Whilst some may still be holding out hope for a final burst of summer weather, autumn is fast approaching, and the familiar chilly mornings, earlier sunsets and the sudden need to layer up will soon be returning.
An exciting part about entering a new season is the release of brand-new fashion and beauty trends – and for so many, nothing beats that time of year where you can wrap up warm!
September is the ultimate month to get ahead of the changes and restock your wardrobe with autumn/winter essentials – so what’s new at Atria Watford this season?

Layers and knitwear
From chunky knits to cosy cardigans, there’s a colour, size and shape for everyone at Atria Watford. We’re already seeing the return of the popular ‘shackets’ – which are ideal for adding a little extra warmth to your outfit when it’s not quite cold enough for a coat.
Keeping a collection of long-sleeved tops, thick cotton shirts and breathable roll necks in your drawer is key to being ready for all weathers. Start with the basics – white, black and nude – but build on the colours of autumn with bold oranges, deep greens and rich mustards.
Shop knitwear for all the family and brilliant basics at H&M, Zara and New Look to name a few.
Long live the loungewear
If you found a new love for loungewear in lockdown, autumn and winter are the perfect seasons to treat yourself to a new set or two. Shop luxe loungewear, soft cosy co-ords and comfy pyjamas at the likes of Primark, M&S and Next Beauty & Home.
Wrap up warm
It’s never too early to bag a new coat – especially as your calendar begins to fill up with Halloween, bonfire night and (dare we say it) Christmas events. If you love shopping for outerwear, you’ll find raincoats, puffer jackets, padded parkas, tailored camel coats, oversized teddy jackets and so much more at Superdry, Jack & Jones and Hollister.
Looking ahead slightly, it’ll soon be time to crack out the scarfs, hats and gloves for those icy commutes with a hot coffee in hand. Super affordable and easy to store away for when they’re needed, autumn/winter accessories are back for the foreseeable at retailers including Primark, Accessorize and River Island.
Dressing with denim
September is a great time to bring back the denim. You can style denim jeans, denim skirts and denim jackets with just about anything in autumn – and you can always add a little extra warmth with thermals if the temperature drops! Shop gorgeous denim pieces at Zara, Blue Inc, Fat Face and Jack Wills.
Step in to autumn
It’s time to stock up on suitable shoes for the little kids (and big kids) who love to splash about in puddles and trample through crunchy leaves. Whether you’re shopping for crisp afternoon walks in the park, or fresh workwear for your return to the office, there are plenty of styles and fits for you at Atria Watford. For all things footwear, visit schuh, Clarks, Office and Sketchers.
Get a golden glow
Move over summer – it’s time to pack away the sunscreen and reach for earthy eyeshadows, maple-coloured lipsticks and plum shades of nail polish. Not forgetting those hydrating face masks, hand creams, lip balms and facial SPF for autumn days where we see sunshine, torrential rain and bitter winds all within the hour! Shop the latest in beauty at Next Beauty & Home, MAC Cosmetics, LUSH and Boots.
You’re all set, now it’s only a matter of time before the return of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced range…
