Oh to be a millionaire. Instead of spending the next six weeks (minimum) wrapped up in well-worn winter woolies and scurrying around in the rain you could simply scoop up a selection of the resort collections and make for sunnier climbs. Unfortunately for those of us without a nine figure salary or an oil tycoon Daddy, there is no month more sartorially frustrating than January. Every fash mag is bursting with Spring/Summer delights which the combination of endless sale rails and sub-zero temperatures leave us unable test drive for at least another month. Yep, for those of us who can’t afford to snap up the Chanel Cruise collection and jet off to St Barths, the dismal post-Christmas/pre-Spring period is one with few redeeming features… or at least it was, until now.

This season heralds the release of Whistles’ first full resort collection which has arrived not a second too soon. Featuring zesty brights, spring stripes and immaculate tailoring, this pre-Spring fare is a much more wearable, not to mention affordable, alternative to Karl Lagerfeld’s ultra glamourous offerings. So if the novelty of your Christmas jumper has long since worn off I’d highly recommend skipping the sales and investing in these between-season treats, guaranteed to put a spring in your step or at the very least, your wardrobe.
