Fashion week is just around the corner, the September issues are on newsstands and back to school adverts are playing on every TV channel. This can only mean one thing: summer is almost over. If you’re starting to get that end-of-season wardrobe panic – when jersey maxi dresses have lost all their appeal but chunky knits feel premature – it may be time to go shopping for some wardrobe boosters.

The above buys will fit seamlessly into any wardrobe, and can be worn throughout Autumn/Winter. I’d wear the floral Elizabeth and James shirt with Topshop’s longline blazer, a pair of cropped jeans or trousers and classic, pointed-toe pumps. Instant cool! Carven’s lace pencil skirt is also on my must-have list, as it will work for formal occasions and can also be toned down with a T-shirt and flats.

Have you been shopping for end-of-season wardrobe boosters? Would you wear any of the designs on my wishlist this week?
