ALTHOUGH the sun is still trying to warm us up, there is no escaping the chill in the air. It's best to be prepared for another cold Autumn with the latest fashions, from knit-wear to wellies.

Just because we're all wrapped up doesn't mean we have to hide away our best features; we're beautiful beneath those layers. So show yourself off with the stunning navy and orange Colour Block Dress from Dorothy Perkins, for £35. This is definitely an Autumn treat, and if you don't fancy pumpkin orange (don't forget, it IS nearly Halloween!) then you can always go for the black and white instead, for the same price. You might look cool, but you won't feel it when you're all snug and warm in this gorgeous dress.

Maybe you're one of those girls who just can't wait for Summer to be over so that you can bring out the jumpers again. Well then, Christmas has come a few months early for you on the High Street. Peacocks are doing a range of jumpers that will keep you cosy right through to Winter. The Stripe Crew Neck Jumper, for £18, will make sure you stay toasty with long sleeves and a high cut neck. If you want that bit of extra protection from the biting Autumn winds, then why not invest in the Multi Strip Polo Neck Jumper, again for just £18.

For those of us who aren't so brave, it's time to say goodbye to skirts and shorts and hello to trousers and leggings. Or both, as is the case with the Berry Treggings from Dorothy Perkins, for £18. A long jumper or a knitted-dress would go perfectly with these, and they will keep your legs just that little bit warmer than tights will. Although beware; the lovely berry red will put you in that Christmassy mood.

Now, you either love them or you hate them, but they are usually necessary; wellies. So whether you like them or not it's probably best to grab yourself a pair. The Hunter Original Wellies from Office come in a vast selection of colours, ranging from candypink to aubergine and black, all between £62-79. If that's a bit above your price range, then take a look at the equally as stylish Spot Print Wellington from Matalan, for just £12.

So there you go; there are many ways to look gorgeous this Autumn. Who said we needed the sun to shine?
