This week, we heard talk turn to Quality Street. They’re replacing the toffee ones apparently, but what really caught our attention wasn’t this controversial change, but rather the realisation that Quality Street equals Christmas. There are now two ways about it; winter is officially here. Even if the last few days of an Indian summer have left us thinking – hoping – that darker nights and cold mornings aren’t on the agenda. The truth is that we’re sort of excited to snuggle in new season knits, layer our A-line denim skirts over thick tights and throw on boxy furs that leave us feeling just a little bit like the jet-setting heir to an oil fortune.

In summer, we’re happy to throw on barely-there dresses and the denim shorts that have lasted us a lifetime. But winter, that calls for a little luxury. Something a little special to make those cold days worthwhile. Your usual knitted jumper just doesn’t cut it anymore. Now, we want silk and cashmere and wool, woven into one to create the most luxurious winter wear we’ve ever slipped over our shoulders. If we can combine ultra-luxe fabrics with statement style, then that is even better.

The Belstaff Karli Crew Neck Sweater is something of a holy grail in jumper terms. Deliciously textured, oh-so-soft, and with the kind of distinctive detail guaranteed to have eagle-eyed fashionistas stopping you in the streets. An ivory knit is a winter must have and this one is top of our AW16 shopping list. You know how we love the contrast of chunky knits and sleek leather, so the Belstaff Karli Crew Neck Sweater with your sleekest leather trousers and chunky black boots. That said, winter denim is always a good idea.
