Every Friday our fashion editors rummage through the overflowing Marie Claire fashion cupboard. Come join us...
Boden ‘Lola’ top, £41.30
We predict you won’t take this off all summer. It’ll work for holidays, the office and weekends. Better still, it’s in the sale at £41.30 instead of £59 as Boden currently has 30 per cent off until midnight. Sold.
Steve Madden sneaker slip-ons, £69
These are high up on our lust-list. Sporty footwear isn’t going away; pool sliders, slip-ons, they are here to stay for AW14. The leopard print adds a touch of fun to this pair.
Hunter waterproof, £125
This bad boy has all your festival needs covered. It’s wipe clean – and waterproof with its clever welded seams. Hunter, you have come up trumps. When festival season is over, it will double up as a perfect cover up for wintery beach walks – just add skinny denim and a pair of Penelope Chilvers chelsea boots and you’re good to go.
ASOS jumper, £40, available from July
ASOS is all over the knit trend we are seeing coming through for this winter. It’s not just about slouchy sweater dressing, we are feeling the knits movement head-to-toe and this top is an easy way to incorporate it into your AW wardrobe. The peplum dresses up an other wise casual piece. Team with a knitted pencil skirt for the whole shebang.
Louis Vuitton Pochette Louise, £1,070
Louis Vuitton has the pretty pastel market covered this summer. This beauty was winking at me from the Marie Claire fashion cupboard shelves. Hello, the ‘Pochette Louise’, we need you! But at £1,070 we may have to wait. If this is in your budget, it’s available now. Louis Vuitton’s Epi leather is super durable and known to last the test of time, so is a great investment.
