With the season in full swing and Jack Frost nipping at our noses, we’ve been concentrating on keeping the cold at bay this week, starting with a menswear classic, the camel coat – wise men, get on board now. Talking of must-haves, we’ve also got winter wrapped up with key men’s looks for every festive occasion and womenswear editor Charlene Barton’s rundown of the season’s indispensable accessories. Meanwhile, lingerie editor Maggie Davis has found the cosiest socks to curl up in front of the fire in. Elsewhere, our attention turns to seeing in the New Year with a bang (or should that be a ‘pop’?) as food, wine and flowers editor Becky Sunshine suggests the perfect premium bubbly for your party and beauty editor Jess Clark faces up to the morning after with a brilliant skin-saving facial treatment – great during this most merry of seasons.
Whether you’re looking to dress to impress at a black tie event, or simply want to smarten up for the New Year, we’ve sought out the sartorial expertise of our favourite menswear bloggers for some super-helpful style tips. From the best party wardrobe staples and the sharpest suits to those all important finishing touches, David Evans (greyfoxblog.com) and Jonathan Daniel Pryce (garconjon.com) have all the advice you need to see in to 2015 in style.
