Feeling the Pinch

January is a tough month. Party season is over and all you can think about is a beautiful beach as the current weather decides to succumb to its cruel winter credentials. Jeans and purses are beginning to feel the pinch and Instagram is just one long feed of gym pics and avocados…

Well here at WSd HQ we’re taking a stand against the January blues and embracing all that this month brings. As Sarah says, "It doesn't cost a fortune to layer up against the weather when you use the sale to work a current look". Here's our picks...

When your budget is tight its important to make clever investments and a tailored yet cool jacket will see you through the season and beyond.  For a sartorial pick me up the English Girl Jungle Rock Tuxedo Jacket is a must (was £85, now £59). With its slouched and relaxed fit this piece will work with your fave jeans, a cozy roll neck and boots for a casual (and warm!) daytime look. Or rock it with leathers and a luxe cami for an evening soirée. When things start to warm up, sling your tuxedo over a basic tee for glamorous grunge.
Have a serious think about the gaps in your wardrobe that need filling. Go for pieces that can be re-worked in a whole variety of ways. The Uncivilized Batwing top, now just £19 (yep that’s right) is a wardrobe essential that will prove its worth season after season. Sarah kept the cold at bay by pairing this staple with a beautiful Becksöndergaard Rodney wool and silk scarf (£65) and added some glam with a statement necklace. The Vero Moda Biker PU leggings (now £28) not only work as a fab partner to this top but will also be your go-to trouser of choice for a very long time. These babies have a wondrous lining that keeps you oh so warm and quite literally work with anything. Wear them with a long shirt and brogues or just a casual jumper and cool kicks.

Equally sling the Batwing on with Uncivilised coated luxe joggers (were £70, now £35) and a pair of Sol Sana Tab loafers (were £99, now £50) and you have yourself the perfect run around outfit.

No matter the season, denim is the ultimate essential. The fabulously tailored Uncivilised Pagan playsuit (now £37.50) totally holds its own in the denim stakes and is a great investment that won’t go out of style. This cool one-piece makes getting dressed a dream! Style a la Sarah with the Becksöndergaard Tajimi beaded collar (was £39 now £30) and for braving the cold, the Mink Pink Oh Deer faux fur bambi bomber, now just £39!  

Banish morning wardrobe rage with a dependable jumper. The Vero Moda Kia wool blend alpine knit (Now £25) can be worked in so many ways, it’s warm and cozy and it makes just enough of a statement. Reach for the Uncivilised Ritual Joggers again for an ultra comfort combo or pair with a statement skirt for a cool contrast.

For an added pick me up we have a gorgeous selection of inspirational quote necklaces from Oswell and Rose in store (£10).
Or how about a print from Letterbox Lane (£10-£15) to remind you how fab you are…
We haven’t got all the answers (soz about the beach) but embrace the epic WSd offers to make savvy updates to your wardrobe and brighten those blues!
