The August bank holiday has been and gone, and while this may mark the symbolic end of summer, I’m brimming with excitement for the season ahead. The spectrum of red, orange and yellow leaves that will soon blanket the parks, the dinner parties that start to replace barbecues in the diary, and of course the return of TV favourites such as Bake Off. After a humid few months, I’m even looking forward to the impending chill in the air! The dropping temperature equals investment purchases ahead – coats, cashmere and boots among them. Fortunately the Style & Living team is here to help you navigate the season’s updates. From fashion to food, flowers and beauty, be sure to visit regularly for the latest from our team of expert editors. Here’s to an awesome autumn!
