Monthly MATCHESFASHION Must-Haves


MATCHESFASHION
is our forever go-to for hot-off-the-runway wardrobe heroes.

When it comes to curating a stylish selection of high-end brands, no one does it quite like MATCHESFASHION. From chic outerwear solutions, to lust-worthy bags and statement-making jewellery, MATCHESFASHION always has the most covetable array of fashion pieces to ‘add to basket’. Here’s what’s on CF’s wish list for October.

In partnership with MATCHESFASHION


THE PUFFER COAT

If you are looking to add to your outerwear arsenal, a puffer coat is the trending style of choice. From all-out quilted jackets to pillowy parkas this coat is quickly becoming a cult wardrobe icon, working as well in the city as in the field. We love this cream iteration from Acne Studios. The minimalist silhouette is ultra modern, whilst the cinching belt adds sleek waist definition. It's a worthy investment piece you simply can't get bored of.

THE INFLUENCER-APPROVED LEGGINGS

Forget all preconceptions that stirruped leggings are for horsey types alone – they're trending once again for AW21 and have already been adopted into the influencer uniform of choice. Not only will they provide extra warmth when the temperature drops – paired with chunky knits –  but they have that wonderful trompe l'oeil effect of elonganting limbs for a particularly sleek silhouette. Ganni's retro iteration sit high on the waist and are adorned with buttons for added polish.

THE AUTUMN BAG

With the handbag on hiatus for most of 2020, this year we're lapping up every opportunity to invest in a new piece of arm candy. If your accessories wardrobe is already awash with black or brown, forgo a classic in lieu of Chloé's beautiful patchwork piece. The artfully scalloped panels of earthy-hued leather lend the bag a bohemian 70s energy, synonymous with the brand. Effortlessly worn cross-body, it's the perfectly sized day bag you'll want to wear on repeat.

THE MINI DRESS

We'll never stop extolling the virtues of an LBD, particularly when it's a whimsical silk-satin confection by Valentino. The fine gauze sleeves make for a subtly alluring flash of flesh, whilst the frothy neck-tie adds an elegant point of interest. We're just waiting for the festive party invitations to roll in now….

THE MUST-HAVE KNIT

The cornerstones of every hard-working autumn/winter wardrobe are good coats, boots, and excellent knitwear. When it comes to the knitwear, MATCHESFASHION's in-house label, RAEY has you covered. The label is known for it's elevated basics with timeless appeal, like this khaki sweater. With an oversized silhouette and exaggerated shoulder it's off-duty elegance at its best. By day, pair with your favourite denim; by night, it lends a cool energy to leather trousers.

THE PRINT SKIRT

A midi skirt is an effortless wardrobe hero piece that can see you through all seasons if chosen wisely. This Isabel Marant skirt is crafted from airy paisley-print silk crepe that’s gently gathered at the high-rise waist before draping to an asymmetric hem (for a touch of insouciant glamour). For all out maximalism pair with the corresponding blouse, or dress down with a sleek roll-neck.

THE CHELSEA BOOTS

The power of the perfect Chelsea boot should never be underestimated. It can be worn with everything: from slip dresses to trench coats for instant, effortless polish. These Jil Sander boots are adorned with a chunky chain that echoes the label's directional jewellery collection. Made from glossy patent leather with a rounded toe and a chunky block heel, we can't see ourselves wearing anything else all autumn.

THE PINKY RING

Pinky rings have fully shaken off their stuffy reputation and are now one of the coolest jewellery pieces around. We are looking to Parisian designer, Yvonne Léon for our own investment piece: this malachite, diamond, and yellow-gold ring offers a modern take on tradition.

THE AUTUMN FLORALS

Susie Cave has the Midas touch when it comes to her undeniably romantic and flattering designs for The Vampire's Wife, which could cajole even the most dress-phobic of types into submission. Hyper-feminine and beautifully adorned with frills, we've found the ultimate winter wedding guest dress, which may just upstage the bride…
