It's cold, drizzly and dark at 5pm so it's time to up the comfort factor with these must-have items for days indoors, including plenty of opportunities to #supportlocal.
Slouchy, soft and just the right amount of oversized, this Mohair-rich jumper ticks all the right boxes for loungewear, plus extra style points for the cool graphic print. Available from Amersham boutique Fabric.
Light it up
Cold, dark evenings call for candles – and lots of them. We love the cool industrial vibe of this concrete Fig Leaf & Vebena scent from quirky homewares store Feather & Nest in Didcot.
Treat your toes to a pair of these hand-dyed bed socks from Oxon business Thread Tales. Available in four colours, they’re made from 100% recycled cashmere, plus there’s the option to personalise with initials – a lovely touch for a luxe Christmas gift.
You can’t get much comfier than this cardigan/robe hybrid from The White Company – it’s basically a blanket with arms. Stylish and minimal design with dropped shoulders and deep pockets, it features a dash of luxurious alpaca wool for added warmth.
Is there anything more cosy than a deliciously fluffy rug? We think not. This one from Marlow-based Home Barn is made from lightweight Tibetan sheepskin and is ideal for throwing over armchairs to up the comfort factor.
Coffee, tea, hot chocolate (with lashings of marshmallows and cream, of course) – whatever your drink of choice, look damn stylish sipping it with this glazed stoneware mug, exclusive to Anthropologie.
Fluffy slippers are an A/W staple and this year we’re coveting this slip-on pair from Beaconsfield boutique Heidi & Hudson. Made from 100% Australian sheepskin, they’re super-soft, stylish and come in a range of pretty colours.
