Alternatively, hold on to your summer sandals, add a pair of socks (if you can brave it) and swap the silk slip for a woollen dress.
With the last heatwave coming to a close (here’s to hoping), pieces are trickling onto the shop floors, fresh off the runway, such as Saint Laurent’s uber elegant maxi evening dress or Versace’s mini + bustier combo.
