River Island £36.00

This is what I imagine one of the Kardashian’s to be wearing come December the 25th! This cream pearl trim jumper is long sleeved, with a fitted turtleneck, a frill shoulder design and pearl detailing. Model wears a UK 8 and is 175cm/5’9” tall. (20% Nylon (polyamide)/31% Polyester/49% Viscose and the product no is: 790436. Iron on reverse, machine wash at max 40°C very gently.) *Please note there are matching bottoms available!

Bon Marche £5.00

They say, “Immediately feel the comfort every time you wear these open-toed slippers. The snug and soft material keeps your feet toasty, while the open front means air can flow around your toes. As they can be machine washed, keeping these slippers fresh and super soft is simple.” I say – I have these! And yes, they can just be flung in the washing machine. A bargain for a fiver! (Material: 100% Textile/Product Care: Machine Washable/Product Code: 162025)

River Island £35.00

These are a little bit of festive extra! I like the idea of slipping these glam beige sequin knitted joggers on over the Christmas holidays. They are knitted and fitted with a drawstring feature and sequin embellishment. Model wears a UK 8 and is 175cm/5’9” tall. (Product no is: 789327 and they are 36% Acrylic/3% Elastane/61% Polyester/Machine wash at max 40°C very gently and do not iron them.) *Please note there is a matching top available!

River Island £42.00

Just because it’s leisure/loungewear, doesn’t mean it has to be plain! This black borg satin, RI branded sweatshirt is really eye-catching. I think it’s an ideal Christmas gift for a teenager. It’s long sleeved and high necked, with a loose fit and zip-front detailing. Model wears a UK 8 and is 175cm/5’9” tall. (Product no: 78882 and it’s 100% Polyester. Iron on reverse and machine wash at max 40°C gently. Do not tumble dry!) *Please note there are matching bottoms available!

Asda £14.00

I love this top because of its polo neck detailing. (I’m getting older – I don’t like my neck these days!) This cool and casual pink high neck cropped hoodie has drawstring detailing, a long sleeve, a cropped hem, and the model in the photo is 5’8″. (Fabric composition: 70% Cotton 30% Polyester.)

Asda £14.00

These black sparkly joggers look awesome! Although, I don’t think I’d team them with heels (I can’t remember the last time I wore heels!) These bottoms are perfect for a kitchen disco. They have an elasticated drawstring waistband, silver tone trim, sparkle body and they are made from a stretch fabric with a full length leg. The model height is 5’10” – hence they look a bit short! (Fabric composition: 91% Polyester 5% Metallized Yarn 4% Elastane.)

Bon Marche £15.00

They say, “When you want to dress in jeans but have that extra flexibility, these jeggings are the perfect solution. The slim leg is ideal for styling with boots and the contrast stitching makes the pocket detailing stand out. With an elasticated waistband, these jeggings are comfortable and easy to pull on, ideal for creating a put-together outfit on busy days.” I say – I’d team these with an oversized chunky winter knit, maybe with a polo neck, some funky glittery socks and oversized trainers. These look super comfy! They are also available in four leg lengths: 25in (64cm), 27in (69cm), 29in (74cm), 31in (79cm.) (Material: 64% Cotton, 34% Polyester, 2% Elastane/Product Care: Machine Washable/Product Code: 119070)
