If you’ve spent all summer honing and toning and tanning your limbs – and even if you haven’t – strategically placed pleats and splits are here to give a subtle flash of flesh without giving the game away. These split front skirts are a chic way to shake things up on the work wardrobe front (think tucked in fitted shirt plus high heel courts) or to go for a paired back evening look like here. Use the array of fabulous texture, pattern and bling this a/w season to dress things up. These 24/7 glitzy platform sandals are a must-have wardrobe addition if you are looking for a quick-fix new season update and a faux-fur clutch is the perfect over-the-top style statement. Natalie x

A new clutch is always a great way to scratch that “I really feel like shopping itch” as well as updating any look. Make sure that you have a versatile go-with-anything piece in a black or gold that will carry you through all seasons. After that, consider the clutch your new accessory in the same way that you would a pair of earrings or print scarf. It’s the perfect way to introduce a pattern to your outfit – think leopard print – or a new season shade…or a fabulous quirky touch – think fruit. The novelty clutch is having its moment in the sun thanks to the likes of Anya Hindmarch and Charlotte Olympia. The high street has also got your fashion fruit basket covered! A slice of watermelon will work your outfits day-to-night. Which way will you go? Natalie x
