Even though humidity is still heavy in the air, fall fashion is slowly starting to roll in. And quite frankly, getting us in the mood to do a little layering. For this week's look we are styling some of our favorite autumn arrivals with pieces that can easily transition from summer to pre-fall. Our color story is all about embracing warm hues; deep wines, intense marigold, and rich plums. Elegance gets a flirty update with this lustrous satin 'Rodmell' top from Roland Mouret. Skilfully draped, this one-shoulder design comes with a peplum-like hem and is closed with a gold-tone zipper for added impact. To give our ensemble a bit of a more relaxed vibe, we went for classic, casual denim. The Row's light-blue 'Ashland' jeans offer slight fading and whiskering, and have a straight-leg silhouette. Our outfit's star player is a real show-stopper!

Etro creates robe-style jackets each season that fit perfectly into the well-traveled, bohemian woman's lifestyle.

This particular version is fully reversible with one side cut from lustrous floral and paisley patterned satin jacquard. The black interior has a textured piqué finish. Keeping our footwear on the summery side, Aquazzura has collaborated with one of our favorite Colombian designers, Johanna Ortiz to create a capsule of playful sandals. This particular pair is decorated with lustrous tassels that exude an exotic feel. Incorporating some beautiful jewel-tones, Charlotte Olympia's 'Pandora' clutch comes with a multicoloured abstract cluster fastening and an internal shimmering gold-tone zip pouch. Sealing things off with a swipe of lipstick, Pat McGrath's new MatteTrance is a rich formula with a sensually creamy, powerful pigment that evokes screen siren glamour with every application. The best thing about all of these pieces is they can easily be worn from daytime to evening, from a low-key lunch to a fancy dinner. No matter where you choose to wear this look, you'll have everyone you meet charmed at 'merlot'.
