THE TURTLENECK

The Brits call it the polo-neck, some refer to it as the roll-neck, and many use the term: turtle-neck. Whatever you choose to call it, there’s something magical about slipping into it, on a frosty winter morning. Swaddled from the neck down, in the softest of yarns… it’s always been a staple, with little girls wearing it under their pinafore dresses. This season, we explore the versatility of this old faithful, and the way in which it has the power to carry you from brunch, to date night, from the office and into the off duty.

PERFECT PAIRINGS: NAIL AND LIP COMBOS TO TRY

Like matching your bag to your shoes, sometimes coordinating your lips and nails can be a guessing game of what’s in and what’s incredibly dated. Luckily this season, beauty trends took a decidedly simple approach to colours, sticking more to deep dark hues and light, nude shades.

THE STYLE CYCLE

To celebrate its 5th birthday, Vestiaire Collective have launched an auction, entitled, The StyleCycle. Some of today’s most influential style icons have rummaged through their wardrobes, and donated a much-loved piece: from Cara Delevingne’s camouflage Mulberry bag, to Laura Bailey’s Dolce & Gabbana playsuit; Caroline de Maigret’s very own Chanel bag, to Elin Kling’s signature oversized coat.

 

What makes this particularly interesting is that each iconic person has also chosen their own cause, to which the proceeds will be donated. Not only is Vestiaire Collective raising money for an array of brilliant charities, they are also reminding us that selling pieces we no longer wear will increase sustainability in the fashion industry, whilst also helping us towards your next purchase. This is a treasure trove worth delving into. Get bidding, you have 2 days, 22 hours, and counting…
