This year’s F&F exclusively at Tesco Christmas campaign might be the best yet

When it comes to sparkly party season, there is an inherent desire to splash out on new outfits for every diary entry. And when there’s a new party every other week (or every other day, in many cases) looking great and feeling confident can come with a concerning price tag. It’s the season, after all, of red turtlenecks, velvet hair ribbons, glamorous feather accents, over-the-top chandelier earrings, sequins galore, and necklaces that can very easily be mistaken as Christmas tree accoutrements.

Looking and feeling the part without over-spending is achievable, and the F&F exclusively at Tesco collection is a testament to that (it’s called having your cake AND eating it). From classic camel coats and checked separates that work for the office to silky tops and party-ready heels, there are few choice destinations across the supermarket spectrum that have actually impressed quite like the F&F range.

When we think of high-street it’s easy to jump straight to Zara, Asos and Mango, but supermarket fashion has certainly come a long way and that’s because of F&F’s carefully curated edit. One cannot simply walk into a local supermarket, grab anything off the rails and pray for success, but with F&F exclusively at Tesco, you can.

The convenience of buying your party rigout at the same time as picking your Brussel sprouts can’t be denied, and neither can the desirability. With floral velvet jumpsuits (like the one below), sequins two-pieces, glitter wrap dresses, chic ankle boots and glamorous outerwear, this year’s Christmas collection reflects trends seen on the AW18 catwalks. It feels contemporary and grown-up as well as being party-ready, with an overall authentic Christmas ‘feel’ to it (without being too in-your-face-with-gold-glitter).

What’s most noticeable about this year’s collection is the diversity of pieces available, which has massive pulling power for women who like to feel cosy and snug, or those who prefer to embrace the elements and go bare-legged. It has an authority and doesn’t feel how we think supermarket fashion should feel. It’s elegant and feels exclusive.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to have your Christmas cake and eat it ALL. To launch F&F’s new winter collection, F&F are hosting a Great Gatsby Fashion Extravaganza. Be transported to the roaring 20s filled with all the Glitz and Glamour of Gatsby’s Mansion. Join F&F for an evening of free cocktails, canapés and live music at the Stella Theatre followed by a private screening of the movie. Click here for a chance to get your pair.

Here is our top selection of Christmas looks straight from Tesco’s F&F Christmas collection.
