We Brits are well accustomed to cooler climes, so we don’t consider it bragging when we say we’re experts at dressing for autumn. If you’re anything like the entirety of the Who What Wear UK office, chances are you’ve already started to dig out your favourite jumpers and coats and are even considering dusting off those black opaques.
However, before you get ahead of yourself, we suggest making the most of this in-between period… We consulted with some of our favourite influencers to bring you an edit of the nine pieces every woman really needs to kick-start her autumn wardrobe. From the new take on co-ords to It shoes that will look the chic part on trans-seasonal nights out, keep scrolling to shop the ultimate capital-inspired capsule.
Co-ords always make an appearance come autumn (we have a hunch it's because they made getting ready in the darker mornings easier). Instead of matchy two-pieces, take the colour-block approach by wearing a knitted top with a skirt in a similar hue.
Before we're completely relegated to boots, we thought we'd take a moment to appreciate these beauties. Bottega Veneta's mesh heels have sparked a bit of a movement on the high-street shoe scene, so it's best to get your fix now before frostbite becomes a very real setback.

Fashion's obsession with logos has gravitated from belt buckles to the handbag canvas, with Dior's options proving the most iconic in the capital. That said, you needn't break the bank to try out the trend.
