If you're going to wear anything this month, make it at least one of the below...
Finally, the fashion update we've been waiting for. This season, the biggest trends are both so wearable and practical, they’ll boost both your wardrobe and your #mood. Wear them all at once for major style cred and serious comfort.
From waterproof boots to duvet-style coats and hands-free belt bags, January can already be grim enough, so we're championing being kind to ourselves, especially sartorially.
We've sung their praise before, but owning a pair of the chunky, water-resistant lace-up boots really is a game-changer. Once reserved for walking holidays and extreme weather conditions, they are striding ahead of the Chelsea boot to become this winter’s most-coveted footwear. Especially love them with floral midi dresses and knits.
Boilersuits have become our unexpected wardrobe hero of the year and we're pegging their appeal to the fact they require minimal thinking but deliver maximum impact. Essentially an outfit-in-one, they're as cool with a polo neck and trainers, as they are with heels and statement earrings.
Much like the hiking boot, the fashion set has given this staple their stamp of approval and padded coats have graduated from last year’s micro trend to an everywhere item. If you can't get past their utilitarian feel, opt for one in a plush velvet or corduroy instead.
To the sceptics out there, please be open-minded on this one and know, there is no comfort like being lighter and hands-free. Down-sizing and only packing the essentials is so very freeing and once you try a bum bag, it might well be the only bag you'll be wearing for the foreseeable.
