ARM CANDY INVESTMENT: Like cashmere coats or diamond rings, your bag is an irrefutable investment item, so spoil yourself with fashion’s most covetable brands, such as Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Valentino or Saint Laurent.
Stella McCartney’s logo python-effect shoulder bag, £715, from Harvey Nichols embraces the designer’s playful, quirky nature and is made from eco-conscious faux leather.
PRINT WORKS: Complex and covetable, this season’s powerful prints pep up dresses, jackets and accessories, adding a new edge to your wardrobe. Deconstructed animal prints and florals are cleverly worked with digital.
This striking abstract snake print dress, £210, from James Lakeland, is cut to a flattering shift silhouette. Keep it simple with a classic black clutch and strappy heels.
CHECK THIS OUT: A perennial fashion favourite, English-inspired heritage fabric continued to hold court across the new season catwalks. Look out for traditional tweeds, houndstooth, checks and tartans on cocoon-style blazers and trans-seasonal coats.
From Paul Smith, this houndstooth double-breasted cotton-blend coat, £550, is cut for a relaxed tailored-fit and finished with a striking silky orange and fuchsia lining.
PALE & INTERESTING: An easy alternative to this season’s neon brights, opt for shades of caramel, beige, off-white and stone. The minimal palette is very much in the spotlight for SS20, showcased on the catwalks by fashion’s big hitters Salvatore Ferragamo, Helmut Lang, Prada and Bottega Veneta.
Give the nude trend texture with this sequin bolero, £195, from James Lakeland. For a modern look, pair with a chiffon blouse and jeans for cocktail hour chic.
THE MUST-HAVE DRESS: The versatile cut of a midi dress means it works from day to night, making this timeless silhouette an indispensable wardrobe essential. Undeniably elegant and always stylish, it’s a masterclass in contemporary elegance.
Free People’s pink georgette Celina dress, £200, from Harvey Nichols is delicately detailed with sequin embellishments, voluminous balloon sleeves and a tiered ruffle hem.
