2008 Autumn Winter Trends Chosen by My Wardrobe

Exclusive My-Wardrobe Pick Their Autumn Winter Fashion Buys

In the run up to Autumn we're asking the top beauty and fashion editors, bloggers, buyers, makeup and hair artists, stylists and industry experts to share with us their new season tips.

Today we caught up with buyer Joanne Watkinson to find out what she recommends for the colder months.

First up the all important it-bag. Joanne recommends Anya Hindmarch's Perry, "This season texture is a key feature, and the mix of cord and leather in this bag is a perfect combination." She also loves the D&G Dolce&Gabbana Lily bag in black (£695). "The Lily bag is still a baby, entering into its 2nd season and creating quite a stir, the multi zip fastening being its piece de resistance."

Joanne explains her next pick, "What is Burberry better known for than its trench coats? The leather version from its cool offspring Thomas Burberry needs no introduction or explanation, designed under the watchful eye of Christopher Bailey, using inspiration from both mainline and archive pieces is a must-have."

She has also been impressed by the Ossie Clark revival and picks the navy silk blouse (£250) in particular. "The ruffle blouse combines beautifully the flamboyant charm of Ossie with the luxury of silk into a sophisticated coveted piece, which will never date."

Moving on to the cream pintuck sleeve blouse By Malene Birger. "The cut of the blouse is so elegant, the sleeves are just stunning, it’s very reminiscent of a Chanel Blouse. I’ve already planned my whole outfit around this piece, Vintage black high-waisted calf length panelled skirt, hair in a loose chignon and a string of pearls...Tres chic."

Last but by no means least is the Twenty8Twelve leather biker jacket. "This jacket ticks all the right boxes without even breaking a sweat. It's leather, cropped, has exposed zips, and its comes in 2 colours, black and blood red, I say no more."
