This week it's noticeable that even though we're still enjoying the summer and the wonderfully light evenings, our favourite stores are starting to lean towards the autumn winter collections.
Despite this there's still some amazing summer pieces available on the high street for those long awaited vacations and of course some of them will be perfect to transition into those colder evenings too.
Here's what's new on the high street this week.

Saint Laurent vs Revolve
When it comes to the sleek and chic maxi dress Saint Laurent are the current reigning superstars. They're already best known for simplicity done at its finest so the column dress style they unveiled last season is a here to stay style. You'll find the classic look duped from mid tier brands to high street but this Revolve option that's double lined is a fantastic quality option.
Gucci vs COS
Every season a new blazer style comes back around and in place of the oversized styling, the cropped style is back with a bang. Gucci as always are making waves with their Pre Fall launches and as expected their outerwear is simply *chefs kiss*. Notably their wool blend cropped blazer with branded webbing is a stand out but if you're looking for a similar style that's far more affordable then opt for COS.
Tory Burch vs Mango
The tenniscore trend has been a highlight of the summer and of course Tory Burch do it oh so well. You can shop the full trend here including some versatile pieces from the brand here but the stand out is definitely the V neck vest. If you're worried the trend won't be around much longer then Mango has a drop shoulder option with the crisp navy / cream styling.
Saint Laurent vs Mango
We're always going to lust after Saint Laurent footwear and especially so when it comes to their heels. Their new season pieces always predictably stick around for years to come because not only are they so chic but because the quality is second to none. If your budget doesn't accommodate their Kiss slingbacks you'll find some great dupes at Mango in multiple shades.
L'Agence vs H&M
Denim can be a tough wardrobe addition to master unless the season is all over jeans in every way shape and form. When the newest denim trend feels a little far away from the easy to wear skinny or straight leg, a high street option feels far more accessible. The cargo denim seen all over social media is from mid tier L'Agence but H&M have a great dupe style in multiple washes.
Toteme vs H&M
The striped roll neck knit we saw everyone living in in late Spring was from iconic brand Toteme and it didn't matter which colourway we saw we wanted them both. Black on white or white on Black, the chunky knit is an easy staple and the best dupe we've seen so far of the relaunched for autumn winter piece is easily from H&M.
ACNE Studios vs COS
We're hoping the long denim skirt is here to stay into autumn winter and from what we're seeing so far on our favourite online retailers, it seems our wish may come true. The one update to the trend for the new season is the length and ACNE Studios have it down. Dark denim, back split and ankle length maxi - and if the price isn't right then COS have the perfect dupe.
