Clare's Most Wanted

Reluxe founder and acclaimed stylist, Clare Richardson, selects her favourite buys of the month, and tells you how to style each piece.

We only select and curate items we think you will love for Reluxe, and there are always those super special pieces that I personally instantly fall in love with. Sometimes they are iconic designer finds, other times simply a perfect shirt, or ideal shape of jeans, but each month I will bring you my Reluxe Picks, and tips on how to style them…

"Nothing says 90s quite like a mule..."

They say that the 90s is back, and nothing says 90s quite like a mule. Personally I love them, and none more than this Louis Vuitton classic. These will be perfect with loose fit jeans, a little hint of a tan, and a pedicure – as you can’t hide a thing in these.

Black and Brown Damier Check Kitten Heel Sandals
CHANEL - Pink And Green Cropped Tweed Jacket

 A classic Chanel jacket layered with your favourite denim is a great way to give a casual twist to one of fashion's most iconic pieces. These are absolutely the heroes to pick up preloved, as they only get better with time. 

STELLA MCCARTNEY - Black One Shoulder Dress

You can’t go wrong with a LBD from Stella McCartney, and this one is simple, sexy and sleek. This is one of those dresses that will become your style crutch for every party you don’t know what to wear to, and every event where the dress code is unclear. Just slip on your highest heels, and you’re good to go.

CHANEL - Baby Blue And White Tweed Mini Skirt

This skirt is one of those moments where I have to remember that I can’t buy all the stock myself. I LOVE THIS. Classic Chanel - a little bit lady, a little bit twee, but a whole lot I MUST HAVE IT! All it needs is a simple white tee, maybe a denim jacket, some simple slides for day, and perhaps a sling back heel for night. Perfection.

"Everyone needs a Mary Poppins bag in their life."

One that can fit in more than you ever imagine, but while still looking pristine. The Phantom is the essential Mary Poppins tote. Chic, big, but never overwhelming, and works as well as a day bag, as it does for a weekend escape.

LOUIS VUITTON - Tortoise Shell Squared Frame Sunglasses

Statement sunnies dominated the FW22 runways, so here is your chance to get ahead of the seasons and buy into that trend now. But thankfully these by Louis Vuitton are big, but also classic, and the gentle curves mean that they suit almost all face shapes, including the daintiest of features.

CELINE - Burgundy Patent Leather Loafer Pumps

There is something quite Schoolmarm about these that make them extra appealing to me. Naughty but nice, if you see what I mean. Great with black opaque tights and a black mini skirt, but equally excellent with baggy denim that puddles over the top, and an oversized shirt.

SAINT LAURENT - Silver Sequin Embellished Mini Dress

Wherever this dress is going, I want to go too. I feel like the Saint Laurent girl knows how to party, and I think I might have forgotten. This dress needs no help from me, but personally I would say try it with flats rather than a heel, as im sure the shoes will be kicked off for dancing anyhow.

"I love a light wash denim"

Stella McCartney loves a little sartorial throwback as much as I do, which is summed up in these retro inspired jeans. I love a light wash denim, as I think they look fresh against white and black, and they always feel like the right choice for summer.
