Donna Air’s autumn picks!

Autumn’s well and truly here, so this week’s picks from our contributing style editor are warm and wonderfully chic


Obsession is certainly the word when it comes to American designer Ulla Johnson. I love the autumn/winter collection. Feminine, flirty and versatile, it’s wearable and at a great price point. I’m already coveting this apron maxidress from pre-spring 2017. Find a selection of the current season’s collection at




There’s nothing more annoying than having to scrub away at your eye make-up. This new cleansing product from Hylamide is super quick to use and you don’t wake up with smudged eyes. Panda circles be gone!


Hylamide High-Efficiency Face Cleaner, £19,


FASHION QUEST: A cosy jumper

donna-jumperThe balloon sleeves on this jumper from Warehouse lift it from a staple winter warmer to something a little more stylish, and it looks a lot more expensive than it is. Definitely in my basket, along with a few other items from the store.

These tweed Mary Janes look very Chanel, would team well with tailored trousers and give jeans an instant upgrade. Wear with bare feet while the weather holds and then with opaques and a miniskirt for a chic winter look.

Kingdon flat ballerina shoes, £99, KG Kurt Geiger,


HOME MUST-HAVE: Love linen tablecloth

Whether you’re throwing a family dinner or meal for two, this tablecloth would look lovely strewn with coloured glassware and yummy food. Available with different hand-painted words, you can choose your cloth to suit your event.

I recommend getting up on a chair or stepladder to photograph the full effect.

Love linen tablecloth in claret red, £375, Summerill & Bishop,


INSTAGRAM OF THE WEEK: My daughter’s birthday

The last weekend of London Fashion Week falls on my daughter’s birthday so it’s always an action-packed couple of days.


This year was particularly special because she turned 13 and we had a fun-filled Mexican party with piñatas. Then it was on to the shows. Highlights included Mulberry and Charlotte Olympia, who had chorus girls dancing with inflatable bananas!
