It’s March the 109th and I’m still in joggers like the rest of the UK. I actually can’t bear the thought of putting my jeans back on and I just want to be comfy all. the. time.

A dilemma for many at the moment, I do want to look good when I do head out – but I’ve no idea what to wear!

So, I headed to Harvey Nichols. Home to three floors of the latest menswear, ladieswear and accessories collections alongside luxury beauty, fine food and wine all in one place.

This place is a one-stop shop for your style overhaul.

With all the measures in place to ensure a comfortable, safe and socially-distanced shopping experience, the guys over at Harvey Nics are offering a hidden gem up on their First Floor.

Whether you’re interested in how to shop more consciously, how to best suit your style and body shape or even just how to welcome some Autumn Winter basics into your wardrobe, their expert Personal Shopping team are available for guidance with this exclusive, entirely complimentary service.

This is your prime destination for the latest drops and the edit is nothing short of stunning.

Browse labels like Alexander Wang and Off-White, Valentino and Gucci. Grab a make-up bag update at Hourglass or a little skincare treat from The Ordinary… you can even catch a quick wash and blow at the James Bushell hair salon – if you’re feeling extra fancy!

With so much on offer, I find my new favourite way to shop is using their super helpful Personal Shoppers to do all the hard work for me! (how did I not know this service existed?!)

So you can spend less time wandering and more time sipping your glass of chilled Harvey Nichols Champagne in their private suite, whilst their expert stylists navigate the store and bring back your wish list.

Every little detail is considered including gift wrapping and home delivery, making it a truly relaxing experience from start to finish – you’re welcome!

After spending some time chatting with one of their Personal Shoppers, Joanne Jacobson, I learnt some top tips for styling up for this Autumn-Winter season.

Think layering and versatility. Comfortable, luxury loungewear, stylish knits, fresh colours, checked prints, leather trousers and the perfect little ankle boots.

Style your Acne hoody and Free People faux leather jeans with an Isabel Marant Étoile checked blazer, introduce a splash of autumn colour with a Balenciaga burgundy quilted bag. Consider versatile, forever pieces that can be worn again and again.

The service is accessible for everybody with no obligation to buy and makes for the perfect little afternoon out by yourself or with a pal.

For those unable to visit the store at the moment, the Personal Shopping service adapts to the ever-changing needs of their customers. Offering pre-bookable one-to-one appointments, virtual consultations and even arranging wardrobe drops to your home address – how’s that for customer service?!

And with Christmas approaching and more uncertain times ahead, the team can also assist with gifting ideas, festive hamper orders and corporate gifting to ensure you are organised and prepared (for work and home life) in plenty of time for a stress-free festive season.

If you’re after a total style overhaul, the perfect outfit for bottomless brunch or just a little winter wardrobe refresh – give this a try. And honestly, the team are WIZARDS (and they aren’t loyal to any one brand which means you receive a completely personalised service!)

I mean, I wasn’t sure if this was my kind of shopping, but when I found out there was no minimum spend or obligation to buy – why wouldn’t you? It’s the perfect socially distanced shopping experience, if you ask me!
