Fashion, beauty and homewares to take you seamlessly from summer into autumn.
Designer chic for less
Just out, is the Richard Allan x H&M collection. Allan, one of Britain’s most imaginative scarf designers from the 1960s, brings you a collection of prints sourced from original design archives. For a hint of Swinging London, pull on this flock-print T-shirt, £9.99. The collectable patterned scarves start at £6.99 – get one in Allan’s signature monochrome.
Take it to the max
You can grab some good fashion finds in M&S and their floaty maxi dresses are ideal for transitioning to autumn. Flattering for all figures, they’ve been a hit this summer and remain bestsellers going into the cooler months. M&S have got it bang-on with this Per Una Pure Cotton Printed Tiered Shirt Maxi Dress, £45, and similar incarnations are in store now.
Room for change
Home is where the heart is and Next’s AW19 Home collection is stunning. New bedroom decoration, tableware ranges and lamps will instantly spruce up your home. This boudoir is made up of: an Agra mango wood side table, £225, the Zhara abstract rug, £125 and the Kai rattan lamp shade, £40.
Step to it
British brand Clarks has some exciting shoe releases for AW19. These Un Maui Lace sneakers, £69, can lift an outfit – they’re available in Natural Snake or plain colours. If you just need new pumps (leopard or black ‘Grace Piper’, £59) or nude patent heels (‘Kaylin Cara’, £59), Clarks is also your go-to shop. For men, the classic Clarks suede desert boots now come in Deep Blue and Forest Green.
