30 Autumnal Buys From Mango, & Other Stories and H&M That Are Pure Greatness

Before you even think about it, stop. Don't waste your lunch break scrolling through clothes sites, and definitely do not spend your weekend in a shopping centre. Your time is valuable, and should be treated as such, so rather than the prospect of you sifting through 500 pages of new-in clothes and accessories, I've done the hard work for you. 

It felt like last winter lasted an age and summer has passed in the blink of an eye, but now juggling what to wear in the unpredictable in-between is at the forefront of our minds. Wondering at what point we fully commit to boot season? Are we reverting back to jeans or still confidently baring legs? And, most importantly, can we brave the autumn in a summer dress without having to bring a jacket? Either way, it's clear we're looking forward to a consistently cosier season ahead, and at this point, can you really blame us?

Building our autumn wardrobes is always an exciting prospect, but rather than prematurely racing to stock up on stripey knits and fur coats, I decided to give this autumn some very special thought. At Who What Wear we're all about finding the best investment buys that you'll happily wear on repeat, and one way to assure that is to hunt down quality pieces that look more expensive than they actually are (it's just that no-one else needs to know that). Having searched through all of the very best that this season has to offer, I found three standout shopping destinations that will tick all of your boxes, and it just so happens that they're some of the high-street's very best: Mango, H&M and & Other Stories. If you're looking for designer looking dresses, versatile separates and luxe accessories, look no further. The big three are putting out premium edits that are elevating high street offerings to a whole new level. 

So, from Mango's trending jackets to & Other Stories exceptional dresses, keep scrolling for 30 brand new pieces that I'm confident you're going to really love. How's that for saving you some serious shopping time?

Sure, there may be spells of sun outside, but over at Mango, the cosy-season is so close you can almost touch it. As we edge towards the cooler months, you're going to need a couple of practical coats and jackets for everything that the Great British weather has to throw at you, and Mango are delivering in spades. This season expect elegant minimalism in a nod to the ‘90s, distressed leather and oversized silhouettes, and of course plenty of bags and shoes that look at least three times their price tag. 


Every wardrobe should have a classic camel trench coat. 

It's doesn't get more "of the moment" than an oversized bomber.

Good tailoring is invaluable–something that H&M know all too well. Their premium selection is full of the quality cashmere our editors have been buying in droves, but also the leather trousers and pull on separates that have even more versatility than a tee and jeans. Pair with the brand's accessible tailoring and sleek maxi skirts to make the most of the transitional weather, and should you finally be ready to retire your shorts and sandals for another year, check out the dress offering. They'll look just as good with boots as they do strappy sandals.


We love any piece of clothing that you can pull on and go, no fuss required.

It's all about the boxy silhouette of this great blazer. 

For maximum effect, wear with knee-high boots and the matching sleeveless top.

Want a bag that will go with everything? You found it.

Just when you thought H&M had nailed it with the bouclé jacket, they gave us this perfect cardigan too. 

This. Coat. Is. Exceptional.

Time to make plans, this skirt deserves to be seen. 

The perfect desk-to-dinner shoe.

It's all about clever fabrics at this time of year, and with a couple of easy purchases you can ensure your wardrobe fares well in the cooler moments until spring rolls around again. What better time to refresh your wardrobe than the later half of the year, and if you're looking for wardrobe staples like shirting, knitwear, and of course, plenty of denim, & Other Stories new-in section is for you. Alongside day and evening dresses and strappy sandals are comfy-casuals like cosy knitwear, stackable basics, and all-weather pieces that can be mixed and matched on rotation. 


This bag is one of the most discussed in the Who What Wear group chat. 

Sleek, chic, and a timeless classic. 

Calling all cosy queens, I've found your new favourite coat.
