The warm summer nights have drawn to a close and the crisp autumn months are now upon us.

To the dismay of many hot girl summer is now over, and it’s time to get into your cosy outfits as the weather gets colder and the nights get darker. 

Transitioning from your hot girl summer to blasting All Too Well by Taylor Swift, and releasing what is known as your inner ‘sad girl’ for the autumn months is never an easy task.

From what books to read, what shows to watch and even what clothes you should wear, the following content creators have given their top tips on how to acclimatise to your new autumnal setting and perfectly encapsulate sad girl autumn. 

Ellie Malley, from Durham, wrote out a A-Z list for her TikTok following of more than 7,000 of how to tackle Autumn perfectly – a task she describes as ‘god’s work’.

Helping viewers transition to ‘that’ autumn girl on a budget, Ellie instructed onlookers to not get sucked into the pumpkin spiced latte hype.

She said: ‘We all want to try the new Starbucks menu right. We all want the pumpkin spiced lattes, the cinnamon swirl cappuccino – whatever it is okay. But we can do this at home.’

The university student recommended people buy syrups from Amazon or add cinnamon to ‘romanticise’ their coffees at home. 

Ellie added: ‘We do not need to be spending an arm and a leg on a coffee, okay, and I am telling myself this so I do it.’

But perfectly phasing into sad girl autumn is not only about consuming sweet flavoured coffees either – it’s about looking the part.

The content creator advised how everyone can don cream jumpers that ‘give Rory Gilmore’ on a budget.

She quipped: ‘Vinted has the best knitwear and autumnal clothes for so cheap.’

An essential component is making your environment as cosy as possible according to Ellie, who recommends fairly lights and salt lights so your room has that warm orange glow

Whilst it is important to embody sad girl season in your outfit choices according to the university student, it’s also about extending that to your home environment.

The content creator encouraged her followers to make their rooms ‘scream cosy,’ by adorning the area with fairy and salt lights that emit a warm orange tone. 

Ellie recommended: ‘Just light a couple of candles. Put on your favourite show and get under the covers and just feel cosy. It’s all about the vibes.’

It’s also important to romanticise your life beyond your four walls, according to the TikToker.

She suggested for people to don a ‘cute comfy outfit’ and take themselves to their nearest book or charity shop.  The university student said: ‘Literally walk around your nearest bookshop.

‘Look through the charity shops because there is always such cute knitwear and decor in charity shops and take yourself on a little date.’

An essential component of sad girl autumn is snuggling up under the duvet and watching a healthy dose of all of your favourite shows. And according to Ellie, watching Gilmore Girls is not ‘optional’ but ‘a necessity’.

In the autumnal theme clip, the university student also listed Emily In Paris, Fleabag, Derry Girls and Sex Education among her top picks for autumn viewing.

However, her watch list for Autumn wasn’t limited to traditional media, with the content creator also recommending re-watching old Halloween vlogs from some of your favourite YouTubers.

It isn’t only programmes that will help you phase effortlessly into sad girl autumn, its in equal parts measures about the music too.

Kiara Nelson, who boasts over 70,000 followers on TikTok, imparted her perfect playlist to help you get into your ‘feels’ for fall.

Among her musical selections for the perfect sad girl autumn playlist included Cherry from Harry Styles, Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and other tunes by Finneas.

Some notable mentions included, ‘Sweater Weather’ by The Neighbourhood and ‘I Will Wait’ by Mumford & Sons.

There is nothing more autumnal than turning a page on an ageing book for most avid readers, luckily Elise Dovaston showcased her varying selection

Among the classics was famed fiction novel, ‘The Book Thief’ (pictured) penned by Markus Zusak

Music, TV shows and pumpkin spiced lattes aside, there is nothing quite as autumnal as flicking through the paper pages of an ageing book.

Elise Dovaston, who showcases her library digitally via TikTok, gave bookworms options on what to read, in-keeping with the sad girl season.

First up was ‘Alone With You in The Ether’ by Olivia Blake, followed by ‘The Secret History’ by Donna Tartt and Before the Coffee Gets Cold penned by Toshikazu Kawaguchi.

Her final three picks to perfectly immerse yourself into the coming autumn weeks were ‘If We Were Villains’ by M.L. Rio and  ‘Beautiful World, Where You Live’ written by Irish author Sally Rooney.

Final on the avid book reader’s list to get you in your feels during the chilly months was the famed fiction novel ‘The Book Thief’ penned by Australian author Markus Zusak.
