The revered slip dress is not refined to warmer climes. Embrace fashion’s greatest styling trick and layer yours over a thin, fitted polo neck top when the temperatures plummet.

How to rework a roll neck jumper for the office: wear with high-waisted trousers to accentuate your waist and lengthen your body for a clean silhouette.

Sometimes comfort is key. Rather than heading straight for the tracksuit bottoms a la Vetements, go old school with straight leg jeans and a cosy turtleneck jumper and you’ll be snug as a bug in a rug.
