"Luxury is definitely the hot topic for this winter, and looking effortless and cool whilst drenched in it. If you saw any of the shows or have visited the stores yet this season, you will know exactly what I am talking about. Fur, leather and velvet can be found everywhere from Topshop to Chloe ranging from simple sweats to velvet maxi dresses.
Leather My key investment piece for winter are leather trousers – I know this might sound scary to some but teamed with the right heels, anyone can look awesome in leather trousers. If you are slim, you can choose from skin tight or a slightly looser fit. For the curvier lady, go for the thinner, shiny, leather look leggings and layer with a loose top to balance the look.
Quilting Delicate or bold quilting is everywhere this season. Here at Beaumont Organic, we’ve teamed it with velvet (another key trend fabric!) to add some extra luxury. Check out the “Jagoda Organic Cotton Lined Luxury Quilted Top” if you’re looking for a cute top with short sleeves. To stand out from the crowd with an instantly chic look, team the Jagoda top with leather trousers and your favourite winter boots. Alternatively if you’re looking for a classic, invest in a Lavenham jacket which is sure to never date.
There is something comforting and cosy about the androgyny trend – whether it’s wearing your boyfriend’s shirt or simply one you bought for yourself but would fit him. It’s sexy and cute at the same time and teamed with the right jewellery, it can be dressed up or down to suite any occasion. For me, this is a look I use in the day time when I want to be comfortable yet still stylish. I love to wear a loose unisex jumper like the “Ellen Luxury 100% Wool V Neck Knitted Jumper”, teamed with simple skinny jeans and some heeled boots or wedge trainers. It’s an easy look for a Friday when you’re ready for the weekend but still want to look smart in the office.Some of my other favourite key trends for the season that should not be missed are tartan, highlights of bright & bold colours, influences of punk and wrapping up in luxurious oversized outerwear. Happy Shopping!"
