As nights draw in, the urge to curl up away from it all gets stronger. And yes, of course, you can do so in an old pair of M&S PJs – but today’s loungewear offering, with its cashmere blends and cocoon-like shapes, will do the job even better. Just add a mug of hot cocoa and a good book. With these simple shapes, look for delicious details: the star print on Chinti & Parker’s cashmere robe, the contrast cuffs on Duffy’s ribbed sweater, the pom poms dangling from the top of the Ugg socks, the soft supportive underband of Nui Ami’s camisole. Finally, in the absence of a genuine roaring hearth, may I suggest Birch & Brook’s Fireside candle to light your way to the perfect winter’s evening?
