New season must haves

With autumn in full swing I can’t think of a better time to start planning your capsule wardrobe for the cold season. Think of it as the base for all stylish and highly sophisticated outfits you’ll be creating for weeks to come. And because it’s autumn and winter we’re talking about, keep in mind that freezing your uhm… behind off is not a very cool look. Warm layers beautifully put together is the way.

To spare you all the hard work I’ve teamed up with Kaleidoscope and styled three covetable pieces from their latest collection in an off duty meets chic kinda look.

THE CASHMERE JUMPER – you’ll find this on all autumn must have lists for an army of reasons: it looks and feels luxurious, can be easily accessorized, works for the office as well as dressed down for off duty activities. Running errands or picking up fresh flowers on a Sunday morning has never looked better.

THE NAVY LEATHER BAG – more often than not, navy is talked about as an alternative to black, not getting nearly enough credit for the wonders it can do to a look. If you’re thinking of investing in a leather bag this season go for a navy one that will tick as many boxes as possible: big enough to shelter your daily can’t-live-without belongings while not overpowering your figure, appropriate to take as hand luggage on your next flight, expensive looking minus the overly priced tag – great quality leather and gold hardware should do the trick.

THE FAUX FUR STOLE – if you’re a big fan of layering then you probably have a few faux fur stoles patiently waiting in your shopping cart, hoping they made the cut. Besides the obvious warmth and fluffiness, a stole it’s also a great way to update an old coat and make it feel all shiny and new again.

And because no outfit can be completed without a stop at the shoe department, a snake print pair of boots will sit nicely with all the greys and navys we talked about. Go for a sturdy, chunky heel if you’re planning on wearing them for more than two hours and always try them on with both dresses and trousers.
