Hooray for a new season! Brand new possibilities of colours, textures and shapes. Summer is great but the colder months are where you can truly show off your style. For September, I think it’s great to start off with those Autumn staples; a good shirt, the classic jacket, your LBD. These are the pillars of a working wardrobe, ones that you will wear over and over again.

That Totême ‘it’ coat is back, and it’s even chicer than before. 

That 90’s fit in that burgundy/red. Perfect with the Toteme camel coat. 

 Worn with a simple sweatshirt, this is a Fashion Week look. 

 

 

Incase you haven’t heard, I’ve designed a 6 piece collection for Daphine. A real pinch me moment, this collection is based on my grandparents jewellery, so it’s very close to my heart. Wear them everyday, make them part of your uniform.

It’s like they heard my exact needs. This flattering cut is everything. 

Brands have been bringing out the vest/cardi combo ever since Katie Holmes crossed the road in that Khaite set. This Massimo duo has pulled me right back. 

The print combined with the sleeve structure; this is grown up boho.  

At this time of year, I always find myself on the hunt for a relaxed pair of trousers. This combat style might just be the ones. 

So basic, you can wear it a million ways.  

I wore these recently on a shoot, and have not taken them off since. The perfect way to dress up a tee. 

I love the colour block on this. 

Just like the Zara knitted dress, this is the perfectly toned tee for A/W. 

I’m not usually one for a stand out trainer, but doing the nursey run in the rain this winter calls for some colour.

I’m not sure how many years ago it was, but I got this set when it was first released, when it came in a sheerer material. And I’ve worn it every summer. 

Yes, even throughout my pregnancy.

Okay, this one might not work throughout a pregnancy, but the boob-tube is the It shape of S/S 22. This loose silk style is the chicest way to do it. Pair it with a straight-cut maxi skirt, flats and an oversized shirt.

Whenever someone asks me, "What swimsuit shall I buy?" without a doubt, it’s always Hunza G. Its suits have worked for me throughout the past five-ish years. And that mango colour is my favourite. 

So this isn’t just a summer buy; this can be worn all year round, but it’s ideal for those summer nights. I’ve worn the black version since 2018, and it’s still one that I gravitate to when the sun goes down. 

Have you invested in a pair yet? If not, then I need to know what you’ve been wearing all summer. I live in mine, and they give the pair from The Row a run for its £800 price tag. 

I'm obsessed with the collar and sleeves. This would also look great worn with trainers during these tropical storms.

Team this with an oversized shirt and silk midi skirt for Zoë Kravitz vibes.

Wedges and basket bag for a barbecue, ankle-tie heels and clutch for a wedding, trainers and oversized tote to town. You will never regret investing in a Rixo.

When jeans and a tee are your thing, grab a pair of '90s-style heels for the evening.

Suede fishermen sandals to wear now, with milkmaid dresses, and in Autumn with jeans.

At first, I laughed, now I can’t stop thinking about them.

So simple and sexy. Pull your hair back in a sleek bun, gold hoops and flat sandals.
