It’s the season of all things cute ‘n’ cosy and this find definitely ticks both boxes! According to the world of fashion, there’s no such thing as owning too many 9-9 knits right now, giving me every excuse to pitch Louche’s Onie as my next day-to-night wardrobe addition. Its versatile navy shade makes it super easy to dress up or down, while its ladder design keeps it lightweight enough to stop me passing out on the tube! By that logic it’s a case of ‘need’ and not ‘want’.
Taking all the ‘what to wear’ stress away from Christmas party invites, I love the metallic shading to Louche Luxe’s Joyous skirt that makes it oh-so right for festive dress codes. Its sophisticated length is perfect for avoiding any raised eyebrows, while the fun print and swishy nature keeps it pretty and playful. You’ll definitely be seeing me on the dancefloor in this.
I like to be a little quirky and different with my style choices and finally I’ve found the perfect winter pick to stand out from the army of black coats out there! The unique folk print to this Alamedia coat by Valley of the Dolls ensures that I’ll grab attention for all the right reasons, while the removable fur collar gives me options to style it different ways. I’ll be wearing mine with a light knit, a fitted skirt and pointed ankle boots.

I don’t care how long it’s been since the final Gossip Girl season wrapped or Clueless was released, I’m still loca, loca, loca for tartan and simply never tire of buying different shapes and shades. What I love about Louche’s Hersela skirt is its Upper East Side pleating and midi length fit that will work perfectly with my favourite pair of boy-meets-girl flats. I’d wear this look day-to-night with a skinny roll neck and a structured hat, but on Christmas day I’d add a festive knit and a cute collared shirt underneath.
Okay, I’ll admit it. I have a (not-so) little brand crush on Native Youth right now and this longline coat is number one on my wish list. I really love the masculine nature to the design that I’d wear with tailored bottoms, a striped shirt and my Stan’s come daytime or a striped sweater dress come evening. Cold weather? Bring it on.
By the laws of fashion, I never really need an excuse to buy another LBD but the Christmas party season always acts as good one. The bandeau neckline to this Lavish Alice pick is something I look for to make my short hair feel a little more feminine, but it will look just as good with a chic up-do a la Audrey Hepburn. My favourite bit? The skinny rope tie gives a small nod to bohemian styling, meaning my inner hippie is pleased, too - even in heels!

Cue ‘I never want to take this off’ thoughts because I love how incredibly soft Louche’s Jan sweater is. Everything about it suits my style to a T – but especially the ribbed hem and cuffs. I love to layer, so I’ll be wearing mine with denim and a statement coat, or throwing it on for days in the office over a girly mini dress with my comfiest flats.
I’ve been non-stop searching for the perfect party dress and I’ve found it with Lavish Alice’s Fringe midi dress that’s glam yet fun all-at-once. Its black shade makes it a style investment that’s wearable season after season, while the heavy fringing is so now and would totally make my entrance a good one. I’d team mine with heels and strut straight onto the dance floor.
I think it’s obvious why I like this T-shirt! I’m always looking to have fun with what I wear and Brat and Suzie’s Jingle Tonic tee combines my love for cocktails and Christmas perfectly. In fact, I may even swap my Christmas jumper for this – it’s worth being a little cold for! I’m planning on styling it the ‘90s way with a tartan mini skirt and tights.

Contemporary street wear label, RVLT are known for their signature pieces and I like that this classic cotton shirt has been given quite a creative twist with its subtle print. The structured collar allows me to easily layer it, too which is so essential for the cold blast over the Christmas period.
The finishing layer to my look, HYMN’s Chaplin coat creates an outfit that I can easily wear to wear to work and feel cosy, cool and relaxed. Also allowing a put-together vibe, it perfectly fits into an evening night out in Dalston with my friends.
I think that HYMN’s sweaters and jumpers are so easy to wear day-to-day and the Beaumaris is an extra effortless choice thanks to its muted grey and black palette. I’ll be wearing mine together with the above picks.
