Christmas shopping has officially begun but what are you adding to your Wish List for Christmas 2019? If you're shopping for your mother, sister, girlfriend, wife or best friend we've got the perfect gift. Maybe you're looking to treat yourself or you've been asked what it is you want this year for Christmas and need to drop a few (less-than subtle!) hints.
For stylish women, we can't think of a better gift idea than a made to measure piece from the Distinctively Me collection. Our forever pieces make the perfect gift because each piece from our womenswear range is made exclusively for the individual. Made to order, our pieces are made with high quality fabric, in styles that suit all body shapes and sizes because they are made to fit perfectly.
Most women haven't experienced the pleasure of made to measure, mainly because they think it's too expensive or takes too long. We offer a range of affordable luxury pieces - from classic blazers and boucle jackets, to trousers, skirts, dresses and silk blouses.
Here, founder Jill White, picks out her favourite pieces for stylish women this Christmas.
Cool and chic and unbelievably easy to wear, the leather pencil skirt is a forever piece. For us, it's a total style staple. Made in nappa leather, which is super soft with a buttery texture, this is a style that will look great from desk ‘til dinner. In fact, we think that there's barely an occasion when you can't wear a leather skirt. At a price point that's the same as the high street (think Reiss and Whistles), it's the perfect gift for fashion lovers this Christmas.
Our made to measure pieces ensure the perfect fit and when it comes to skirts this is so important. It needs to skim the silhouette whilst enhancing a woman's shape. No bulging, no bagginess. Just perfect lines.
So when it comes to finding the perfect leather skirt, we think we've found it for you. The perfect size, the perfect hemline length, the perfect piece that will solve those 'what to wear?' dilemmas.
There is one dilemma though. What colour to choose from our range of over 70 leathers?
Leather skirt £285.
New for this season is our Balmain inspired boucle blazer. This is the perfect go-to jacket! Blazers are a staple of fashion editors the world over because they pull any outfit together and you can get so much wear out of them.
We love the versatility of the blazer, which is why they're such a big part of the Distinctively Me Made To Measure range. A blazer will take you seamlessly from smart to casual and will elevate the most basic looks. With jeans and a flat or as part of a partywear edit, we love it in winter-white. But because all of our pieces are made to order, the choice of fabric and colour is yours.
Cut in a double breasted profile with razor-sharp asymmetric lines, the military style gold buttons really give this blazer the wow-factor.
This is the perfect investment piece and makes for the perfect gift for style lovers because we guarantee this blazer will get plenty of wear and will look great for years to come - so cost per wear, it's worth every penny. Timeless style at its most stylish!
Boucle blazer £525.
When it comes to blouses, there's one piece that reigns supreme. The silk blouse is a perennial must-have that can be worn for pretty much any occasion. Which is why we've introduced our 100% pure silk blouse to the collection. A silk blouse will transition seamlessly from season to season and can be teamed with anything, always looking fabulous.
There's nothing more luxurious than the feel of a pure silk blouse. Yet so many ‘silk' blouses are largely a polyester mix. Our silk is pure and, like all of our fabrics, of the highest quality
The Distinctively Me silk blouse works beautifully tucked in or worn loose. And because it's made to order, we offer a choice of necklines to suit all body shapes. And when it comes to choosing the right colour, why limit your choice to the standard three or four colourways that you'll find on the high street? We have 66 different colours to choose from so you'll find the perfect shade for you.
Silk Blouse £200.
When it comes to gifting, it's so easy to get it wrong, especially when it comes to buying clothes for someone else. No matter how well you know the person, it's easy to buy the wrong size or you opt for the wrong colour. We've all done it! Which is why the Distinctively Me Gift Voucher is the ultimate gift for fashion lovers this year. What could be better than the experience of having a beautiful piece of clothing hand-made in beautiful fabric so that it fits flawlessly?
Just choose how much you want to spend and we'll deliver the voucher to your door. The recipient then has the pleasure of choosing their own piece in the fabric of their choice in a style and colour to suit them.
Vouchers start at £100 (increasing at £5 increments)
