Changing seasons often call for changing routines and wardrobes. While the autumn/winter runway shows had given us an almost overwhelming amount to look forward to, sometimes it just comes down to that one essential item - be it a beauty go-to, new jewel or investment piece.

Below, a guide to the hand-picked pieces that Vogue Scandinavia's editors are cherishing this season.

Blue Luciano Ankle Boots

The Cuban heels, contrast suede and tapered toes of these boots have my heart. I'm relying on the pop of colour to counter autumn's gloomier days.


Allyson Shiffman, print editor


Skin Food

"If you aren't already using Skin Food to combat the fall weather itchies, you're wasting your time"


Robert Rydberg, senior fashion editor


Tailored wool-blend twill overcoat

This fall I am investing in a large, oversized coat in any colour but black.

Gold 'The Infinite Offering' Necklace

I love gold jewellery and as I’m the ‘more is more’ sort when it comes to necklaces, I’ll always wear a multitude of chains – whether that’s accompanying a sundress in the warmer months or layered over an oversized shirt and jumper in the winter. And at the moment, this pendant necklace, 'The Infinite Offering', from British brand Alighieri is firmly on my winter wishlist.

Polo Ralph Lauren

Embroided Logo Baseball Cap

I'm many things, but not waterproof. I can withstand heat, hail and storm, but when it comes to water, I break down. Specifically, my hair. It poofs out, semi-curls up and ends up as overall frizz. Something I keep with me all the time during rainy season is a cap. I'm not the best at keeping track of umbrellas or raincoats, but a cap? Always in my bag, and as long as it protects my hair from the rain, I'll make it work with my outfit.

Drunk Elephant

Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops

These Drunk Elephant drops ensure my friends and family stop asking me if I am sick. A great purchase.

& Other Stories

Smooth Leather Tote Bag

As a dedicated Scandinavian, most of my wardrobe relies on seasonless staples in muted shades. As such, a funky purse is how I zhuzh up most ensembles. Think a Klein blue pouch pinched securely under my arm or a tiny silver clutch I have no qualms about wearing on the daily – an endless parade of small handbags I hold dearly. With that said, I have my eye on a new, more demure staple this Autumn. This slouchy shoulder bag from & Other Stories has the potential to make me a handbag monogamist.

Penelope Bag Palissander

Brown leather, and pleather, really piqued my interest during last season's runways. I have never thought of myself as someone that suits brown, and maybe there is a reason for that - I simply don’t. But this leather bag from Wandler definitely inspired me to try the colour out. Fall fashion is all about warm hues and classic silhouettes so this bag surely fits right in.
