During the last lockdown period (which has now finished, unless you live in a Tier 3 area, where you are still in a lockdown by any other name, although that’s a topic for another post…) clothes shopping was limited to two areas – online, and the supermarkets. I took a trip to a local Tesco to do a food shop and was able to take a look around the F&F clothing section, which I have to say had some really nice things, some of which clearly had Christmas in mind, even though we can’t really go ‘outout’.
I’ve seen this sequined top with puffed sleeves on a few Instagram posts and think it is absolutely lovely, easy to wear with jeans or peg trousers, or even layered over a light polo neck thin knit. Pleated skirts are also still a story, and this one, with metallic thread running through, is perfect for Christmas wear that isn’t too ‘over the top’.
Christmas Day Red
Red is always a big colour for Christmas, and not just for the big man himself. F&F Clothing has some great red pieces including this classy floral spray midi dress which I think is perfect if you are having a three family gathering this December 25th. It would look great teamed with this cute fur handbag. If you like something cute and quirky, check out the bargain range of Christmas earrings that would also make a lovely gift idea.
Zoom Ready Tops
If you are still planning to spend your Christmas at home, you may still be looking for some Zoom worthy tops that will look good from a social distance. I got the pink and pearl number which is just the softest, cosiest fabric (you can see it on my Insta here.), whilst other tops have pretty floral patterns, gorgeous colours and lace, and are generally lovely enough to be the feature of your outfit, allowing you to wear something plain (including your pyjama bottoms or joggers) on the bottom.
Getting Winter Ready
With colder weather now upon us, and with it officially Winter, F&F has a lovely range of coats and accessories that are reasonably priced. My faves are the chic grey coat with the wrap over neckline featured below, which has a designer feel. Just gorgeous!
