From a woollen striped two-piece to a souped-up velvet suit, Christine Lampard’s Wallis collection meets all your winter wardrobe needs…
When it comes to seasonal dressing that manages to accomplish being both cosy and cool during the winter months, there are few one-stop-shops that can be relied upon.
For the seasoned shopper, this will come as no great surprise, but for the time-poor among us, it simply won’t do. What our winter wardrobes need isn’t just a bit of a fashion facelift, but also somewhere to simplify the process of finding new pieces.
Enter Wallis’ latest collection with Christine Lampard, which is the presenter’s first with the brand, and is brimming with a clutch of winter staples, the sort that will take you from noon to night with minimal effort.
“I’m really excited about this collection,” Lampard says of the line.
“It’s a really lovely eclectic mix. We have your party season dress, your party suit – which is one of my favourites and lots of knitwear.”
For anybody confused at where to start when building their winter wardrobe, these six pieces are the go-to foolproof fashion staples that will stand the test of time and look good while doing it.
1. The velvet suit
A timeless winter staple, the velvet blazers virtues have been extolled at large over the years, but never has its ability to work so hard been usurped. Throw on with its coordinating trousers - added bonus; they both work just as well as solo pieces as they do together.
2. The beaded knit
Make this mid-winter pop with a chic knit that adds some fun to your winter wardrobe. This embellished number is perfect for the days when you want to wear all-black, with a little sprinkle of fashion fairy dust, or if you want to pair with your velvet trousers for a festive lunch. The possibilities really are endless.
3. The pleather skirt
A skirt is the perfect way of dressing to be look both put-together and pared-back during the winter months. Pair with your beaded knit for a look that’s perfect for day-to-dusk dressing, or pair with a plain T-shirt and your velvet blazer for serious style points.
4. The knitted co-ord
The prospect of getting dressed is hardly the most appealing when it’s pitch-black outside, but when your wardrobe is home to knits as good – and classic – as this funnel-neck jumper, it becomes decidedly easier. Pair with the matching skirt for a go-to out fit that is cosy but cool and requires zero energy to make you stand out.
5. The ruffle dress
This burgundy and gold dress is about to become your party staple. It looks just as good with chunky boots as it does with heels and its wrap style works for everybody. Pop on some gold hoops to bring out the glitz in the material.
Christine Lampard x Wallis is an edited collection with everything you need for autumn winter. From cosy everyday knits, to statement coats and elegant party-ready dresses, this collection is all about pieces that will have you looking and feeling your best.
