The speed of fashion week means it’s about the only time of the year I plan my outfits in advance.

With super long days and late nights, I need to know my looks down to the small finishing touches like rings and lipsticks, to avoid stress in the mornings.

Here’s what made the cut this season…

Blue dress and necklace, H&M
The stiff fabric is great for staying crease-free after long stints on show benches.
Bloomsbury bag, Radley London
A top handle works with ladylike looks and the strap let’s me go hands free for after show parties too.
Mink suede shoes, Office
The colour let’s me do an ankle strap without losing any leg length.


Dress, Oasis
Roll neck top, H&M

I bought this a couple of sizes too big to create a loose silhouette and let the drop waist stand out. Adding a roll neck makes it day, and autumn, appropriate.
Shoes, Schuh
Comfy Italian leather in a sharp, pointed shape brings this flat into tough territory.
Bag, Mulberry
My new baby Bayswater satchel. Timeless.


Dress, H&M
This silk dress has a deep v back to add a surprising twist to the conservative length.
Bag, Kate Spade
A colour block classic.
Shoes, New Look
With hardly a heel to them, these are practical but the gladiator strappy finish feels dressy too.


Dress, Shoes, Mint Velvet
I love the ease of everything Mint Velvet. This dress has beautiful sheer sleeves.
Bag, Baia
Bespoke in grey leather, black croc-finish and a bright blue suede inner.
Earrings, H&M
Upholstery-inspired tassels for a little fun.


Top, Marks and Spencer
The breton gets some bling.
Skirt, Wishbone
Buttery soft leather, I love the length of this.
Bag, Radley London
Shoes, Office
