How do you wear the spring 2014 collections when we’re only just approaching the coldest part of the year? It’s a fashion conundrum many of us will be facing right now, as next season’s styles are already starting to arrive in stores. And they look sooo tempting! I suggest investing in a selection of neutral basics, which can be mixed-and-matched with a few well-placed pastels. I love Gucci’s metallic stripe sweater and Givenchy’s patchwork print pencil skirt. They’re both fairly transeasonal, and can be worn whatever the weather.

Also, have you spotted Mexicana’s cowboy boots on Net-A-Porter yet? I’m well and truly obsessed! They currently have nine different styles on site, making it almost impossible to chose a favourite pair. If you’re addicted to Nashville and love Isabelle Marant’s laid back style you’re sure to love this footwear brand. Buy a pair now to wear throughout winter, and then dig them out again come festival season.
