. A bit more playful and a bit more down-to-earth in the literal and figurative sense, while still retaining a sincere love for all things Autumnal.
