The Hot List: Autumnal fashion and beauty buys from boots to jewellery

Add these to your autumn wish list (Picture:

With the nights drawing in, this week’s Hot List is focusing on all things warm and cosy.

We’ve got knee-high boots for wider calves, funky knitwear from New Look and calming skincare to soothe dry winter skin.

Wish you could get an extra hour in bed every weekend? You can now book a sleep appointment from John Lewis, or try a caffeinated eye cream for a quick fix.

Plus there are some golden goodies that you might want to add to your Christmas list.

John Lewis + Erica Davies boots

It’s a boot-iful fit

What is it about knee-length boots and women’s legs? If you aren’t lucky enough to have super-slender calves, you’ve probably struggled to get that zip all the way up to the top, even when you try on the ‘wide fit’.

Thankfully, fashion influencer Erica Davies has teamed up with John Lewis to create a range of stylish boots that is 15% roomier than regular boots.
