Rouge Awakening

Inject energy into your festive wardrobe with this season’s hottest hue: red. Whether you plump for letterbox tones or deeper crimsons, the key to nailing this standout shade is to opt for strong silhouettes and plenty of attitude. For a more subtle take, opt for a one key piece such as a pair of scarlet trousers or slouchy boots in eye-catching ruby suede.

Pedal To The Metal

Scintillating silvers, glimmering golds and radiant bronzes are here to tempt us, just in time for party season. From high-shine trenches to foil-like trousers and shimmering dresses, metallic hues bring some much-needed sparkle to our wardrobes. If sequins feel too ‘extra’, opt for a mirrored shoulder bag – like Coach’s lustrous silver Tabby 20 – to instantly dial up your look.

The Soft Touch

It’s time to get tactile thanks to the veritable smorgasbord of shearling, bouclé and fuzz that’s on offer this season. From fluffy bear-like coats and teddy jackets to faux fur bucket hats, if it looks luxe and feels soft-to-the-touch then you’re on the right track. Go all-out with Arket’s long fuzzy pile coat with faux leather detailing or opt for a plush crossbody bag to keep your essentials cosy.

Moody Blooms

This season’s dramatic botanicals have a sumptuous, gothic feel which makes them more intoxicating than their warm-weather counterparts. From decadent maxi dresses to slinky satin shirts and tapestry-style bags, flowers are staying in full bloom despite the plummeting temperatures. Keep the mood suitably dark and pair your florals with brooding leather separates, such as Kurt Geiger’s chunky-soled Chelsea boots.
