Each month we pick our top three products, and tell you why. This month, IT’S CHRISTTTTT-MASSSSS! Need we say more?
Why? Festive glamour doesn’t get better than this – part of the SS14 collection from Trasparenze, the gorgeous Yacht Tights have arrived early. Featuring a gorgeous glittery mock hold up design and polka dot pattern in silver (the gold version will hit shelves in January), these sheer lovelies are the perfect way to revive that LBD in time for the party season.
Style With: What else? The LBD. Finish with glitzy silver accessories, a beaded clutch and high, strappy heels.
Wear to: The office Christmas party, obviously. Just make sure you’re prepared for the barrage of male attention headed your way!
How much? £14.00 / €17,00 / $22.50
Why? The temperatures have really begun to bite, and all the hot chocolates in the world can’t reverse the effect of standing on a train platform for twenty minutes in non-weather-appropriate hosiery. It’s no wonder then that the Pretty Polly Fleecy Tights are our bestselling product at the moment – we’re selling them by the shedload. With a gorgeously soft fleece lining, these mega thick 200D Opaques will fend off even sub zero temperatures – bye bye, ugly thermals.
Style With: Knee high boots, a cosy jumper dress and cocoon coat – layer a strap top underneath for even more warming power.
Wear to: anywhere you’re likely to be outside for a sustained amount of time – we’ll be wearing ours to mooch around the Christmas markets.
How much? £9.95 / €11,30 / $20.00
Why? There’s only one thing that’s going to motivate us to get back to the gym come January, and that’s new gymwear to look forward to. Enter the new Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant – ankle length leggings with a slimming secret. Made with curved seams to make you appear slimmer and a medium control level to firm up those wobbly bits, these are perfect for those who want to exercise in style. There’s no getting away from the fact that these are pricey, but it really is a case of you get what you pay for, and with the Spanx name you case be sure that quality and longevity come as part and parcel, too.
Style With: Because of the shaping power of these, you can get away with tighter gym wear than usual, so we’re thinking a stretchy tank top to show off those curves. If you’re not sure about wearing leggings on their own, you can layer tracksuit bottoms or shorts over the top, too.
Wear to: The gym – no longer will you have to hide if you spot a familiar face en route!
How much? £92.00 / €113.00 / $149.00
