Every year, winter comes around and it becomes a struggle every time when it comes to choosing an outfit for a night out. Jacket? No jacket? Tights? No tights? Here are some simple solutions. Save that cold-avoiding taxi cash and take some inspiration from these practical yet pretty outfits. With the dregs of winter still fading away that cold is still here, but now you’ll survive that breeze on the way to the club!

Red, gold and black is always a perfect combination. Keep warm with a long sleeve bodycon and rock it with thick black tights to stop that chill getting to your legs. And because the dress is bodycon, you can pair it with some comfortable and warm ankle boots and it will still look just as glamorous, finished with that hint of gold in the triple chain necklace.

A more casual outfit, yet dressed up with high wedges to make this the perfect winter party outfit. Hints of gold in the necklace and cuff add some needed sparkle! Layer up in glamorous shine disco pants, and a crop top under a classic jumper with a twist of furry texture. Stay even warmer by sneakily layering a few pairs of tights under the disco pants too…

Going to a club with a cloakroom and got that spare £1? In that case, sparkle like a snowflake in a white lace dress under this season’s key piece, the boyfriend coat. Stay monochrome with black shoes. These two texture wedges give the perfect point of interest to this outfit, the ankle straps softening the height so you don’t look too garish! Finish it all off with a simple gold chain and red lipstick.

“St. Tropez do it so well that you do look natural”

Britain’s fashion icon Kate Moss is now the face (and perfectly tanned body) of St. Tropez, with her nude photo-shoot showing nothing but elegance and beauty, apart from her particularly streak free tan. With the self tanning business having been established back in 1996, the skin finishing products have been nothing but brilliance for men and women, leaving “no reason to go around with that pasty pallor anymore” in the words of Moss herself. With the shoot in particular using St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse, the skin you see above exemplifies the easily acquirable tan which St. Tropez are renowned for.
With this being St. Tropez first ever global advertising campaign, it is clear that there was no one but Moss for the job.

Here Moss welcomes us to watch her photo shoot, and we advise you do exactly that.

Do you use self-tanning products? Will this new face to the brand draw you to use St. Tropez? Or do you prefer pale? Let us know in the comments!

With autumn leaving behind dreggs of floral prints and sunglasses, many of us are mourning our summer dresses and starting to wear those denim jeams a little too much, but transforming from summer may not be as hard as you think. But ‘how could I stay chic AND warm?’ I may hear you ask…my answer to you: The circle skirt. Wardrobe essential for AW12, a piece that is perfect for the classic look, the vintage look, the cutesy look; daywear, nightwear, workwear, these skirts can be woven into the key piece of any outfit or occasion.

The Circle Skirt

1) Go for a black skirt if you know it’ll be that piece you love and never want to take off; you can wear with simple black wedges and a dark printed top for that gothis, dark and elusive element, or go with a bold, bright, block colour shirt and bag to boast confidence despite the gloomy weather.

2) A wine coloured crotchet skirt matched with a denim button up and cute wedges creates the foundation of the perfect vintage look, match with a vintage black bowler or summer hat, oversized gold earrings with an under-collar necklace to channel the past while capturing contemporary glamour.

3) The dip-dye denim skirt from Nasty Gal strikes a bold edge, perfect with a black crop-top and thick gold chain with creepers for that modern-edgy feel, and then just switch to a pair of chunky heels (Jefferey Campbell Lita’s anyone?) to tranform from perfect daywear to the life of the party stunner.

4) Channel Chanel with this nude skirt, on sale in Matalan at just £8 – throw over a grey jumper and tuck in the front, some mid-height brogue heels in a dark grey and complete with simple black bangles and a low hanging bold necklace piece to look classic chic wherever you go.

5) Topshop’s ode to summer, yet perfectly wearable this autumn – darker floral print tranferring a typical sunshine piece into a slight ray into the gloomy cloud ridden weather we’re unfortunate enough to suffer; and for the brave clash with the Topshop daisy blousen for a bold print style.

6) Taking a simple black wedge and snazzing them up with a quilted look heel and small studs to give that edge to a cute shoe, perfect with almost any circle skirt, above and existant.

7) Oversized daisy shirt, throw on and tuck in the front, simple as that.

Do you love the circle skirts as much as we do? Will you be keeping these key in your autumn wardrobe? Or do you have a better idea of bringing summer forwards? Leave us your thoughts in the comments below!

So, charity shops. Some of you may be cringing reading those words, but this post is to change your mind. As a successful charity shopper some days there’s nothing like looking through the rails and finding the most beautiful item of clothing in your hands, for £2.50. Shoes, bags, scarves, blouses, skirts, belts…etc, the list of charity shop stock is endless, and with crazy prices, I ensure once you go once you’ll be heading to those charity shops every weekend instead of the shopping centre. And it will seriously increase the amount of cash left in your purse after a shopping spree. And to those who are STILL cringing at the idea of wearing secondhand clothes, I was once in that position until I was dragged into one, and ever since…

And finally, just to convince you further that this will be the best choice you make during the whole 2012, I’ve raided Lookbook for charity shop and thrift store spends, and heres a gallery of the best outfits featuring (and sometimes entirely consisting of) charity shop items…have a look!
