I’m definitely a summer girl: I love nothing more than bold colours in stripey or checked patterns, set against sun kissed skin and dishevelled hair. Now that autumn is here, with it’s shorter, chillier days, soft-hazy light and rusty colours, I’m rediscovering my love for the colder seasons. Heavier textures like chunky knits and leather are my best friends. Try texture layering to elevate the common knit to vogue: Oversized knitted sweaters worn over soft silk dresses, lace or leather skirts. Now is the time for cosying up, drinking hot chocolate in street cafes, watching the world go by, or cocooning at home.
Knee-high leather boots are a modern classic. I love pairing mine with dresses and pencil skirts
I am wearing:
- Black wool piano Dress by Max & Co
- Brown leather boots with gold heel detail by Sergio Rossi
- Beige knitted scarf / poncho with hood by Stefanel
- Pink woven leather handbag by Gharani Strok
- Pink mirrored Ray Ban Aviators borrowed from Mr Romantique
My knits and boots style queens:

‘Effortless chic’ is such an overused term, is sounds like a cliche. If there is one person how does personify effortless chic, it’s Alexa. Pairing a heavy knit sweater with a sequinned pencil skirt and high heels. Genius and tres Parisienne!
