We've got that back to school feeling but we'll be shopping for style staples instead of pencil cases as the latest collections hit the racks and there are new trends to try.
Of course our favourite celebrities are always well ahead of the game when it comes to nailing the key pieces we'll all be wearing each season. And thanks to V by Very's brand new range we can all get their looks for less.
So steal some celebrity style with our pick of this season's must have buys...
THE PATENT TROUSERS
Millie Mackintosh rocks a pair of slinky patent trousers. Steal her style with this V by Very design for £35
Millie Mackintosh was always the most stylish member of the Made in Chelsea gang so it's no surprise she's become as well known for her sartorial savvy as her complicated love life.
The gorgeous Londoner, who has recently become engaged to beau Hugo Taylor, features regularly on best-dressed lists managing to combine a Bohemian vibe with a modern urban edge.
So it's a given that she's already been rocking one of the coolest pieces for AW17; a pair of super shiny, super sexy, super slinky patent PU trousers.
Millie styled hers with some classic courts and a nautical inspired knit and thanks to V by Very we can all recreate this killer look with its £35 version.
Make like Millie for daytime and team with a cosy jumper and a pair of white sneakers, or take them out for the night with some skyscraper heels and a silky camisole.
THE LEATHER BIKER JACKET
Leather is a major trend for autumn with designer labels like Saint Laurent, Valentino, Alexander McQueen and Tod's all working this luxury material into dresses, skirts and sharp tailoring. But as far as we're concerned the BEST way to add leather to your look is with a classic biker jacket.
A leather biker jacket is a celebrity favourite for everyone from Alexa Chung, left, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Ah, what's not to love about this absolute essential? A biker is cool, adds edge to any outfit and you can guarantee it will always be in style, so is worth spending your hard earned cash on.
And it's a celebrity fave too with everyone from Cara Delevingne to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wearing a biker on a regular basis.
One of our top biker baes is Alexa Chung who really knows how to work one. Whether she's in skinny jeans or a feminine frock you can almost guarantee she'll be rocking a leather jacket on top.
V by Very's biker jacket, £150, with gold studs and heavy metal zips will look great with jeans or floral midi dresses
So why not steal this fashion maven's style with V by Very's new take on the trend.
With its tough girl gold studs and heavy metal zips, it'll look great with this season's floral midi dresses. And at £150 you don't need to have an Alexa Chung sized budget to nail the look.
THE SLOGAN T-SHIRT
Got something to get off your chest? Need to make your point without saying a word? Then look no further than the slogan T-shirt as you update your wardrobe for autumn.
Be like Victoria Beckham and make a statement without saying a word with a slogan T-shirt. V by Very's cute 'Moi et Toi' is £15
Last season Christian Dior and Prabal Gurung went large on chatty tees but this is one trend that will not stay quiet.
And with the likes of Victoria Beckham, Gigi Hadid and Isla Fisher all making a statement, you can do the same thing for less with V by Very's very cute 'Moi et Toi' design for only £15. That's 'Me and You', don't you know!
THE STRIPED SWEATER
If you like to buy clothes you can wear forever then there is no better investment than the striped, (or Breton) top. With fans in everyone from Kate Moss to Jennifer Lawrence, these nautical stripes have endless appeal.
The Duchess of Cambridge is a huge fan of Breton tops and has worn one on numerous occasions. V by Very's knitted top, £22, is also fit for royalty with its pretty frilled cuffs
Even royalty is getting in on the act. The Duchess of Cambridge must have one of the biggest collections of Bretons ever. We've lost count of the number of times we've spotted her looking chic in stripes. As Kate knows, a striped top will take you from the school gates to the office and all the way to the pub.
For this autumn, V by Very's knitted version (£22) with its very pretty frilled cuffs is ideal for anyone who wants to update their look without being a slave to trends.
There are countless ways to style it so it'll fit into your existing wardrobe easily. Work it with a pair of boyfriend jeans and trainers on the weekend, tuck it into a metallic pleated midi skirt for a fashion forward date or with a pair of high waist black trousers and heels for a day of meetings.
THE SADDLE BAG
Accessories can take an outfit from zero to hero so it's worth investing in a few bits to dress your new looks up and down. And if you want a true celebrity staple then you can't go wrong with a saddle bag.
A saddle bag is one stylish accessorie the stars can't do without. Alessandra Ambrosios, left, took hers to Coachella while Emma Watson is often seen out and about in London with hers
These rounded cross body bags are a major fave with fashion mavens like Alessandra Ambrosio, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson and Cat Deeley who all sling them over their shoulders on a regular basis.
Cat loves her plait detail Altuzarra while Taylor is crazy about her tassel trimmed Rebecca Minkoff, but perhaps the ultimate saddle style is the Hudson by Chloé. It comes in countless colours and nails the luxe Bohemian vibe we love.
V By Very's saddle bag is just as gorgeous as the arm candy carried by Alessandra and Emma but is only £28
But thanks to V by Very this high end trend is one we can all try. This gorgeous bit of arm candy features a metal ring and subtle tassel and the best thing is it's only £28! Oh we do love a celebrity inspired bargain.
