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.
