Christmas may be right around the corner and the only thing you’re thinking about is ‘What on earth do I buy my mum/dad/wife/husband/sister/brother/grandma/grandad (okay, you get the point)?’, but don’t be leaving your own list to the last minute…
Like every month, the ridiculously stylish team (not to brag) at PAUSE has compiled a list of the gems that they’re praying are sitting under the tree on Christmas Day. From Acne Studios denim boots to a Justine Clenquet choker, get those that caught your eye added to your wishlist straight away and with any luck they might also be waiting for you on December 25th.

Best foot forward. Dries Van Noten just upgraded our pony love with its new clog style silhouette that elevates your shoe game in any moment.
Time to get cozy, fleece it up with this Entire Studios jacket made for any room temperature. Boldly structured in beige with tonal elbow patches. Let this fleece do the talking.
It’s scarf season and time to wrap up. Jacquemus has dropped an unseen gradient wool hand-dyed scarf that will have you serving moments all winter.

Biker boots are creeping back to the top of the trend list and I am here for it. Of course Acne studios totally delivered with their take on the classic silhouette with this denim adaptation, also available in tan and black, these are a timeless piece that will hold a space in your closet for years to come.
Another leather winter must have, if you’re going to invest in a piece of outerwear this winter, make sure it’s a good piece. A trench is most definitely a wardrobe essential and I love love love this version from NOID, from the structure, the tailoring to the quality and leather outer, this is a true showstopper, a classic number for years and years to come.

This SIADDS Atelier ring transcends mere adornment to become a wearable piece of art. One of my favourite jewellery pieces, this ring is only for a wearer who is unafraid to showcase their taste for avant-garde luxury – a must have.
The pinnacle of utilitarian chic, these ASKYURSELF Canvas Cargo Pants are cut to a relaxed silhouette making them an ideal choice for any fashion-forward individual who doesn’t sacrifice comfort for style.
This sneaker is a tactile feast. Equally at home in a minimalist wardrobe or as the understated hero of an eclectic ensemble, these Salomon’s are perfect for every winter wardrobe.

Summer might be well and truly gone but a Mule is always a staple in my wardrobe. This ugly, clunky Jil Sander style is the perfect one to see you through the winter when paired with tights and chunky socks for an extra layer of cosiness.
Cardigans are everywhere right now and are the perfect layering piece, whether that be thrown over a shirt or tee. I love the simplicity of this Acne Studios cardigan and the fact they have it in every colour of the rainbow means one for every mood.
AMAL - MUSIC EDITOR
This has been on my wishlist for moments now, and with the new colourways, what’s not to love? I feel as if this scarf has the ability to elevate any outfit with its functionality and style.
These are hard. Case closed. Need them in my size.

Chains AND spikes?! Count me in.
I know what you’re thinking, mesh in the winter?! All I’m saying is sometimes (always) a cold walk to the club is worth it in the long-run.
Contrary to what I said before, we all crave comfort in winter. Not only are these ridiculously roomy, they get more intriguing with every look.
