The Little Mermaid

We won’t sleep easy until we have this shimmery, Ariel-esque wrap skirt in our wardrobes. From oversized navy jumpers to tucked-in jersey tees, there’s nothing it wouldn’t go with.

Sgt Pepper’s Stylish Ladies Club

Seriously, this woman’s Instagram is going to do serious damage to our bank balance. Long military-inspired coats are what we need to beat these foggy mornings.

Tonal metallics is a trend we definitely need to experiment with this month, especially when it comes to gunmetal grey. It’s a little bit grungy, but still disco-ready (and that chevron bag is the icing on the cake).

Under wraps

Deconstructed shirts make such a style statement that they’re the perfect bedfellow to crisp trousers or figure-grazing jeans. We’re going to be loading up on them this season, and wearing a different one Monday to Friday.

Aztec-inspired gold

Proof that a printed chapan will add edge to any simple tee (and that cute kitsch necklace doesn’t hurt either). 

Coming up rosy

Head-to-toe pink sounds rather Barbie-esque on paper, but our own picture editor Diana proves it’s incredibly chic and elegant when done well (pared-back pastel shades are the key).

All that glitters

What’s better than one sequinned piece? Two of course, as this stylish gal demonstrates. Sure, it’s heavy on the sparkle – not that we’re complaining – but yet somehow doesn’t feel OTT for daytime (the trainers and plain white knit help dial it back).
