As we hit the halfway point of November, it seems as though winter has finally caught up with us. Temperatures are dropping below 10ºC, piles of leaves are congregating on kerbs and Christmas decorations are starting to appear on high streets across the country. Naturally, this time of year requires a bit of a pivot clothing-wise, and we've spent the last week brushing up on our layering game and digging out sturdy boots, chunky knits and enveloping coats. If, in the course of your cold-weather sorting, you realise that you need to fill in a couple of holes, then allow me to show you some of my favourite pieces from high-street heroes Mango, Reiss and Marks and Spencer.
Covering everything from party-ready separates to versatile cashmere knits, I've tried to hand-pick items that I believe will not only feel suitably fresh this season but will also continue to look fab for many years to come. For me, this means knee-high boots that will complement both midi dresses and denim, wool coats that can be thrown over anything (this Mango number is a particular highlight) and versatile denim that can be dressed up and dressed down with ease. So if you're looking for a little guidance when it comes to filling in those gaps in your winter wardrobe, scroll down to see and shop my new-season edit from Mango, M&S and Reiss.
