Beige Creative Director Leanda Walters shares this season’s most unmissable pieces. The fashion buyer and expert stylist gives us the lowdown on her top picks
Give the Gift of Cashmere
This cashmere stole is one of those timeless pieces that you can keep forever. It’s made by Italian label Marina Rinaldi who are renowned for their unparalleled quality. I wish you could touch it through the screen because the texture is absolutely sublime. It’s the perfect gift for someone you love as there’s no pressure to get the size right and it will coordinate beautiful with all kinds of looks. The vibrant magenta colour suits most skin-tones. I just love it styled over a Marina Rinaldi business suit – it instantly adds a touch of femininity and luxury to a work look.
A Versatile Black Dress
When I’m creating perfectly planned capsule wardrobes for my clients I always recommend investing in one stunning black dress every season. A black dress is probably one of the most versatile pieces a woman can have in her wardrobe. In a sheer flock print with coordinating slip, this dress will take you to all kinds of places depending on how it’s styled. Team it with heels for a dinner date or style it with flat leather boots to create a contemporary daytime look.
The Ultimate Layering Piece
The satin camisole is one of my personal favourite fashion secrets and I own satin camisoles in every colour I can find. The reason I adore them so much is because they are the perfect way to bring an outfit together. The satin texture just makes the whole ensemble look a little more decadent and expensive. In classic black and oyster this cami by Italian label Elena Miro is endlessly versatile. Wear it under a business suit to add a feminine twist or team it with a long line edge to edge cardigan to add texture and a little luxury. There’s also a classic black satin camisole by Verpass that’s is an absolute must-have!
The Longline Cardi
I’ve been styling plus-size women for over two decades and I’m often told, that they’re afraid to wear red. I believe that a little pop of colour can look fabulous. It’s all about how you wear it. A longline cardigan will always be flattering because it creates a clean silhouette. This gorgeous button through cardigan with a peter pan collar by Marina Rinaldi is the perfect way to invite a dash of bold red into your capsule wardrobe. It’s soft and fluid and will be comfortable under a coat when it gets colder. Right now I’m wearing it with practically everything. It’s very flattering and you can fold down the collar to create a V neck if you prefer. I particularly love the deep pockets.
