With our social media feeds jam-packed with a steady stream of new-in pieces and need-to-know trends, it can sometimes be hard to know what things are actually worth your time. Also, with Christmas on the horizon and gift buying at the forefront of all our minds, finding those affordable gems is more important than ever. That's where we come in. As it's our job to keep an eagle eye trained on what pieces are spiking and glean insider know-how from the stores themselves, we have a fairly good idea of what items are set to be a hit on the high street.
Last year, we summoned all our intel to bring you a lowdown of the pieces to know about for 2017, and, in our (not so very) humble opinion, we were pretty on the money. So we decided to create a definitive list for autumn/winter 2018: 20 products that need to be on your radar and should be snapped up ASAP. From Topshop's '70s-inspired snakeskin coat and Arket's traffic-stopping knit to Charles & Keith's influencer-approved boots and Kitri's party-ready feathers, prepare for serious shopping envy.
Style Notes: Erica wears Marks and Spencer's soon-to-be cult animal-print dress with a matching velvet blazer.
Style Notes: Topshop's snakeskin coat is the ultimate in statement outwear. Wear with jeans and ankle boots for throwback appeal.
Style Notes: Penelope Goldstone wears two cult buys in one chic outfit: Topshop's slip skirt and Arket's mohair blend knit. Tonal dressing never looked so easy.
