Stepping Into Autumn

Now that the clocks have gone back, our evenings are getting darker and there’s a blanket of crunchy leaves on the ground, it’s probably time we started to think that little bit cosier… Being toasty and warm over the colder seasons is an absolute must, so if you’re still shivering in your winter jacket, now’s the time for an update.

A seasonal change to your wardrobe and decor doesn’t need to set you back a tonne or impact your Christmas budget, there are affordable tweaks you can make to cross seasons in style and without a hitch. We’ve rounded up the best deals in fashion and home decor, so take a look and treat yourself – we’ll have you feeling snuggly in no time…

Wrap Cardigans are the new big thing: Perfect for layering over your leftover summer garments, these blanket-esque beauties are the key to transitioning your look. We love this Mela Brown Knit Aztec Print Fringed Cardigan from New Look, which is a bargain at only £30. Belt it, stick on a brooch, dress up jeans and a tee or dress down a cocktail dress. Keep an eye on our New Look merchant page for codes and offers, and remember, there’s 10% off for students!

Others we like: F&F Checked Colour Block Wrap £16 (Save £10 when you spend more than £50 using AUTUMN10) and the Brooke Aztec Trim Laguna Cape Cardigan £20 at Boohoo (Currently 24% off all Knitwear, Coats and Jackets using ITSAWRAP)

Cosy up with a candle: Scenty things for the house can seem like an unnecessary expense, especially when you’re gearing up for Christmas. But a little flame flickering on the coffee table can make all the difference as the nights draw in. Shut those curtains, curl up and light this Wax Lyrical Scented Wax Filled Candle Tin in Vanilla & Cinnamon for just £5 at Boots – you’ll be feeling cozy as in no time at all. Part of the 3 for 2 on Gifts and Toys promotion, you can snap up a present for you too while you’re out doing the Christmas shopping, and don’t forget to collect those points on your Advantage Card! Take a look at our Boots merchant page for more codes and offers.

Other scents available: Wax Lyrical Scented Wax Filled Candle Tin in Fig & Plum and Wax Lyrical RHS Scented Wax Filled Tin in Lavender.

Keep the noggin warm: Your dear old mum wasn’t making it up – you lose a tonne of heat through that head of yours. Trap it all in and channel your inner Anna Karenina with this F&F Faux Fur Cossack Hat for £12. It comes in four different shades to suit any complexion and remember, if you’re spending a bit you can save £10 when you spend more than £50 using the code AUTUMN10. You can also Click+Collect from your local Tesco store, and if you order before 3pm it’ll be waiting for you the next day! Bookmark our Tesco merchant page so you’ll be sure not to miss out on any upcoming offers or codes.

Quality sofa time is key: Sure, sometimes its necessary to be out and about during the winter months, but wouldn’t we all rather be cuddled up at home on the sofa with a mug of hot cocoa (or maybe Mulled Wine)? A good throw gives a tired sofa a facelift for a relatively tiny price, and it can give you that extra layer if the heating’s not quite cutting it. We love this Orange Multi Weave Throw from Next. It’s £30, thick and wooly, and that orange colour is *so* Autumn. Order before midnight for free collection in store the next day, and you can also save £20 if you refer a friend to Next – nice! Check out our Next page for more details.

Want the set?: Orange Multi Weave Cushion £16.
