1. The Jumper
There's nothing more comforting than a cozy jumper on a cold day. Try an oversized, roll-neck version with a pair of cropped kick-flares and a block heel pump or a maxi and sandals. When it comes to colour, try embracing hues that will last you season after season; think grey marle, indigo, forest green and black.
2. The Blazer
If there's one piece worth the investment this season, it's a blazer. Thanks to Balenciaga, the new silhouette is menswear inspired but with a feminine edge due to an accentuated waist. Layer your double breasted tuxedo jacket with a slinky slip (trimmed with lace) or a high waisted midi skirt. Finish with a pair of black patent-leather boots.
3. The Trouser
The LBD of the pant world, a cropped black trouser will see you through any of your wardrobe woes. For work try with a simple white t-shirt, blazer, brogues and oversized sunnies. For a night-out pair with a silk cami, leather jacket, metallic ankle-strap sandals and mini top-handle bag.
4. The Dress
The knit dress is to Autumn what the wrap dress is to Summer. Easy to wear, chic and a total failsafe. For the most flattering style stick with dark, block colours like navy, black or grey and when it comes to cut, the longer the better - try a midi or full length version. Wear with white sneakers and an oversized denim jacket.
5. The Loafer
A total no-brainer when it comes to cold weather footwear. Give any outfit a preppy finish by adding a classic black leather loafer. Transeasonal and timeless, they're perfect with your black high waisted skinnies, logo t-shirt and bomber jacket. Tip: try with a sheer polka dot or fish-net sock.
