Dear Santa, Here Are the 17 & Other Stories Pieces on My Dream Wish List

Once the days have gotten darker, the temperatures have fallen and the first Christmas songs have started playing on the radio, you know we’re officially in the throes of the festive period. If party season crept up on you, you might have missed just how much the high street has well and truly embraced the spirit of the season with everything from party-ready dresses to sparkling accessories. And let’s be honest: After a couple of unconventional Christmases, we deserve to go all out. As a shopping editor, I’ve been busy doing what I do best: scouring the shops to put together an edit of the pieces that I know you’ll love, and this season, & Other Stories’s Christmas edit has all of the yuletide inspo that you could possibly need.

Between statement accessories, luxurious beauty buys, fluffy knits and unforgettable dresses, there’s a lot to love from the high-street hero right now, and this year’s holiday shop is the ideal mix of opulent and cosy pieces, perfect for generously gifting your loved ones and, of course, yourself.

While I always come back to & Other Stories for its fashion-forward dresses (I still haven’t stopped thinking about that A.W.A.K.E collaboration), I also have a soft spot for a certain crystal-embellished knit, so my most difficult decision this Christmas is whether to ask for the red or black iteration, if not both. If you’re compiling a list of your own or looking for some gifting ideas, I’ve rounded up some of my favourite pieces from & Other Stories’s latest drop to help you find everything from your Christmas-party outfit to the perfect stocking filler. What’s the best part? There’s nothing over £175.

So if you’re wondering how a shopping editor really shops for Christmas, keep scrolling to see and shop my edit of the high street’s finest.

A puff-sleeved mini dress in festive scarlet? I’ll take it. 

Nothing says “eveningwear” like velvet dresses and pearl embellishments.

This dress deserves to be the centre of attention on any dance floor. 

Birthdays, dinner parties, New Year’s Eve or date night—whenever there’s an occasion that requires something a little more special, this is the dress for you. 

Turn even the simplest outfit into a statement with mirrored platforms. 

One of & Other Stories’s most iconic leather bags is back for another season, and this time in unmissable hot pink. 

The perfect desk-to-dinner boots that will go with everything in your wardrobe. 

Sorry, Coco Chanel, but I’m a firm believer in adding one more accessory before I leave the house. With earrings this good, it’s easy to see why.

Dread the thought of Christmas-jumper day? Consider this your far chicer but equally festive nod to the season. 

Just add jeans, chunky loafers and a trench coat, and you’ve got yourself an easy outfit worth repeating. 

It’s impossible not to feel a little bit happier in a cosy, twinkling jumper. 

It’s cold out there—your first defence against the bitter winds is a sturdy wool coat, and your second is an elegant, oversized blanket scarf. 

You can’t go wrong with & Other Stories’s Perle de Coco fragrance. It’s an all-around crowd-pleaser.

This is the prettiest lingerie at an impossibly good high-street price. 

Your best intentions might be gifting, but this is a piece you’ll want to hold onto for yourself. 

Beauty fans will love the brand’s gift-set kits. They include the best-selling hand creams, scrubs and washes in woody Arabesque, juicy Sicilian, deep and complex Sardonyx Fire and, of course, Perle de Coco.

After a busy party season, unwind in soft cotton pjs in beautiful blush. You’ve earned it.
