Fashion: Inside my wardrobe
Tracy Frost, Marketing and PR coordinator at John Lewis, Welwyn, shares her latest must-have items for the autumn winter season...
My latest splurge...
The animal print trend continues which gives the perfect excuse to indulge in a delightful snakeskin clutch with magnetic foldover front, a roomy main compartment and finished with a skinny long strap which tucks easily into the bag.

My weekend buy...
I love this vibrant cherry red knitted dress that adds instant autumn chic to my wardrobe. It’s just perfect for weekends away with the girls, and it’s easy to carry in my travel bag. I’ll just add heels for a feminine touch and instant glamour.

My on-trend item...
Sometimes a teeny tiny bag just won’t do and you have to have one with loads of space that still looks pretty on your arm, like this brown fake fur bag.

Perfect for chilled out days...
Autumn knits just scream cosy and this casual knitted dress is just perfect as the days draw in. Team with tights or leggings and a pair of calf or knee length boots to make the day seem so much brighter.
