From damson to magenta, meet this season's hottest colour palette – the berries. Worn head to toe or just a dash, this trend will see you stylishly through the holiday season and beyond.

Berry nice

If you’re in the market for a new everyday coat this winter, don’t automatically reach for classic black or navy. Our bright plum fleece-lined mac will fit the bill perfectly! As well as being super practical, cosy and showerproof – it looks great too. I’ve teamed it with cream pull-on leggings and a chunky oatmeal sweater, the perfect look for the school run or walking the dog around the park!

Red alert

This time of year calls for a standout top that works with jeans or PU leather-look leggings for an easy night-out style solution. Look for unique detailing like these cut-out lace sleeves in on-trend raspberry that take a simply cut blouse from beautiful to breathtaking! I love the shape of this blouse – a neat shoulder line that gently flares over your boobs and tummy make it comfy AND flattering!

Prints charming

Embracing the winter berry colour palette doesn’t just mean block colours – look for a print that incorporates all the shades for a different way of bringing this trend into your everyday wardrobe. Worn solo, this dress is a great style solution for a day in the office (try with a belt and heeled boots) or a sweater over the top teamed with chunky socks and boots for effortless weekend styling.

Lounge around

Stylish loungewear is back, and this burgundy co-ord set is perfect for the holiday season. Wear it solo on Christmas morning for a comfortable and Instagramable look while present opening, then pull up the sleeves while you work in the kitchen. Throw on a pair of white pumps and our camel duffle coat for visiting neighbours or picking out your Christmas tree! Remember, all the neutrals (especially grey and camel) make the perfect partner for the berry shades.

Sugar plum fairy

Flares are the trouser shape of the season, and I am in love with this corduroy pair in plum – as is Alex Jones! Cut to fit like a dream, smooth across the tummy and gently flared, these trousers are super flattering as the stretch fabric caters to the season of indulgence – mince pie anyone? I’ve styled them with my favourite rib cardi, or you could try teaming them with an oversized boyfriend sweater and trainers. For the petite amongst us, they are available in two leg lengths – BONUS!
