Current Fashion Staples

The past few weeks have been so cold here in the UK, it’s difficult not to want to stay in bed all day! ¬†When I do have to brave the cold, my outfits consist of the same fashion staples pretty much day in, day out. ¬†You know what “they” say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” (I don’t know why, but I say and hear that in a broad New York accent).

Anyway, my top 3 Autumn/Winter fashion staples are:

A good sweater

A decent pair of jeans

A comfortable pair of ankle boots

Let’s face it, ankle boots are pretty much fashion staples for at least 10 months out of the year over here; and sweaters, hmm, maybe 6. ¬†Jeans? Jeans are always a staple!


For an everyday look I chose my pink cashmere sweater and my favourite blue jeans (a great wash, the perfect length, and super comfortable!). I think the brown ankle boots complement the blush pink of the sweater.

For my all black look I teamed my boxy mohair sweater with my ripped black skinny jeans, and added a bit more edge with my Givenchy studded boots.

For a more classic look I teamed a simple ribbed polo neck sweater with a pair of simple blue jeans, and a pair of classic black ankle boots.

If I want to go for a statement piece, I try to keep everything else quite simple.  For this look I went for my snake print ankle boots, so I kept the sweater and jeans minimal, and let the boots do the talking.

Not all looks using these 3 fashion staples have to be cozy, you can do a little sassy look using them.  For sass, I opted for an off the shoulder sweater, cropped flare jeans, and a pair of block heeled ankle boots.
