  • Deborah’s Handpicked Edit

    This season, I have found myself leaning towards pieces that straddle the smart/casual divide. My lifestyle has become more home-based than ever, so I am looking for ways of dressing that are relaxed yet elegant. This means soft textures, a versatile colour palette and classic, everyday silhouettes that can be dressed up or down. I’ll also be adding a handful of retro-inspired transformers to refresh my collection and give it seasonal relevance.

    By Deborah Brett

    Isabel Marant Étoile

    Gabrion Oversized Checked Felt Coat£ 470

    “A blanket coat is always in my winter edit; I love its casual, throw-on appeal, while its light yet warm nature means you can layer it up or down to suit the temperature (wear over a shirt now, add knitwear when it gets colder). This oversized check is striking enough to provide the focal point for any outfit.”

    Isabel Marant

    Belita Tie-Front Cotton T-Shirt£ 235

    “As a child of the ’80s, sartorial influences from the era are particularly resonating with me this season. Though shoulder pads might seem unusual, when subtly placed on a classic white T-shirt, they provide a flatteringly structured silhouette. The knot front is also perfect for wearing with high-waisted trousers.”

    Mother of Pearl

    Wide Leg Organic Cotton Jeans£ 99

    “Denim is playing a starring role in my autumn/winter wardrobe. With a high waist and relaxed-fit, these wide-legs are smarter than a boyfriend cut, yet still have the sense of ease I’m looking for. They’re versatile, too; pair with a T-shirt and sweater or dress up with a shirt and mules.”

    “I like to wear sunglasses, even in the depths of winter when that low light can be surprisingly bright. I consider cat-eye the most versatile frame as it suits every face shape, and I love this clean, white hue, which will refresh last year’s knits and outerwear.”

    Pangaia

    Lightweight Recycled Cotton Hoodie£ 118

    “I never thought I’d wear a hoodie; however, I have fallen in love! I am elevating the casual style by layering it underneath a blazer for a smart/casual clash. This khaki iteration from Pangaia is made from environmentally friendly yarn and comes in sustainable packaging.”

    Boden

    Grosvenor Leather Trousers£ 320

    “Black leather trousers are one of my winter staples. Adding luxe appeal to any outfit, I consider them a chic alternative to tracksuit bottoms and will wear them with chunky knits and flats.”

    Arket

    Mid-High Wide-Shaft Boots£ 225

    “Evoking an ’80s spirit, these cone-heel boots are the perfect length for tucking jeans inside. However, I could just as easily imagine wearing them with winter dresses and skirts. The grey colour is a softer alternative to black.”

    Saint Laurent

    Noe Logo-Embroidered Plaid Tote Bag£ 1,015

    “A giant tote is my hero bag shape for this season – just throw everything in and go! Bold yet understated, this blanket check makes a statement in a chic, quiet way.”

    Arket

    Pile Bucket Hat£ 35

    “I always reach for hats during the winter months and find them a more practical alternative to umbrellas. I particularly love the luxe appeal of this shearling bucket style.”

    & Other Stories

    Fitted Belted Short Sleeve Jumpsuit£ 95

    “Winter or summer, you will often find me in a jumpsuit. I find they need the least effort yet deliver the most impact. Corduroy is a classic winter-ready fabric, and the needle-fine rib on this version makes it all the more flattering.”

    Whistles

    Amber Leather Lace Up Ankle Boots£ 148

    “A pair of ready-to-walk-anywhere boots is a must in my cold-weather collection. These lace-ups marry the function of hiking boots with the sleekness of city boots, meaning they can easily be dressed up or down for myriad occasions.”

    & Other Stories

    Short Fitted Cable Knit Jumper£ 65

    “I always reach for chunky knits at this time of year and find a traditional cable-knit the most versatile. I’ll be teaming it with leather trousers and jeans or layering it under a blanket coat. The winter-white shade offers freshness.”

    Anya Hindmarch

    I Am A Plastic Bag Coated-Canvas Phone Pouch£ 250

    “I am forever losing my phone, so I’m a big fan of Anya Hindmarch’s chic pouch, which keeps it firmly stuck to my side. I really love the fact that it’s made from recycled fabrics, too.”
