Happy feet


If you can’t don a pair of utterly brilliant shoes come party season, then what’s life for? Don’t take fashion too seriously – let your shoes be a conversation-starter. These feather-adorned sandals are block-heeled, which is fantastic news for dance-floor fanatics. Now you can shimmy the night away comfortably (you’re very welcome).




Second skin




Like skinny jeans, leather-look leggings are an established wardrobe staple come winter. Effortlessly versatile, they add instant edge to an after-dark outfit, yet look equally at home teamed with snuggly oversized knits and trainers. Invest in a textured pair this season – you won’t want to take them off.


Shine on


Glitter, sparkle and sequins come into their own for party season, and everyone can jump on board. In need of a little pick-me-up? Let sequins be the answer. Whatever your age, you can rock them, whether with a shimmering party-ready top, a figure-hugging sequined dress or a sparkling jumpsuit. Be bold: embrace the trend and shine bright.


Gold rush



Is it time to start dropping hints to Mr Claus? Most definitely! And gifts don’t get much better than this bedazzling Michael Kors watch. An oversized gold timepiece is a savvy style investment that you’ll want to wear year in, year out. Add a touch of glamour to every day and never be late again.


Snuggle up



Cosy shearling, fantasy faux fur and teddy-bear-style coats are all having a moment, which is brilliant news because not only do they look great, but they’ll also keep us super snug. This coat is particularly striking with its soft pink, cream and brown palette. Consider it the ultimate finishing touch.



Over the top



Looking for a pair of boots that’ll make you feel like a million dollars? Ta-da! The softest black leather, a classic pointed toe and a chic stiletto heel. Wear with a mini and tights, topped with statement knitwear. Or layer them over luxe leggings worn with an oversized shirt and as-big-as-you-dare earrings. Look after these beauties, because you’ll be wearing them for years to come.


Dress it up


With party season just around the corner, there’s no better time to invest in a show-stopping dress. Three-quarter-length sleeves, a nipped-in waist and a flirtatious flippy skirt makes this one ultra-flattering, and the embellished bead detail adds a luxurious edge we adore. Team it with opaque tights and over-the-knee boots or feminine ankle boots for a winning winter look.



Soldier on



Think your footwear collection is complete? Think again. The fashion world has created the midi boot, and we are head over heels. So-called because they finish mid-calf (clever), they look seriously polished paired with midi-length skirts, dresses or skinny jeans. Our pick combines an on-trend and practical block heel with military-inspired stud details.


Frill seeker


Understated sweatshirts have their uses, but come winter, there is undeniable joy in a head-turning trophy knit. Embrace texture, ruffles, cool colour combinations, brights and embroidery for scene-stealing jumpers that need nothing more than a pair of jeans or leather leggings to look on point. They’re instant and practical outfit-makers. We’ll be stocking up...


Bags of style



Choosing the right handbag to see you through the season is important. You’ll be carrying it everywhere, so it needs to be versatile enough to complement any outfit. A bucket bag is a worthy investment. Not only does this one offer enough space for all your essentials (plus snacks, four different lipsticks and that standard pack of baby wipes), but its sleek design competes with designer versions double its price.
