I know I say it every time, but this autumn drop from Sézane* is unreal. Think luscious cosy knits, tailored wide leg trousers, ‘wear with anything’ ballet pumps and coats so timeless you’ll be grabbing them out from your wardrobe for years to come. Of course there are pop of colour and florals, but for neutral lovers like moi, it’s a pretty heavenly offering. I’ve had some of my Sézane Cardigans* for years at this point and they have lasted so well, with minimal piling and still soft to the touch. That’s why it’s perfect for adding to a capsule wardrobe, because these pieces are built to last; high quality, high finish and every detail thought out. If I really had to narrow it down, I’d say Sézane excel in four areas – coats and jackets, knitwear, leather accessories and elevated basics – think flowy trousers, beautifully cut bodysuits, dresses that are just as good for the office as they are for date night. Here’s my edit for autumn…


COATS & JACKETS

Can I just start by saying that Sézane have produced the most perfectly weighted thick-but-not-too-thick blazer jacket and called it THE RALPH JACKET*?! How divine. I just HAD to have it. For a slightly oversized fit, I’d recommend going one size up if you’re between sizes (it’s what I’m wearing in these photos). If it’s a trench that you’re after then the Scott Trench* looks nicely tailored and comes in a gorgeous camel and a khaki too. For a jacket that just has a really high-end feel about it – try the Paolo Coat*. Super thick and a great caramel tone that looks so good with an all denim outfit. And I really like the look of the Eddy Jacket* too – a bit between a cardigan and a bomber, it looks like one of those jacket you could just throw over any outfit to finish it off.



KNITWEAR

I just think good cardigans are hard to come by, and Sézane do them so, so well. I feel like the Emile Knit* looks good with denim and some ballet flats and being quite heavily ribbed, will make a good layering choice this autumn (I’m wearing it in a M). The Betty Cardigan* is a whole thing on its own, you know? Totally gives that quiet luxury vibe, plus it comes in cream too. I’ve been going on and on about how burgundy will be my colour of the season and this Basile Cardigan* is exactly the kind of tone I’m talking about; great if you want to give a nod to the red trend without wearing bright red. It’s not just limited to cardigans though and the styling of this Freja Dress* has me tempted. A knitted mini dress, with rolled sleeves, a big tote and some ballet flats? SIGN ME UP.




ACCESSORIES

I’ve been wearing my Milo Bag* a tonne recently. It just goes with everything, tucks nicely under my arm and it’s just very practical whilst also being very chic. I love it! In fact Sézane’s bag line-up has had a shake-up and the new styles are LUSH! Check out the Romie Bag* – slouchy, leather tote perfection. It looks roomy too. I’m also loving their Paula Babies* which are a mix of a Mary Jane, ballet flat and slingback all in one. Really nice for when you want to add a touch of elegance to your outfit. If it’s a flat you’re after then can I point you in the direction of the Matilda Ballerinas*? So simple, but so timeless – they’d look great with a wide leg trouser or a slightly cropped denim style.



ELEVATED BASICS

This a hard category to pin down, but you know it when you see it. Case in point this matching set – the Maxence Shirt* and Georgio Trousers*. A slinky two-piece number that can be mixed and matched, but looks like pure luxury when it’s pieced together. Add a loafer and some chunky jewellery and you’re sorted (I wear both in a UK12). Something else I’d put in the category of elevated basics is this Donatela Dress* – a knitted mini that I’m just desperate to wear with some ballet flats, or tights and knee-high boots when it gets colder. Or this – the Eliane Bodysuit*, which is pure elegance and is such a good ‘jeans a nice top‘ top, you know the one. Then finally, the Julie Overalls* – a cord wide-leg dungaree-style one piece. It doesn’t get more elevated than that.

A recipe for One-Bowl Healthy(-ish) Chocolate Caramel Biscuits Bars; a little sweet and salty snack that I always have in my freezer. Thanks for the recipe @itsmarianova ❤️

FOR THE BASE: Add 2 cups of almond flour, with 3 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey with 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil into a bowl and stir. Push the biscuit base down into a 20x20 lined baking tin and put in the freezer to set. 

FOR THE CARAMEL: In the same bowl add 1/2 cup almond butter (or cashew - I prefer it!), 1/4 cup tahini 1/4 cup coconut sugar and 1tbsp melted coconut oil. Stir and then add on top of the biscuit base. Return to the freezer.

FOR THE TOP: Melt as much chocolate as you want. I use 80g dark chocolate and put it into the microwave in 30 second increments to melt. Drizzle over the top of the bars and sprinkle with sea salt. Return to the freeze to set for two hours. 

Remove from the freezer, cut into bars and store in an airtight container in the freezer. Honestly these are one of my FAVOURITE snacks right now! Save this recipe for later and let me know what you think 🙌

I’m filming a vlog today (should be with you tomorrow evening), but I thought I’d slice out this swatching section for you and give you a preview of the new @merit lipsticks (ad - gifted). Seeing as so many of you asked for swatches when I showed them on my stories last week - here you go! The texture is like BUTTER 💄🧈
