The Future’s Bright

I think I may have cracked it – the shopping conundrum that is – not Brexit or anything so useful but what to buy that will work just as well now as into the autumn. And the answer – anything bright. Not only is colour perfect for when the sun shines, but even better, the catwalks were awash with brights – yellow was big for the autumn but so were other hues. Wear head to toe for an on-trend colour blocking look or mix with other brights and neutrals to create multiple versatile looks.

Sunny Side Up

Essential Cami £29 Hush


With shorts now, jeans later or even under a blazer for a night out.

Fine Clara Crew Neck Jumper £65 Hush

Pair with white or denim crops now and then go for the leather later.

Floral Lace Midi Skirt £85 &Other Stories

Perfect with a tee and sandals and then a knit and long boots.

Pleated Midi Skirt £69 &Other Stories.

Another beauty with a cami or sweater.

Smyth Ponte Blazer £98 Boden

Wear with denim or tailoring, this will be the answer to cooler mornings and evenings. Plus in a heavy weight jersey this isn’t too formal that you can’t dress down.

Pointed Toe Court Shoes £19.50 M&S

The perfect balance between bright and summery and a nod to the autumn ahead. Wear with cropped trousers or denim, tailoring, skirts – casually or to the office, these are a great, wearable heel height.

A Pop of Pink

Kristen Pleat Skirt £110 Boden

A tee/cami and denim jacket will work just as well with this as the tonal knit. It also come in another on-trend shade of conker so you can do shades of neutrals.

Simone Slinky Skirt £55 Hush

Wear now with a tee and then swap for a knit when it cools.

&Other Stories also has  a similar style for £65

Lace Trim Cami £49 Hush

Love this top which will be a versatile addition to your wardrobe working with skirts, denim and trousers alike and is something you can dress up or down.

Flowy Satin Dress £75 &Other Stories

Wear with bare legs now and layer over leather leggings or tights and long boots later.

Electric Blue

Silk Camisole Top £45 &Other Stories

This comes in lots of colours but is gorgeous in blue.

Side Slit Satin Midi Skirt £65 &Other Stories

Style with trainers for now and bare legs. Add a leather jacket and black boots when the weather turns.
