While the high-street has generally been in autumn mode since September, it would appear these three brands have been saving some of their best cold-weather pieces until now, which is handy, seeing as the temperatures plummeted this week.
It goes without saying that each of these brands has very different aesthetics, but that’s what makes them a joy to shop. After all, you don’t want to see the same pieces everywhere you go. True to its current form, H&M has mastered the art of minimalist dressing with its array of incredible knits and weighty tailoring. M&S has channelled its efforts into creating some of the best affordable dresses of the season (with equally stylish boots to match). As for Gap? I can always count on the brand to deliver the best basics in my wardrobe, but this collection also boasts bona fide fashion pieces that deserve their moment in the spotlight, too. That moment comes now.
