Thankfully fashion has moved on a bit and this season, whether you want to emanate elegance at the office party, look chic yet casual on Christmas day or work a relaxed but fashion-forward ensemble on Boxing Day, there is a trend for you.

By day, stay warm, comfortable and stylish in a chunky knit paired with leather shorts, a statement necklace and military-esque boots; or work the countryside chic look with a tweed jacket, riding boots and a cable knit.
