Was it just me, or was January the longest month of all time? I attempted dry January in every sense of the word; refrained from drinking alcohol, avoided the high street, made my lunches and managed to stop eating copious amounts of almond croissants. It was a month of banal vegetables.
However, February is finally here, which signals the beginning of a new sartorial season. Yes, it's still bitterly cold and the evenings are dark, but in the midst of all the miserableness, we all deserve something bright to hold onto.

Here's how to wear it well
That brightness is found in trawling through online high street stores in search of new gems, and here I have picked our favourites on offer this week. From Topshop to Warehouse, from coats to mules, I've got it covered for you.
As the sun isn't shining on us just yet, I have included classic blacks and muted tones, but there are also some sparks of colour. After all, what better way to count-down to warmer days than through our clothes?
