I tend to play it safe in the colder months and stick to three main colours - black, grey and white. Call me boring but I don't think you can go wrong with these 3 staple colours. If you mix and match between the three you can create an effortlessly cool look just by throwing a few different layers together. I've picked a range of items from the high street which are on my A/W wishlist. First up is the cream pocket utility shirt from New Look which retails at £17.99. I used to be a little wary of collars but I think the colder months are perfect to whip out a shirt and get layering. The perfect partner is this grey knitted jumper from H&M which is £14.99. I love nothing more than a chunky knit and grey is the perfect colour. Coupled with the collared shirt underneath you have style and warmth at your fingertips.

I spotted this black strappy v-neck cami on the Topshop website and it's such a staple. Yes it's a little plain Jane, but the good thing is that you can throw it on with anything and the polyester material does all the talking. It's dressier than a normal black vest top and paired with a necklace will make a statement. The cami would look great with these black and white geometric print leggings from River Island. At £22 they're such a steal and can jazz up an outfit. They're so versatile despite the bold print but just add something a little different to normal plain black leggings. Patterned leggings and trousers are completely on trend at the moment so if you don't want to dive into the deep end with bright crazy colours, ease yourself in with black and white.

The dress I've chosen is this black lace dress from H&M which is £24.99. It's simple, elegant and classic so it can work in so many ways for the upcoming months. Bold accessories can be worn to brighten it up or you can keep it classic with a silver statement necklace and a pair of killer heels for a special occasion. The lace details is gorgeous and I imagine the cut to be very flattering. Last up is this black contrast collar longline biker coat from New Look which is a little pricier at £49.99. For warmth, style and durability I really don't think the price is unreasonable. I love the longline design paired with the white collar. It's a classic coat perfect for those cold days.

Six pieces that I think are perfect for an A/W wardrobe. Black, grey and white don't have to be boring - paired with the right items they can look gorgeous with minimal effort. What key pieces are in your A/W wardrobe this year?
