Checks are big this season (together with tartan and patchwork), especially when paired with a chunky knit. This dress, from The Gate Boutique in Guildford, can easily be glammed up with a leather jacket.
Bags of joy
Yes, we know it’s big – that’s the point. This season you won’t be needing to travel light. It’s also reversible – offering a navy blue option – and made from vegan leather. Love it.
Bright little number
Chunky knits are still very much the happy buy for autumn 2021… I mean, the year we’ve had? This soft hand-knitted jumper from Two Ducks in St John’s Woking is a steal, and a bright and stripy joy-bringer at that.
We’re not quite ready to part with our comfies just yet – and why would we when they look this good?! These lounge-pants in a cute forget-me-not print are not only stylish but also made from sustainably sourced beechwood trees. You’ll find them at Muddy-award winning boutique, Gerrards in Reigate.
Padding out out
Padded coats are back and this divine vegan leather number from Courtyard in Guildford is just the job to keep out the autumn chill in style.

Yes. Yes. Yes baby! We love this forest green jumper that screams positivity even when you’re not feeling it. Happy days.
Go big and go bold with jeans this autumn and flash those tanned ankles before the mercury drops. These black denim culottes from American label Rag and Bone are right on trend be it a lunch date, walk in the park or, dare we say it, a mini break? Get them from The Gate Boutique in Guildford.
This season’s boots are kicking cruddy weather into touch… and the bigger they are, the better. There’s bovver boots aplenty on the high street right now, but we love these lace-up lovelies from Courtyard in Guildford.
If you were wondering how to carry off head-to-toe knits, here’s your answer. Jigsaw’s wool mix rib trackpant. Comfort? Style? On trend? Tick. Tick. Tick.
