autumn style: knee boots and a shift dress

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.

autumn style: a classic burgundy shade for fall

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.

autumn style: what to wear to work on a monday

It can be really depressing when you have an office job and need to decide what to wear to work on a Monday, especially in a job that requires you to wear ‘formal’ clothes. That doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish, or that you must wear one of those (in my opinion) hideous ‘women’s suits’. Dress simply in a black dress, tights and oxfords. Add simple jewellery that doesn’t make too much of a statement. Add a great looking leather bag. The final touch for a bit of colour and classic style is a scarf that goes well with your bag, and well manicured nails. Dressing well is going to make you feel great about having to start the work week after a fabulous weekend.

autumn style: wear grey without being boring

Grey seems to be the colour of the season but this Stella McCartney ‘sweatshirt’ is anything but bland. Pair with sleek accessories and a pop of colour at the neck and on the hand to complete the subtle elegance of the look

summer style: wear bold stripes with accessories

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.

spring style: pastels and print

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.

spring style: wear pink without being too ‘girly’

Pink is so often given a bad rep, and it really doesn’t have to be ‘only for blondes’ or for ‘girly girls’. Wear it in your own way, and it can create a fashion statement without turning you into a cliche.

Wear pink with panache! Make it casual chic by wearing the Arati Devasher pink Birdies scarf with black… polkadot trousers, a tank top, and a chunky cuff, topped off with sleek patent Oxfords. The pink lip accents the colour and means you’re wearing it – it’s not wearing you.
