This time of year can sometimes be difficult to dress for – not quite cold enough for full-on winter coats but not warm enough to surpass the woolens.
Well would take a look at this: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was recently pictured on the streets of London wearing this perfectly autumnal ensemble.
The sweater is having a major fashion moment at the minute and her striped Joie piece is the perfect blend of slouchy and chic. Rosie paired the sweater with skin-tight dark denim and black suede knee-high wedge boots (which we’re more than a little bit jealous of).
We also loved her Seventies-style wide-brimmed floppy hat in that gorgeous plum colour – very Bianca Jagger, non? She finished the look with a classic super-sized black tote which pulled the look together effortlessly.
Of course, most of us will never get to be a Burberry muse like Rosie. Or replace Megan Fox in a movie. Or be a London socialite. Bad times, but we can totally steal her look. See how:
The focus of this outfit is the striped jumper. Rosie’s gorgeous Joie number will set you back £270, but we’ve found this wonderful mohair version from Topshop for a far more purse-friendly £42. Sweet!

When wearing knee high boots it’s important to wear jeans as slim-cut as possible to avoid adding unnecessary bulk. Investing in a good pair will withstand all the wear and tear winter has to throw at them – this wax-coated pair from J Brand is perfect.

Rosie’s suede wedge boots not only look great, they’re also sturdy and practical on foot. This pair from House of Harlow has a definite touch of the Seventies to them and works wonders with a wide brimmed hat.

Now for the finishing touch: that statement hat. Choose a versatile shade like Rosie and you’ll have the perfect accessory for this season. We love this go-with-everything felt one from Day Birger et Mikkelsen.
