It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and along with it comes the most fabulous fashion edit of the year. From sparkles to scarves, this season has all the bases covered so you can go from desk to dancefloor looking and feeling your most stylish self. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite trends this winter.
Whether you love it or hate it, velvet is huge this season. While it seems to sit in the marmite category of fabrics, it is perfect for the colder months! Being thicker than many other fabrics, velvet will keep you that little bit warmer while still looking a million bucks!
There is no denying that velvet looks seriously lavish, add a little contrast in texture and colour with accessories like the Conkca ‘Buzz’ cross body phone bag in plum - pretty and practical!
2. Pop of Colour
If you are anything like me, your wardrobe is made up of mostly neutral colours. If it ain’t black, white or beige, I am scared. But a solution is here! This season, bold and bright accessories are doing the heavy lifting when it comes to keeping your outfit colourful.
For this trend, I chose Chilli Red accessories, like the ‘Oxford’ 100% cashmere scarf and ‘Windermere’ cashmere and merino wool gloves for added warmth, and finished the look with the ‘Aster’ leather tote bag in ‘Cherry’ from the Pure Luxuries London Bloomsbury Collection.
Sparkles aren’t just reserved for parties anymore - this season, all that glitters really is gold. Whether you are going for a night out with the girls or want to add a little understated sparkle to your office attire, you can’t go wrong with sequins, glitter and metallics this winter.
We chose to go all out with sequin dresses! The understated ‘Osterly’ leather pouch in Blush Pink pairs beautifully with this outfit, adding a little contrast. And to keep your coins and cards safe and secure all night long, the Pure Luxuries London 'Nimes' purse in Misty Rose has you covered.
4. Pretty in Pink
Add a little feminine cheer to these frosty mornings with a touch of pink! This colour made a fashionable comeback in 2021 but it is certainly stealing the spotlight this winter. Whether you are adding pink accessories to your look or channelling Elle Woods, think pink this season!
I have styled this pink coat with our stunning burgundy 'Oxford' scarf and 'Windermere' gloves from the Pure Luxuries London cashmere collection. Finish the look with the ‘Abigail’ shoulder bag in pomegranate. Perfectly pretty in pink... even if I do say so myself.
P.S. Bonus points for styling pink with red!
5. Oversized is Everything
Yes, you read that title right. Oversized is everything - at least this season! Want to be cosy and comfortable in joggers and a hoodie but still want to look chic? Oversized coat. Want to stay warm and toasty while being the fantastic fashionista that you are? Oversized coat. Want to be able to sit on a freezing cold bench on your lunch break without getting a chilly bottom? Oversized coat. I am telling you, there really isn’t much an oversized coat can’t do.
This brown, oversized coat pairs beautifully with the ‘Chichester’ shoulder bag from the Pure Luxuries London Prestige Collection. Add a cosy cashmere scarf and you are on trend, toasty and can sit on really cold benches. What more could you ask for?
6. Cut-Out Comeback
Cut-out designs seem to be in fashion one minute and out the next, it can be hard to keep up. This black dress with cut-out detail to the front is perfect if, like me, you like your clothes to stand the test of time and not be out of style in a matter of weeks. It is simple, sophisticated and beautifully understated - perfect if you are wondering what to wear to the office Christmas party!
I styled this with our versatile ‘Senga’ cross body clutch bag from the Conkca Originals Collection. Keep as a clutch bag for the selfies and if the night gets a little wild, attach the strap to keep your belongings safe and secure while you bust some moves on the dancefloor.
7. Of Course, there are Corsets
Another trend that seems like it is here to stay! Corsets came along with the Y2K craze back in 2020, and if I really have to relive 90s fashion, at least this is one I can get on board with. Corsets are perfect to pair with your favourite jeans on a night out or to add a little 'something' to a plain white t-shirt.
Wear with a sleek and simple clutch like the ‘Cherish’ leather clutch from the Conkca Originals Collection for the perfect outfit to take you from day to night.
8. Going Robe
If I wasn’t able to convince you to follow the oversized coat craze, perhaps a robe coat is a good compromise. They are having a moment this winter with floor-sweeping styles and asymmetrical designs, but you can’t go wrong with a classic belted trench coat.
Wear open for a more oversized look or belt up and show off your stunning silhouette. We finished off this look with the ‘Pimm’ bag in burgundy from the Pure Luxuries London Gold Collection for a beautifully versatile outfit.
9. These Boots are Made for Walking
There is no shoe more suited to the Great British winter than the trusty reinforced boot. Their chunky design pairs beautifully with lightweight skirts, structured trousers and everything in between.
You can wear chunky boots with pretty much any outfit! I teamed my favourite Docs with our super-spacious ‘Milton’ tote bag in Smoky Blue and our ‘Oxford’ scarf from our cashmere collection for an outfit ready to go Christmas shopping!
10. Fur Coats
It has been a while since we have seen fur coats trending and I couldn’t be happier! There is no garment more cosy and warm than a plush, fluffy coat and they look beautiful over eveningwear, great for this time of year!
The ‘Poppy’ handbag in Dusky Blue from our Pure Luxuries Bloomsbury Collection contrasts beautifully with beige and is the perfect icy colour for the winter months.
