Digital creator Ali Byrne shares the wardrobe staples she can’t live without, plus the metallic pieces she’s coveting for festive dressing …
A new season, particularly autumn winter, feels like a turning of the page. The kids go back to school, the leaves change colour, the weather becomes cosy: it’s a moment that cries out for a sartorial change in gear. And while it can be tempting to overhaul your wardrobe with a glut of new pieces, we’re more conscious of consumption than ever. Is it unrealistic to think we won’t buy anything new? Probably. In the spirit of balance, we’ve created a glossy new series 2+2; where style influencers share the pieces they’re investing in for autumn winter and the forever stalwarts they’ll be carrying over from previous seasons. Up this week, Ali Byrne (Instagram @ali123_) talks about her love of leather jackets and do-it-all flats, as well as the metallic pieces she’s coveting for her festive wardrobe.

what i’m buying …
“One look I have been loving lately is the metallic trousers trend. It’s great because it can be styled different ways, something that’s important as we come into the festive season.”

“A statement knit is always on my list. A piece I have my eye on this season is this one by the brand Mundaka which I stumbled across on Revolve.”