THE MINI SKIRT
Ever since Mary Quant unleashed the mini skirt in 1960s swinging London, it's been a right of passage for all clothes crazy women.
And it's no surprise that minis are a go to for so many of our famous friends as a flash of leg is a sure fire way to turn heads.
From model mates like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid to WAGS like Alex Gerrard and Coleen Rooney, there's loads of inspiration for how to rock a mini.
Bella Hadid flaunts her fabulous legs in a black mini-skirt. Strut your stuff with V by Very's A-line mini, £25, complete with asymmetric frill
And if you needed further convincing to get your legs out then just look to the AW17 catwalks where Saint Laurent, Tommy Hilfiger Collection, JW Anderson and Marc Jacobs all kept the look alive with thigh skimming skirts, that made the most of the models' never ending pins.
So strut your stuff this season in V by Very's cute little A-line mini (£25) complete with asymmetric frill. Work it with a tucked in tee and trainers or cosy knit and ankle boots for a dressed down take on the trend.
And don't forget that even when the temperature drops you can still make a mini work. Just add a pair of opaque black tights to take this look all the way through winter.
THE EMBROIDERED JEANS
Back in the day all we wanted was a simple pair of nicely fitting blue Levi 501s. But over the last couple of years denim trends have gone stellar and if you're anything like us, sometimes you'll find the choice a bit overwhelming.
Do you go skinny, boyfriend, mom, distressed, high-waisted, cropped, frayed, embellished, pink? The list of ways to work your jeans is seemingly endless but for anyone who wants just one new pair for autumn, have you considered a spot of statement embroidery?
Pixie Lott steps out in a pair of embroidered jeans. Nail the trend with V by Very's pair for £35
Fashion stars like Amal Clooney, Bella Hadid and Pixie Lott have all been spotted rocking this look.
If you're not sure how to style such a stand out piece then don't fret. It's actually much easier than you might think. The trick is to keep the rest of your look simple. So go for a block colour T-shirt, blouse or jumper rather than a clashing print and accessorise with shoes that pick out one of the shades in the embroidery.
This gorgeous pair by V by Very is perfect for updating your denim collection and at only £35, you'll be nailing another celeb trend without having to spend a celeb style fortune.
THE PINK KNIT
Pink used to be reserved for Barbie girls in their Barbie worlds but the fashion industry has given us permission to go girly and embrace our inner princess.
It all started with the pink winter coat (remember that race to bag one?) but now every shade from of blush to fuchsia has become a permanent fixture in our wardrobes.
Holly Willoughby looks pretty in pink in a soft knit jumper and pleated skirt. Steal her style with V by Very's pink sweater with pearl embellishment
And who does pink better than wholesome girl next door Holly Willoughby? The presenter always looks polished and put together and we love her ladylike style.
An all-pink look she recently sported on This Morning is one of our favourites. The combination of the silky pleated skirt with the super soft knit of the jumper works beautifully and the good news is, stealing her style on a budget isn't tricky at all.
V by Very's AW17 collection features this perfectly pretty sweater with pearl embellishment adding an extra luxurious touch to proceedings. Wear with jeans and over the knee boots for an elegant weekend ensemble or tuck it into a leather midi skirt and take it into the office this season.
THE POLKA DOT BLOUSE
Like stripes, the humble polka dot is one of those prints that's always in fashion. Year after year, season after season, you can rely on spots to keep you chic.
Chloe Moretz has gone dotty for spots, you can do the same with V by Very's black and white polka dot blouse
And of course, our fashionable celebrity friends have cottoned onto this fact with Cat Deeley, Chloe Moretz and Laura Whitmore just a few of the VIPs who've gone dotty for spots.
Both Laura and Cat use their polka print blouses to dress up casual black jeans while Chloe proves dots can be taken seriously by pairing her shirt with tailored culottes and some strappy sandals.
Want to style up some spots this season? No problem. V by Very's gorgeous blouse is just the thing and even features on trend frills and a pussy bow neck tie. Three trends in one? Yes please!
THE HIGH WAIST TROUSERS
AW17 is all about tailoring with smart suits making a major comeback at Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang and Stella McCartney. But if you're not ready to go full on 'working girl' then why not just add some well cut trousers into your wardrobe?
Actress Scarlett Johansson looks the part in high waist trousers. V by Very's version, £30, has a chic slim cut leg and matching belt, which will really accentuate your waist
If you buy the right pair they can take you straight from your desk to the dance floor so take inspiration from these sophisticated beauties.
A high 'paper bag' waist will give your look a bit of modern edge and this style is perfect for tucking in tops, whether a cosy knit like Kourtney Kardashian's, a short sleeve polo shirt like Scarlett Johansson's or a sultry sheer bodysuit like Chrissy Teigen's.
And V by Very's version (£30) has a chic slim cut leg and matching belt, which will really accentuate your waist. Add heels and you'll be good to go.
