Snuggle up in cashmere, mix in neutrals with your stripes and pile on the layers this autumn

I was immediately entranced by the work of Plaxtol artist and printmaker Ruth Dent, who creates bold and expressive abstract prints and paintings inspired by music, literature and performance. Now she has transferred the resulting beautiful images into a covetable limited edition of fabulous silk scarves and my new pride and joy is this stunning piece called L’Hiver (Winter), £140, currently transforming the neckline of my dark winter coat and plain jumpers and cardigans.

The other seasons are of course covered and ladies like me who ‘know’ their colours will naturally gravitate to the shades that work for them, but they are all stunning and I am seriously contemplating hanging mine on the wall when not wearing it. Go to www.ruthdent.com to read more and buy one for your mum, sister or best friend this Christmas – they’ll love you for ever.

Watch out for more on Ruth in future editions.
