I’ll admit it; I didn’t visit Apricot much before now. I assumed it wasn’t for me and that it was perhaps for a mature customer, despite always seeing at least one in item in the window that caught my eye. If you’re the same, you might want to check out my discoveries and surprise yourself…
There’s a range of eveningwear, every day essentials, luxe knitwear and accessories including jewellery, hats and handbags. The overall feel is sophisticated but with a sense of fun, from butterly print sweaters and sequin evening tops to classy festive jumpers and touchable cosy capes.
I love the below rucksack, they’re bang on trend but also really practical. To save my shoulders, I often carry my macbook in one, making them ideal for life on the go.

What first struck me was the price versus the quality with gorgeous fabrics and intricate detailing across the store. The eveningwear, sparkles and festive jumpers are starting to creep in for party season but the designs have a sophisticated, more demure edge.
Keep a look out for their selection of Christmas jumpers too. They already have this adorable penguin one available in-store but you can expect cuddling polar bears and robins very soon. Their style for Christmas will leave you feeling and looking cosy but elegant.
I was highly impressed with the selection of winter warmers, from blanket wraps to capes and coats. They all look so snug and expensive but with greatly affordable price tags. This is definitely the place to pick up a luxe-looking coat for less than £40! Just take a look at this beautiful suede-look shearling coat for a mere £39 and Aztec cape for £29. Both items capture key looks for the season too and you’ll find newness in-store every week.
I know where I’ll be shopping my party outfit now. It’ll leave me with more money to spend on prosecco, I mean, Christmas presents.
