All We Want For Christmas: The Gift Guide

Friday, November 1, 2019

Picture the scene: Christmas morning, opening your presents and you receive another bath bomb set. Sigh. While baths all year round are a treat, we’ve pulled together the definitive list of everything a fashionista needs this Christmas to avoid disappointment-face syndrome (it’s a real thing, trust us). Pick your faves and craft Father Christmas a very detailed Christmas present list…

Shoes

Christmas without a new pair of shoes is like Christmas without chocolate, so add these to your Christmas list. Knee high boots are still big news and will carry you through to spring – invest now and thank us later. You’ll also be needing some party shoes for your New Year’s Eve plans; we recommend a strappy heel or a court shoe. Whether you’re into cute boots, dancing shoes or sporty trainers, make sure your feet get a treat.

Accessories

The official plus-one for all your outfits, it’s vital you top up your accessories wardrobe this Christmas. Finish your look with our wide range of sparkly hair slides and statement earrings, we’re loving a headband or two as well. Bags are essential to your outfit (and life), and a beaded bag will see you past party season and into January. For daytime accessorising, make sure you’ve got a cosy beanie or baker boy hat (great for hiding post-party hair). And it wouldn’t be Christmas without a brand new snuggly scarf… 

Knitwear

If you don’t want to end up in the same novelty knit as your nan, act fast and get these cosy jumpers and cardis on your list. Snuggle up in slogan and printed jumpers to wear with jeans or faux leather leggings on Christmas Day. We’re obsessed with the chunky knit dress to stay toasty this festive season *adds to wishlist*. Invest in cuddly cardigans to layer up on the colder days; perfect for those afternoons by the fire.

Partywear

It may seem a little too late to ask for Partywear, but believe us, the best nights of the year happen between Christmas and New Year. Once you’ve exhausted all your other party outfits in the run-up to 25 December, look forward to getting something new (and preferably sequinned and shiny) for the remainder of the party calendar. We recommend the Ombre Jumpsuit or Silver Suit for some NYE sparkle or anything mini and velvet for those festive fandangos!

Coats

A winter wardrobe staple, a new coat should be top of every Christmas list and this season we’ve been spoilt with choice! Whether you’re an aviator coat kinda girl, or teddy trucker jacket gal, we’ve (literally) got you covered.  Pair faux fur jackets with denim and boots and save chic overcoats to keep you warm when you’re going out-out.

Stocking Fillers

The finishing touch, (and maybe the best part) stocking fillers are all the little bits and pieces you forgot you needed or wanted. These are perfect for Secret Santa presents too! Add the pièce de résistance to your wardrobe with cute hair slides, chic headbands, cool jewellery and of course, false eyelashes. And for those post-lunch winter walks, don’t forgot to add cosy headbands to your wish-list. Sorry Santa, a selection box just won’t cut it anymore…
