If you feel you’ve been caught unawares by the change of season and you can’t think of any warmer items in your wardrobe that can replace the floaty dress and Birkenstocks you’ve been living in all summer, then we know just the place to go.

We’ve been trawling the digital rails at Marks & Spencer to find the key items to carry us through until spring rears its blossomed head, and we have found a collection of pieces we’re keen to add to our own hangers.

However, with online shopping less is often more – and that’s especially the case when your’e trying to put together a capsule wardrobe, so we’ve been strict with ourselves and narrowed it down to just eight key pieces to shop for autumn.

From comfy trainers to a super-soft funnel neck jumper and a Holly Willoughby-approved pair of jeans, you needn’t look anywhere else for your autumn staples this year.

8 affordable M&S favourites to shop for autumn

Cotton Funnel Neck Fitted Long Sleeve Top | £9.50

Not only are funnel neck tops flattering, they’re also the perfect middle-ground between a polo neck and a V-neck - keeping you warm and snug, but not leaving you constantly yanking down the material at your neck.

Lace Up Trainers | £19.50

A pair of white lace-up trainers is an essential wardrobe staple all year round, and these ones are a steal at under £20.

Ivy High Waisted Distressed Skinny Jeans | £25

Available in sizes 6 through to 22, and in all sorts of leg length, these versatile distressed jeans offer a flattering silhouette.

Cotton Long Sleeve Hoodie | £22.50

If you thought hoodies were just for university students, think again. Some of Instagram’s most coveted fashion-forward influencers have added the humble hoodie to their wardrobes and are proving they can be worn with style.

Jersey Floral Midi Skater Skirt | £25

This jersey skater skirt will add a touch of floral prettiness to your autumn wardrobe, plus - the elasticated waist means it’s the perfect piece in which to enjoy a Sunday roast.

The rose-print also comes in a midi dress, which is already proving to be popular. Pair with tights, ankle boots and a cashmere cardi for a chic day look.

Thermowarmth™ Quilted Puffer Jacket | £35

Nobody should be without a puffer jacket in the colder months and this one will keep you completely snug, without looking like a marshmallow.

Nobody’s Child Floral Midi Smock Dress | £35

M&S recently chose Nobody’s Child to be the first guest fashion brand stocked on its website and the collection is already proving popular. With stylish silhouettes and affordable prices, we’re sure the brand’s range of midi dresses under £40 won’t be around for long.

Suede Chelsea Block Heel Ankle Boots | £29.50

A black ankle boot is an autumn/winter staple year in and year out. This affordable pair are a great pick for work or play, with an elasticated panel that makes them easy to slip on and off.
