While those of us in the UK – particularly those looking forward to a British staycation – are still waiting for summer 2021 to really kick off, we’re actually only a few weeks away from the start of autumn.
Before you groan and pack away that pedicure kit, bear in mind that we are still being assured by the experts that an August heatwave is coming. And you don’t have to tell us twice…
While the ‘end of summer’ may sound entirely unappealing, once you remember that it brings with it the summer sale season things suddenly start to look a little brighter. Who ever said fashion fans were fickle?
13 autumn fashion trends we guarantee we’ll all be wearing very, very soon (especially if summer doesn’t make a comeback!)
If you’re feeling as though you’re yet to even kick off your summer wardrobe, fear not; you’re not alone and you’re certainly not too late.
After 18 months spent in varying stages of lockdown and subsequent stages of loungewear, it can feel both exciting and intimidating in equal measure to re-emerge back into the real world wearing real clothes.
And while we always recommend shopping around in your own wardrobe before you even consider purchasing something new, once you do find those gaps that need filling – be it a more casual summer dress, a comfortable lightweight work trouser or something special for a family wedding – it’s all the more satisfying when you find *the one* at a discounted price.
