From bags to shoes, jumpers to coats, LK Bennett has launched a collection we can't get enough of...
It’s never too early to start planning next season’s wardrobe, and high street favourite L.K.Bennett has made it oh-so easy, thanks to a collection of versatile, wearable pieces that will help you make the transition into autumn dressing.
L.K.Bennett is known to be a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge, as her go-to for royal walkabouts and state visits. We’ve lost track of the amount of times she has worn their nude court shoes, kept cosy on winter days in a coat from the much-loved British brand or donned one of their jawdropping gowns.
And the Duchess is a smart shopper. She apparently enjoys an exclusive preview of her favourite labels’ new season collections, including L.K.Bennett, buys the pieces she likes and then keeps them tucked away until the occasion arises to show them off. She’s also not afraid to snap up a clever bargain in the sales that will work from season to season.
From tailored winter coats to stylish leather boots, the L.K.Bennett autumn/winter 2016 collection is jam-packed with effortlessly classic looks to help get Catherine – and us – prepared for the colder months. From the coat that’ll most certainly sell out, to the dress that could easily pass for designer, we’d even go so far as to say that this is the brand’s best collection yet.
Some of the new arrivals have already landed in store and online, but you’ll need to keep an eye out for others when they’re released later in the year. Click through to discover your new season style…
