The 9 New-In Pieces I'm Adding to My Wish List This Week

I created What to Buy Now to bring you a concise weekly edit of the items I really love, including pieces from the high street, designer labels, vintage gems you can buy online and even charity-shop treasures. I'm constantly scanning the most stylish online stores, so you can feel safe knowing that you won't miss a thing.

I know that your fashion requirements can vary massively from season to season, whether you're looking for an immaculately tailored staple, an affordable sundress or the perfect pair of shoes. So not only will I cover all of the bases, but as an ardent believer in mindful consumption, I'll also make sure everything I include will look just as fresh in a year's time as it does now.

Of course, I'll also bring you those pieces that simply set your heart racing in a way that only fashion can. This week's highlights include plenty of wardrobe gems, from a vintage Chanel tweed jacket to a statement party dress from Benjamin Fox. Scroll down to shop the buys on my wish list this week. You know what to do.

I love the subtle flash of red on these Kurt Geiger track-sole Chelsea boots.

The '90s leather coat is having a comeback, and this Ambercrombie & Fitch number has the perfect fit.

Is this the world's best vintage blouse? I think so.

Trust Rejina Pyo to create a winter coat in the perfect shade of dusty blue. Wear it with rusty reds and beige shades. 

Chunky boots show no sign of disappearing. Add this Kurt Geiger pair to your fave slim-leg jeans.

A smart loafer is the easiest way to add polish to a look, whether it's jeans or a midi dress. Church's brown leather tassel is the ultimate.

In my experience, there isn't an outfit that gold hoops don't go with.

WWW's Hannah Almassi sent this secondhand beauty to me, but sadly, it's not the right size. Can someone please buy it and send me a photo?

A pair of chunky knee-high boots will carry you through the wettest and coldest of winter days. Trust me.
