GABRIELA HEARST – Sabina Tasselled Checked Pencil Skirt
Shaped to a high-waist silhouette that skims over the hips and legs, this grey skirt can be worn in and out of the office. It’s patterned with a dégradé Prince of Wales check embellished with tassels and it is warm and cosy. Wear with a nice pair of boots and a short jacket for a stylish Autumn edit.
VALENTINO – Rockstud No Limit Velvet Cross-body Bag
I love teal blue and this velvet bag is truly amazing! Featuring a back-slip pocket and Valentino’s signature light gold-metal studs, this cross-body bag has the perfect size to carry your everyday essentials. Match with a monochrome look and let it pop!
VETEMENTS – Inside Out Reversible Wool-blend Coat
This reversible coat is both trendy and plush. Crafted from a wool-blend, it features a logo jacquard reverse and four pockets. Wear it with a nice pair of tailored trousers and sky-high boots for a chic Autumn look.
AQUAZZURA – Gainsbourg 85 Suede Knee-high Boots
I am in love with these Aquazzura burgundy suede boots! Shaped with a rounded top edge and a slim stiletto heel, they are definitely a must-have for this season. Not only they will keep your feet warm, but they are super sexy and will add a feminine colour touch to your outfit.
ROKSANDA – Mylo Abstract Intarsia-knit Top
Sparked from the abstract impressionist works of artist Helen Frankenthaler, this black and purple top will bring an extra something to your Autumn wardrobe. Shaped with a high neck and wide dropped sleeves, it has a graphic intarsia-knit pattern with metallic hints. Pair it with the matching skirt for a total look or wear it with classic black trousers and flats for a more low-profile style.
AUGUSTINE JEWELS – Gold and Ruby Earrings
Inspired by the rich wildflower meadows of the Cotswolds, these yellow gold and ruby earrings are delicate and sophisticated. Wear them day or night to add an extra sparkle to your outfit.
I LOVE MR MITTENS – Chunky-knit Wool Cardigan
This dark grey handwoven wool cardigan will be my go-to for this season. Chunky and super soft, it comes with a snug hood for extra warmth and comfort. Pair with jeans or a floaty skirt and boots for added contrast.
SUMMA – Tailored Slim-leg wool-blend Trousers
Tailored in Italy, these wool-blend trousers are enriched with a touch of cashmere for extra softness. With a comfortable mid-rise and a slim fit, they are cosy enough to be worn all day. Wear them with a funky sweater for a casual off-duty look, or pair with a nice jacket for an on-duty attire.
SAINT LAURENT – Joplin Leather Buckle Ankle Boots
Crafted in Italy with a sleek point toe and cuff strap that fastens with a logo-debossed silver-tone metal buckle, these black leather boots are truly sophisticated in their simplicity. Wear them with a classic pair of trousers, or pair them with a nice short dress for an interesting evening look.
