Weekly Wish List: Laid-Back January Style

January 2018 Style Essentials


January 2018 Style Essentials

Velvet scarf by Rockins | Khaki parka by New Look | Cropped cable knit by Topshop | Studded ankle boots by Chloé | Saddlebag by The Cambridge Satchel Company | Leopard print skirt by Topshop | Vintage jeans by H&M | Bonjour T-shirt by River Island | Striped dress by Next


The last thing we want to do after an indulgent and relaxing Christmas break is squeeze into skinny jeans and form-fitting dresses, right? I’ve found it very hard to return to regular clothes after two weeks of pyjamas and onesies. So this week’s wish list is all about laid-back, comfortable style buys.

Ease into 2018 with Next’s stretchy stripe dress (the tie-front detail will disguise any Christmas food babies), and accessorise with a fabulous pair of studded ankle boots. Or swap your favourite skinnies for H&M’s vintage-inspired jeans and River Island’s slogan tee.

But topping my wish list, this week, is Topshop’s leopard print skirt. It will look fabulous paired with black tights and a chunky knit. I’d finish the look with New Look’s khaki parka (a winter style essential) and The Cambridge Satchel Company’s saddlebag. It comes in five colour-combos, but oxblood is my favourite.

What are your January 2018 style essentials? And have any of these items caught your eye?
