    At the start of every season, I have a wardrobe clear out – I put my summer items to the back, and bring forward my winter wear. Then I analyse what I have and what I feel is missing from my capsule collection and build a shopping list. This winter I will be aiming to keep it clean and classic, with a twist on fabrics and details. So I am looking to finally introduce a tulle skirt (with a bit of glitter), expand my suit wardrobe with more wintry fabrics, and introduce a T-shirt jumper to my cashmere collection (hello Chloé Fair Isle). 

    Casasola

    Belted grain de poudre Wool Blazer£1,145

    “I am a big fan of tailoring, and a beige suit has been on my wish-list for forever. Perhaps this is the season I take the plunge!”

    Casasola

    Pleated grain de poudre wool Straight-leg Pants£565

    “A good suit is defined by its trousers. My favourite is a cigarette shape, as it’s both flattering and timeless.”

    Saint Laurent

    Round-buckled Leather Belt£345

    “For years my mother has collected belts, and now I can see why – like a great scarf or bag, it can be the accessory to make or break an outfit.”

    Boden

    Evie Top£65

    “I have several variations of the white blouse, but a simple design with a tied bow will be a great work addition to my collection.”

    Anni Lu

    Baroque Shell Drop Earring£250

    “Every outfit needs a wow factor – these earrings will add it with regal flare, and go with everything.”

    Loewe

    Cushion Large Canvas Tote Bag£775

    “Last season I bought a Saint Laurent canvas tote, felt guilty about it, but used it more than any other bag I own. Cost per wear, it has been such a successful buy – I am tempted to add a Loewe version to the mix.”

    Simone Rocha

    Sequin Ruffle Tulle Midi Skirt£695

    “Age old story: Laura buys something, I am not sure about it, then two years later I try to buy one and can’t find the same version. However, I think this tulle skirt with sequin detail might have been worth the hesitation.”

    Pure Collection

    Cashmere T-Shirt£99

    “The softest cashmere in a tasteful tobacco shade means this cashmere tee is a wardrobe must-have. Perfect for pulling on over slip dresses, or adding to a trench and denim.”

    Gucci

    Black Princetown Leather Fur Lined Mules£720

    “I fought it at first, bought every different version – but now I am relenting, and admitting I was wrong. The fur-lined version of the Gucci loafer is the only pair to own this winter.”

    Valet

    Kelly Set Of Two Glittered Resin Hair Clips£30

    “I have to be honest, bows and hairbands can be tricky to pull off, but clips are definitely the understated way to do hair accessories.”

    COS

    Asymmetric Wrap Jumpsuit£99

    “I was convinced jumpsuits weren’t for me, but a V-neck style with a wrap detail has changed my mind. It’s stupidly flattering on an hour-glass shape.”

    Chloé

    Intarsia Merino Wool-Blend Turtleneck Sweater£620

    “Vintage Fair Isle: tick. Polo-neck: tick. T-shirt shape: tick. Finding it hard to find reasons not to covet this Chloé number.”

    Aname

    Alphabet Letter Rings£180

    “These iconic rings are as versatile as they are cool. Instant classics that will become as much a part of you as your own initials.”

    Kin

    Cotton Twill Cocoon Skirt£79

    “Laura has a Joseph version of this khaki skirt (that I wish I’d bought). I love the utilitarian feel of it, and how, like a good trouser, it can be easily dressed up or down.”

    Paris Texas

    Brown 80 Croc-Effect Leather Boots£475

    “Every winter I wear my camel knee-high boots on high rotation, and I have been on the hunt for a darker pair. When we spotted these Paris Texas ones at Paris Fashion Week, they have been in my virtual basket ever since.”
