Wrap up warm this autumn without breaking the bank with our cash-saving tips

AUTUMN is fast approaching . . .  so it is time to layer up.

Soaking up the sun soon won’t be an option and thanks to our lovely British weather, you must be prepared to face all kinds of conditions.

Yet that can come at a hefty price, with research revealing that women here will spend an average of £81 on a new coat.

But you don’t have to freeze — or pay a fortune. There is nothing bitter about these bargains . . . 

LIGHT LAYERS: Sometimes you only need something light, and the denim shacket is bang on trend — you can get it for £20 at studio.co.uk, far cheaper than a similar one at Dorothy Perkins for £35. You could also layer up with a blazer. It is such a versatile item for day and evening alike. I like the Longline Fitted Single Breasted Black Blazer from laredoute.co.uk — half-price at £20, down from £40.

SAVING: £20 on the blazer

GOOD COATING: A trench coat is a wardrobe staple. I love the Long Cotton Water-Repellent Trench Coat from laredoute.co.uk, on sale for £59.40. But I opted for the Pimkie Short Length Beige Trench Coat from asos.com — on sale for £19.95, down from £24.99. That’s a steal.

SAVING: £39.45 by shopping at ASOS

NICE’N’THICK: For those cold mornings, you might need something thicker. Check out the Principles Black Dogtooth Cocoon Coat at debenhams.co.uk. It is super-trendy and on sale for £39.50, down from £79. Bargain! I also like the Black Fluid Women’s Long Padded Zip-Through Jacket from mandm direct.co.uk. At just £29.99 it is one of the cheapest puffer jackets I’ve seen.

SAVING: £39.50 at Debenhams

FIT FOR A KING: For a coat for all weathers, take a look at tkmaxx.com — there are some real bargains, including the Pierre Cardin Navy All-Season 3-in-1 Performance Jacket, on sale for £44.99, down from its RRP of £165. It is only available in a large size online, so check in store for more availability.

For something lighter, the Blue Denim Jacket at burton.co.uk is on offer for £18.

SAVING: £120.01 at TK Maxx
