As a perennially chilly Italian living in London, the moment the nights start to draw in, I immediately gravitate towards the warmth provided by turtlenecks, velvet and cashmere. Not every item in my selection here will reinvent the fashion wheel – indeed, you might already have some of these at the back of your closet – but each will fill a gap in your wardrobe, providing countless solutions for braving the winter.

During the summer denim gets somewhat overlooked for my beloved dresses, but I always come back to it around this time of year. Add a soft cashmere and ankle boots, et voila.
Leopard print effortlessly adds interest to an otherwise sober winter outfit, and these boots do the job with aplomb. Jeans, dresses, skirts or tailored trousers all make the perfect foil.
