No matter how many seasonal transitions we live through, they always come as a shock. Like being surprised by your monthly period every time it appears, the arrival of autumn always throws us for a loop. Whether it's the first time you realise the drying rack has to come indoors or when you first get caught in a cold downpour, the realisation that tides are a changin’ can feel overwhelming.
Thankfully, the one salve to saying goodbye to the sun is the fact that autumn fashion is nauseatingly good. Beyond the overload of pumpkin-spiced everything, the crisp weather offers us the chance to indulge in seasonal classics, including chunky knits, shiny loafers and the type of tailored trench coats that would put Inspector Gadget to shame.
Still, there are plenty of new trends to keep us on our toes too, with the return of the hotly-debated ballet flat, the emergence of Phoebe Buffet-inspired pendants and the introduction of neck ties into everyday looks. So, whether you’re wanting to keep things cosy or mix things up this October , we’ve got something to suit everyone.
