Heading into the new week with nothing but the barest of essentials, because who has time to agonise
over clothing combinations at this time of year, right?
For me, it is all about clean loose layers and minimal accessories. This maxi shirt dress by Karen Millen
is one such ideal basic for this time of year, able to be layered up or pared back accordingly when the
mood (or weather) strikes, all the while neatly traversing the on- and off-duty realms.
Coupled with my favourite tuxedo-esque blazer, sneakers and tote it's the type of essential that gets me
through even the most hectic of days (weeks, months...) with ease.
I cannot recommend it enough.

Can one really own too many pairs of Gucci loafers? I personally think not.
A few of the most popular styles have just come back in stock over on Net-a-Porter, in particular the
Jordaans (top left) and the Brixton (on my feet).
I cannot recommend each enough, however if you need a tip as to which one you should kick off your
own collection with, go the Brixton i.e. the most comfortable and versatile shoe ever.
Shop them + a couple of extra essential pairs below. Trust me, they're worth it.

Nothing suits Monday better than top-to-toe black, am I right?
Kicking off the week with a few classics, this slick one-shoulder GIVENCHY jumpsuit from YOOX taking
centre-stage. There are few things better than stumbling across past season pieces that you thought you'd
completely missed, only perhaps to also discover them at a generously discounted price. This jumpsuit
was one such find for me, reigniting my appreciation for sites like YOOX where you can nab such
high-end designer pieces and often for a fraction of the original retail price.
The key for me when shopping these sites? Focus on the classics. There is little point purchasing those
strongly trend-driven pieces from older seasons as their very premise has long passed and they are already
dated. Stick to the staples - like these black and white Margiela boots I'm also eyeing - and really take
advantage of those second-chance savings.
You can shop a few select picks from YOOX below or better yet take a scroll through the full site and
discover something for yourself (+ use the code MODERNLEGACY20 for 20% off your purchase*).
