As editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour’s cutting opinion and iconoclastic uniform of chic bob and dark glasses has made her something of a pop cultural legend. Take a leaf out of her magazine by treating yourself to a hint of luxury, played out in an array of designer and high street finds.

Winter embroidery

Anna Wintour

A simple jumper, jeans and boots combination is a go-to for women of all ages as the cooler weather rolls around. Berry tones are suited to work and play and look great with pared-down black trouser. Our chosen jumper is just £26 from Warehouse whilst the leather boots from La Redoute provide competitive pricing at £104.

However, the real star of the show is Anna’s embroidered coat, the ankle length providing true drama when teamed with her glasses. A similar style is available currently at Topshop, retailing at £79. Size up to allow plenty of room underneath for those autumn laters.

Subtle blush

Ideal for a late Indian summer (here’s hoping), the subtle clash of pink against a more orange-hued Prince of Wales check dress offers a fashion-forward approach to colour. A dupe of Anna’s frock is available for £878 from Matches Fashion, nipping the body in at the waist for a flattering fit.

Pink cardi (£45, House of Fraser) and beads (£22, John Lewis) are popped on to accessorize, while a simple cream mule (£10, New Look) looks great on pale skin tones. And don’t forget those glasses—it doesn’t get much more "fashion" than this pair from Chanel (£262).

Petrol blue

One of the season’s most on-trend colours, petrol blue is wonderful for warming skin tones, especially when paired with chestnut tones in the hair. Anna’s very own Gucci coat isn’t cheap at £1595, but with good care, it will last a lifetime.

Save money on the accessories—Hurley’s offer cosy detachable cuffs for just £20 that can be added to any coat or jumper, and Dorothy Perkins have a huge selection of midi-dresses that are comfortable and stylish.

We love this berry-toned number for just £38. The final touches are all about brightening the look—an off-white clutch (£24.99, Esprit) and nude lipstick (£20, Clarins) will let those colours glow.


Bonfire tones

An easy-to-wear version of colour blocking, orange and red will never go out of style. Copy the look by experimenting with textures—the sheer quality of the New Look blouse (£22.99) makes quite the statement against the rich red of a velvet maxi skirt, just £35 at Marks & Spencer.

As always, a touch of luxury is always welcome. Wintour’s usual Gucci is present in the form of an exquisite silk scarf (£310). If designer isn’t your thing, stick to the high street instead—a camel coat from Topshop (£65) and heels from Dorothy Perkins (£10) nod to the look without breaking the bank.


Tropical inspiration

Just because autumn is here, doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on colour. Greens and yellow are still a great way to bring some cheer to the rainy season.

To bring the look into 2017, keep knits oversized and skirts pencil-shaped—the contrast between the soft mint of this sweater (£10, Primark) and bold pattern of the skirt (£304, Diane Von Furstenberg) is wonderful for a night out or Sunday brunch.

Gold accessories tie the look together. A coin pendant from Max & Chloe (£225) and watch from Beaverbrooks (£860) nod to the yellow of the skirt and will jazz up a multitude of separates this season.
