Argo Printed Charmeuse Shirt, £800 | Khaite
A new silk set marks the start of every new season for me. This tongue-in-cheek Khaite option is a departure for the usually demure label; I’m particularly tempted by those oversized cuffs.
Chelsea Embroidered Intarsia Wool Sweater, £495 | Sea
Autumn knitwear is beginning to appear and Fair Isle, florals and kitsch prints are the stand out trends. I love this playful Sea NYC option – just as good with a slip skirt and trainers now as black denim and boots later.
Cotton-Corduroy Flared Pants, £250 | Polo Ralph Lauren
Confession: I purchased these the minute I saw them. This autumn/winter, brown is a key theme – you can either go full Gucci girl by adding a printed silk shirt, take inspo from 90s J Crew with a buttoned-up denim shirt and a textured blazer, or give them a modern spin with a slub tee and cropped jacket.
Puzzle Leather Shoulder Bag, £1,850 | Loewe
Who says autumn bags have to be neutral? This pea green is so good – imagine it with Barbie pink, sorbet yellow, forest green, warm camel, chocolate brown and myriad other colours.
Foulard Draped Striped Cotton-Poplin Turtleneck Blouse, £770 | Adam Lippes
I love a twist on classic shirting, and the statement neckline on this piece keeps it interesting. NET-A-PORTER’s styling is spot on – I’ll be layering this under a blazer to give that neckline an extra bit of drama.
Vernice 85 Patent-Leather Pumps, £800 | Gianvito Rossi
I'm a sucker for an elegant heel, and this pointed, pointy style is just heaven. Consider them just as effective poking out of a long pair of jeans as teamed with ankle-grazing tailored trousers.
Giamili Bouclé Peplum Top, £550 | Isabel Marant
This Isabel Marant blouse did the rounds last year, but it’s just as good now. Its bouclé finish gives it an autumnal feel but, balanced out by white denim, it’s a useful transitional piece.
Horseshoe Distressed High-Rise Tapered Jeans, £370 | Citizens of Humanity
I’ve been thinking about these jeans for so long. Denim can be hard if you have a small waist and curvier thighs/bum – but these fit you in all the right places. How perfect with the white heels and Sea NY knit…
Sama Layered Poplin-Trimmed Cotton Oxford Wide-Leg Pants, £200 | REMAIN Birger Christensen
Rotate has leant right into the micro-trend of peekaboo boxers built into trousers, and I’m here for it. It balances out the formality of tailoring – this is pretty much the perfect transitional outfit and easily layered if needed.
Screen Square-Frame Acetate Sunglasses, £310 | Loewe Eyewear
Sunglasses aren’t just for summer. How cool would this oversized white Loewe pair look with a really chunky navy rollneck later in the year?
