  • Laura’s New Season Staples

    As we move into the new season, comfort is still paramount for me. I need pieces that can take me from business meetings to the school pick-up while making me feel as good as they look. This means a dressed-up casual aesthetic comprising knitted layers and luxe basics that will effortlessly work with my existing cold-weather collection. I’m doubling down on pieces I know I’ll get repeat wear from, such as jumpsuits, boots and knitted dresses (Chloé’s striped iteration being at the very top of my wish list). An injection of colour will come via a swipe of statement lipstick – which, after so many months of minimal at-home make-up, I can’t wait to wear!  

    By Laura

    Chloé

    + NET SUSTAIN Striped Recycled Cashmere-Blend Maxi Dress£1,420

    “I’m so excited about Gabriela Hearst’s tenure at Chloé, and this recycled cashmere dress from her debut collection is something I will be reaching for on repeat.”

    Jimmy Choo

    Chadee 50 Natural Mix Leopard Print Pony Calf Boots£1,050

    “I invested in a pair of leopard-print boots a couple of seasons ago and cannot recommend them enough. Endlessly adaptable, they amp up neutrals, tastefully clash with prints and work with block colours for both day and evening. The trick is to choose a pair with a walkable heel, such as these.”

    La Redoute

    Chain Link Bracelet£26

    “As far as jewellery goes this season, my motto is: pile it on. I’ll be reaching for oversized gold chains and wearing them as necklaces and bracelets layered over knitwear.” 

    Celine

    Medium Classic Bag In Box Calf£2,950

    “The beautifully pared-back design of Celine’s shoulder bag cements it as a timeless investment. I already have forever styles in black, tan and brown, so love the idea of injecting colour into my collection with autumnal red.”

    Boden

    Diana Chunky Cashmere Jumper£298

    “Boden really are masters of the striped top, and this wide-stripe cashmere knit will elevate everyday jeans.”

    Reiss

    Leenah Paige High Rise Flared Jeans in Light Blue£275

    “Denim will continue to be a fixture in my new-season wardrobe, but I’ll be switching straight-leg jeans for flared cuts, which have just the right amount of vintage-inspired aesthetic.”

    Isabel Marant

    Black Lecce Leather Belt£135

    “This sleek leather belt is a true outfit transformer: I’ll be using it to refresh last year’s coats, by belting them at the waist, and to give my knitted dresses and chunky jumpers a cinched silhouette.”

    Michael Michael Kors

    Leopard-Print Faux Fur Coat£450 £198

    “It might make a statement, but leopard faux fur is as classic as it gets – think Edie Sedgwick, Debbie Harry et al. I’ll be using this bona fide multitasker to add wow-factor to everyday basics and evening wear.”

    Church's

    Alexandra T Polished Binder Lace-Up Boot£790

    “I’m really looking forward to pulling out my Church’s lace-up boots and will be wearing them with everything from tailored trousers to autumnal dresses.”

    Bottega Veneta

    Oversized Cat Eye Tortoiseshell Acetate Sunglasses£260 £182

    “Sunglasses are a year-round must for me, and I always have a pair in my bag for those bright wintry days. Bottega Veneta’s contemporary take on the classic cat-eye has caught my attention – timeless yet modern.”

    Tilly Sveaas

    Small Gold T-Bar Earring£105

    “Gold hoops are my daily go-to, but these T-bar earrings make for a new-season update. Just the thing to add subtle glow to everyday outfits. Plus, the bars can be removed, for double the styling opportunity.” 

    & Other Stories

    Gold Button Knit Sweater£75

    “A navy jumper is an essential in my knitwear drawer, but I love the idea of giving the basic an extra-special touch with elevating gold buttons.” 

    Alessandra Rich

    Bow-Detailed Checked Wool-Twill Headband£255

    “I might have mentioned once or twice that I have a thing for bows! Not only will this headband lend polish to a cashmere-jumper-and-jeans look, it will also give me an instant mood boost.”

    Gucci Beauty

    Rouge à Lèvres Mat Lipstick – Eadie Scarlet 502£35

    “I have really missed wearing lipstick so will be embracing it with gusto this autumn. Gucci’s long-lasting, luxe formulations have really impressed me, and I love this deep-red hue, which comes with a velvet matte finish.”

    Ulla Johnson

    Akiba Belted Gathered Denim Wide-Leg Jumpsuit£690 £345

    “Jumpsuits have become a staple in my autumn/winter wardrobe, and I love Ulla’s feminine silhouettes. When temperatures drop, my tip is to layer up with a roll neck underneath. Reach for fine-gauge merino knits or striped jersey styles.”
