With Christmas just around the corner, you’ll be wondering a) what to get your friends and family and b) how to look as fabulous as you possibly can. It’s true, we all like to look and feel great (especially over Christmas). Whilst your insides are feeling extremely jolly from one too many mince pies, your outside should be reflective of this cheery demeanour. Well, if you’re local Hull folk like myself, then you needn’t go too far. You can find what you’re looking for at North Point.
From New Look to BonMarche, there are a range of fashion items to suit all budgets. Here are my top picks from this season that you can find in store.
New Look is always one for the latest trends, and the North Point Store is no exception. If you’re lusting for leopard print or looking for that very merry holly red, they have it in store. Best of all, there’s a huge sale on at the moment, some items were only £4!
Leopard Print Skater Style Dress: £22.99
The fit and flare dress is always handy to have in your wardrobe. Wear this Christmas day and thank me for the extra space you’ll have for Christmas pudding.
Red Boots: £20.99
It’ll be a holly jolly Christmas if you choose to match to Santa. These boots are the perfect height and in a suede material. On point for this season. Pair them with some skinny jeans and a Christmas jumper (see later in post).
Checked Trousers: £22.99
Every year the checked trend comes back just in time for the colder months. Pair these with a black or white roll neck and you’ve got the cosiest smart and stylish outfit.
For my fellow plus sized gals there is a big Yours Clothing store. It’s a sea of red and black clothing racks and the moment with some gorgeous hints of purple.
I picked out two items in here, one if you’re going for glam this year and another more quirky/fun vibe.
Sparkly Top: £23.99
This sparkly top would be perfect for any work Christmas party or dinner. Team it with some black trousers and a bold red lip.
Christmas tee: £14.99
I had to didn’t i?! Everyone is thinking about Christmas jumpers, so here’s a corker of a Christmas tee. I’ll be wearing this just to get even more into the spirit curled up watching Netflix films on the sofa.
You Know Who’s
Sequin Top: £6
I kid you not that I almost squealed when I saw what was on offer this week. This
River Island You Know Who’s top is only £6 (RRP £40) Who doesn’t wanna get sequinned at that cost? Team these with some black jeggings or trousers.
Baby Fur Suit: £6
I have paid up to £30 for this fur suits before for my boy, and it’s ridiculous when you could pick one up for just over a fiver.
Shoulda called this section the three 6’s, so many good items for £6. This Luxury scarf could make a perfect Christmas gift if you’re wanting to get someone something very festive.
If you’ve ever doubted being able to pick up fashionable goods in Bonmarche then you need to revisit. They have some very on trend, classic pieces that will last more than one ‘on point’ trend.
Knit Jumper: £15
Because Monochrome never goes out of fashion. This timeless fine knit jumper is just the piece I’ve been looking for to wear with coloured skirts and trousers.
Tartan Skirt: £25
This classic A-Line skirt is available in two colour ways and would be perfect with a bodysuit or statement tee.
Who doesn’t want festive pjs? These are on offer buy one, get one half price so go go go!
Christmas Jumper: £25
This jumper will have you feeling like a sassy polar bear as you strut into Christmas Jumper day. It’s a bit more of a classic look on the season and I’m all for it.
