Our new season styles and colours are cut for curves and no mistake. Hot damn, there isn't a single piece I don't want!

Our wool mix separates are all machine washable on cool with no shrinkage. I'll say that louder for those of you at the back: MACHINE WASHABLE! (If this was instagram I'd be using the clapping emoji right now) The grey is a perfect midtone and will work with anything. Seriously, I've always avoided grey and now I can't get enough of it. 

Get your Crop On (Jacket, I mean)

First up for discussion is this brilliant Cropped Jacket. It's such a flattering fit, and really neat under the bust. It's the perfect thing for when you need an extra layer but you need to keep it smart. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm all about a cardigan, but sometimes it will dress down a look a little too much.

We should also talk about the incredible Culottes. Fully lined, the same pockets as the Handy Pocket Skirt and just SO DARNED COMFORTABLE I have no idea why you're still reading this sentence. Go put them in your shopping basket already!

We've tweaked the design of our incredible Flattering Fit JacketWe have lowered the bust point, rebuilt the front of the jacket and changed it to a two piece sleeve instead of a one piece sleeve- this gives you more ease of movement. We managed to do this and still keep a similar width of the sleeve for a neat silhouette. SO GOOD.

We also welcome back the Handy Pocket Skirt in the grey wool mix. This shape is an absolute staple and it is totally reasonable to have it in both colours. Totally!

The final jewel in the crown, for this part of the collection, is the new Button Back long sleeved top. It is a delicious plum toned berry colour, in a nice medium thickness crepe. There are sleeves, subtle squared pockets, a high neck (which works with all necklaces so beautifully), and then a covered button blouse back. It's so unusual and stylish, but also really discreet. The squared pockets lay nice and flat so it's easy to tuck into your, say, culottes (see what I did there?), but it also works beautifully untucked.

If you do wear it untucked (over cigarette pants or a pencil skirt would be spot on), then you'll want to use the included tie belt to help to cinch in the waist. This will help you feel like you're showcasing your curves without feeling boxy. Win! And yes, this is also machine washable. Fabulous AND practical? Sign me up!
