I’m a Minimalist, and These Are the 4 Affordable Looks I’m Wearing for Autumn

Technically, we’re getting two looks for the price of one here from Preston, but there were too many good striped pieces in the George collection to only select one, and this just exemplifies that you can never have too many tees or Breton stripes! “When I really want to add colour to my outfit, my go-to thing to do is add red lipstick. For one reason or another, denim and Breton tops always look great with a splash of red. Maybe it’s because blue and red are complementary shades, or perhaps it’s because it references its French heritage, but either way, it’s so timeless.”

Be it with a T-shirt or a jumper, the stripes-blazer-jeans combo is one of the most trustworthy outfits in any wardrobe. They go together as organically as strawberries and cream. When it came to selecting the colour of her jeans, Preston made an excellent point about denim washes: “For me, darker denim washes feel easier to dress smarter and feel more appropriate for the cooler months whereas a bleach wash is great for sun-kissed skin in summer. A mid-blue wash is my go-to for running errands and casual daytime occasions all throughout the year.”

Preston’s styling tip: “Simply switch out the trainers for boots or loafers to make the outfit feel smarter, or if you wish to elevate it further, add heels and some gold jewellery, et voilà! You’re good to go.”
