In an effort to will myself out of wearing coats, I’ve been returning to my good old favourite Zara biker style jackets in bouclé or wool, preferably not in black, then layering up with a scarf. It’s time to move winter out of our wardrobes and I cannot wait to ditch the opaque tights either. This jacket from Banana Republic is one of those key transitional cover-ups and it will work a dream with an occasion dress too. Invest in a lightweight cashmere jumper with a sparkly twist. Zara’s bags and shoes at the moment are simply fabulous and this particular cross-body piece is a great way to use an accessory to add a quirky element of interest to outfits. Natalie x

QUESTION: I got a blouse just like this in Zara, only difference it it has a white colour and cuffs. I love the blouse but it is quite a statement, I have worn it with black skinnies tucked in with an obi belt but I am not sure if it looks great.
I showed my sister and she said maybe wear a jumper over it!!

ANSWER: The blouse you’ve bought sounds fab, it’s a great purchase for Autumn. It would be a shame to cover it up with a jumper as you’ll only see the white collar and cuffs peeping through. There are lots of great ways you can turn this top into a versatile piece within your wardrobe, here are some suggestions:

1. Mango blazer, £44.99: – Rather than a jumper, why not try a stylish blazer? The addition of a tailored jacket brings an instant cool edge to your look. As your ensemble have a monochrome theme going on, we’d recommend a silk or chiffon scarf in a deep rich shade such as aubergine or forest green:

2. Zara blazer, £79.99: – Khaki is a neutral, versatile shade that can be a nice change from black without being too garish. The long lapel and side zips add interesting detailing and a blazer such as this is easy to transform from day to night with the addition of an oversized clutch and a chunky cuff bracelet:

3. River Island skirt, £25: – An alternative to a pair of black trousers would be to wear your blouse over a leather skirt. We love this faux option by River Island as it is chic yet won’t break the bank! To finish off the look, pop on a pair of block heeled ankle boots and a statement necklace:

4. Kurt Geiger boots, £160: – Boots are always a welcome shoe option when the weather starts to turn. Grey will nicely compliment your shirt and is a really easy colour to wear with either your black skinnies, blue jeans or the skirt we suggested above:

5. J.Crew necklace, £55: – a chunky necklace will finish the outfit perfectly. J.Crew have a wonderful selection that have a high-end feel without the price tag. This necklace is also super simple to pop in your work back as it will transform a boardroom shift dress info a little cocktail number. Karen x
