Winter warmers

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!

Women with big boobs will know just how frustrating it can be to find a good coat that doesn’t pull across the chest. Many of you will have had to go up a size (or two) just for a coat to fit around your boobs, but this no longer has to be the case! Bravissimo makes its coats as well as the rest of our clothing in normal high street sizes plus three extra sizes to take into account different bra cup sizes. So if you are a size 12 but your boobs are more like a size 16 then you might go for a Bravissimo size 12 really curvy, that way you get a good fit around your back and shoulders and plenty of room for your boobs too!

We also like to provide as much choice when it comes to style too. Our Cotton Mac is perfect for the in between season weather we’re having as it’s light enough to carry when the sun comes out but will keep you nice and cosy when the nights get cooler. It’s also a classic design that will last season after season and its neutral colour means it will go with most things and suit most skin tones. Attention! Our military coat will have you looking smart and styled all season long. The waist detailing creates a flattering silhouette whilst the slight puffball sleeve adds a feminine touch; it’s also a great shape to wear with skirts and dresses thanks to its flared hem, just add your favourite winter boots and you’re good to go! For ultimate chic however we just love this double breasted jacket, the charcoal fabric with black trim screams Parisienne chic but the button detailing gives this jacket an almost military edge, this jacket is so sophisticated and no gaping button holes in sight! Hurray!
