As the seasons change so to do the trends. But if you’re not quite ready to ditch the summer wardrobe in favour of winter cover-ups, here’s our guide to those sartorial saviours that will take you from one season to the next with ease.
DON THOSE DUNGAREES
Perfect for warmer autumn days or when there’s a chill in the air, dungarees and boiler suits should be your absolute wardrobe staple. Dress up with chunky jewellery or pair with white trainers and this will be the hardest-working piece in your wardrobe.

DITCH THE SANDALS
Back away from the Birkenstocks and step out in style with new season lace-ups. These smart and classy shoes work with everything – from tailored trousers for the office to floaty floral dresses for a more relaxed look – and opt for an on-trend chunky heel and patent leather finish.

THE STAPLE CARDIGAN
Comfy, cosy and versatile, the humble cardigan is perfect for those in-between seasons whether you go for a waterfall, button-up, shawl collar or chunky knit. This timeless layer is your fashion friend when the temperatures start to fall.

THE TIMELESS BLOUSE
Say farewell to those short-sleeves for another year and instead invest in a blouse that will slot effortlessly into your autumn wardrobe. Plump for pretty pleats, frills and a high neck for the new season, while relaxed silhouettes and embroidered detailing adds a feminine edge.
