32 THE QUINTESSENTIAL: DIAMOND STUDS
Simple and elegant, they are the jewellery equivalent of the LBD – with Asian brands leading the way.
34 THE INVESTMENT: THE GOWN
Why? Because Pre-Fall is the season when designers present their best, from glamorous to timeless options.
36 JUST ADD THIS: PANTYHOSE
Sheer, opaque or patterned, they offer a stylish leg-up.

Cuboid with a top handle, the medium-sized bag is ’40s ladies cosmetics case meets ’50s kid’s lunch box.
40 ROCK STAR BOOTS
They come with chunky heels, are shin-high, and have flashy finishes (metallic, patent, coloured croco).
41 POWER SYMBOL
Vintage monograms are back, giving bags a retro feel.
