Today marks the start of autumn proper, and I took no little pleasure in travelling to the office in my thick, cable-knit tights, herringbone skirt and cute, preppy Mary Jane shoes. No style works better with this look than the MJ, so if you're partial to the girlish shoes, now is the time to stock up. Check out our pick of the best autumn Mary Jane for wearing with your woollies and patterned cardigans!

We've picked out a few of our favourite sensible strapped shoes for teaming with those cosy pieces - and we've chosen warm, autumn leaf colours to match up with the season's mood. Click on each shoe for more information on price and where to buy it.
