New Year, new style? Ethical shopping to update your wardrobe is a tricky business. Winter sales are excellent for your budget but can be confusing, if not overwhelming for making style decisions don’t you think? Luckily Sian, our Design Assistant, is going to talk you through her style secrets and some of her favourites pieces from this season to help you out.

This is my absolute favourite coat from this season. Its rich tones make you feel just that bit warmer as soon as you put it on. Its neutral base colour will compliment any hair colour so is the perfect go to treat for any of you lovely ladies looking for a new jacket. Our Aurora print is so exquisite and along with the velvet fabric, it makes you feel a million dollars. It’s a winter must have.

I have this red cord skirt and the blue version and I live in both. I dress up the red skirt with my leather jacket and chunky suede boots for nights with vino and friends. I recommend wearing one of our Organic long sleeved tops to keep cosy. I wear my blue skirt with my green Doc Martens and a chunky knit cardi in the studio and for weekend walks. I highly recommend this skirt because its soft needlecord is so comfortable, the length is practical yet I still feel feminine and sophisticated.

This is my go to when it’s freezing and I don’t know what to wear. It is the most snuggly and warm dress I own. I love the grey version and add a pop of pattern with a printed scarf and my red junky boots. Kate, our Senior Designer, wears hers with our trousers and converse. We have three colours available and the dress skims the body so is beyond comfortable yet still flattering.

Building an ethical wardrobe that you love, to avoid the “I have nothing to wear” panic is tough. It is a struggle that seems never ending until you get your key pieces in. This velvet skirt has ended all my melt downs for example, when I meet friends in the evenings where I want to feel nicer than normal. Our Aurora skirt has become my “Key piece” in my night-time wardrobe and I highly recommend it to all of you ladies. I wear mine with suede boots and a black jacket with chunky jewellery. The ethnic print injects flashes of colour to brighten up any grey winter day too.

My final style recommendation from our sale is our plain needlecord pinafore dress. I own the shark colour and it is my work staple. I wear it over our Organic jersey tops – both plain and printed versions. The shape skims the body so it is particularly flattering and as it’s just above the knee it is a perfect length for work. I also jazz it up with funky vintage shirts, Doc Martens or chunky leather boots. As it is plain the grey hue will suit all skin and hair tones, so grab yourselves one whilst we still have them in stock.
