October's arrival means a multitude of things: summer is officially over, spooky season is fast approaching and – most importantly – autumn dressing is now fair game. You might have preemptively added some jumpers to the outfit rotation over the last few weeks but cosy, casual ‘fits are now about to reemerge in a blaze of glory.
Whether that means adorning a well-fitting trench, wrapping up in a statement scarf or slipping into a pair of shiny loafers, autumn is a chance to accessorise to the max before the outfit-killing powers of the big winter coat take hold. Before the bitter weather obliges us to choose practicality over pizzazz, we’re stocking up on all the chic, cool climate-appropriate pieces we can get our hands on.
For those on the hunt for statement knits and leather outerwear, we've got you covered. And if you're more into the gorpcore look, we've got plenty of adventure-ready 'fits to shop too.
