New Season Classics with Jack Wills

Nothing says back to school like a new crisp white shirt - and even though my educational years are far behind me, I still like to get those "new term" essentials when the air turns crisp. The other day I found my first conker and had the obligatory Pumpkin Spice latte to officially welcome autumn.
The Oxford shirt is a quintessentially British wardrobe staple, perfect for office-wear or off-duty at weekends, tucked into a pair of jeans (or denim a-line mini skirt for a more Jane Birkin look). The possibilities are endless.
And speaking of jeans, I've had a love-hate relationship with skinny jeans for most of my twenties. However, my quest for the perfect fit and colour has come to an end. The Fernham jeans are mid-rise so they sit just above the hip and narrows to the ankle, so very flattering indeed.
The Chelsea Overcoat. AKA, my coat of dreams. Inspired by traditional wool overcoats invented for the boys of the 18th century (because who's style icon isn't Ludvig van Beethoven?), this checked overcoat looks seriously dapper, but can easily be dressed down with a pair of jeans and mary-janes.

Autumn Transitional Staples

As we bid farewell to one of the hottest summers we've ever had, I can't quite wait for autumn and the seasonal trends that go hand in hand with my favourite season.
I'm a big fan of corduroy - trousers, pinafores, jackets, and most of all... the a-line mini skirt. A firm staple in my year-round wardrobe, made even better in a crisp burnt orange corduroy. The zip details adds a nice sixties finish to the classic shape and looks perfect paired with a turtle neck.
Which again is something I enjoy wearing when the air starts to get a little crisp. This navy and orange stripe number is perfect when paired with the skirt and is definitely a dream combination that I'll be wearing a lot this season.
One of the many questions us Brits face this time of year is "when is it finally time to bring out the big coat?" - and I've found the perfect transitional piece to see me through until the time is right. This navy oversized blazer is perfect to throw on over an outfit when there's a nip in the air.
