Christmas 2013 Blog

Monday, 2 December 2013  |  Ursula

I can't believe that November has passed and Christmas is so near. I do realise I say the same thing every year and I promise myself I will be more prepared for next year with present buying but this never happens, will I ever learn? During November I was loving the warm winter colours, chunky knits and luscious skincare products to protect me from the cold that have become available recently. I also have been stocking up big time on warm hats, gloves and scarves! You can never ever go wrong with a stylish accessory when you have overloaded your body with layers to keep warm.

Stylish Layers

I believe statement knitwear is a must have this season. In the cold mornings when all you can think about is wrapping warm up as quick as possible rather than spending hours making yourself looking fabulous. So, how do we look warm AND stylish? Easy peezy, by wearing a fabulous coat, cardigan or jumper!

Fearne Cotton

 

Fearne Cotton knows how to give an outfit a certain edge by adding a stylish tartan coat. We have a beautiful double-breasted grey and white tartan coat by Paisie at Match, which is just perfect for transitional season weather. This coat can be worn over dresses or trousers to complete an outfit.

Another favourite of mine from match has to be our glitzy jumpers that have just arrived in store and online here at Match. Teaming up a statement jumper with jeans or leggings is definitely the way forward in this cold season as it gives you an effortlessly chic look. Below are a few examples of our winter warmers collection.

Do you want a Christmas jumper that is not too over the top? Well, we have the perfect one for you! This over sized pink snowflake jumper is truly super soft and comfortable. With fitted sleeves and loose body it is the perfect combos for an everyday wear especially if you feel like stuffing your face with Christmas treats!

Celebrities are looking great this season with their low key and casual style. Diana Vickers looks lush in her jumper and fur coat combo.  I believe having a statement fur jacket or coat in the winter adds a beautiful vintage feel to an outfit.

This designer inspired coat will keep you warm and on trend. The black wool knit and black pleather sleeves are a unique look. Wear this coat open or zipped up, either way this is a stylish jacket that is perfect for the winter.

Jump for my love Jumpsuits are massive this year and are a great alternative to wearing a dress this season, as they are ultra flattering and easy to wear.

Alessandra Ambrosio  

Alessandra Ambrosio effortlessly flaunts her jumpsuit whilst shopping in Beverly Hills. They look classic and elongate your legs tremendously. They can be worn with a pair of killer heels or sandals during the summer for a timeless look. Match believes a jumpsuit is a staple piece to have in your wardrobe this year.

Belted-Jumpsuit

If you prefer to show your legs a playsuit is also a great alternative.

I don’t mean to sound old before my time but this weather really is a killer to my hair, skin and nails. It is as if my body just shuts down as soon as it gets cold! So this year I thought I would be prepared and purchase some products. Bed head and Burt’s Bees have been my hair and skin saviour.

This lip balm is truly wonderful. It softens my lips, prevents chapped lips and it smells nice! I will 100% be trying out their other products.

Bed Head Tigi  

And finally my hair saviour has to be this perfect couple above. Bed head by TIGI has always been a favourite of mine but the price tag does put me off sometimes. When my hair decides to go a bit mental and out of control this is when I will splash out on some treats for it. This recovery duo is just fabulous, it hydrates and softens my hair as if I have just come out of the salon. I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and amazing New Year! Eat as much as you can and dance the night away!
