Say hello to Holly’s Must-Haves, the denim edit. The TV star, fashion favourite and Mama to three, has hand-picked her favourite pieces from the latest denim collection at M&S, including some of her most-loved shapes and styles – think the denim dress, the button-through skirt and, of course, the classic skinny jean.

“This edit has been really fun to pull together. I’ve always loved the simplicity of a denim dress and I live in high-waisted skinny jeans at the weekend. These pieces are really versatile and super stylish too”

THE Denim Midi Shirt Dress – £49.50

This denim shirt dress is as comfortable as it is stylish. Sitting at a midi length, the long sleeve dress features a smart belt detail that’s perfect for adding a touch of shaping at the waist, while statement buttons and two front pockets offer an extra splash of interest.
Holly says:“This denim dress is so versatile. Try yours with a simple ankle boot for a classic look that will see you through season after season.”

THE UTILITY JUMPSUIT – £55.00

Slip into something fabulous with this stunning long-sleeved jumpsuit. Designed to flatter, sleek details like a collared neck, metallic zipped chest pockets and patch pockets at the waist make this a prime example of utilitarian chic. A versatile piece, wear zipped up for a neat finish or half open for layered looks – or customise the silhouette by rolling the legs and arms up for a cropped finish. This pure cotton jumpsuit is made from sustainably sourced cotton, for a fashion statement that offers supreme style and comfort.

Holly says: “This boiler suit is so on-trend for the season ahead and gives you a great silhouette. What’s not to love?”

BRAND IN FOCUS | Whistles.

Screen Shot 2013-09-17 at 16.59.44

As it’s London Fashion Week this week, I’ve been really drawn to what’s actually going on, right now, on the high street. One of the first places I always turn to is John Lewis. I’m a little bit of a John Lewis mega fan…  But that’s just because I always get the best service there; as well as the best selection from all of the designers and brands they kindly house under one roof!

This week, I’ve had a good rummage through one of my fave British High Street brands, Whistles. As the weather is absolutely abysmal, I thought I’d try and brighten your afternoon with my edit of Whistles treats that are available in store and online at JohnLewis.com!

———————————————————————————————————————————

000617542

#1 – Whistles Katlin Heart Blouse, £125.00
WHISTLES SAY:  Crafted from luxurious silk, the Katlin Blouse from Whistles is a playfully lux addition to your new season wardrobe.
MM SAYS: Got to start off with this heart print shirt, reminiscent of Burberry’s own heart blouse that has taken celebritydom by storm. I actually prefer this Whistles one however! It’s got more going on, more interesting, lovely colourway. Tucked into skirts and trousers – or even jeans, this makes the perfect addition to your trans-seasonal wardrobe.

000395409
#2 – Whistles Lula Tailored Trousers, £110.00
WHISTLES SAY:  These smart tailored trousers from Whistles are the perfect style for summer.
MM SAYS: I’d have to disagree with Whistles here, I think these smart tailored trousers are a perfect style all year round! Love the cropped length and side-slit detailing.

000623619
#3Whistles Blake Dress, £135.00.
WHISTLES SAY: Chic and directional; this elegant shift dress from Whistles offers a round neck, short sleeves and a flattering waistband for feminine appeal.
MM SAYS: I’m really enjoying jewelled tones at the minute – think it’s that shift into Autumn and Winter. I love this emerald green dress. The shape is beautiful, will give you wonderful definition and silhouette.

000467448
#4Whistles Kir Royale Ankle Boots, £150.00.
WHISTLES SAY: A smart pair of round-toe ankle boots that are a perfect heel height to wear throughout the day and into the night. Versatile enough to be worn with either skinny jeans or a dress.
MM SAYS: I love these boots! Much like the infamous ‘Pistol Boot’ from ACNE, these boots look really comfortable – yet fashion-conscious at the same time. I’d team these boots with midi skirts and dresses, jeans and smart tailoring. Great versatile footwear style for your Winter wardrobe!


000421670alt2
#5 Whistles Cora Exposed Seam Cardigan, £165.00.
WHISTLES SAY: This luxe cashmere cardigan from Whistles has a relaxed open neckline with a minimalist shape, raw exposed seams and two draping side pockets – ideal for layering.
MM SAYS: Don’t you just want to cosy up in this cashmere beauty? Again, the perfect piece for your wardrobe; perfect for smart or casual, plus great for layering on those chilly days!

000623612alt1
#6Whistles Long Sleeve Sculptured Dress, £110.00.
WHISTLES SAY: Update your wardrobe with this contemporary, chic style from Whistles. It has an on-trend midi length, side panelling and a simple straight shape, it’s feminine and functional.
MM SAYS: POW! Check this amazing dress out for a pop of vibrance in your life. I just LOVE this dress (I was saving the best till last). Great colour, again, for all year round. Definitely put a smile on my face on this absolutely miserable September afternoon that’s for sure! I love the length of this dress; as well as the sleeve length. It would certainly hide a multitude of sins when you’re not feeling your best. I think it looks REALLY expensive. It’s worth the pricetag this one!

Hope you enjoyed my picks from Whistles. Don’t forget you can shop Whistles online at JohnLewis.com – they offer FREE delivery for all order’s over £5o too. Bonus round!
