What Our Editor Is Buying From the New Season Collections

The start of February signals the changeover in fashion seasons—summer stock is on sale and autumn starts to roll in. As a fashion editor, I see new things I want to drop my cash on every day, but I know I need to be strategic and wait until just the right moment. I.e. right now.

Last month, I filled my wardrobe with fresh staples, and now, I’m going to add some hero pieces into the mix. Keep scrolling to find the best pieces from new season collections to shop right now.

I'm imagining wearing this lightweight knit now with my summer denim skirt and later with kick-flare cropped jeans. 

Point toe flats are a must for nailing that "I look dressy, but really I'm just wearing cropped cigarette pants and a white tee" look.

I'll be honest, and say that I wouldn't usually wear a short floral playsuit, but there's something about these flared sleeves and the dark floral print that makes me want to live in it on weekends.

A good quality leather belt is essential. This will be my best friend to dress up jeans, skirts and belt lightweight jackets (yep, we're doing that again). 

A new colour for a new season. These are for days where I want to be comfy, but need to look elevated and go a step above jeans.

A kimono style jacket will be BIG news for autumn. Get in early with this lightweight version.

A 'car-wash' skirt has been on my wishlist for a while. Now's the perfect time to add-to-cart for transitional weather.

I love pieces with in-built layering, and this KITX dress clearly ticks that box. The cold-shoulder sleeves make me weak at the knees.

We recently told you that a bucket bag will be one of the biggest bag trends of this year, so I'm making a point to add one to my wardrobe now.
