Reader Treats Just For You!

All wrapped up

See in the new season in style wearing geometric scarves and wraps from Brighton's Gabrielle Vary.

The turn of the season means we want to wrap up a bit more – but before you reach for that heavy winter coat, opt instead for a stylish wrap or a light jacket with a chunky scarf. I love these head-turning geometric knits from Brighton designer-maker Gabrielle Vary, all available online.

This Gigi knitted lambswool scarf (above) looks fab with a colour-pop jacket, but would look just a good with a neutral cardi or jumper. Très chic – and super versatile. I’m loving the lemon and turquoise trim.

Or perhaps you prefer the orange and sky blue on the one below…

This blanket scarf (below) is a great jacket substitute for a coat, easy to shrug on and off on those in-betweeny days – and perfect for this time of year.

Or go for the smaller scarf option…


There are some great colour block options including in lighter scarves.

Or, double up with a combo like this below that mixes a monochrome scarf with a coloured blanket cardigan…


The blanket scarfs featured are £95, and the scarves £59 and the blanket cardigans are £189.

If, like me, you find wearing regular wool about as comfortable as sitting on a cactus you’ll be pleased to hear that Gabrielle and her team use super soft lambswool to create her designs on domestic knitting machines.

As well as scarves, wraps, cardigans and ponchos, Gabrielle also produces striking cushions, blankets and baby blankets, so you have a wide range of pressie options for when you’re not treating yourself. You can even have them sent gift wrapped.

In the meantime, you can chance your arm in our prize draw to win this lovely lilac scarf below!
