Sorry to mention it, but tomorrow is the first day of September…yes, summer is almost over.

And that means within a couple of weeks we’ll be digging out the sweaters, long-sleeved tops, padded jackets and boots.

In preparation it’s always a good idea to add a couple of new pieces to your existing wardrobe, items that are stylish, flexible and will stand the test of time.

With this in mind, high street favourite Dorothy Perkins brings you a whole new range of Style Heroes - key statement pieces that will see you through the season beyond.

It’s all about injecting a few new ideas and helping you make the best of your existing wardrobe, from workday wear to post-office drinks, Saturday shopping to glamorous party wear.

The range is comfortingly affordable, too, which means investing in these key pieces won’t break the bank. So why not treat yourself to a smart new look this autumn – a change of season is the perfect excuse.
