Even fashion people find themselves saying most years, 'What exactly is pre-fall?' It's basically the collection released just before autumn (i.e. now!) that actually stays in stores for longer. The real reason to get excited, however, is that this year's drop includes some particularly fetching trends or, to use a more 2020 term, wear-forever ideas for your wardrobe.

First up, lashings of beige, the colour that hasn't skipped a season in years. And what about ballet pumps? Kate Moss wore them to death in the early '00s, and now they're back with a vengeance. Finally, harness bags, excellent for stashing your face mask and credit card when out and about. Keep scrolling for the seven trends to shop now - and wear for years to come.
