Still feeling the pinch from Christmas but in definite need of a style boost to chase away the January blues? Fortunately, we have some great new fashion statements for this season that won’t break the bank. Give your wardrobe a winter makeover by combining your favourite essentials with our key pieces and top trends for January. In our fabulous collection of new arrivals, we’ve got everything you need to start the year in style!
On our Essentials Edit site, we present the hottest looks for the season – and give you our experts’ top tips on how to wear them. You’ll find everything you need to combine cornerstone pieces like a statement coat or motorcycle jacket, with on-trend details like stripes, denim or military styling to create endless combinations that reflect your own unique look.
To help kick off your style inspiration, let’s take a look at the classic blazer. With its clean, tailored lines and endless versatility, there’s a reason it’s a timeless staple. What else could take you from the office to a night out on the town this smartly? There are so many ways to wear it!
For example, take this chic little jacket from V by Very. At first glance, it’s a proper tailored blazer, perfect to team up with a pair of V by Very’s slim-leg trousers and a classic court shoe from Carvela for a day at work. But look closer – you’ll see that the zip detail at the wrist and stitched lapel give it a rock-n-roll edge. Pair with coated skinny jeans, a cami top and some serious heels, like the Savenni high-back court shoe from Ted Baker in hot pink, to amp up the glam factor!
You’ll also find on our Essentials Edit page some fantastic ideas for dressing up denim – including complete looks for Friday Night Pub, Sunday Stroll, Girls’ Night Out and At The Office. Denim isn’t just for blue jeans anymore – uniquely free-spirited and easy, it’s an absolute all-star in all its forms. Try topping a pencil skirt with a classic Western-style shirt like this one from V by Very for a fresh look; upgrade from jeggings with V by Very’s high-waisted zip detail biker jeans, or show off your pins with a lace-tie miniskirt from South Lace. The possibilities are endless!
