Thanks to its associations with warm mulled wine, burgundy feels like the perfect hue for this time of year. Throw in a big helping of grey and you have a colour combo that is quickly becoming a fashionista’s favourite.

Following all the Christmas festivities, January has arrived, and no matter how hard I try to fight it, it is undoubtedly the most depressing month of the year.

3.1 Phillip Lim Soleil-Print Fold-Pleat Skirt
Today featuring something for a chillier day….
Flowing coats are one of my favourite outerwear in-between the seasons. This JAEGER reversible herringbone wool coat has certainly got the air of casual insouciance and it weighs so little, it can be tossed over the shoulders like a shawl – I love its astonishing versatility and flattering fit.
Cloud-soft and lightweight, the double-faced grey wool coat is perfect for making an easy transition into a warmer season. Designed to a wrap-around silhouette with a waist-cinching belt, this chic piece is reversible – giving you two tones of grey- cloudy and slightly darker herringbone – to choose from.
I wore it with one of my favourite 3.1 Phillip Lim duo: Wool blend mini-skirt and chic grey jumper.
I love the structured look of this lilac white nylon shell skirt with contrasting flocked wool pattern throughout.
Fluffy lilac grid adds texture and gives the boxy-cut skirt a contemporary spin.
3.1 Phillip Lim Cash Only Terry Sweater is a cool statement piece for a laid-back style…
Slim-fitted heathered grey cotton sweater with ribbed round neck, cuffs and hemline, dropped shoulder seams and black raised ”CASH ONLY” textured lettering is a fun way to go about!
I accesorised with Jil Sander‘s sleek and sophisticated and roomy luxe appeal tote. This grape leather tote has been crafted in Italy with a green leather-lined interior and detachable shoulder strap, equipped with multiple pockets to keep your essentials in check, double top handles and protective feet. Complete with stamped branding and a top zip, your workwear looks will be given an instant lift.
This tote certainly offers an immaculate finish for all four seasons.
The final touches are JAEGER patent grey leather heels with a cute burgundy ribbon and pink sunglasses.

A few weeks back I headed off to Rochester for a wonder as it was one of these first beautiful sunny weekends following a pretty grim winter… and the smell of Spring was in the air…
Perfect picture set!
I love the marled wool body with black croc – embossed leather sleeves and notched lapel-effect collar.
How intoxicating are these shades of violet, tomato-red and grape! It is the ultimate statement making jumper for fuss-free, fashion-forward style.
I love the curved hem and supple, very soft leather!
Alexander Wang takes the ankle bootie through Spring with this stretch mesh “Daga” style that lets your foot breathe! I fell love with its unusual stretch mesh upper fabric and the flattering almond toe!
Skin-baring mesh adds sporty appeal to a leather-trimmed ankle boot with a sky-high, commanding heel.
I absolutely adore this MARY KATRANTZOU Marinela navy jewel print tote.
This structured leather tote mixes practicality with a quirky sense of humour – the smooth streamlined and sophisticated shape is decorated with the playful and vibrant coloured tikiman (what Mary calls “little pagan robots made up of symbols.”) set against an navy hued background, and features magnetic polished hardware fastening for easy access.
I love the way the gold bar lines up with the straps!
Finally, I accesorised with my favourite Fendi purple sunglasses! I love the geometric plastic frames and purple lenses, so retro!

When it comes to fashion, I always get excited with bursts of bright colours. Perhaps, this is why I love this outfit; bold, funky and it makes me smile!
I like its loose fit, detachable collar, buttoned flap pockets and zipped back vent.
The fluorescent peach and yellow juxtaposed against black ribbed trims create an almost intoxicating pattern that you just can’t stop looking at. It is without a doubt, one of my favourite jumpers.
Create a vibrant, off-duty look and team it with leather pants and soaring heels.
Black leather pants always go extraordinarily well with bright tops so I went with these Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam.
To finish the outfit off, I opted for these Just Cavalli burgundy pony skin leather ankle boots I picked up on Yoox. Why not try burgundy orange and yellow in one?
