The October Style Capsule

Autumn is officially upon us, and I am nothing short of ecstatic to pull out all my cold weather paraphernalia. Like all other months of 2020, October has crept up way too soon and has brought that odd cold-but-sometimes-hot weather with it, making it a perfect time for trans-seasonal clothing. This month's style haul is a mix of soft cashmere jumpers, cotton t-shirts, and versatile layering in your classic fall checks, rusts and more neutral colourways.

The edit is curated to give you the perfect combination of back-to-work and desk-to-dusk wardrobe. All items are interchangeable and the colours work really well together, whether you're going for a toned-down neutral vibe, a little monochrome or aiming for a pop of colour, there's something for every mood.

There's also something for every budget! For each pick, there is an equally chic, affordable dupe, which doesn't compromise on material or style.

The Octavia Elizabeth Gabby gold hoop earrings and Cartier Love ring were the first to join this week's roundup. Simple, understated and effortless these accessory staples add a certain je ne sais quoi to every outfit in this capsule. Keeping a warm theme in mind, the Vince cashmere sweater paired with the Michael Kors Collection checkered skirt is an ideal choice for monochrome lovers. The Vince sweater looks equally chic with the toffee dupe for the Michael Kors skirt. Go the extra mile and tie it together with the Jacquemus Le Chiquito bag to add another rusty element. I love a good tailoring moment but instead of a suit, I prefer using separates to allow room for versatility. This & Other Stories Hourglass Blazer adds a decent amount of shape and can be thrown over the Me+Em T-Shirt with ARKET's straight jeans. Alternatively, you can wear it over the Vince sweater and Materiel pleated trousers for a more professional look. Due to the unpredictable weather this time of year, you never know if it's wise to carry a scarf, an umbrella, or a spare t-shirt in your bag which is when a large bag like the Saint Laurent Noe canvas tote is a must-have to accommodate all your extras. All outfits can be paired with either the Gucci Ace trainers or the Bottega Veneta Lido sandals - they're appropriate for a casual stroll around town, or a busy day at the office and both look equally fantastic.

Happy shopping!
