January Style Guide
Ladies, it’s that time of year again, the jovial festivities have left us all feeling rather guilty and yes, perhaps we didn’t need that third - or fourth - roast potato, and maybe the cream was optional on the pudding, but what the heck we did it anyway!
Now the New Year is here, it’s time to get back on track, whoever you are and whatever detox you’re on, it’s time liven up one of the dullest months of the year with a new look. Yes, the weather may be fluctuating, but with my simple guide you will be able to brave the cold, adapt to the warm and hopefully tackle the rain frizz free.
The first item to help you win over January is this vintage inspired roll neck ribbed jumper from New Look. This jumper is right on trend at the moment following recent catwalks that expressed the industries radical 70s obsession. Yes, girls you can visit a bygone era without looking like a throwback.
Paired with this, I have injected some plaid –something I’m simply mad about this year and so should you! This fun mini skirt from River Island reflects the same joie de vivre from the past but gives it a modern twist with a metallic zipper at the back.
Adding to the vintage silhouette, we have this sleek black sleeveless relaxed fit tailored jacket from River Island. This is sure to add an extra layer of warmth to your outfit, especially on days when the weather is being less than forgiving.
To add some colour to the outfit, I have included a boozy berry fedora hat from Topshop. This is sure to add refinement to your outfit, as well as a chic edge.
To complement the burgundy, this Sekonda gold bracelet watch is just the ticket. The metallic case and bracelet is right on trend amongst so many fashion watch brands at the moment, including the use of seasonal hues bursting through dials.
With any Sekonda watch you are guaranteed to possess a watch with top quality quartz movements, and with this particular model you also have a timepiece that benefits from water resistance up to 50metres: It’s practical and, above all, affordable.
The final item is a pair of stately riding boots, crafted from smooth rich leather with gold buckles and side zip. These are utterly marvellous boots from DUNE, and they are sure to make an appearance every year, just remember to look after them and they will look after you.
So, that’s your lot for January style ladies. I trust you have been listening closely and are ready to utilise what you’ve learned. Don’t forget to keep checking back on the Timekeepers guide for all of the latest news on watches and the fashions that influence.
