The Edit

Get the look: Nick Campbell sunglasses (similar black sunglasses here), Equipment blue silk shirt, Cheap Monday jeans (with DIY frayed edges), Larsson & Jennings watch, Proenza Schouler fringed satchel and Yvonne Kone pumps

Fashion need not be serious, amiright?! Which is why this week, I’m engaging in a light-hearted style war featuring a few of this seasons coolest handbags with Reem Kanj of Five Five Fabulous and Harvey Nichols. The challenge (if you can call styling super slick handbags a challenge) was to put my own spin on three delicious styles; a tote, satchel and bucket bag.

This Proenza satchel managed to get me on board with fringing, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff. Give me leather tassels all over. Check out the feature over at Harvey Nichols, where you can vote for your favourite looks (it is a style war after all) right here, here and here.

London Ladies

The streets of London are currently filled with a sea of black umbrellas, winter coats and sneaky puddles. So I’ve pulled together a few shots of well-dressed London ladies from a time when the rain wasn’t quite so relentless and it was safe to don lace midis, faux fur and bare ankles…

Mandy & Nicole

Get Mandy’s look: Celine printed dress (budget option available here), white shirt, black pleated midi skirt, Saint Laurent croc-effect bag (budget alternative here) and Givenchy boots
Get Nicole’s look: Ryan Storer ear cuff, oversized red jumper, dark blue skinny jeans and Charlotte Olympia ‘kiss me’ booties
 

Realising you’ve unintentionally colour-coordinated with one of  your close friends is never a bad thing… Especially when it looks this good. Bold red is not always a hue girls go for, and it’s so good to see Mandy and Nicole embracing it with enthusiasm. Of course their killer accessories aren’t too bad either.

Pandora

Get Pandora’s look: Cream turtleneck (more chunky turtlenecks available here and here), cream asymmetrical skirt, faux fur clutch and suede over the knee boots

Stepping out in cream layers (the slightly more wearable alternative to white on white) always looks so refreshingly minimal. There’s something about Pandora’s outfit which is so simple, lightweight and easy. And those suede over the knee boots are so good – the perfect alternative to tights perhaps?
