celebrity stylist Mark Heyes gives advice on how to style yourself in autumnWe are a nation of shopaholics: As soon as the season changes, we are on the high street shopping ‘til we drop. We are hunting for new trends, bargains and often come home with items that we will never wear.

The new Comfort Bright’s campaign is all about getting women to think more about what they buy and to help help them spend less on clothes and think about quality rather than quantity, they have teamed up with celebrity stylist Mark Heyes, who has come up with five fabulous tips to help make your wardrobe transcend the seasons.

Mark says: ‘People should be making smarter decisions about their clothes. Our unpredictable UK weather means that seasonal fashion is becoming obsolete, so we need to be thinking more carefully about investment pieces that can see us throughout the different seasons.”

‘Between-season dressing is all about knowing what to wear and when, learning to layer and good little styling tricks. Designers are now pretty clever in the way they create trends that work across different seasons, which means you can buy something in December that you can work a look with in July.’

Comfort Brights – a fabric conditioner specifically designed to help keep your colours and whites brighter and more vibrant – is on a mission to get the nation thinking ‘trans-season’ when it comes to their fashion behaviour and here are their top 5 tips for your trans-seasonal wardrobe:

1.      Minimalist approach. Between-season dressing can be tricky; it’s hard to commit to new season trends when there’s a (small) chance of sunshine.  Take a minimalist approach by choosing light, key pieces in beautiful colours and natural fabrics. And go pared-back with styling – just perfect for layering.

2.      Breathe new life. Get creative and rework your existing clothes and accessories. Think about making a sleeveless top or cutting off those old jeans to make some cute summer shorts.

3.      Be a savvy shopper. Visualise what you already have in your wardrobe and work out what you’ll wear your clothes with and when. For example, a crisp white shirt is a brilliant staple that can be worn in a hundred different ways through summer as well as winter. We’re also very lucky this year as florals will be super fashionable throughout summer, autumn and into the winter!

4.      Care for you clothes as you would your skin or hair. Clothes are made to last, and they absolutely can through every season. But to do this they really need looking after. Give them a bit of TLC by using Comfort Brights fabric conditioner – it will help keep your bold colours bright and your whites super white; that way they’ll stay looking newer and fresher for longer.

5.      Layer up. The art of layering is easy when you know what fabrics to aim for. Lace is the real hero for in between season dressing; it can be sweet and romantic, or sexy and dramatic for a different looks for all seasons.

Best advise of all, is be comfortable in the way you look and your confidence will make you look better!

    Gilets are fab for cooler days and go with almost anything! They particularly look great with jersey maxi dresses which are also great for Autumn!
    A Wrap or Pashmina shawl are also great for covering up the arms on cooler days!
    Autumnal colours such as orange, brown and grey look warm together and make you feel warm.

  9. Alison Joyce says

    1) Layering – get cardis/shirts to wear over summer tops and dress and long sleeve tops to wear underneath summer tops and stretch your summer wardrobe out a bit longer
    2) invest in some nice chunky ankle boots which will go with jeans or dresses
    3) Don’t be afraid of colour, you don’t have to wear dark colours just because the suns gone away.

    1. Don’t rush out and buy now, just window shop and get a feel for the trend

    3. Look around for value for money and start going through last years pieces to see if anything is still a go go or a big no no

  16. lorna kennedy says

    wear deep colours like burgendy and deep purple, try using 2 in 1 clothes such as a coatigan if you dont like wearing to many clothes and winter clothes dont always mean you have to wear loose baggy clothes

    1. Wear delicious warm colours that suit you
    2. Have a funky bright coloured bag that sets you apart from everyone else
    3. Embrace the autumnal season, be happy, a smile is the best accessories anyone can have!

  29. JO JONES says

    Have basics to build on. Buy what suits you, & not what is simply on trend. Utilise sales to bag a bargain but ensure it fits in with your existing wardrobe or can you organise some swishing with friends or family.

  30. Fiona K says

    Wear warm autumnal colours like crimson, browns and golds and be bold with plummy lipsticks and a bit of blusher to prevent the cold,pale look.

  31. Jodie Jaye says

    A light patterned scarf can be a great extra layer if it gets cold, but not too heavy if warm. It can also add a nice print to your outfit if you are not that confident in wearing them.

  32. Sandra Stitchell says

    I am a great believer in layering, as you can take off and put on depending on weather. It can see you through from Summer to Autumn very easily.

    Buying one statement piece and wearing with a few cheaper pieces can look great.

    A plain outfit can be dressed up with a few accessories and made to look stunning.

  33. Rae Jackson says

    1. Use autumnal colours in your make up
    2. Long wool skirts and boots
    3. ALWAYS match your scarves and gloves!

    Gorgeous site Mummy Alarm!

  34. says

    I am useless at fashion, I look at the models in the shop wearing the gorgeous trends, put them on and they either hand like sacks, or make me look like I am trying to hard to be young. So Autumn is my comfort zone! I can hide my milk bottle legs again yay!

