Snap up a statement jacket, whether it’s a wild and whacky print, a must-have animal print or one of the season’s updated denim jackets – think ripped, frayed, embellished and oversized. I bought this Zara animal print biker style the moment it hit the site. It’s fabulous. I am wearing it to breathe new season life into my little black dresses as well as using to vamp up my skinny jeans – great for a new take on airport chic. This print also clashes perfectly with contrast patterns. Cover-ups are definitely the new accessory for autumn/winter. Mind you, so are inspired-by-Gucci loafers. It all makes for a stylish update on an off duty weekend look. Natalie x

Having a go-to casual outfit takes the stress out of dressing. Break away from jeans and leggings with a dress. This piece with it’s gentle waist-accentuating detail will take you from day to night – if you want it to. Topshop has some great inexpensive trainers with a twist from sparkly embellishments to these gold tipped styles. It’s a fun way to dabble in the fashion-trainer trend if you haven’t already done so. A clean neutral palette gives a sophisticated edge to this low-key look. Natalie x

Give your summer pieces one last style spin before we start layering on the cardigans and scarves. Tops are a great way to give your wardrobes a colour or print update whilst  more low-key colours like greys and black will ‘glue’ looks together.  This gorgeous blue works wonders with pastels but it is also a good piece to contrast with darker neutrals. Add a bit of sparkle with your clutch or go for this quilted shoulder bag which also comes in a sharp shiny silver. Natalie x

Have a look in your wardrobe and dig out those denim jackets. It’s your best summer cover-up friend and blended into this look makes it perfect for day or night. This is a stylish midi length dress and that belt detail at the waist injects a bit of definition into your shape. Vamp things up with these neutral toned lace-up sandals. Mango has some great bags in at the moment and we are all swooning over this grey bow detail shoulder bag . It comes in black faux-leather too and doubles up as a clutch. Finish your look with a statement earring. Natalie x

There’s something about a blue sky, sunshine and an ice cold Coke! So this t-shirt at Topshop caught my eye. Speaking of Coca Cola, the most liked Instagram picture ever is Selena Gomez’s pic of herself sipping on her  Coke from a bottle personalised with her song lyrics. It’s on 5.2 million likes so far. Retro slogan tees are a fun way to do a sunshine look and this pop of red is perfect. Dress it up with a barely-there heel for lunching or dining al fresco. Natalie x

More often than not it just takes one accessory or one piece of clothing to give a look a style revamp. This red leather biker jacket does just the trick. Going for a colour gives a new twist to what has already become one of our favourite 24/7 capsule wardrobe cover-ups. Keep the rest of your colour palette low key. Try out this waist-sculpting navy dress from Topshop. It’s an ideal dress-up (gold sandals + faux-fur shrug + clutch) piece as well as being a perfect way to add a luxe flavour to your day looks. These navy suede Zara flats have a fabulous cut-out detail for that added interest. Simply add paparazzi friendly sunglasses and this week-to-weekend shoulder bag. Natalie x

Build up your wardrobe basics with some in between season must-haves. Note: just because they’re basics doesn’t mean they’re boring. This floaty blouse in an on-trend khaki is just the piece for draping over skinny jeans or wearing tucked into a slinky midi-length leather pencil skirt. Splash out when it comes to your layers – add a texture with leather or buttery soft suede like this tailored jacket. It’s the ideal day-to-night and vice versa piece. Right about now you’ll start notice a huge selection of fabulous oversized scarves hitting the stores. I just saw a fabulous leopard print one in Zara, great for adding a print to a look. This scarf in an earthy mix of grey and khaki from Mint Velvet is the type of piece you’ll keep in onboard luggage and your work totes too. Use your trainers to add a bit of bling. Natalie x
