  • Petro’s New Season Staples

    It’s at the beginning of September when I truly feel the call of the new, and this translates into looking for smart ways to update my wardrobe. For the season ahead I’m focusing on items that will give my current collection a fresh perspective; think colourful knits, contemporary tailoring and statement jewellery. I am also reaching for pieces that give me a thrill (hello, ’70s sunglasses!) and dream-ticket items that will become future classics – Bottega bag, I’m looking at you! 

    By Petro

    Essentiel Antwerp

    Agatti Cable Sweater£190

    “My mum had a similar style of jumper in the ’80s – so there’s an air of nostalgia to this knit for me. I love the emerald green, which will freshen an autumnal palette.”

    Rotate

    Rotie Faux Leather Trousers£180

    “PVC trousers have become part of my winter uniform. Paired with trainers and a cashmere knit, they take me from office to dinner, while making me feel modern and dressed up.”

    Chloé

    Wavy Shearing and Leather Slides£530

    “Last season, I bought a tan pair of Chloé flatforms that I adore, so I have decided to invest in a winter shearling pair. Inspired by our editor-at-large Deborah Brett, who wears hers on repeat, I am confident that I will, too.”

    JW Anderson

    Women’s Oversized Link Chain Choker£420

    “Chunky chains are very much this season, but their timeless appeal means I’ll be wearing them for years to come. This short-drop necklace will modernise my basics, giving a new lease of life to T-shirts and knits.”

    Reiss

    Jenny Cotton Poplin Shirt£98

    “A true wardrobe ICON, this classic white shirt comes in a beautiful, thick cotton that doesn’t show underwear.”

    Burberry

    Wool Tailored Jacket£1,190

    “This Burberry jacket and matching trousers have been on my wish list for ages. I missed out two winters ago, so I’m delighted they’re back again. Adding to basket now!”

    Burberry

    Wool Wide-leg Trousers£750

    “I’m a big fan of tailored trousers, and as I head towards my forties, they’re something I’m reach for more and more. This wide-leg style has a laid-back feel and can be worn with the matching jacket or separately, and with stomping boots or trainers.”

    Veja

    SDU Running Style Trainers£95

    “Since discovering that I get a lot of wear out of these running-style trainers, I’ve been on the hunt for a darker pair for autumn. I’ll be using them to play down dresses and suiting.” 

    Joanna Laura Constantine

    Women’s Waves Hoop With Pearl£200

    “Whether for waist-up dressing when working from home or building head-to-toe looks for venturing outside, these statement earrings will add polish. The pearls make for a twist on a classic.”

    Brora

    Cashmere Stole£219

    “A lightweight cashmere scarf is one of my autumnal must-haves and Brora’s luxe knits are a go-to. Dark green will update black, brown and camel coats.” 

    Materiel

    Double-Breasted Wool Coat£785

    “I am forever on the hunt for a great camel jacket and have fallen in love with this double-breasted iteration. I’ll wear it tonally with chocolate and caramel layers.” 

    Givenchy

    Oversized Square-Frame Gold-Tone Sunglasses£344 £223

    “A pair of statement sunglasses is always at the top of my new-season radar as they can elevate any look all year round. I love this oversized ’70s shape and yellow tint, which will add a retro nod to everyday outfits.”

    Mango

    Casiragi Check Longline Cardigan£69.99

    “I’m dipping my toe into checks this season by way of this long-length knitted cardigan, which I’ll layer over jeans.” 

    Bottega Veneta

    Green Loop Leather Cross Body Bag£1,415

    “Woven leather is a big trend this season, but also something that will endure, so it’s worth buying into. The deep green of this Bottega Veneta bag is a versatile alternative to classic black and tan, and something I don’t already have in my collection.”

    Zimmermann

    Tie-Front Silk Crepe De Chine Shirt£360 £216

    “Silk shirts are one of my trans-seasonal staples; I can imagine wrapping this over a silky slip dress while it’s still warm, then adding to tailoring as it gets cooler.” 

    Matteau

    + NET SUSTAIN Silk Crepe De Chine Midi Dress£340

    “The square neckline on this silk slip dress elevates the simple silhouette. I’ll style it with a tailored jacket and flat boots.”

    Jimmy Choo

    Youth II- Lined£850

    “I have these biker boots and cannot recommend them enough. This season, the shearling-lined versions are on my wish list, to wear in the depths of winter.”
