Roo's Top Picks Autumn 17
To continue with our team styling series, Roo, head buyer and Roo's Beach founder shares with us the favourite pieces she is wearing this season, from Bellerose, Custommade and Penelope Chilvers and more. Over to you Roo...
"My wardrobe staple is always jeans, the new Levi’s Mile High skinnys are a dream, they’re so high wasted that they hold everything in and they have the correct amount of stretch that they’re ridiculously comfortable, not like the days of having to lie on the floor in order to do the zip up!
Wildfox is one of my favourite brands and every year I add a new piece of knitwear to my collection, the Mirage Rainbow jumper is a beauty, it’s a fine knit, slightly cropped without being too short, bright and beautiful, easy to wear and just makes you smile. I’ve teamed it with jeans - a no brainer, I’d also wear it with a denim mini skirt and I love it with this gold, glittery mid length skirt from Bellerose, it gives it a slight vintage, eclectic look.
The black silk... cami from Custommade is one of their staple styles which is always in the collection, I have it in three colours, it’s 100% silk and a perfect shape for layering or to wear alone, either dress it down with jeans or dress it up with a gold skirt, lots of jewellery and plenty of lipstick! It’s cut so cleverly that although it has a high neck it also has a low plunge so it’s provocatively sexy without being too in your face!
Now I need to talk about the Epok coat from Bellerose, they just do the best coats every season, I have several and love them all, they are timeless, classic pieces but all have a quirky individuality which makes them so special. This one is no exception, I just LOVE a fur coat, the colour is soft and warm, there is a beautiful bottle green satin lining, a deep green fur contrasting collar, generous pockets and asymmetrical side slits making it just that little bit more special. I plan to live in this coat all winter, I’ll wear it to walk the dogs on the beach, to London for buying trips and out to the pub in the evenings.
Finally Penelope Chilvers has once again surpassed herself with the Goldie Cylon Silver trainers, a simple concept and classic shape, silver leather with such stunning attention to detail, the embroidery is beautiful and ties together all the different colours from my wardrobe, I can wear these with all black or clash them with a host of multi colours and they just work with absolutely everything. Nowadays I wear nothing other than trainers so they are a perfect addition to my shoe collection!"
