The shopping part of my brain (left or right, maybe all) is going into overdrive. Autumn is my favourite season, and the slightest hint of rain during summer is enough to get all engines fired up and thinking about what's new. Lately, I've been thinking about what's cosier than a skimpy cotton dress and what's going to pep up my wardrobe for the following six months or so.

I'm not quite at the stage where I'm thinking about full winter coats (although this is technically the time of year they start to sell out), but I'm open to the idea of a new knit, a different trench or a pair of ankle boots, and the new-in drops from our favourite brands and retailers are providing me with a banquet of wish listing options.

From fresh designer pieces streaming in at Net a Porter, Browns Fashion, MyTheresa and Harvey Nichols to the hottest items hiding amongst the sales dregs at Topshop, ASOS and Arket, I've trawled everything to bring you an edit of the very best. Keep scrolling for the new-in August shopping picks I have my eye on.

Ever since last winter, I've been looking for the perfect scrumper (aka scarf-jumper).

All kinds of '90s adorableness wrapped up into one bag.

Marks & Spencer strikes again with a winning suede skirt.

I've been eyeing up Hayley's incredible knitwear for some time now.

Just wow. I can't believe these are high street.

This dress is supposedly "coming soon." If that could happen a little quicker, that'd be great. Thanks, Zara!

I wear gold hoops pretty much every day, so the collection can welcome another pair.

This colour is so punchy that you'll always feel powerful wearing it.

May as well get the whole suit.

A very sophisticated little bag for not very much money.

Neous is one of our favourite shoe brands, and its new sandals are TDF.

This ASOS dress is trending and probably not going to stay around for long.

Miaou's denim fits really well around curves, and I'm feeling leopard print again.

Never too soon to buy sequins.

This stretchy dress sold out a couple of times in the summer (in beige and black), and now it's back in bronze.

Warehouse's bikinis and swimsuits have a good rep among fashion editors.

Square necks are where it's at. This jumper also comes in burgundy, and I'd like both, please.

We're feeling long pendant necklaces again. That '70s vibe is coming through for A/W 19.

This might just be the year I'm converted into a cowboy-boot wearer.

Everyone in the office has fallen for this. 

I may not be brave enough to wear the matching hat, but how great is this dress?

The Row's cult sandals are now arriving in new shades, like this ultra-chic pale grey.

A new crafty handbag brand I'd like to share with you.

Layer over jeans, leather trousers, skirts and dresses. This is the versatile wardrobe item you never knew you needed.

Biodegradable and in the oval shape I'm really into rn? Count me in.

Next up, what's happening in the world of Instagram outfits.
