With snowdrops and daffodils opening their buds and mild winds whipping around us whilst decorations glitter on the tree and wreaths hang on front doors, the seasons are unquestionably mixed up this year.

We can but dream of wrapping up in sumptuous cashmere for the time being, so here at Tuttabankem, we are layering up for laid-back elegance. Whether you are at home preparing fro the big day, or out and about visiting friends and family, layers make for the perfect effortless look.

A chic swing jacket, such as our exotically printed cotton needlecord Talia design can be slipped over a silk shirt, or even a long sleeved tee and worn with denim or tailored trousers for the ultimate in simple sophistication.

An oversize scarf or shawl always adds finesse to an outfit, no matter what the occasion. This season, we have a carefully edited collection of richly patterned velvet shawls that will strike just the right note of casual glamour. Don’t be afraid to mix up patterns and clash prints,  creating a grown-up bohemian air and a style that is uniquely your own this Christmas and beyond.
