5 reasons why Autumn is the best season to travel

5 reasons why Autumn is the best season to travel

There are plenty of reasons why I love travelling more in Autumn, and if you love Fall, you know what I am talking about. And don’t even let me start talking about the Fall fashion – every season I fall in love with the utterly beautiful collections. 

Travelling to Europe in Autumn often means fewer crowds, shorter lines, idylic weather and better deals (we love a bargain, don’t we all?) – along with spectacular displays of autumn foliage. I always travel more in September, as I feel like is really the very best time of year to go. Europe is worth visiting every day of the year, but here are 5 reasons why Fall might be the best season.

  1. It’s less crowded. When high season in Europe is over, it’s undoubtedly more enjoyable to  experience the city – especially as a first-time visitor.
  2. It’s hot chocolate season. I love cuddling up with a book while nibbling on some croissants and a cup of hot chocolate – the best thing to do once the leaves start to fall off the trees and the temperatures drop.
  3. There’s colour everywhere. No season is as beautiful as Autumn is – the most photogenic season of the year resembles a vivid watercolour painting.
  4. It’s less expensive. Autumn is often a less expensive time to travel. You can probably find a couple of tickets, or that hotel room you’ve been eyeing for a while, for a cheaper price than you would during the high season.
  5. You can enjoy the outdoor more. In the Summer, it can be extremely hard to come across a free table at your favourite restaurant. Don’t worry – once Autumn comes in full swing, the tables get much easier to nab. Yes, I know sometimes is too cold to sit outside, but the Parisians and the Italians love their terraces so much, they’ll do their very best to make the outdoor space as warm and inviting as possible.

But oh the horrors of travelling! Whether I’m on a vacation or heading somewhere for work, the most important travel tip is to wear a number of lightweight layers and a few ‘go-with-anything’ pieces. Another reason why I travel more in September is the fashion month – which I know is a bonus. But that means I  have to be very careful when packing as I need to make sure each piece can be worn in a few different outfit combinations.

I can always rely on H&M – that recently won The Ultimate Retailer Of The Year at Cosmo FashFest, for basic yet elegant pieces and their Fall collection based on 70’s glam is seriously lust-worthy. Think deep V-necks, wide trousers (hello there never ending legs), fine knit sweaters – a must when travelling as they’re so easy to wear and versatile, and belted waists.

Autumn coats are the sartorial backbone of our seasonal wardrobe, so it’s absolutely essential that we find the perfect one. If you are looking for something practical to keep out the chill when travelling (and the guaranteed English drizzle), a military style coat is probably the best way to beat back the changeable weather whilst looking chic. And remember, investment is not often the key to finding an instant signature style. In fact, there’s no need to splash your whole salary on a coat, when you can get one at H&M at a fraction of price (without compromising on quality or fit, naturally). Team with a feminine blouse and some cool denim flares and you might even be mistaken for a Parisian. Très jolie!