    I go for flowing cardies, loose fitting scarves and pretty boots. It means if its a warm autumn day you can lose the cardi and scarf, and on days where its chilly you are thankful they are there.

    I also love maroons, browns and golden colours that match the leaves, so feels very seasonal.

  35. Sharon Griffin says

    The lovely autumnal hue of nature can be reflected in fashion and i love to dress in the berry, golden and deep green colours that make a nice change from the summers pastel colours x

  36. Lindy Hine says

  39. Samantha Fenn says

    1. Layer up – then as the weather changes so can your look
    2. Get a jacket. Its not a good look looking like you’re freezing whilst waiting for it to be worth while buying a coat.
    3. Don’t be afraid to wear colour! Dull weather does not mean Dull You

  40. Rebecca Maddocks says

    1) invest in some good leather flat boots with a grip but don’t compromise on fashion, there are loads on the high street that look fab but practical!

    2) a decent coat that will see you through the winter, that will go with everything.

    3) dress for your shape and don’t be tempted to squeeze into a smaller size just so you can say I’m a size…, wearing the correct size actually looks more slimming IMO.

  41. Kate O'Neill says

    Pick a palette and stick to it, invest in a good quality pair of knee high boots (that you can actually walk in!) and ring the changes using scarves and jewellery.

  42. kirsty l says

    1. but t shirts and long sleeved tops in different colours and add different necklaces to change an outfit instantly
    2. buy a classic coat as they wont go out of fashion
    3. invest in good jeans for the winter and team with cute jumpers

  43. Hilda Hazel wright says

    Scarves and shawls are a great layer, around your neck to look beautiful or draped over your shoulders if you get a bit chilly.

    • Hilda Hazel wright says

      Sorry, I didn’t read it properly so I only left 1 tip! So 2 more…charity shops are great for picking up more unique items and having a bit more variety in your wardrobe if you don’t have much money AND finally if you buy things that suit you and that you really love rather than just things that are in fashion they should still be with you in years to come.

  44. Megan Adams says

    1. Neutral colours are great and slimming.
    2. Scarfs can help glam up a neutral outfit.
    3. Boots are a must :-)

  45. Debra says

    Always wear the right size, you may think you are a 14 but if you are a 16 and you wear that you will actually look thinner. As all the lumps and bulges do not show.

  46. Jo Wakefield says

    Wear colours that suit you, not just because they’re in fashion.
    Layers are perfect for the autumn as the weather is changeable.
    Try to buy a couple of outfits you can mix and match.

  47. Dawn F says

    Ok, top three for this autumn:

    1) Layer linen print scarves for warmth and to add colour
    2) Wear warm colours like berry, plum and wine
    3) Bretton tops (black and white stripe) look good with a pair of jeans

  48. Karen Barrett says

    One statement piece, I’m not a lover of following the fashion season fads on colours because most don’t suit me. I’m going to buy a long grey military style coat and team it with black biker boots and a massive black hanbag. I love bags and footwear matching, call me old fashioned! Thanks

  49. Conrad Edwards says

    Layer as the weather can change abruptly, golds and burned reds tie in with the trees, and stylish boots keep you warm as well as being trendy.

  50. Gemma Kitchener says

    1. Buy a couple of hat/scarf sets in different colours so you have ones to accessorize with different outfits.

    2. I love wearing autumn colours to fit with the season; rich reds and dark oranges. Lovely warm colours.

    3. Brighten up any autumn outfit with some lovely colourful tights. Cheers anybody up on a drizzly autumn day :)

    Buy some pretty cardigans to kep you warm and layer up!

    Choose nice earthy colours like browns, dark greens, dark reds and purples!

    And buy nice scarves and hats and gloves to keep you warm!

    Also have some nice warm boots!

  53. Tammy Tudor says

    1. Don’t be afraid to style out your summer wardrobe with added tights and coats
    2. Embrace your figure and forget the size wear what fits (cut out the label if you really care that much) forget about it :)
    3. Animal print is always in so match animal print with simple accessories

  54. says

    1. Buy lots of opaque tights – LOADS. In lots of different colours. Wear them with dresses and boots, and that’s lots of autumn outfits sorted.

    2. Dig out your old coats and get them dry cleaned. If you choose classic coats in colours and styles that suit you, you’ll get years of wear out of them.

    3. Buy what you love early on – I don’t know why, but it feels more special to buy things you love early on in autumn rather than when you’re scrabbling about desperate for autumn and winter clothes in December.

  58. Ali Thorpe says

    Start to move your wardrobe over to earthier colours which compliment the season; look for clothes which you can wear with both summer accessories and shoes (for the warmer days) and winter ones, for when it’s cooler (I find many dresses are fab for this); and, if you use it, lay off the fake tan as the weather cools as in colder weather, it tends to look like exactly that: fake! xxx

  59. Julie E Henderson says

    dont wear pastels
    keep makeup similar tomes
    always have a stylish cardi or coat as it cooler than it looks

  61. Pinkoddy says

    Get a good pair of jeans that can be worn smart with heels or casual with flats all year round.

