Christmas dressing for the most means rotating roughly three outfits: something sparkly (going out), a gravy stained jumper (staying in) and a questionable onesie (being hungover).

Natalie Joos and Kate Moss have been seen sporting coloured fur this December. Try a Prada-eque coloured stole over a million hoodies and ripped jeans with cutesy Mary-Jane’s or make like a sugar puff in a bright fluffy coat.
Scrunchies (on your wrist)
Cara Delevingne’s MSC Scrunchie promo video with Clara Paget and Suki Waterhouse was the cherry on the hype cake:

Available from the MUA Make-up Academy from January, fuzzy micro-fibres are added to wet nails and left to dry. Colours include Fluffy and Booboo fluff. A fuzzy thumbs up to 2013.
