Donna Wallace, Accessories Editor, Elle UK

"The blazer is ripe for a return and Ellery is the label making me flutter right now. Combined, this is a trophy jacket of dreams. I never thought that a black jacket could make me feel joyful! I plan to wear it with a flared trouser and ankle boots." — Donna Wallace

''Safe to say I'm pretty obsessed with this Shrimps coat. I've always loved a classic camel or navy crombie, but they're everywhere now. I'm over it and need to find a new coat update. Cue this crochet number with snazzy floral print and faux-fur collar, it can't fail to bring a smile to my face when it's no doubt a wet February weekend at the Brewer Street car park venue in Soho.'' — Lucia Debieux

"This fashion week what I really want to wear is this amazing slip from Jacquemus. It captures the '90s mood of the season in an offbeat way with its asymmetric cut and slightly off proportions. I’ll be wearing it over a skinny roll-neck, with ankle boots and a woollen overcoat. It’s still February, after all." — Lucy Reber

"Before fashion week, I always look to buy something I can get a lot of wear out of and feel comfortable in. French label Vetements has just landed in stores, and I'm obsessed with the whole collection. These jeans have an amazing cut and I can pair them with so many different looks." — Lily Russo

Amy Bannerman, Fashion Director, Cosmopolitan UK

"I have been dreaming about these Gucci loafers for the last couple of months—they’re the kind of shoe that changes your life! They feel like a coming-of-age piece, and I just turned 35 so I’m thinking they’ll take the edge off." — Amy Bannerman
