Get ahead of the fashion wheel - start planning your A/W wardrobe now

In association with Isabella's Wardrobe, Glasgow

I know, I know, summer's still in full bloom, but if there's one thing that defines the fashion world, it's that it never stands still. Chasing the latest look can be fun and exciting but it can also leave you feeling that you're running at an exhausting pace, just to stand still! How many times have you bought into a trend, only to realise that it didn't actually suit you? There's nothing sartorially sadder than forlorn fashion items, hanging unworn in the wardrobe with the tags on!

One way to avoid that, is to seek out pre-loved, classic, quality pieces that don't date. And to buy them ahead of the coming season. That way, you know you're buying something because you love it, not because it's "on trend". This will help you define your own personal style - and your pocket book will thank you for it. Remember: when justifying a purchase, it's all about the £££s / wear! With that in mind, I want to share 2 essentials that will see you through from the waning days of summer to autumn's cooler grasp. Read on!

The Arm Candy

First up, this gorgeous Gucci shoulder bag. Combining 2 of my favourite things - Gucci and a pop of pink - it's large enough to carry all your daily essentials and the water-resistant finish makes it durable for everyday use, especially when the weather turns nasty. The classic 'Double G' print creates an unmistakable yet subtle style statement which, when combined with the unexpected pink leather trim, is beautifully individual. Here, I've styled it with dark chocolate brown and bubblegum pink in a delicious fusion, but it's neutral enough to go with almost anything in your wardrobe.

The Leather Jacket

Always a classic, a high quality leather jacket will last a lifetime and, like a good wine, it will only get better with age. This bitter-chocolate leather jacket by Joseph is a keeper indeed! Its smart, suit-style cut is perfect for workwear or weekending in style. The rich, butter-soft leather screams quality and elegance and feels utterly exquisite to the touch. Paired with jeans and a crisp white t-shirt on the weekend or a smart, sharp pencil skirt and heels at the office, it will see you though a lifetime of events and form the starting point when faced with that perennial question: what will I wear?
