It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to summer, but it’s never bad fashion-wise. My favourite time of year is now, when I can dust off my trusty ankle boots and begin to add layers to my outfits. This provides many more options when I’m putting a look together.
The end of September has certainly heralded the start of autumn. But, of course, fashion is always ahead of the game and this week sees the launch of the first new styles for QVC Winter! It doesn’t mean we’re expecting snow next week, but the time is ripe to start planning for the chilly days to come.
On Wednesday and Thursday we will be showcasing the best and latest of your favourite fashion, accessory and jewellery brands with our minds on keeping cosy. It’s our first Winter Fashion event of this season.
The best news is that everything – clothes, shoes, jewellery, boots and bags – comes with a reduced £1.95 p&p. There will be lots of special prices and plenty of new styles to enjoy.
At 9am on Wednesday and Thursday I will be bringing you a New Season Fashion show, which will feature almost exclusively new pieces and also the Today’s Special Value, including the All Weather mid-length leather Emu boot.
We should organise a fanfare for Thursday, as it will be the very first TSV from a brand new range we are launching designed by fashion guru Gok Wan, especially for QVC.
Gok has been a lover of fashion forever and he’s amazing at understanding how important body confidence is in helping to get ‘style’ right. His vision was to create a group of modern style staples that will work for all women, for every occasion.
He said: “I’ve focused on easy-to-wear clothing in flattering shapes, designed to be styled together on pieces already in your wardrobe. I’m all about clothes that work for you and I think there’s something for everybody, regardless of height, size or shape.”
Gok has named the range WULI:LUU – one of my first questions will be to ask him what that stands for!
Gok will be with Catherine Huntley at 9pm on Wednesday evening to launch the range and the TSV, which is a stunning pair of slim leg washable faux suede trousers, in petite (181673) or regular (181674) length. They have a side zip and stylish stitching detail on the front, plus zips at the ankles to help create different looks with a variety of footwear.
The fabric is soft and supple and has a nap just like real suede. I’ve included a photo of me wearing them here, as well as some close-ups of the detail. Choose from the tan or chocolate colours I’ve featured, or red, olive green or classic black. I love all of them!
One of my favourite pieces from Gok’s collection is a beautifully cut check blazer. There is also a lovely pencil skirt and blouson top in a matching animal print, one in a small scale and one larger scale. I hope you find plenty to love, too!
Another example of the sort of offers we will be bringing you is this gorgeous faux fur jacket from Rino & Pelle, appearing in my New Fashion Show at 9am on Wednesday.
Reduced in price from £99 to £81, with Easy Pay available and the postage reduced from around £6 to £1.95, now is the right time to order this and snuggle into the softest of faux fur fabrics.
It will certainly mean everyone wants to give you a hug and a cuddle. It’s so lovely to wear, you’ll be wishing for cold weather!
