It’s that time of year again. Time to pack away the Speedos and start thinking about your autumn wardrobe. Gone are the bright palm tree print shirts — you’re going to need looks that will catch the eye of the man who’s going to keep you warm this winter, so your sweater game needs to be on point.

Avoid the stress of big-city shopping and sale rack rummaging, and make your way down to Gunwharf Quays on Portsmouth Harbour. Finding the perfect pair of designer boots at an affordable price is stressful enough, without having to negotiate a busy high street, traffic and screaming children on their half-term holidays. Escape to the coast for a cooler, calmer and more collected experience.

Gunwharf Quays has a range of top-name stores from esteemed British brands including Ted Baker, Paul Smith, Reiss, AllSaints and Hackett, to designer overseas fashion houses such as Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and Levi’s, all offering discounts of up to 60 per cent.

Perched on Portsmouth’s idyllic waterfront and under the watchful gaze of the striking Spinnaker Tower, Gunwharf Quays boasts over 30 cafes, restaurants and bars to help you make a day of it. There’s even a Holiday Inn Express to spend the night at should you end up having one too many fiery Moscow mules.

So, whether you’re looking for that special someone to be the Morticia to your Gomez this Halloween, or just someone to meet for a pumpkin spice latte, you’re going to need the right outfit — and Gunwharf Quays is exactly where you’ll find it.
