The image of the Christmas jumper always conjures up the first Bridget Jones film when Colin Firth famously wore the unstylish sweater gifted to him by his Mum.   So forgive me if I take a breath before recommending you to do the same.

But this year Save the Children have www.christmasjumperday.org on 13 December where you can sign up for just £2 or £1 if at school, and make a difference worldwide for children in need.

If you also want to get really involved in the Christmas spirit with a festive jumper, and want to retain some sort of style, you can still do this without becoming a complete laughing stock.

LOOKING ‘COOL’ WHILST KEEPING WARM – THE ULTIMATE IMAGE MAKER

LOOKING ‘COOL’ WHILST KEEPING WARM – THE ULTIMATE IMAGE MAKER

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

I have been watching so many period dramas and movies recently, and I have been obsessing about the power of the hat.

My grandmother, whose hay day was in the fifties, would go to great lengths to ensure each outfit was perfectly co-ordinated, and her crowning glory would be the most important accessory to complete an outfit.  In fact, she wouldn’t go out without a hat and matching handbag and shoes – especially when visiting the Capital.

I remember trying on a multitude of hats when playing dress-up in her bedroom, and loved every minute.  Milliners were then in abundance and every department store boasted a vibrant hat department.

To endorse my debate, the word Milliner actually came from Milan, which still is the height of fashion, and this is why I am thrilled that hats are making a massive come back.  You can’t beat them as a major styling accessory, and can even create an identity.  But nowadays a Milliner is actually someone who designs and makes a hat, and there are some fabulous styles to choose from.

We have seen it with Meghan Markle who loves wearing a French style beret, and Jenifer Aniston recently was seen donning a Fedora.

If you want a more urban image, there has been a surge in the more masculine tweed ‘peaky blinders’ style beret but worn by women, and for Winter some gorgeous beanies to enhance your ‘cool’ whilst keeping warm.

‘GIVE A GIRL THE RIGHT SHOES, AND SHE CAN CONQUER THE WORLD’ – MARILYN MONROE

This famous quote is one of our favourites, and if you consider how shoes have played such a huge part in fairy tales, movies and novels, it is certainly true.

‘One shoe can change your life’ says Cinderella, and we all know why.  But more modern heroines have experienced the power of shoes.

‘I still have my feet on the ground, I just have better shoes’ Oprah Winfrey

‘Shoes must have very high heels and platforms to put women’s beauty on a pedestal’  Vivienne Westwood

‘How can you live the high life, if you do not wear the high heels’ Sonia Rykiel

So with this in mind, let’s talk shoe shopping this season, here are some of the best buys to suit your style.

For both style and comfort – V by Very Dixie studded mid heel point court shoe £35.00

If you fancy a little bit of ‘Strictly’ this season – Freed Nancy Ballroom and Latin shoe – £62.50

Elegant and sassy – perfect for parties and flaunting the new outfit – but practise at home first as these are killer heels – Moda in Pelle Llari Rose Gold Metallic Lizard effect Leather – £129.95

If you are going for classic and comfort and need a slightly wider fitting,  this is a shoe that will never date, this M and S wide fit stiletto heel platform court shoe is perfect and at only £25.00.

If you want a really ‘cool’ image and are still rocking those DMs, then you will find these stylish boots irresistible – All Saints Dayna Boots – £148.00

Autumn is always my favourite time of the year as I feel we get to wear the colours and fabrics that feel good and suit our personality.

It may seem cliché, but as the leaves turn colour so do my love of autumnal shades, and they can be anything from holy hues to florid flame and it seems anything goes this season.

We see reds and pinks combined, bright yellows with shades of green, tartans are back and kimonos worn over jeans outdoors.

Here are some samples of what is hot on the high street.

Paloma Printed Kimono – Monsoon £80

 

Cord Shirt – pink – River Island £36

 

Oversized Mustard Boucle Coat – V by Very £80

 

Ferne Jersey Midi Dress – Boden £90
