There are hundreds of thousands of influencers in the social ether, but there are only a handful who we religiously stalk in order to virtually steal the clothes off their backs. Our primary target is Monikh—the London-based styling and shopping guru who seeks out the very coolest buys from every corner of the retail world. From her inspiring tips on rewearing her well-chosen investment items to hunting down the coolest high-street pieces, her Instagram feed, @monikh, and website are a veritable hotbed of things you’re going to want to purchase immediately (and will never regret). Each month, Monikh will share her new picks exclusively for you…
So this summer hasn’t exactly been the one we thought it would be. The heatwaves have been followed by weeks of rain, creating that muggy feeling in the air which goes with no outfit whatsoever. However, forever the sunshine optimist, I have heard that we are getting one more heatwave, yes the rest of August is meant to be full of sunshine, and I really need it before we enter those long and dark winter months.
Then again, the realist in me also knows that those sunny few weeks will be short lived, and I’m sure I’m not the only one already looking forward to that leap into the Autumn/Winter wardrobe. So this month’s edit is all about pieces you can easily transition into the start of your cold-weather wardrobe, because we’re always thinking of the next fashion step.
How chic is this entire look! Wear the top with jeans, the jacket with dresses and the skirt with thin knits when the weather gets cooler. But I’ll be making a real statement by wearing them all at once.
Is it time to bring back the leather mini? I think so! I wore mine most days in the summer of 2015, and I miss that look. Combined with chunky sandals and a silk top, it was summer day-to-night at its finest.
There’s nothing worse than piling more makeup on in this hot weather, especially when you took so long getting that natural look. So when your skin starts shinning in a bad way, grab one of these blot sheets to absorb that extra oil. Much better than adding more powder.
