What should I have in my Autumn / winter capsule wardrobe for this season? I do like to keep up to date with the fashions - what key pieces are a must?

Ugg boots
Jeggings

i did not like joan's strides there was a nasty camel toe suggestion.

but she is dead right re fleeces and lipstick.

I would say biker boots and a leather biker jacket should be on your list.
Anything with sequins on and a military jacket would also be in.
Also anything warm so lots of chunky knits.

What did she say about lipstick?

what are the 25 that we should have, then ?
25 doesn't exactly = capsule, does it ?

It depends on what you're using this 25 piece capsule wardrobe for - do you have to wear really smart stuff for work, or can it be a more casual wardrobe?

yes, smart stuff for work, however I tend to have a work wardrobe. So this would be more smart casual.

Hm. It also depends on your age and colouring, body shape. If you are 16 and very skinny, it would be all jeggings, big t-shirts, Balmain shouldered jackets. I would not advice this if you're not 16 and very skinny.
