Brrrr, it’s getting cold outside! As we rapidly approach winter we’re wondering how long we can put off wearing our winter coats. The light weight jacket and single layer on top is no longer enough to keep off the distinct autumn chill. However knowing that there is still November, December, January, February and March to get through before we can even start to think about spring, we’re putting it off for as long as possible. We have also heard rumours on the grape vine that this winter is going to be a long one and after last winter (which felt never ending) this is not good news! So our only hope of surviving this season is a great wardrobe, plenty of layers and some winter warming pick-me-ups like luscious lingerie, cosy nights in wearing gorgeous lounge wear and the odd glass of red!
We don’t often like to admit it but we will enjoy cosying up in soft knitwear, like our super soft Tie Front Cardigan. This cardigan comes in a go-with-anything natural oatmeal colour which will look just as good with jeans as it will worn over a dress or pair of smart trousers. The elasticated waist adds definition to your curves and the tie front adds a feminine touch to this slightly longer style cardigan. We’re also going to invest in the must have polo neck this winter. The polo neck, whether a light weight jersey style or a heavy weight knit, is great for keeping warm whilst looking chic. In the office swap your light blouse for a smart jersey polo neck and wear with trousers, a skirt or underneath a shift dress to update your working wardrobe without having to change it completely. Polo necks also look great underneath a smart coat. Black, brown and cream/natural tones will add a sophisticated twist to this season’s hottest coat trend, the camel coat and no need for a scarf, not just yet anyway we’ve got to save some layers for later!
