There are some pieces you will always find on my new-season essentials list. Take my beloved trench, for instance. It’s my armour against the cool autumn mornings, and a reminder that cold weather does have some redeeming qualities. Likewise, polished knitwear and a wear-on-repeat printed day dress. These are the items I will live in until well into March. But I do like to push myself a little too, and this season you’ll also find lace-up boots and a belted twill jumpsuit on the checklist too. Both classics in their own right, but I’m excited to make them my own. Plus, there’s a chunky bracelet, because, magpie.
“I get so much mileage from knitwear living in the UK. I fell in love with this jumper the moment I saw it on the Zimmermann catwalk – bows are a statement that never date.”
“I’ve found my perfect pair of stomping boots at Boden. I like the idea of pairing them with floral dresses and maxi skirts for that dressed-down feel.”
“I find it so liberating when I switch to a little keys-and-phone bag, like the Ali Mini. This gorgeous design is also super-versatile, as it can be worn cross-body, or as an elegant evening clutch.”
“I’m obsessed with Ulla Johnson’s ability to strike the perfect balance between boho and sophisticated. I adore this covered-up dress, perfect for winter days worn with boots and a chunky cardigan.”
“My number one (practical) recommendation this autumn is to invest in a black, long sleeve bodysuit to layer under your summer dresses to make them winter-appropriate. You’re welcome!”
“They may be on sale (with limited sizes, so act fast!), but leopard print is a neutral that never goes out of style. I can’t wait to wear these Gianvito Rossi boots with everything this winter.”
