The Sweater Vest
No-one can not recognise that there seems to be a thing about a knitted vest. Once only relatable with the older generation as an extra layer to keep the cold out, can now be seen in every high street and runway. Sleek or oversized, patterned or plain...we should all have this layering piece this season.

The Cable Knit
Since I am on the subject of the older generation, are you lucky enough to have a granny who knits or a grandfather who has a wonderful cardigan that he no longer wears? My daughter only last month was raiding my fathers wardrobe!!
Cable knits are back whether as a cardigan or a sloppy oversized jumper to cosy up in.
Thinking of Eddie the Eagle...DON'T!!
Just think of beautiful fair isles and intarsia knits that were last seen in the 80's that are now the MUST HAVE sweaters in your wardrobe. Loving all the colours that are a step beyond the traditional.

This is a trend that we have seen for a while and can relate to the many winter puffer jackets that are available as overcoats or as a layer. But a follow on from the summer, the artisanal style of the quilted jacket and patchwork has crept into winter.
We even have winter quilted handbags.
Suited and Booted
After months of loungewear and tracksuits, we are desperate to squeeze ourselves back into our suits. Even mix it up if you cannot bear the thought of throwing away your tracksuit bottoms...just wear a blazer and put on heels and you have a great look.

Pop of Colour
Well if there is a little bit of neon on an item , it is as if it has secret fairy dust. We just love it!! The trims of bright colour takes a lovely item to the next level.
Or why not go all the way and just wear a lot of one colour as seen on this seasons runways. Are you that daring??

Moving from summer to winter. From William Morris to Liberty, prints are here to stay. I am loving putting two clashing prints together..it may sound too much but just go for it. I promise you that there is never enough chintz.
Yes not since the nineties have we seen double denim, don't be scared.
Just add a camel coat or a sleek blazer to bring it up to date.
Tartans to tweeds seem to always be the flavour of the season. Think lumberjacks and lairds... anything goes!
All the Trimmings
From lace panels to ruffles, pearls and sequins...this trend can finally be let out to party. And gosh we need something to look forward to!!
