This season is all about forties glamour, the return to the seventies, tartan, continuing with colour blocking and of course prints!
If you donâ€™t fancy being a slave to fashion but would like some key pieces that are sure to spice-up your current wardrobe for the coming winter, then I recommend the following pieces:
1. A watch
A good watch is a classic fashion statement. As an accessory, they can make a simple but bold style statement. Often over-looked, so many watches I see today are middle of the road and just plain dull. Instead, why not make a style impact by looking at the ladies watch range from Michael Kors. It simply will not disappoint â€“ itâ€™s such a strong range that you are bound to find something to suit your taste.
A lime green belted dress, at Â£60 from Julien MacDonald at Debenhams adds a touch of 70â€™s to your look, and is set off by the gold metallic belt. This dress has lovely detail: the bow, the button down shirt and long sleeves with fitted cuffs.
3. Polka Dot
A shirt in polka dot is such a snazzy look. Itâ€™s both classic and very up to date. I like the Polka Dot shirt from Zara at Â£39.99. You can easily wear this shirt under a gilet or boyfriend blazer jacket. Alternatively, opt for a simple black and white polka dot tshirt, with black dots. Such a strong look for this season and can be worn off-duty and on â€“ how you wear is up to you!
Mint Velvet has some lovely blouses that are good for updating a wardrobe, making you feel very feminine. These are so soft to wear but also have the added benefit of covering your arms, whilst being see-through. This is a grown-up sexy look that a lot of my clients absolutely love!
Kurt Geiger has the ultimate shoe selection for when you canâ€™t find anything. I adore these Sooty boots, Â£190. They are good for elongating your legs with jeans, dresses or skirts.
6. Colour Blocking
Wallis do a lovely violet tier tunic that is on sale currently for a bargain price of Â£20. This is lovely item to wear with a purple bolero, as this colour combination is very striking! Worn with a pair of skinny jeans and pumps and you will have perfected the effortless day-time chic look.
7. Pencil Skirt
Lastly, invest in a classic black bandage skirt, from Mint Velvet at Â£79. The pencil skirt is the epitome of 40â€™s glamour. It is not only beautiful to wear but is hugely complementary on almost anyone. My clients love wearing this skirt and it really is the best pencil skirt I have seen in a few years! If you go for this, you wonâ€™t regret it, as itâ€™s a good investment piece too.
