Autumn is on the horizon and the new drops are already on the rails waiting to be snapped up. We've been itching to get our hands on the new collections and master the latest trends, so imagine our delight when we discovered the Tu designers at Sainsbury's have done all of the hard work for us!
This is a Marie Claire Advertorial
The latest Enchanted collection offers everything you need to build a brand new seasonal wardrobe on a budget and who doesn’t want that? From fairytale florals, forest shades and quirky prints mixed with chunky knits and cape-style shapes, say hello to a seamless mix of style and comfort for autumn.
The easiest way to tap into the trend is to work interesting prints like woodland creatures, moody florals and checkered prints into your wardrobe. Shape-wise, update your look with voluminous full skirts and oversized knits to stay warm as the temperatures drop.
Our hero piece from the collection is the must-have bright duffel coat, the perfect number to complete your off-duty wardrobe. Fling it over a floaty floral number and let your hair be a little unruly to give an edge to your look. In need of some accessories inspiration? Dial up this look with ankle socks and boyish brogues for a daytime date or opt for a chunky boot and opaque tights for a tougher feel.
Looking for chic ways to cover up and stay cosy? The new collection at Tu is a breath of fresh air to any wardrobe in need of an autumn update. Build your look around gem-encrusted knits and stylish capes for a romantic weekend away.
Another key piece in the Enchanted collection is patchwork denim. A little daunting we know, but after being spotted on the catwalks at Tom Ford, Moschino and Marc by Marc Jacobs AW15 collections, it’s got the designer stamp of approval. We’ll be rocking it through to winter with simple knits for a cool, casual look.
Too much of a statement? Work your wardrobe around feminine touches, like lace and florals. ‘Florals aren’t just for spring,’ says Marie Claire Runway’s Junior Editor Caroline Leaper. ‘With moodier blooms and darker colours, the look gets an ethereal update for autumn. Look to Tu’s lace pieces, too, to complete the enchanted vibe.’
