You may remember a while back I posted about the Very Autumn/Winter collections here. Well, now there have been some gorgeous mid season additions to the collections, so I thought I would show you some of my favourite pieces from the Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby ranges.
First up is the Fearne Cotton collection. I loved the last range, and for me this is even better. I love Fearne’s style anyway, and I think it translates really well into this collection. I know Fearne has been spotted wearing her own pieces in the past, which shows these are exactly the kind of things she likes to wear. I love the glamourous dresses in this range, each with a quirky twist, such as the dipped hems, or the sequin detailing, each perfect for a Christmas party or special occasion. I also love the tuxedo jacket. Perfect with a bouse, skinny jeans and heels for an androgynous feel.

Drape Back Mesh Dress – £59
Fishtail Sequin Dress – £79
Now onto the Holly Willoughby range. Again, this collection oozes Holly and every piece is typical of her own personal style. This range has more colour than Fearne’s and has a more mature feel to it. It definitely has a ‘yummy mummy’ sense to it and I could see her wearing any of these dresses on television. There are some pieces that have a nod to Fearne’s black, glamourous dresses, what with the studs and sequin detail, but these have a much more girly feel and are more subtle and grown up. I love the addition of the Autumnal floral prints that could easily be dressed down for daytime wear.

Studded Pencil Dress – £65
Printed Ruffle Tea Dress – £55
I love both collections, but as before I think Fearne’s has the edge, purely because I would wear more of her pieces than I would Holly’s. I’m even contemplating buying the Tuxedo Jacket to wear over floral dress and tights, or high waisted blue jeans and pretty blouses for a clash of masculine and feminine. I’d roll the sleeves up for a more relaxed look and throw it on instead of a coat.
What are your favourite pieces from the new collections? Whose range do you prefer?
