The Christmas season is officially here! How do we know? Because the Coca Cola Christmas advert has aired of course! That means it’s time to get a move on before you know it the city’s lights will be turned on, the tree will be lit and you’re panicking because it’s five days until Christmas and you still have nothing to wear! Get a head start this year, at least with your accessories and you’ll feel born ready for holiday season.
Like most years, all the typical fabrics are being rolled out for the festive season including velvet, fur, feathers, and suede but we also have some more unusual fabrics and styling details that will help you stand out from the sea of red this year! Here are the only Christmas accessories you need in your collection to ensure you’re the center of fashion attention.
The Jewellery Collection
Tory Burch Feather Drop Earring, £165.00
MM6 Maison Margiela Ring, £54.00
Dsquared2 Jewellery Brooch, £189.00
Jewellery shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to the Christmas season. It’s easy to think you don’t need it amongst your hat, scarf, gloves and heavy coat but don’t forget, once you’re indoors, all of those things come off and then what are you left with? An accessory-less outfit that’s what! To be sure you stand out from the crowd, choose accessories that combine metals with other fabrics perfect for the season. Of course, you still want to keep it classy so don’t crowd the look. Pick one or two fabulous pieces and let them demand all the attention.
Federica Moretti Two Tone Crushed Velvet Hat W Brooch, £264.00
Loro Piana Fur Trim Flat Hat Women Fox Furlamb, £872.00
Gap Velvet Baseball Hat Red Delicious, £19.95
We simply can’t get enough of stand out hats for Christmas. Nothing says confidence like a statement hat and we have some of the best for this season. Whether you prefer cold pales, trimmed with fur or a sweet blue number, we’ve got a hat for you! Most of your body heat escapes through your head so it’s important to keep her nice and toasty. Feel like you can’t pull off a hat? Try our silk taffeta turban instead, a great alternative to a standard hat without the bulk.
The Winter Warmers
Hobbs Audrey Stole, £55.00
Ted Baker Faux Fur Trim Leather Gloves, £62.30
Karen Millen Oversized Faux Fur Stole, £74.25
Hairy dead animal carcass? No thank you! But sexy faux fur that looks just as great as the real thing, hell yes! We all need a bit of fur to make us feel truly Christmas ready. Embrace the fiery reds, deep burgundies and the stunning greys and stone colours in this seasons colour palette to build your scarf and glove sets for an on-trend look. Allow your sets to match tonally for an authentic European look or work the London look with an eclectic miss matching style instead.
The Shoe Must-Haves
Dune Carousel Brooch Detail Pointed Toe Mules, £79.00
Lollipops Ayton Derby Women’s Casual Shoes, £108.00
Aquazzura Fluffy Velvet Flats W Fur Detail, £340.00
Just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean you’re confined to wearing clumpy boots with waterproof coating. Don’t get us wrong, there are a time and a place for practicality but when you’re heading out with your girlfriends for catch up drinks or planning your outfit for the big day, there’s no need to dress like there is four feet of snow on the ground. Mules and sling backs are still having a serious moment after their explosion in Spring and so long as you can bare the cold or are spending most of the day indoors, we say go for it! Try some jewel-encrusted mules, metallic pewter peeper heels or pom pom beauties to get into the festive spirit.
Moncler Grenoble Fur Ski Hat, £940.00
Smith Iox Red Ski Goggles, £170.00
Nomination Big I Love Skiing Charm, £19.00
Of course, not everyone will be spending Christmas at home. For some, it’s the time for skiing and we have just the stand out essentials you need for two weeks on the slopes! Ski equipment doesn’t have to be boring, you can still be the hottest fashionista around with some of our ski trip accessories!
