Like the idea of livening up your wardrobe in time for autumn? Discover how to get this vibrant on-trend look with designer pieces – without buying new.

As we edge our way towards autumn, everything can start to look a little greyer. But that doesn’t mean our outfits need to. Thankfully, this particular new season trend is set to add a splash of colour to our wardrobes, with top-to-toe brights and in-your-face neons all over the 2019 autumn-winter catwalks. For second hand inspiration and the chance to shop the looks, savvy fashion students Sophie Connell and Amina Patel have pulled together outfits using designer pieces and more #FoundInOxfam.
