It might be summer, but the distinct lack of sunshine has got us thinking about autumn, and specifically how we’re going to update our wardrobe for a season that feels like it’s already arrived.

If you’re also feeling like your summer wardrobe is a bit too, well, summery for the weather but aren’t quite ready to admit defeat and break out your jumper collection, here are some currently-available trends that will still look great when autumn officially begins.

Red hot

One of the must-have colours for autumn 2017 is set to be red, so get your hands on some firey fashions now and they’ll see you through to the new season in style. For special occasions during the summer/autumn transition this sexy Bardot dress is a great choice, while our frill swing dress is perfect for more relaxed occasions. If head-to-toe red isn’t for you, look out for red prints on dark backgrounds, like this striking poppy print Bardot blouse.

Couch florals

How to explain this trend? OK, so if you see a print and you can envisage sitting on it in your aunties house, it’s probably going to be huge news next season and you should get hold of it right now. I’ve probably just made it sound incredibly unappealing, but all you have to do is check out these examples to know it’s actually really pretty. Simply team our ivory floral cold shoulder blouse, palm print blouse or longline shirt with your fave skinny jeans for an up-to-date transitional look.

Bedazzled

Next season it will be acceptable to wear glittering fabrics head-to-toe, day or night. If you have a late summer wedding to attend, this stunning embellished swing dress is a great choice. To add some sparkle to your casual wardrobe opt for our glitter jersey cold shoulder top, and if all that is just too much for you, add a hint of sparkle to your outfit with some glitter peep toe shoes.

Forties blue

Heading into autumn, blue hues will take a turn for the demure, with war-era inspired dusky blues hitting the high street. Get the look now with our cowl back blouse, floral Bardot top and pintuck tunic blouse. All three tops are great day-to-night pieces that look equally good with casual jeans or smart, tailored trousers.
