There's something special about autumnal fashion that we can't quite put our finger on, but every year as the season rolls around, we're quite happy to surrender our summer dresses to storage if it means being able to slip into a cosy mohair knit and knee-high boot. Although the steadily advancing nights are a reminder that the coldest and darkest weather is yet to come, it's time to focus on something a little more pressing. The autumn/winter collections have arrived, and with them comes the fresh excitement of a stylish season ahead. And right now, there's nowhere better to turn to than NET-A-PORTER, our go-to for the best mix of timeless investment buys and straight-from-the-runway gems.

While we might have spent our summer refining our wardrobes into a concise capsule of functional pieces, autumn and winter are the time to go all out. (Clever layering means more pieces, right?) In the run-up to what we predict will be a big party season, there's a lot to get excited about.
In a bid to help you find the best in a particularly good bunch of collections, we've scrolled through nearly 3000 items in NET-A-PORTER's new-season shop to bring you the pieces we think you'll truly love. Expect plenty of warm knit dresses, snuggly coats and of course, the head-turning party shoes and accessories that NET-A-PORTER is known for. So keep scrolling for the new-season must-haves we're adding to our wish lists ASAP.
Imagine all the best bits of a striped knit, a midi dress and a sharp, monochrome colour palette all rolled into one.
This one is for you Skims sceptics. Not only are the brand's dresses going viral on TikTok, but they come Who What Wear–approved for their unbeatable comfort and affordable price point. Layer up with soft knits and an oversized coat for a comfy outfit that still looks put together.
The cream cable-knit deserves a place in the fashion hall of fame for its longevity. We've been wearing them for as long as we can remember, and it's a good sign that there's plenty of life still left in them.
Boxy tailoring is a key trend right now, so expect all of the new season's blazers and trousers to be oversized and loosely cut.
Cinderella, you shall go to the ball—and the birthday, the Christmas party and the new-year celebration. These spectacular pumps are the epitome of cocktail dressing and are the only thing you'll want to be seen in at the stroke of midnight.
