To celebrate the start of each new season, we send a fashion expert out onto Regent Street armed with £1000 and tasked with creating the ultimate capsule wardrobe.
For the AW15 Edit, fashion blogger ThankFiFi, opts for autumnal hues, versatile pieces and must-have mini bags. Take a look at her essential buys for the new season to inspire your AW15 wardrobe.
"First up – this beauty of a suede trench from Mango, which in my eyes is a key piece for the new season. A little nod to the 70’s, because we’re not quite done there yet, as well as a seriously warm Autumn layer."
"I opted for a lot of burgundy tones throughout, from the H&M shorts to the Banana Republic top and these Tommy Hilfiger boots… oh the boots. Buckles, suede and super comfy heels. Life just feels easier when I stick to a somewhat cohesive palette and these autumnal colours."
"I do love my sunglasses, a staple for me all year round – the instant makeover. These Tommy Hilfiger guys are rocking the seventies vibe crossed with classic aviator style so they’ll be on point for seasons to come. Timeless."
"Shall we just have a side note about Burberry? When on Regent Street you have to visit, even if all you’re going to do is stand in the middle of the floor and admire the beautiful surroundings. I took home the perfect Military red lipstick and a silk necktie, I am in love.”
"Turns out this Mango denim jumpsuit is so great I wore it home and for about 3 days in a row after that. It’s like no other jumpsuit I’ve ever seen before because it’s pretty thick, like a denim jacket which means it is warm and really easy to wear."
The Mini Bag
"You probably know I’m something of a bag lady so it’s no surprise that I opted for two small cross bodies for Autumn – I have become the master of packing these little guys. A neutral from Reiss, which is never off my body, and this mustard style from Furla covers all bases.
"I always think it makes sense to spend the pennies on the bags because they’re easier to keep and transfer from season to season. Expect to see a lot more of these two."
"That’s my capsule picks covered, with the luxe coat, boots and bags I know that they’ll be working for me right through Winter and for years to come. In short, Regent Street has me sorted, you can find me there next season. Who’s with me?"
