Black trousers. The type of thing you often feel you need to buy but might not passionately want to buy. These versatile wardrobe basics are a good starting point for an outfit. For a/w there is enough colour and luscious texture to inject as much passion as you want into these trusty favourites. An oversized cosy knit is a useful layering piece and this kimono style adds a structural play on proportions to tailored trousers. Blend in a vibrant shade of purple in soft fluid silk. The blouse is a key autumn/winter must thanks to the boho feel of the 70s and the moodier flavour of the Victoriana trend. Let’s not stop at the regal purple. Ditch practical neutral shades when it comes to footwear and snap up these opulent heels from ASOS. Perfect too with a pair of jeans and fisherman’s jumper… Or that all important LBD.  Natalie x
