Our Head of Fashion’s Picks Of The Month

From high street accessories to lust-worthy new collections, SL’s Head of Fashion Lu Hough runs you through this month’s must-have, must-know and must-see fashion…

The Party Blazer

I love a simple black blazer, but sometimes you just need a bit of sparkle. This gunmetal design is subtler than this season’s omnipresent sequined versions.

Ace Blazer, Anine Bing | €319

The Occassion Boots

The perfect heel height, a modern shape and some snazzy prints all in one shoe; these will add interest to the most monochrome winter wardrobes.

Topshop | £85

The Party Heroes

These affordable Zara pieces are so fun and give me real Isabel Marant vibes.

Zara | £39.99
Zara | £29.99

The Fashion-Forward Knit

Knits and frills combined – what’s not to love?

Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini | £275

The Cool Cover Up

I’m a denim shirt purist, but this is a cooler and more contemporary update.

Leather Shirt, £240 | ​Maje

The Smarter Trouser

Head-to-toe cream is such a polished way to do winter dressing; these trousers are perfect with a matching chunky knit, but the accompanying blazer too.

& Other Stories | £89

The Sequin Dress

I blame Strictly for indulging my inner 1920s showgirl, and while the price point may make this totally out of reach, it really ticks all the boxes. 

Naeem Khan | £5,830

The Forever Jacket

I’ve had my eye on an Acne Aviator for far too long, but this AllSaints version is more realistic budget-wise.

Hawley Aviator, £898 | AllSaints

The Velvet Dungarees

This is my kind of festive dressing – the perfect hybrid between casual and partywear, I’ll be layering these over a white tee for contrast.

Sandro | £189

The Ultimate Layer

Not quite a shirt, not quite a jacket, this is pretty much the perfect layering piece during this awkward in-between weather.

ba&sh | £445

The Practical Boots

Comfy, cool and leg-lengthening, these are the winter alternative to trainers I’m currently coveting.

Moncler | £550
