A dress that’s the perfect blank canvas is a great investment piece for your wardrobe. This navy blue fit-and-flare update on the shirt dress can take you from a weekend lunch (white skate shoes or a tan wedge) to a wedding guest or evening out look. Play around with your accessories. Add bold brights for a summery feel or stick to metallics for a touch of evening glamour. Natalie x

Embroidery and appliqué are livening up our must-have wardrobe basics, from bright floral needlepoint on shoes and biker jackets to cute and cheeky patchwork appliqué on denim and outerwear. These details give a softer edge to tougher pieces. It’s like wearing an emoji. Whilst admittedly this Alice + Olivia parka costs a bomb I couldn’t resist showing it to you. You can achieve the same effect with your own parka – just add badges £6! But, you’ll also find some fabulous pieces on the high street like this badge detail coat from V by Very £60. They have a longer style too at £70. River Island has gone wild with floral embroidery, and all those blooms give a pretty blush to this khaki coat £48.

The details don’t stop here. Criss-cross ties, ribbons, corsets, you name it…all the pieces to give a cheeky twist to your favourite investment cashmere jumpers. Looking to the high street I am still on Zara’s wish list for these tie-front jumpers both in black £25.99 and a breton stripe. Go on, join me. I first saw these boots on thelondoner.com and that’s why they are here now – the perfect weekend style. Natalie x

2016-11-01-one-look-rtOne of the most popular items of knitwear at the moment is the slinky black roll neck jumper. It has a 60’s feel to it and slips easily under slinky slip dresses as well as tucking perfectly into trousers and jeans without adding bulk. These Zara heels have an on-trend block heel, show them off by styling with ankle length trousers and jeans. Don’t play it safe when it comes to accessories, you have the sleek template of black trousers + black knit, so amp it all up with a statement earring and small bag with big glitz. Finally, blend in an autumnal hue with this gorgeous teal Hobbs jacket. Natalie x
