Investment pieces to take on autumn winter in style

With the chilly season underway, a capsule wardrobe of the perfect autumn and winter investment pieces is not only a easy way to maximise cost per wear (to make the most of splurge items) but also to layer up quickly on chilly mornings. From high-quality fabrics to versatile layers, these are the essentials that will become much-loved staples in your wardrobe.

Capsule classics

Curated with pieces that can be mixed and matched together across seasons. Think perfectly-tailored trousers, striped shirts, wool-blend and trench coats, chunky knits, boots and jeans you never want to take off. An exercise in sustainability, investing in the long-term wardrobe will see you in style across the cooler months.

Seasonal statement pieces

While they might not typically spring to mind when it comes to 'timeless investments', consider what bold shades and prints you've always gravitated to. The right pieces will inject personality but chosen wisely, serve you well time after time.

The final touches

Footwear and handbags are an absolute staple no matter which season. Investing in a few neutral, quality pieces can elevate your wardrobe. Think over-the-knee or knee-high boots, white leather sneakers, fine jewellery and a trusty tote.
