It’s the most wonderful time of the year! There'll be parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting – and Autumn/Winter sale items to snap up tout de suite.

Boy, oh boy: You can bet we’ve had this bookmark ready in our diaries since the season began, and with so many great pieces still in stock (much to our disbelief), our wish lists are far from modest…

But what do we need most, begs the question? It’s a well-known fact that one can never have too many pairs of earrings; ergo, sculptural and drop styles from Lizzie Fortunato and Marni make for wonderful ‘stocking fillers’ to add a little panache to your daily fare. Meanwhile in the accessories department, Staud’s pastel satin tote and Jacquemus’ microscopic bucket bag both make strong cases for why the same (more is more) mantra should be applied to bags too… We have two hands for a reason!

Then there’s the party looks; the 9-’til-5 (make that 6pm, Dolly!) looks; and the looks that we just couldn’t possibly go without. Said styles land from Hillier Bartley (a metallic silk-satin dress springs to mind) and Self-Portrait with a floral-print midi, which could double-up for summer wear. Elsewhere, tailoring from Racil and sharp separates from Etro are our frontrunners for making working hours all the more fun, while a colour-blocked Crepe de Chine dress via Mary Katrantzou and a crystal-embellished faux fur coat from Shrimps arrive as wear-me-everywhere ensembles we’d be foolish to let go.

It's first come, first served! Waste no time in making these stylish steals yours:
