Let’s discuss over-the-knee boots. They may at first appear quite high maintenance, but there are so many great styles out there that they’re fast becoming the must-have fashion item of the season. Style with roomy loose fit dresses and tights for a casual day look, or slip over skinny jeans and either add a fine knit jumper or go for a contrasting volume in something chunky and oversized. This Mickey Mouse jumper from Uniqlo is a cute update to a basic weekend knit. The sleeker skinnier over-the-knee stretch boot is the perfect balance to all of those supersized, boxy statement coats or your favourite cosy parka. Natalie x

We’ve been on a boots buying frenzy in the office. Little black ankle boots to be precise. From Topshop to Isabel Marant we’ve just about got all of our respective style angles covered. This Claude Pierlot pair has a chic scalloped edge for a different take on a classic Chelsea style. Jeans’ lengths seem to be hovering around the ankle and with a straighter cut it means these styles will sit perfectly just above an ankle boot. Next on the hit list will no doubt be a scarf. Something bold and bright to introduce a new season mood. Look for a colour (if it is not a natural grey or black) that will work it’s way through your wardrobe and your favourite shades from week-to-weekend. Natalie x

Grunge. You either loved it the first time around in the 90’s … or ….had no idea what to make of it. Whatever the case this trend has made its way over the years into our wardrobes from biker boots to slinky silky boudoir style slips not to mention those checks. It’s never been easier to blend grunge accents into your casual wardrobe. These boots from Topshop have been flying off the shelves and are a hands down winner with fashion bloggers… if instagram is anything to go by. Use an oversized scarf to add that touch of tartan or check to your look and cover-up with a cosy denim jacket. These pieces are the perfect partner to a run-around jersey t-shirt dress in warm wintry shade. Natalie x

2015-10-14-one-look-rtHave you found a new season cover-up yet? We love the 70s inspired faux-shearling biker styles out at the moment. This piece from Zara comes in a stylish soft grey (and tan too) and you’ll find similar pieces at River Island and M&S. The roomier oversized fit means you can layer up perfectly over chunkier knit jumpers. Why not take all that fluffy cosiness one step further with a fun H&M faux-fur bag… Natalie x

It’s good to see high street brands producing quality pieces that will stand the test of time. Who doesn’t love a grey day? This colour will multi-task its way through your wardrobe from bold brights to cool neutrals. Mango’s take on luxury comes in the shape of this single breasted wool coat. In terms of high street cashmere, personally I cannot fault M&S’s other than the fact that I wish they would do more pieces in simple basic colours. This cashmere dress will look fabulous with high heeled boots or Gucci-like platform sandals and lurex tights for a chic evening look, courts for work and a run around ankle boot for the weekend. Add a cosy hot pink with this oversized scarf from Joules. Natalie x

There really are no rules when it comes to ultra-versatile wardrobe pieces. Take this black stretch wool dress by DVF. It’s the perfect work-to-party piece. Add in a must-have faux-fur jacket which will update casual looks and also give that finishing touch to evening outfits. The two-tone pumps keep this outfit in the daytime zone … but evening-friendly too if heels aren’t your thing. Complete your look with a shoulder bag with a hint of animal print and a quirky statement earring. You can just as easily switch the shoes for a trainer, or an ankle boot or strappy evening sandal for 3 totally different moods. Natalie x

2016-10-07-one-look-rtIf you’re looking for a new coat with a catwalk feel but timeless appeal the peacoat has all this and more. We love the way it sharpens up a casual look without feeling too severe but also lends a laid-back edge to evening outfits. The cut-away detail at the front of these  boots adds a vampy effect to you overall look. It’s also all very Gianvito Rossi – but at a high street price. Skinny knits balance out the soft volume of a Mom style jean. You’ll start to notice bags with collegiate stripe handles influenced by the trend-setting Gucci collection. Both H&M and River Island do great versions. Natalie x
