"Planning your autumn wardrobe"
"It is hard to start thinking about your autumn wardrobe when it's still summer" says the Times today. My anwswer to this would be: in that case, don't. But then I don't have an autumn wardrobe. Or, come to that, a spring wardrobe. I have winter clothes (jeans, shirts and sweaters) and summer clothes (ditto, but tee shirts if the weather's warm). Oh - and occasionally skirts. I see no point in having spring and autumn clothes, since the rest do the job well eneough, and I quite simply can't be bothered.
But in case you are (bothered), apparently this season (ha) "jackets, cardigans and bags must be outsized". Why? I've no idea. This bewildering advice was accompanied by a picture of a woman carrying what looked more like a sizeable overnight bag than a handbag; room for a lot more than money and tissues and keys and old train tickets and a library book and sundry receipts and half a Polo mint and the interesting stone your (grand)son gave you and...you get the picture.
But if you do want advice in assembling your autumn wardrobe, you (possibly) read it here first.
