5 great A/W buys (and they're all under £60)

1. CULOTTES
Wool culottes, £25, Next
The unexpected trouser of the summer is even bigger for winter. Look for luxe fabrics and pair with an oversized polo neck and a pair of fab chunky heels.

2. A POM POM KEYRING

Faux fur pom pom keyring, £19, Jigsaw
So this is a bit specific, I know. But every Fashion Editor has one of these - they're a great entry level into the faux fur craze and you can add to your handbag for a bit of extra 'flair'.

3. A Dicker Boot

Flat buckle boot, £39.50, Marks + Spencer

More importantly, a blue dicker boot. A flat, pointy boot is a wardrobe essential for the season and blue is the colour du jour - don't forget M+S 'Insolia' technology will also make these the comfiest boots you'll ever own.

4. Ripped skinny jeans


'Jade' ripped jeans, £40, Oasis
Tried and tested: these jeans are so comfortable. The would look great with aforementioned dicker boots...

5. A PUFFA



Ultra Light Down Parka, £59.90, Uniqlo
This is no joke, the puffa jacket is back. I would opt for a cropped, sporty style over the full length or longer version. And you really can't beat Uniqlo's for value and warmth. Try with tailored trousers and Adidas Originals.

  3. M&S had some great blue culottes I was considering last time I was in there but couldn't decide if I'd get enough wear out of them being casually dressed most of the time, might have to pop back again :)

  5. That pom pom keyring has really tickled me (pardon the pun!) I think it's a must as a nod to the fur craze this season.

  8. Love your picks Alex.

    Was in H&M earlier and spotted two things that you would look great in;

    http://m.hm.com/gb/product/41472?article=41472-B#mediaType=FASHION_FRONT

    Both look better in the flesh and the jumpsuit is great in navy and grey.

    Anyway, just wanted to share!
