Where has the time gone? It’s November already, and we’re heading into the depths of winter in a mere thirty days or so. Now, what better way to brighten up hump day – Wednesday, the dreary mid-week grim day – than by wearing bright yellow paired with a complementary scarf in black, white and red to tie in the black tights, bag and shoes.

Having worn my current knee-high boots for five autumn and winter seasons, it’s time to look for a new pair. That got me thinking about what to pair with a great pair of boots, and the ultimate for autumn (or fall if you’re in the Americas) is a shift dress with bright lipstick and a universally versatile silk scarf.

Red and burgundy are classic autumn colours. Mimicking the colours of fallen leaves, they bring to mind cosy, festive events and a feeling of warmth in the gloom of approaching winter. Pair cool blues and greens to bring out the deepest tones, and add light grey or white accessories so you don’t look bogged down.

Wondering how to wear monochrome stripes with accessories? Styling a statement necklace in a bold colour can make your outfit pop. Just add black accessories with one accent colour theme running through the rest. Don’t amp up the makeup, just let the clothes speak.

Wimbledon is the event of the summer for tennis aficionados. Whites are de rigeur for the players here, and it’s pretty fashion forward to wear white as an onlooker too. Here’s an outfit that keeps you looking casual and chic with a jacket just in case it rains (it is England, after all).

Glastonbury, the ever popular five-day festival of contemporary performing arts that takes place near Pilton, Somerset, has been an annual pilgrimage for music-lovers since its inception in the 1970s. These days it’s the millennials who are attending, but style is always at the forefront. Here’s an outfit that hopes for sun, but prepares for rain, and celebrates the bohemian roots of the famous festival with denim and folk embroidery.

A camel coat seems to be the item that everyone wants this season, and styling them with casual jeans and a pristine white shirt can be both classic and boring. Amp up the style with a colourful statement necklace and pair with camel bag and shoes to keep the casual vibe going.

The weather is pretty depressing in London, but let’s take a moment and think about Spring. You’ll definitely make an impression in this chevron skirt, paired with a pale blouse to tone down the pattern. Adding pale blue accessories and nude pumps accentuates the pastel blouse without losing the impact of the bold skirt.

T— is from India, and he’s a dapper gent. He’s sent me this photograph wearing the green scarf I made him, as a casual alternative to a tie. Paired with a classic corduroy shirt and tweed jacket, he’s definitely effortlessly stylish.
S— is a good friend and also occasionally models for me, as you might have seen in my online shop and on instagram. She loves her satin fish scarf, and has styled it casually in this photograph, taken when out for a coffee with friends. I do love it when clients send me photographs.
