Simply Be Leather High-Leg Boots, £70
They're stylish, comfortable, and they won't cut off the circulation to your knees – what more could you want from your new autumn boots?
“I have massive calves and Simply Be has been my saviour. I've even got thigh-high boots this year! I've never gotten into boots by any other high street brand, yet Simply Be's largest size (extra curvy plus) is far too big for me so I can get away with super curvy.” FormerlyFrikadela01
“Another vote for Simply Be – there's lots of different calf sizes. I can't get my fat calves into Evans boots but I just bought a gorgeous pair on Simply Be that fit me perfectly.” cricketmum84Buy now from Simply be
Hush Marina Skirt, £65
You'll be reaching for this midi skirt on those fresh winter mornings.
“I really love the snakeprint Marina skirt too. The black has been incredibly useful and this one is lovely – it has a little shimmer in some parts that really add to it.” missfliss

Boden Ravello Top, £55
These tops from Boden are the perfect answer to the question of autumn officewear.
“I got these two tops and they are lovely on. Good with trousers, and also, if there is a chance you're going to sweat, then something light and loose is a godsend.” Bluntness100
Available in both navy and white.Buy now from Boden

George Leather Chelsea Boots, £25
Add these bargainous boots to your shopping basket.
“I have too many boots and couldn't justify buying anything expensive, but I took a chance on these and am delighted – they do not look or feel like they cost £25. They are so, so comfy without even needing to be broken in. I may have to order them in black too, rude not to at that price.” evilharpy
You can get these in black.Buy now from ASDA
Real Techniques Flawless Base Make-up Brush Set, £13.98 (was £22.99)
Whether you're a make-up pro or not, these brushes give perfect results without breaking the bank.
“I have the Real Techniques eye and face sets and I love them. The face set has a lovely big soft powder brush, as well as a small tapered one which is great for contouring.” MrsRubyMonday

L'Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Wash, £1.99
This cleanser is gentle on the skin and effortlessly removes eye make-up.
“I have sensitive dry skin and I use this one, it leaves my skin lovely and soft. I've tried Clarins, Bliss and other way more expensive ones, but I keep coming back to it. It removes my eye make-up without really trying as well, so I rarely use eye make-up remover any more.” HowtodealBuy now from Boots
FlipBelt Classic Running Belt, from £20
Somewhere to put your essentials while you're out for a run.
“I have a mild running gadget addiction, and the one I use most is the FlipBelt, because it's the one I find easiest to get things in and out of without stopping." AuntieStella
