PERFECT FOR YOU: The extra essentials for your weekend look

Posted on: November 2, 2012

Fabulously cosy coat + your favourite jeans + a vibrant knit hat. Hello casual chic. It used to be that puffas and parkas were the domain of high-performance functional gear. But the high street and designers alike have brought the great outdoors indoors which a stylish array of fashion lead outer wear. Thank goodness for that. We’ve filled in the best of the rest for you with a selection of must-have scarves and winter boots.

Each season you know you can depend on those designer must-haves in particular versatile printed scarves. Last season it was all about the Yves Saint Laurent cashmere grey animal print. This season YSL has warmed up the tones with a deep khaki print – a piece that will take your from weekend coat to little black dress – whatever your wish. For a similar feel you might like Hugo Boss’s charcoal grey printed modal scarf, ideal for styling up a corporate chic look. Cosy up with an oversized Topshop pom-pom trim scarf or create a vintage style collar effect with BHS’s leopard print faux-fur piece.


Winter boots are becoming a bit of a fashion accessory in their own right – highly addictive, highly desirable and one pair sometimes just isn’t enough. From biker style to wedge ankle boots, what’s a girl supposed to do with so many choices?! Isabel Marant’s high top trainers don’t even touch sides in department stores and online retailers alike. Then again they might not even touch sides with your budget. Never fear – snap up this trend with thanks to Dorothy Perkins’ take on these designer lust-haves. For an ultra-smooth and sophisticated biker boot I can’t help but fall in love with these Stuart Weitzman beauties. I particularly like the wrap around buckle effect. I have skinny legs and most biker boots could double up as a shopping bag for me they are so roomy. Equestrian style boots are one of our most “liked” styles on Dressipi. It seems you all have a thing for horses, uniforms, and riding chic?! I blame Prince Harry. I quite like that these Anthropologie chocolate brown leather boots are a mid-calf equestrian style as opposed to knee length. It makes for a change and it’s all a little less high maintenance which is what you want on a lazy weekend. I also like that they are called Gallop Boots! If you love the cosiness of the concept of Uggs but would prefer a much more elegant and streamlined style you might like these Salvatore Ferragamo  suede and shearling boots. They are gorgeous. Happy weekend. Natalie x

I would like a suggestion for something to wear to a Bridal shower during the day. I tend to wear all black to everything and want to wear something different. Any suggestions, I am open to any ideas. Louise
