January’s Capsule Wardrobe

You don’t have to stretch those January purse strings further just to update your wardrobe for 2016.

We show you how to mix three key wear-with-everything pieces in with your current autumn/winter items to create a whole new capsule collection.

Our Hero Items

Faux Fur Trim Jacket

A black biker jacket is a must in any coat cupboard, but a faux-fur trim makes the stylish Stolen Heart Jacket from George just right to see you through the chilly season and into spring. Faux fur is big news for the new year too, so you get extra fashion points as well as extra warmth!

Pom-Pom Kettle Bag

Adding a cute pom-pom keyring to your look is a cheap-as-chips way to work in a fun seasonal trend – and this one comes with a handbag attached! Ok, so maybe that should be the other way around, but it’s the pom-pom that brings the simple and endlessly wearable black Pom-Pom Kettle Bag bang up to date.

Over The Knee Boots

Over-the-knee boots are surprisingly wearable and can be dressed up or down with ease. They’ll smarten up jeans for daytime and are ideal for evenings out when you want to look glam without freezing your feet off in strappy shoes. A pair in the material of the moment, faux suede, will definitely add a shot of sassy style to any outfit.

Three Ways To Wear

With the Skirt of the Season

The brushed check skirt is everywhere this season, and makes a perfect partner for our essential jacket, bag and boots combo! This look is as good for shopping days as it is for casual nights out. Add a smart black shirt or blouse and you’ve even got an easy outfit for the office!

Super Smart/Casual

A smart/casual look can be tricky to put together, but our hero items make it so easy. Just add a simple tunic/jumper dress and leggings, or a stylish shirt dress and tights, and you’ve got a gorgeous look that’s genuinely effortless.

Out on the Town

Dressing up for the evening is a tough task in winter, when keeping warm is also a consideration. Over-the-knee boots and a cool biker jacket are perfect cold weather cover-ups, keeping you cosy from top to toe without ruining the look of your outfit. Throw them on over sparkly sequins to make a statement, or your favourite little black dress for a classic look with an up-to-date twist.
