In this week: Leopard print pieces, autumn neutrals and our favourite military piece of the season…
1. Poltock & Walsh Browns Silk Playsuit, £146, theOutnet.com
A classic black playsuit with a twist, this Poltock & Walsh silk onesie boasts bright multi-coloured buttons to add a bit of kitsch to a wardrobe staple – its as perfect for pared-down workwear as it is for off-duty days.
2. Carvela Sophia Leopard Print Ankle Boot, £170, Kurt Geiger
Inject a bit of autumn into your current wardrobe with a leopard print boot. We love Carvela’s suede version with matching platform and block heel – try teaming with a slouchy tee and tapered black trousers for a look that will take you from day to evening.
3. By Malene Birger Topas Chiffon Jacket, £209, my-wardrobe.com
Military styling doesn’t have to be boyish, and By Malene Birger’s chiffon jacket is a case in point. With black trim, epaulette details and statement crystal embellishments, it’s perfect for adding a polished utilitarian touch to your cool-girl style (and we’ve been itching for its release ever since we saw it at my-wardrobe’s AW10 press day).
4. Mango Sonia Multi-chain Bracelet, £19.90, ASOS
Statement jewellery is great way of dressing up any outfit. We love Mango’s Sonia multi-chain bracelet with its mix of gold and silver chains, black thread and crystal details – it’s the kind of go-with-anything piece you can wear time again.
5. Kate Moss Limited Edition Layered Crop Shift Dress, £120, Topshop
A new addition to Kate Moss’s Limited Edition collection, this layered crop shift dress is the perfect way to carry summer styling through to autumn. In a gorgeous coral peach, team with chunky black heels to add a bit of edge and layer under your aviator jacket on cooler days. Plus, it’s one of Kate Moss’s final offerings for Topshop, so snap it up soon or it’ll go.
6. Whistles Chain Print Blouse, £85, ASOS
You just can’t have too many shirts this season, and whilst crisp classics are all a-go, don’t forget about your prints. We’ve fallen for Whistles’ whimsical chain print with horse charms which sits across sleek sheer black chiffon – wear yours with everything from new-season leather to tailored trousers or downtime denim.
7. Helmut Lang Geo Combo Leather Knit Jacket, £745, my-wardrobe.com
Is it a cardigan? Is it a leather jacket? Who cares, it’s Helmut Lang. A gorgeous chunky cashmere knit with leather panels to the front and back and a contrast ribbed collar, it’s a great alternative to this season’s aviator – especially if you like your textures mixed.
8. Skinny Leopard Belt, £16, Urban Outfitters
Spice up the simplest of outfits with an on-trend skinny leopard print belt. Not only is it sleek and subtle, it will act as in instant update to your current wardrobe.
9. Camel Pleat Long Line Shorts, £32, Topshop
Shorts aren’t just for summer – these camel pleat shorts from Topshop are the perfect transitional piece that will take you from the last remaining warm days through to winter with the addition of a pair of tights. Plus the longer length will work well for the office, too, as well as being flattering.
10. Warwick Tote, £250, Jaeger
In keeping with this season’s love of minimalism, a classic black tote will become your best friend. We love Jaeger’s sleek black bag with patent trim and gold hardware for an effortlessly elegant look that last forever.
