SOFT FOCUS

There’s no stronger sign that winter is approaching than the clocks going back. It might be increasingly cold and gloomy outside but that's all the more reason to snuggle-up at home. This week, the Style & Living team has stuck with a suitably cosy theme to help you step comfortably into the chilly season. Isabelle O’Carroll’s top pick of the week is a gorgeously soft shearling tote bag from our Limited Edition collection with biker-inspired zips and studs, while I’m sure kids will love getting all wrapped up in our fun fox-motif cardigan. Food & wine editor Becky Sunshine picks a scrumptious cheese selection featuring a rich blue British stilton presented on edible crisp-bread plates – the perfect treat after lazy weekend suppers, and ideal washed down with a warming glass of red wine. If it’s ultimate comfort you’re yearning for, don’t miss Saturday’s sleepwear Trend Spotlight, a round-up of cosy nightwear including Fair Isle onesies, super-soft dressing gowns and festive pyjamas that will make you want to stay in a hibernate (while offering plenty of Christmas gift inspiration, if you’re getting organised early). Finally, don’t forget to put the clocks back on Saturday night – it's time to enjoy that extra hour in bed in style.
