October Must Haves

This month’s Must Have list is brought to you by none other than our glamorous resident stylist Ingrid Hoey. Read all about Ingrid here.

“This list could be quite long this month as the stock in the shops is just amazing at the moment! I have tried to narrow it down to my true favourites. Here goes:

Sheer spot tights from Topshop

All the major designers from House of Holland to Ashish to Anna Sui featured patterned tights on their autumn runways.

I found some cute sheer spot tights in Topshop for only €12. I adore them! They will bring any little black dress bang up to date.

For instant catwalk glamour, wear these with a black leather skirt, or indeed any black dress.

Wolford Grace Leggings

How hot are these? I think they are the sexiest leggings I have come across in a long time! At £199 they are a luxury indulgence but I think they are worth the investment. I would wear these with a black boyfriend jacket, a long white T-shirt and a statement Joanne Hynes neckpiece (€295 pictured left).

Christopher Kane for Topshop

Clutches are everywhere again this season. Bag yourself this rock chick version from Christopher Kane from Topshop (£50); a bargain from Topshop’s UK website!

It ticks all the trends for this season; studded, rock chick and leather (it even has leather tassels!).


Autumn’s must have buy is a leather skirt or dress. Agnes Deyn’s leather skirt from French Connection featured on September’s Must Have list so I’ve chosen a different one.

I love this skirt from ASOS (£87) which is very similar to a leather skirt that Gwyneth Paltrow was photographed in. It’s an investment buy so look for classic shapes like a pencil skirt”.
