Tanya Burr started her career in beauty, with her video tutorials and product reviews, but increasingly over the past few years, she has been gaining a following for her style and outfit ideas too. Having worked with the likes of Dior, she has a strong tie with luxury fashion brands and has been a firm fixture at fashion events like the British Fashion Awards, however personally I find her every-day outfit ideas just as inspiring.
When it comes to her casual outfits, Tanya sticks to a capsule of basics which can be easily mixed and matched. The building blocks of her outfits are always her denim (she tends to wear high-waisted straight leg jeans) and her trainers, and then she tends to switch things up with her outerwear. This year she has been rotating between her Arket leather blazer, khaki bomber, black puffer coat and collection of tailored long-line coats. She tends to lean towards classic basics, mixing designer pieces by the likes of Prada and Rag and Bone, with high-street staples from Mango and Arket. Keep scrolling to see the throw-on basics Tanya has been living in this autumn.
"I love this delicate and pretty knit from Reformation, but the wide-leg leather trousers are the hero piece of this look for me. They are from Mango and are just a more relaxed way to wear leather than my usual skinny leather trousers. I like to wear them with my Nike Air Force 1s, which I wear almost daily, to keep the look casual."
"Trackpants and a beanie are essentials at this time of year for me, particularly when we are staying at home a lot. ACNE do the best beanies and these are my favourite tracksuit bottoms in my collection, Adidas is always a winner."
"As much as I love oversize sweatshirts, there's also a time and place for pretty and chic knitwear. Musier do the most beautiful knitted tops and I haven't stopped wearing these '90s-style jeans from Re/Done since I got them."
"A long-line dropped shoulder coat is key for me this time of year, I have one in grey and black from Zara and love that you can throw them on over any outfit and they help you to feel put together, but the dropped shoulder effect keeps it from being too smart. These trousers are from Hosberg—they are just the most fun item in my wardrobe and make me so happy every time I wear them!"
"Sometimes with all the dark colours we tend to wear at this time of year, it's nice to freshen up your look with some cream and white. The jumper is so cosy and is part of my friend Caro Daur's collection with Hugo Boss and the jeans are my all-time favourite Levi's style 501 straight crop."
"I live in oversize sweatshirts. This one from Stussy is so soft and fleecy on the inside, and if I'm leaving the house, I like pairing it with vinyl trousers, which are also an autumn wardrobe staple of mine, as they are just a step up from leather. These ones from Rag & Bone are surprisingly comfortable and stretchy."
"Charlotte Simone does the absolute best coats in the business. They are so soft, unique and beautiful and make any outfit feel special. I throw mine over anything from a tracksuit to leopard-print jeans."
"I love statement trainers, and when you're wearing a lot of jeans/trousers and coats, it's a great way to add some interest to your look. I like to style these Yeezys with vinyl trousers and then keep it casual up top."
"A lot of people dread tights season, but I love them as long as they are sheer—opaque tights are a no-no for me. I love wearing tights with a mini skirt, big chunky boots (these ones are Vagabond—a great replacement for the crazy expensive Prada ones we all want) and then wearing this look with a leather blazer from Arket, which is such a versatile piece for me. I wear it with an outfit like this or more casually with my '90s jeans and trainers."
"I'm really into wearing tailored, wide-leg, quite smart-looking trousers with trainers (obsessed with my Nike Jordans), a simple tee and my leather blazer. I swap the tee for a sweater on a colder day, but just love wearing this outfit as it feels easy-going yet chic and is so comfortable. Comfort is key for me!"
"Just like my grey one, a black long-line dropped shoulder coat is another autumn winter staple in my wardrobe. I often wear it on top of jeans and a hoody and it adds a slightly more put-together element to my outfit."
