WHAT THE EDITORS ARE GIFTING THIS YEAR
Christmas. As the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ approaches, our thoughts turn to friends, family and the gifts we’ve yet to get for the nearest and dearest in our lives.
Whatever their style, and whatever your budget, Aligne has planet-friendly present ideas that are sure to please come Christmas morning. From cosy quilted outerwear to the softest recycled cashmere, there’s something for everyone in our sustainable gift edit.
But don’t just take our word for it. We asked the style experts to reveal the presents that they’ll be picking this festive season…
“While returning to the office may be off the cards in 2021, it doesn’t mean your home sartorial choices have to suffer. Gift your loved ones with gorgeous tonal tailoring this Christmas. The Aislyn Wide Leg Trouser and Andrea Single Breasted Blazer (styled here with the Adele Knitted Tank) is the perfect combo for the stylish, and eco-conscious, among us.”

“I'd be thrilled to unwrap this puffer on Christmas Day! It's brilliant for layering underneath a coat on colder days, but also stands on its own with a cute collar underneath! It's important (now more than ever) to support smaller brands with strong sustainability principles, so when jumping on trends be conscious as to where you're shopping from!”

“Always on the hunt for a suit that I can throw on for my Zoom calls but is still extremely comfortable to wear around the house. I absolutely LOVE these trousers, they’re loose but flattering and I’ve also discovered they’re wrinkle free. You can also wear them with a turtleneck, for a more relaxed but smart look.”

“I have road-tested this midaxi and I can vouch it works with boots, with trainers, with a knit, with an oversized cardigan, with a long camel overcoat, with a cropped bomber, with a necklace, without a necklace. It’s a great Christmas shade of red, which you won’t be bored of when the festivities are over. And come summer, it will look fab with sandals and sunglasses.”
