Mourning the demise of summer already? Us too sister. Really, though, there is plenty to be cheerful about, because the imminent start of autumn brings it with exciting new additions to our wardrobes and makeup bags, as chunky knits, cosy scarves and dark red lipsticks that match the wine in our glasses (top up please!) make their triumphant comebacks.
There’s still hope yet that August will give us a suprise sizzling hot finale before bowing out, but while it makes up its mind, take a gander at some of our favourite cardigans from across the online shopping universe.
