Can’t wait for AW13? With our roundup of the best Pre AW13 pieces, even the most impatient of shoppers will be satisfied.
Cruise, resort, mainlines, capsules – navigating the sartorial calendar can be tricky. Well, StyleNest are here to give you a helping hand, rounding up our top picks from the Pre AW13 collections.
Pre-Autumn/Winter is one of our favourite seasons, or pre seasons if you prefer, as the looks are often a little more wearable, saving the real showstoppers for the seasons that show on the catwalk.
Pre is practical too – taking you from the height of summer into chilly autumn days and the onslaught of winter.
Investing in a new Aumtum/Winter wardrobe? Pre is the way to do it.
