Autumn Fashion Pieces For Back-To-School Mums

Of course there are always days where you aren’t feeling up for looking your best when picking up your little ones from the school gates. However, we all get those “feel good” days where we like to put in a little extra effort and dress up in our “nicer” clothing. This page is for your feel good days.

Whether you are just looking to update your wardrobe to more autumn-appropriate wear or are looking for inspiration on how to be the trendiest mum out there, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ve picked out the best laid back on trend pieces for you to rock at the school gates.

Pyjama Style Trouser With Side Stripe, Zara

Pyjama-style trouser you say? Perfect. Now, you can feel guilt free about doing the school run in your “pyjamas”!


Studded Collar Trench Coat in Stone, Karen Millen

Lets face it, there is a very high chance that it is going to pour down at 3pm on any given weekday. Stay dry and stylish by rocking this glam trench coat!


Beige Cold Shoulder Strap Back Top, River Island

How beautifully simple is this piece? We would pair this with a dark navy pair of skinny jeans and some black pumps.


Ooh La La Sweatshirt in Red, Whistles

Snuggle up in this cosy sweatshirt whilst still keeping your “cool mum” game strong. We love a statement garment!



Blouse with Lace Detail, Zara

The teachers will be asking you where you got this chic piece from! Teamed with a pair of black skinnies, you will easily be the most stylish mum to arrive at the gates.


Leather Loafers,  & Other Stories

After I have written this post, I myself will be buying these. I have seen these bad boys everywhere recently, and I don’t think they’re going anywhere any time soon. We recommend pairing them with the Zara shirt above!


Crisp Packet Metallic Glittered Perspex Shoulder Bag, Anya Hindmarch

There’s a very strong chance you may outshine your kids drawstring P.E bag here, literally.


Liv Paisley Silk Trousers, Jigsaw

If you’re going to show up, show up loud and proud in these statement trousers from Jigsaw. Redefine “mum clothing” in these fierce trousers and be the envy of everyone there.


Denim Pintuck Detail Dress, Whistles

This cute denim dress is the perfect combination of comfortable and fashionable. If you haven’t already got a staple denim piece in your wardrobe, make it this one.


Black Check Colour Block Blazer, River Island

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