  67. Isabel O'Brien says

    3) Thick tights. Bright colours. Great with ankle or knee high boots. Orange and Red are my favorite.

  90. michelle bennett says

    -Save money by buying neutral colours which tend to be cheaper. Jazz them up using colours that are in trend via jewellery, scarves etc.
    -Buy winter clothes during summer and summer during winter- or as close to as you can. Winter trends come out 2-3 months before winter has even started. Buying early means your not just grabbing anything of the hanger because all the nicer bits are gone and these clothes are often cheaper than buying in season.
    -Those pretty colourful clothes still look great in winter and brighten things up. Team a summery dress with thick tights and boots they look just as good as a dress with sandals. Short sleeved blouses can be teamed with a long sleeved shirt and open or closed looks fab with a pair of jeans for a rock chic/grungy type of look.

  94. Helen Moulden says

    1) Wear tights (it’s cold!)
    2) Try muted colours like forest green, and plum
    3) Invest in a good winter coat that will last you a number of seasons!

  95. Alison Wedge says

    1. Layer up with lighter layers so on those rare occassions when the sun comes out you don’t get too warm in big heavy jumpers and bulky coats!
    2. Invest in good quality boots that will last you more than a few months! Good boots are not cheap (unless they’re sale bargins) and cheap boots aren’t good!

  101. Rachel Craig says

    Be practical, prepare for the cooler weather. Whist remembering the weather can be changeable. Also likely to visit varying enviroments , which may well vary in temperature.

    For the above reasons I tend to wear layers in the autumn which I can change as /when required. A bag is useful for storage. I like to have a warm waterproof jacket which has a hood (which is comfortable and secure when put on my head. As well as safe and practical i.e. with hood up I can see clearly to cross the road safely etc). Nice comfortable, stylish boots with a good quality sole (good grip for autumn / winter weather conditions ).

  102. p millington says

    1. bear in mind that Autumn can be warm as well as cold.
    2. treggings and long tops or short dreses for inbetween days.
    3. a good raincoat that goes with your key colours.

  103. christy beckett says

    Buy a nice good quality jacket, dress it up with scarves or brooches
    Boots, anckle or mid length
    Thick socks, nothing worse than cold feet.

  104. Maria Turner says

    If you see something you like, don’t think “I’ll that later” – it WILL be gone
    Buy more classic styles in good quality so they wear well and last – accessories can be changed to update a classic style so easily
    Dress for the weather – nothing looks more silly than someone dressed like its a hit summers day when its cold, or all bundled up and Ugg boots when its hot – FACT!

  105. Caroline Scott says

    1: layering is key, make sure you have lots of easily removable layers to cope with changes in temperature
    2: quality real wool items will keep you warm without the sticky sweating you find with synthetic materials
    3: boots – a pair of knee-high leather boots works well with trousers and skirts and keeps feet dry and warm

  106. Annie Costa says

    1) Jazz up an outfit with accessories (Owls,or something…)
    2) Wear a scarf to look tres chic

  108. tracey gibbons says

    nice thick tights, dont have to be plain you can get some great patterned ones, which jazz up a plain outfit
    nice long boots are a must in the winter
    chunky cardigan is a must for nice walks

  109. shelley stevenson says

    1) First and most important tip is always wear something u feel comfortable in. No point trying to make a trend work for you if you feel awkward and uncomfortable in whatever youre wearing! .. 2)I love teaming chunky cosy jumpers with knitted tights when the colder weather comes in. Looks great and i feel good wearing it. 3) Use statement jewellery to really vamp up an outfit. Amazing how a few key pieces can really transform a rather dull outfit

  110. Emma Cella says

    skater dresses and heeled ankle booties! you can wear them throughout the year, in warm weather or cold.

  111. says

    Its worth keeping a few of your summer dresses out, you’ll be surprised how many look just as good teamed up with thick tights, a slouchy knit cardy and boots ready for the winter!
    If you find a good pair of comfy winter boots, buy 2 pairs (if money isn’t short!)
    If your outfit is depressing you due to the autumnal dull colours, brighten it up with some nail polish.. it will remind you that summer is only round the corner!

    A good pair of boots with decent heel… Suitable for wet/dry

    And a well cut pair of skinny jeans…. Can always be dressed up or down, depending on occasion!

  116. Faye Huntington says

    1) Don’t expose a load of skin when it is cleaaarly too cold to do so (!)
    2) Dark clothes are best for the season, a pop of colour is great – you don’t need to go head-to-toe colour though
    3) Experiment with your nail colours.. when your clothes are darker and the weather is darker.. it is a nice surprise to see bright nails!

    With love, Faye xx

    1) A good pair of brown (very Autumnal colour!!) leather boots. They can be worn with or without tights on warm/cooler days and still look great!
    2) A brightly coloured oversized scarf/Pashmina which can be worn instead of a coat.
    3) A beautiful thick woolen cardigan that will keep you warm when it is cold and you can wear open when it is a little warmer.

    Clothes that compliment each other, can be used for day or night by adding extra accessories. complimentary colours that suit your skin tone
