The Fashion Audit: Jingle Jumpers, Twinkle Ts, Pull Up Your Stockings and Lulu’s lockets
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We love: Twinkle Ts
Statement jewels are a great way of dressing up a casual outfit during the festive season. London Fashion Week designers Tata Naka take the worry out of matching one to the other with a new line of multi-tasking T-shirts and jersey dresses.
TNTees, from £100, net-a-porter.com
We’re not sure about: Lulu’s lockets
Those with insomnia and cable TV will know the power of the relentless sales patter of presenters of home-shopping channels. A surprising member of those ranks is the singer Lulu, who has a rock’n’roll-inspired jewellery collection.
From £29, qvcuk.com
We’re buying: Pull your stockings up
Red and white is not the only acceptable colour scheme come Christmas, and these up-cycled stockings from design duo Clements Ribeiro are proof of that. Crafted from cashmere and wool, seven pairs are being auctioned through eBay for Oxfam.
Until 7 December, clementsribeiro.com
We can’t wait for: Jingle jumpers
Christmas knits languished on the wrong side of cool for years, but thanks to the hipsters who’ve brought them back are now essential festive fun. There’s only two weeks until Save The Children’s dedicated day, plenty of time to pick up one of Topman’s kitsch versions.

We’re clicking on: Into Cyberia
Today is the day when servers begin to melt. No, there’s not a new H&M designer collaboration, it’s Cyber Monday: time to spend the last pre-Christmas pay packet. Instead of hitting the high street, a host of apps, like TheOutnet.com’s, will ease the pain from the comfort of the sofa.
