We might be enjoying a mini heatwave in the UK at the moment but, as we're just weeks away from officially entering autumn, we'll be looking to update our cosy knitwear very soon. © Provided by Red (UK) Boden's scalloped knitted jumper will get you through autumn.

Boden's stylish new scallop collar jumper is the perfect cover-up for chillier days, and we love its vibrant cherry red colour, which will see you through to the festive period too.

The jumper, priced at £95, features on-trend scalloped trims on its collar, neck and cuffs, making it a great everyday jumper for both work and weekends. It's knitted from pure merino wool, which is ultra-fine and has a soft feel, so it'll keep you warm, cosy and comfy without adding bulk to your silhouette. We'd style it with this season's wide-leg jeans for instant chic.
M&S shoppers go wild as the retailer unveils its new autumn collection
The British High Street retailer unveiled its new range today, and it's perfect for those looking to revamp their post-lockdown wardrobe while remaining in their comfort zone. This year has seen a move away from one hit wonder pieces (remember that pink oversized duster coat?) and celebrity favourites, which have historically driven customer demand but fuelled disappointment when items sold out, womenswear design director Jill Stanton told Grazia. Basic pieces have also been replaced by 'more compelling, colourful clothes', while anything with an elastic waist now 'flies out of store'.
Boden says of the knit: 'The naturally breathable yarns keep you comfortably cool when the sun comes out and cosy on chilly days. You can layer it up easily thanks to the half-button front.'

Jaeger's back and is full of quality clothes you'll love at M&S .
Just one year ago the iconic fashion house Jaeger collapsed into administration, leading to the closure of 63 stores and concessions nationwide. For 137 years it had dressed everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Kate Middleton. Part of British fashion had died. Then, in January this year, Marks & Spencer saved it and is now unveiling the brand's comeback collection.It's a fitting twist of history. Both companies started in 1884 and have been at the heart of the British High Street ever since. 1/4 SLIDES © Provided by Daily Mail Dress, £225, marksandspencer.com; shoes, £199, lkbennett.
