Feeling the chill in the air? All signs are starting to point directly towards autumn, and although we’ll mourn the loss of lazy, long evenings, dinners on the patio and the ability to develop a decent tan in the space of a few hours, we are ready to get back to the shops and start picking out our cooler-weather wardrobe.
The first stop on our list? Next, thanks to the arrival of Emma Willis’ new collection with the store. The Big Brother presenter and mum-of-three has curated a selection of pieces for the upcoming season, and from statement coats to staple denim, it’s packed with must-buy pieces.
As for Emma’s favourites? ‘The pyjama sets! I’m so happy with them,’ she told the brand. ‘And there are a lot of coats that I love in the edit – the leopard print one especially.’
‘I also really like the pinstriped suit and the cords are a really great transition piece – chilled for daytime but you can dress them up for dinner too. I love all the pieces really, that’s why I picked them!

Animal print is everywhere on the high street at the moment, but a coat is an investment that will stay wearable long after the trend wanes. Style with a white shirt and tailored trousers for the office, and a slogan-tee and red lip for the weekend.
What could possibly say cosy autumn evening more than a great set of PJs? We love the pink and print on these so much we’d even consider using the shirt as daywear.
Block print + chunky knit = a big tick for this season, and that’s before we even mention the balloon sleeve detail. With a price tag that low, we predict that this won’t stay until stock for long.
Denim gets a terracotta makeover in this throw-on anytime jacket. Don’t worry, it’ll still go with your blue jeans, as Emma proves.
Will ankle boots for autumn ever go out of style? Short answer: no. This pair are particularly wearable, with a mid-heel and special padding to make them just as comfy as they are chic.
