Autumn Winter Fashion with Deja Style
Summer is over and autumn is here, though it is not exactly the season of mist and mellow fruitfulness, more a case of heavy rain and driving winds. But, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining. We can, at last, embrace the new autumn/winter collection with its emphasis on warm knitwear, beautiful dresses and stunning coats. This is, of course, the season for layering – the addition of scarves, wraps and other accessories are not only perfect for keeping off the chill, but also have the added benefit of flattering the figure.
At the heart of this season’s outfits is knitwear and at Deja, there is no paucity of choice. We have knits in every shape and size – fun knits, classic knits and a few sparkling knits to take us through to Christmas. We have every conceivable colour too, as well as the classics – black, navy, grey and camel – we have bold statement colours – blistering orange, neon pink, vibrant greens and blues and brilliant reds.
Our long, lace-trimmed vests worn underneath give extra warmth as well as elongate the silhouette – Coordinate or contrast the choice is yours but we love that little pop of lace. Scarves are either warm and chunky – perfect over a coat, or we have skin-soft wool in a range of vibrant prints and colours. Our favourite though is the classic silk – they are light to wear but surprisingly warm too and they ooze style and class. Perfect for presents or as a luxurious treat.
Talking of presents, the dreaded C word is here – not COVID but Christmas and it is official Christmas is coming early this year. Reports of problems in the supply chains are forcing us to shop early to ensure we get what we need in time for the big day. And the big family Christmas is back, after we missed out last year due to the pandemic, we are due some indulgence.
We will be doing our usual Christmas boxes – full of sparkling accessories and little surprises – they start at £15 and can be tailored to meet your requirements and budget. Why not pair them with a gift voucher. Something beautiful to open on Christmas Day and then a bit of retail therapy in the New Year. Perfect!
Bestsellers this week are our padded gilets, which come in black, blue, grey and khaki. They add a touch of extra warmth and glamour to your winter outfits. Or for a more classic look go for our boiled wool coats. This season, they have a hood, deep patch pockets and a silver zip fastening.
For a super-smart look – how about these long coats with their waterfall collars. They drape beautifully, giving an elegant silhouette- colours are classic navy, black or camel – but our absolute favourite is this brilliant cherry red – perfect for brightening up a dull, winter’s day.
Don’t forget styling sessions are available throughout November and can be booked over the phone. If you can’t make it to the shop I am happy to do a virtual session on WhatsApp.
