I've worked in fashion for over two decades, and despite a constant flurry of new trends and styles, when it comes to truly dressing for your own wants and needs, what I come back to again and again is a collection of staples that help bring my capsule wardrobe together. Each season, I like to invest in a few considered pieces that will stand the test of time as well as top up my selection of good-quality basics. This month, I've crafted an edit of pieces, just for you, made up of items I either already own and love or that I want to invest in this season. From a timeless trench coat to the perfect white tee, these pieces will be my go-to this season and beyond.
