my high street picks for dressing this autumn…

6th September 2022
Starting to think about your wardrobe this autumn? Here's my favourite high street picks...
I’ve made no secret about my love for the luxury pieces that I shared in my designer, autumn fashion haul last week. When it comes to dressing in autumn however, the high street never fails to deliver affordable but no less stylish options. 

With that in mind, I’ve spent the past few nights scouring the internet for the very best autumn fashion on the high street right now. From Mango’s cable knits to Oasis’s classic trench, this blog post has only made me more excited for the season ahead…


I appreciate that the Isabel Marant sweater that I shared in my luxury haul post doesn’t suit everyone’s budget, which is why this Mango option had to make the list. From its high collar to its braided design, this wool and alpaca mix knit went straight in my basket!



I’m sorry but can we just take a moment to appreciate how perfectly autumnal this dress is? It reminds me of the Seraphina dress that I was obsessed with last year. Worn with black tights and good quality, knee high boots, in my opinion, it’s an instant win.




I love the versatility of this dress. Whether you pair it with flat boots and tights or dress it up for work, it’s an easy win that will work year-on-year. And the classic camel tone? Sheer perfection!




I mentioned this on my Instagram Stories last week and stand by every word I said.  (It also happens to be the dress I’m wearing in the picture above!) So chic, so soft, so versatile, I’m tempted to stock up in every available colour.




I mentioned why I love a belted skirt in my luxury autumn haul post last fortnight and this mini Oasis number is a great example. For me, skirts with belted waists allow you to tuck layers in without looking bulky and emphasise your (no doubt gorgeous) silhouette!



Though I’d personally remove the belt and pair this with my double belted McQueen, Karen Millen do chunky cable knits like no other high street brand I know. Luxuriously thick and oh so cosy, I have a feeling that this cardigan will become a firm favourite in your wardrobe.




Let’s face it, there are so many trench coats to choose from out there, it can feel overwhelming knowing where to start! In my opinion, double breasted trench coats look smarter and provide a more flattering fit and this one from Oasis combines quality with affordability.



You can’t go wrong with a well made black blazer in my opinion. Perfect for the days where it’s not cold enough for a winter coat but you need an extra layer to keep the crisp, autumnal breeze at bay, I’d style this with dresses, skirts and trousers. It’s an all rounder that will work year-on-year.



A classic equestrian style that will never date, I wear riding boots with leggings and jumpers for countryside walks and cosy pub visits. It’s rare that I go a day in autumn and winter without them. These boots from Dune will see you through to next spring and beyond. 



I also LOVE this nautical, striped knit from H&M… so much so that I shone the spotlight on it last fortnight.
Let me know what you think! For now though, happy shopping.

Ad No-one does old Hollywood glamour quite like @santinni_london and this majestic wool coat demonstrates why. From its luxurious faux fur collar and cuffs that keep the frosty chill at bay, to its exquisite jeweller-made buttons (that I fell in love with and are available as earrings too) for me, it’s the perfect piece to wrap up in throughout winter.
