So if you’re in need of a gift but unsure where to look, we’ve rounded up some of our must-haves for Christmas and for the New Year.

One of the hidden gems that seems to have burst through the scene this year is definitely Kim K’s lounge-wear-meets lingerie line SKIMS. From their forever sold-out floor-length jersey dresses to their fluffy and cosy matching sets, we’re been rocking their clothes all year round and making the most of it during our WFH stages. But as we start to venture out more with clubs and bars becoming our homes again, we’re in need of some new drip and SKIMS understood the assignment. Dropping their new Velvet collection just in time for the winter, we’re currently loving their new velvet coset which teams perfectly with a pair of baggy high-waisted ripped jeans and strappy heels.

Debuting a new silhouette with a chunky block heel, the boot is ideal for those blisteringly cold winter days and can easily be used for those transitional day-to-night ‘fits.

If there is one brand that we’ve fell in love with this past year, it’s WMNS WEAR. From their classic basics to their innovative designs, the brand have gone from strength to strength in the past two years and their latest drop is no different.

Staying true to their sophisticated aesthetic, the brand keeps things simple for the design aspect, but that doesn’t stop you from going all out on the accessories.
