The Fashion Edit: Laid-back Luxe

Autumn is well and truly here, and it is the season of mixed seasons. One second the sun is splitting the trees, and the next we are bundled up in our winter woolies, clutching a steaming cup of coffee.

Which in all seasons are fun, but they are hard to dress for. I personally like layering up different textures to keep things interesting - as we can all get lost in big scarves & thick sweaters!

The Laid-back Luxe Edit

The first item in my edit is a woolen coat. I think these are essential for the colder months. Easy to layer and even easier to snuggle up in, a big-ass blanket coat is what you will find me in this season!

For layering under I love sticking to the shirt/jeans combo. You can easily layer a warm cami under a shirt for even more warmth. And jeans are a no-brainer. I like sticking to black jeans in winter as they go great with leather booties and a great base colour.

J Brand Amelia Jeans - £190

When it comes to footwear I like keeping it casual with a smart pair of Gazelles. A staple in any fashion girls wardrobe, they are super easy to throw on and if in a neutral colour, will go with everything.

Adidas Originals - £80

And lastly, for accessories, I like to keep it simple but with a luxe edge. Gucci is killing it with their revamped bags and this one is no different. Keep it black and keep it small for a chic look.

A scarf is an essential for trans-seasonal dressing. I love Alexander McQueen for these so it was a given it would be featured in my edit. Keep it black to match your bag, but keep it light to avoid bulk. A sparse but non-offensive pattern will create texture and interest - but won't look garish to avoid looking cheap.

And finally, we have jewelry. I like to keep it classy. Let one item be a pop of 'classy' colour to draw attention, and keep earrings to a minimum. A simple hoop is a classic edge on an outfit to keep it current and elegant - we may be wearing trainers, but we are still ladies here!

Pascale Monvoisin 9-karat Rose gold ring - £505
Carolina Bucci Rose Gold Hoop Earrings - £725

And that is how you can wrap up warm while still looking cool...
