A detachable collar is the perfect piece to layer over simple knits to make them feel feminine, yet cool. I love them layered over sweatshirts for a more relaxed feel, too.
The Sustainable Brand
Dainty, modern and minimal, Leo and Lumi is the new jewellery brand I can't get enough of. Everything is made using 14 carat gold and lab-grown diamonds – which makes the designs not only a more accessible price point for the quality, but also more sustainable. The perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.
Gu_de is a brand I have been covetting for a while – their bags are micro-sized which feels really on trend, but they’re still big enough to fit all your essentials and let’s face it, you don’t need to carry that much around at the moment! Their original 'Love' has been a hero style and the new reversible 'Bonnie' design, which is available to pre-order, will make the perfect Christmas gift.
Loungewear isn’t something you necessarily need to spend lots of money on – case in point is this collection from Zara. It’s full of comfy separates and twin sets to keep you looking stylish at home.
Split hem trousers have been major trend this year, but the ones I’ve tried have tended to be more of a legging material. For Tove’s design, the fabric is more akin to a tailored trouser, so you feel more polished – yet still relaxed.
The Party Piece
Whether or not you’re going out, you can’t go wrong with sequins during the festive season. I’d wear this skirt with a black cashmere roll neck for a chic evening look.
Flattered is a shoe brand to have on your radar. Not only have they got some amazing chunky boots, their flats are worth checking out, too. A particular favourite of mine are their shearling slippers, as they’re the perfect shoe to add character and interest to your outfits when you want to be cosy at home.
Fair Isle knits are the chic way to do a Christmas jumper and I absolutely love this one. The colours are gorgeous and while it’s subtle, it still feels festive. Style it with detachable cuffs and collars to make it feel a bit more fashion forward.
You can always count on Sister Jane for roomy, comfortable dresses that make a subtle statement. With its velvet fabric, exaggerated collar and oversized sleeves, this design will be perfect for just about any occasion – whether it’s dressing up at home or a future evening out.
