Things to buy now (that you can still wear in October)

Wear now *and* later

We couldn’t tell you the first thing about Bitcoin, but we do know a few wardrobe investments you should look into. From midi dresses that’ll look great with boots in September to a grownup rain jacket that’ll make your mum proud, we’ve nailed down 9 key pieces that work for now, and the colder months ahead. Get them before they’re sold out!


Midi is that Goldilocks length that’s just right for those awkward months between seasons, especially when there are long sleeves involved. This square polka dot midi dress will work all year round.

We’re very into these wide-leg trousers right now. Wear with a basic cami while the temperatures are still hitting the 20s, layer with an oversized blazer in September and throw on a chunky roll neck come December. Seasonless.

If you’re anything like us, post-summer dressing mostly involves alternating between a midi skirt and the same pair of jeans, over and over. This year, we’re planning on living in these…

As much as we still love a leopard print midi skirt, this year, we’re excited to try a few different prints. First on our list is this chain print midi from AX Paris.

The puff-sleeve dominated every top and dress this summer and the trend doesn’t look to slow down next season. We’re investing in this dusty pink victorian style peplum top. Wearing with jean shorts now, pairing with faux leather trousers later.

The jumpsuit is the ultimate in transitional dressing. This wide-leg has made it into our shopping cart because we can style it for the office but it’s still cool enough to wear after hours.

Buying a rain coat is a bit like shopping for toiletries – practical, but not very fun. Cue this yellow rain jacket from Lily Lulu Fashion. Not only is it way cuter than a black/navy option, it’s only £30 in the sale right now.

Safe to say, it’s been way too muggy for a chunky ankle boot this summer. But now the sun appears to be dialling it down, we’re happy to welcome boots back into our lives. Particularly these ones. We’re pairing with tea dresses for now, and swapping out for midi dresses or jeans next season.
