We really do hate to say it, but it's time to start thinking about attire for the colder seasons.
Bearing more bad news; not only do we need to think about staying warm, but as autumn draws nearer it's important we stay dry too, because puddles and pumps don't mix well.
Unless you're regularly outdoors you aren't always going to be in your wellies, but it's an investment well worth it for the times you may need them. Popular wellies come from the footwear specialists Hunter, there's also a range of affordable options available at Amazon.
We've rounded up some of the top options to add to your autumn/winter wardrobe now.
