Autumn/Winter Dressing Made Easy: The Capsule Fall 2013 Wardrobe

As the days begin to get shorter and the weather starts cools down it’s easy to find yourself in a style rut. Although I have a wardrobe bursting with clothes I always get that “nothing to wear” feeling as the seasons change. Autumn/Winter dressing isn’t that difficult to master if you have a capsule wardrobe in place, however, and that’s why I suggest everyone invests in the following basics: a parka, leather trousers, a striped long sleeved T-shirt, red lipstick, a grey knit, a chunky scarf, biker boots and a fail-safe party dress.

Get these classic items in place and you’ll spend less time getting dressed in the morning – and who doesn’t want an extra 10 minutes in bed? The following designs are some of my favourites, but you’ll find variations of these looks in most stores, whatever your budget…

    I can’t live without my heeled Chelsea boots! High enough to avoid the London rain, sturdy enough not to fall over in the London rain! Love your choice of lipstick. Definitely a must have when the weather is miserable; perks up the whole outfit!
