With a mix of intricate textures, sporty shapes and complex detailing the latest Witchery First Edition limited collection is an instant wardrobe update for the upcoming festive season. A collection consisting of silhouettes suitable for parties, day events through to sparkly nights out. Here’s three festive trends to try now.
There’s no surprise that the jumpsuit has supplanted the cocktail dress as there is nothing easier then throwing on a full length jumpsuit and instantly looking sleek. The Rampling jumpsuit is made from a luxurious silk and is the perfect versatile wardrobe staple that you’ll wear on many an occasion. Think sandals and fedora for a day down by the beach or heels and classic jewels for a dinner party with friends.
tip: Add a thick waist belt to your outfit to accentuate your waist-line and a pair of stiletto’s to elongate your figure.
Sequins of Events
With the festive season and end of the year celebrations right around the corner owning a little sparkle will never let you down. The short milk white jumpsuit is a wonder onesie with sequins and cross back detailing that provides a laid back evening-wear option that still retains the glam.
tip: Swop out your flats for a pair of kitten heels and a bold lip to take your look from day-time party to night-time sparkle.
The off the shoulder ribbed knit offers the perfect amount of sexy meets sweet. A style that feels just as right for a Summer soiree as it does for a beachside lunch. For a modern update opt for monochrome separates and a pair of trousers over a summer skirt or a pair of shorts. You don’t want to show off too much skin.
tip: Make sure you wear a good strapless bra with your off the shoulder top and add a quick dusting of bronzer on the décolletage to ensure the look is red-carpet ready.

Well that was a lazy weekend.
I got in from Ireland pretty late on Friday night and found myself sleeping in till 12pm on Saturday! That has not happened to me in months, I’m a complete morning person. So with Saturday pretty much being a total write off I lazed in bed all day devouring a new novel, Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. A kind of Girl on the Train meets Devil Wears Prada.
Lazy weekend’s call for “lazy” styling and by lazy styling I mean comfort. Thus the inspo behind today’s look post. Lounging around the house doesn’t have to mean recycling your boyfriends oversized tees or hanging out in your pj’s all weekend.
If I’m staying in for the weekend I always wake up and take a shower, even if I am just going to get straight into bed, helps focus the mind, and I always change into a clean comfortable twin set. This way if someone has to pop over last minute or I need to run down to the store for extra milk and eggs I don’t feel like a complete sloth.
Also my number one “lazy” trick when I don’t feel like wearing make-up is to throw on a pair spectacles. Trust me, works like a charm.

If white cotton shirts are my Summer staple, then knitwear is my Winter addiction. I can’t get enough, no matter how high my knitwear pile grows (yes, my clothing is categorised…) I just don’t stop buying more.
There’s just something so cosy about wearing a slightly oversized knit with a pair of denims or trousers and your favourite Winter scarf while you run out to go grab your mid day coffee.
This Winter I’ll be wrapping up in this warm wool-blend knit with a roll neck and extra long sleeves from Witchery. Keeping things on the more masculine side with baggy trousers and a pair of loafers. For a feminine approach, style your knit with skinny jeans and a pair of ankle boots.
Your alarm buzzes for the umpteenth time and you realise you only have 15min to get ready and on top of the rush you have no idea what to wear.
We’ve all been in above situation many times before and one of my go-to’s in such situation is the ever so loyal twinset. From the Wimbledon courts to a high street must, the twinset makes getting ready in the morning a whole lot easier.
I’ve kept my outfit casual with a pair of grey slip on’s but if you wondering how to pull this look off for work simply add a pair of heels and a loose bun.
There’s no reason not to get cosy this Winter.
With temperatures starting to drop it’s no secret that Winter is right around the corner… and what’s a must for every Winter? A pair of boots of course.
Skimping on proper good quality footwear is never an option, especially during Winter. No matter how many pairs of boots I own I still find myself browsing the stores trying to find that perfect pair of boots that are a.) Waterproof. I cannot stand wet socks! b.) Durable c.) comfortable and d.) of course stylish.
Layering is key during the colder months and I’ve teamed my cosy turtle neck with the ultimate double breasted military coat, a pair of fish nets (yes you heard me right, when was the last time you wore a pair of fishnets?) maroon Chelsea rain boots, a classic gumboot with a sleek style upgrade, and a simple clutch.
There’s something rather sleek about carrying around a clutch bag instead of a tote or cross-body. They form an essential part of any wardrobe, and can transform your look from classic to cool in a flash. Or course I opted for the more minimal clutch, though I did make sure that they matched my boots. The Perry Clutch from Witchery also comes in black and it’s on sale.
For a classic take on the Seventies I teamed a navy turtle neck (because sometimes it’s nice to take a break from black.) with a pair of cropped, frayed denims and tan leather accessories: the skinny belt and block studded heels, the two must have accessories this winter.
Belts are often the go to accessory to enhance the seasons latest trend. For an evening look add a velvet or bejewelled belt. For a feminine look and a way to enhance your figure when wearing a winter knit or your favourite winter coat add a waist belt that helps clinch in the waist line. Or for a simple, minimal update add a thin tan or black belt to your look.
Let’s talk about the block heel. Seen on the runway thanks to designers such as Anthony Vaccarello and Dior, the block heel is a comfortable and reliable heel. This particular pair has some added flair with it’s gold studs and double buckles. What’s not to love?
