The sportswear classic has finally been given a stylish makeover. Sarah Young highlights some of the best buys for your new season look

The arrival of autumn brings with it grey skies and a definite chill in the air but also the perfect excuse to update your cold-weather wardrobe.

While it might be a little premature to start whipping out the woolly jumpers, welcoming long sleeves back into your look is a great way to transition through to cooler climes.

Sweatshirts offer a refined take on an all-American classic that can be thrown on with almost anything while also being super comfortable.

Whether you’re looking to spare no expense or you’re after a bargain buy that will see you through the coming weeks, the sportswear classic has become a fashion wardrobe staple. Why not invest in this season’s cheaper and more fun alternative to knitwear.
