  • 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.”

    “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.”
