September Must Haves

This month we have carefully selected some standout pieces to give you some ideas for your autumn/winter wardrobe.

1. Pencil skirt

Pencil skirts are a wardrobe staple if you’d like to achieve a sleek silhouette for office or evening wear.  This autumn, the pencil skirt comes in tough yet luxurious fabric, leather.

British model Agyness Deyn wore her French Connection Leather High Waisted Pencil Skirt to the Inglorious Basterds film premiere  in New York with none other than a Rocky Horror Show T-shirt!  She finished off the outfit with a Lulu Guinness’ Red Lips Clutch and pair of Mechante of London Elektra Rose Python shoes.

If you’re not keen on the edgy leather look, Coast is our go-to shop this month for a black, satin pencil skirt (€99).

2. Stocking up on all things cashmere

Thinking of the months ahead, we’d like to get ahead of the game and nab some luxurious cashmere items to see us through this season.

This red Diane von Furstenburg 100% cashmere cardigan wrap dress will certainly see us through in style, €149 from which has an Aladdin’s Cave of nearly new designer wear. This DVF dress originally cost €500! So if you’re a size 10 and you know a good thing when you see it, grab it now!

3. Layered necklace look

Layer up, layer up. This is how to wear your chokers and necklaces this season. In the aftermath of the Coco Chanel movie, wearing layers of pearls is having its moment right now. So find all those strings of pearls that you have and wear as many as you can.

Alternatively, you can buy a ready-made “multi-row” pearl necklace – as opposed to Chanels pearl coloured ones,  we especially like the metallic pearl like this necklace from Wallis (€23, £20).
