Coats? Tick. Jumpers? Tick. Sparkly ankle boots? Why not! Boost your cosy and casual looks with a bit of festive footwear sparkle. There’s plenty of choice, whether you opt for one of those fabulous on-trend glittery lurex boots or something sparkly and embellished or this edgier gold studded pair. Keep separates paired back and simple but go for bold when it comes to your cover-ups. Natalie x

Up the ante on your casual looks with a pair of military style boots. They just lend themselves so perfectly to chunky knits, heavy duty duffle coats and all round winter warmers. This knit dress by M&S is a great casual piece but you can also spruce it up with a higher heeled ankle boot or a pair of courts for a smart casual work look. Add a fair isle knit for a festive finishing touch. Natalie x

Suddenly, the quilted puff has become ultra-cool…especially if you find a square cut, boxy oversized style in a wild colour. Mango has hit the email on the head with this piece. When it comes to casual looks, branch out from neutral knits with this striped lurex jumper. Add bikers and …go. Natalie x

Velvet has always been a festive season look. But this year it’s been given a real style reboot as one of the key catwalk trends, and not necessarily just reserved for party looks. There is nothing more indulgent than a plush velvet dress that sweeps all the way down to the floor. This DVF number is a real show stopper. You might also like something like this from the Reformation £315 or this dark purple dress from Wallis £35. Velvet lends itself to all things sparkly like these glitter accessories. You can also go for 100% opulence and style with jewelled bags or shoes and glitzy jewelled chandelier earrings. Natalie x

Here’s one of those work looks you can ‘throw’ together and you just know that it will work each time. Start with a cosy v-neck cashmere jumper in navy. This is one of those wardrobe keepers. It will take you from work to weekend – just add skinny jeans and ankle boots – and it’s the type of piece that’s perfect to travel in if you want to give those onboard looks a luxe feel. Style with a pair of tailored grey wool trousers and use your accessories to give a personal twist. Go for a check scarf and animal-print clash combination …it’s the new way to do  prints this season and add a jewel tone bag. Natalie x
