Now that we’ve all well and truly embraced the return of our autumn/winter wardrobes, you may be looking to update yours with a few key pieces. For staple garments, that are great quality and you’ll be wearing for seasons to come, NEXT’s latest collaboration with Rochelle Humes has everything you need.
This is the broadcaster, entrepreneur and author’s first collaboration with the fashion retailer and it encompasses all the essentials you need to build the perfect capsule wardrobe at this time of year.
The collection features a selection of coats, chic knitted dresses ideal for heading back into the office in style, winter ready boots as well as party dresses which are always needed as we approach the end of the year!
Speaking about the collab Rochelle, who is known for her laid-back and classic style, said; “I’m super excited to introduce you to my first NEXT series! Everything is so me – my style is so versatile and for those who know me will be aware that I am a huge fan of neutral tones! Which is really reflected in everything I have selected!”
With over 20 pieces in the collection, there are lots of ways to seamlessly add them into you winter wardrobe. Perhaps you’re on the hunt for a knitted dress that will keep you cosy on your morning commute, or maybe you need some timeless knits to pair with jeans for winter weekends. There’s something for everyone too as the entire collection is available in sizes 6-22.
For gorgeous basics you’ll wear year on year Rochelle shared how the best place to start is with a pair of failsafe denims, like the ones in her collection, that make you look and feel good; “Every girl needs a good pair of jeans in her wardrobe! For me, I would say they are probably the hardest working piece of clothing I own!”
Of course, a gorgeous coat is the finishing touch to any outfit once we enter the colder months of the year and the collection provides so many options whatever your style. From neutral trench coats, to shearling jackets to a leather biker, Rochelle’s collection covers all the classic mainstays you’ll want to wrap up in this season.
“A neutral coat is a necessity this time of year, it goes with everything! Evening or daytime, chuck it on and you just feel as though your look is put together.”
If it’s something a little cosier you’re after, you can’t go wrong with the much-loved knitwear at NEXT. For a slightly dressier spin on your average jumper, Rochelle’s nod to knitwear in this collection is fab jumper dress! Ideal for throwing on with tights and boots when heading into the office, or even with leggings and runners for a more relaxed weekend look.
Rochelle, loves hers for ease as you can be comfortable and still look chic; “ A jumper dress is such an easy wearing outfit, just throw it on and go! No overthinking it – it’s just done and you’ll look great!”
To pair with that jumper dress, you’ll need some boots of course! NEXT are well known for their excellent shoe selection, and in collaborating with Rochelle this collection has everything from flat knee highs to chunky boots. As a mother-of-three with a bust work life, comfort is key for Rochelle, so it was vital when it came to this collaboration that the boot collection reflected the lifestyle of busy women who want to look good, feel great and do so in both style and comfort!
Like most women, Rochelle shared how she lives in her boots at this time of year, as she’s constantly on the go; “A black boot becomes uniform for me at this time of year – I wear them with everything! A dress, skirt, jeans – they just finish off a look!”
Finally, what everyone needs in their wardrobe as we approach December is a fab party dress. With Christmas on the horizon, events and parties are back on and who doesn’t need the perfect LBD for the festive season? Rochelle wanted to include a dress that you could easily transition from day to night, with boots and tights for the day and then killer heels and an oversized biker jacket for evening wear.
“I absolutely love the sleek silk dress that I have included in my series – it’s just versatile and one which will suit everyone! I have paired it with the oversized biker which automatically toughens up the look!!”
