November 2020

Are you all dressed down with nowhere to go? Of course you are! But don’t let lockdown slow down your creativity or productivity. We may still be in the middle of a pandemic, but at its best, fashion can decorate and inspire our days, and make us feel much better about ourselves. So, spark some joy, channel your inner Marie Kondo and get your winter wardrobe sorted. Here ​@theforeshoppingcentre we have a wide range of women’s fashion to get you stylishly equipped from top to bottom this winter. We hope you’ll find some inspiration in this edit from @josiesmithmedia showcasing some of the latest pieces that have just dropped in-store #everythingnow

Asda, Red Sparkle Roll Neck Top @ £8.00

This roll neck, long sleeved sparkle yarn top is ideal for the festive season. I love a polo neck – it gives a sleek and streamlined effect when it’s worn in a form-fitting thin knit like this one, and it shortens the length of the neck and visually increases the size of the bust. For just £8.00, this is a great layering piece. The red sparkle adds a bit of festive cheer and red is a great colour on just about everyone! (Model height is 5’8. Fabric composition: 58% viscose/23% nylon/13% metallized yarn/6% elastane.)

Primark, Oversized Superlong Padded Coat @ £35.00

The puffer jacket has become an annual sign of temperatures dropping, with everyone from snow bunnies to streetwear fashionistas sporting the cosy style. Happily, you don’t have to splurge on a Moncler to achieve padded perfection – just head to Primark @ the Forge! They have a whole range of padded jackets and coats available in various colours, lengths and styles at the moment, but this full length neutral from Primark has a touch of luxe that I love. Cocoon yourself in a duvet coat this winter! (Product code: 1918517)

Bon Marche, Linen Blend Shirt @ WAS £25.00 NOW £12.50

Although not entirely seasonally appropriate, a linen shirt is a wardrobe essential, and this grandad collar version is a perfect addition to your wardrobe at a very affordable price! The stylish printed fabric is wonderfully versatile for every occasion and lends itself to many different types of outfits. The grandad collar is a modern twist on a classic shape, while the sleeves can be worn full length or rolled up to a ¾ sleeve. Crafted from a lightweight linen-blend fabric this shirt will keep you cool on warm days, and can be popped under a preppy jumper now. (Material: 53% viscose, 47% linen/machine washable/product code: 042115)

What New York Wears, Faux Leather Trousers @ £29.99

These best sellers have been re-stocked just for you! Leather is one of this season’s coolest fabrics, both on and off the catwalk. Faux leather is very affordable, durable and will last a long time, and it’s super wearable. A staple for the cool girls of the world, leather trousers have long been considered a wardrobe addition reserved only for the likes of Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss. But, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t be able to pull off something as rock and roll as leather-look trousers, which have been seen on the catwalks of Givenchy, Versace and Jil Sander this season.

Bon Marche, Round Neck Cable Knit Jumper @ £25.00

Add a modern feel to your layers with this casual jumper featuring a unique take on the traditional cable-knit design. It has a round neckline and long sleeves for a classic finish, so it is super easy to style. Slip it on with jeans and boots to create a warm autumnal look in this chilly weather. (Length: 60cm (23.5in) for size 10, + 1cm for each additional size. Material: 100% acrylic/machine washable/product code: 081857) *several colours available

Primark, Black and White Grid Maxi Shirt Dress @ £15.00

Easy to wear, stylish and comfortable, a maxi dress is a must-have. Longer dresses generally suit every shape – from petite to plus-size, and they’re easy to dress up or down. This monochrome piece from Primark is a great shout for a smart corporate look, or a more stylish, smart winter outfit. Just add heeled sandals for a night out or simplify the look with athleisure trainers or block heeled boots for during the day. (Product code: 1192505)


Bon Marche, Showerproof Bomber Jacket @ £20.00

With an eye-catching colour and contemporary design, this showerproof bomber jacket adds a pop of brightness to your wardrobe. The zip fastened pockets and concealed zip fastening with a popper fastened placket make it practical too. For extra comfort, this lightweight jacket is fully lined and finished with a concealed hood; an ideal companion for the unpredictable Scottish weather. Just add wellies and plunge your hands deep into the angled pockets to stay cosy on your morning stroll with the dog. (Length: 63cm (24.8in) for size 10, +1cm for each additional size up to size 24.
