The CF Checklist: January

It’s time to plan your sartorial calendar, aided by your monthly dose of The CF Checklist.

January marks the start of the new calendar year, and whilst it’s easy to be sidetracked by the flurry of excellent sale buys, we’re looking ahead to investment pieces to cherish for the rest of the winter season: think statement knitwear and timeless coats.

If you’re trying to get back into the groove of a fitness regime, a new Anya Hindmarch gym bag and Reformation two-piece provide ample incentive. Alternatively, if you want to add a luxe edge to your WFH wardrobe, Prada’s shearling slippers make staying in all the more desirable.


Marcela London are the purveyors of the chicest coats that look far more expensive than their price tag would suggest. This oversized wool coat with a dramatic cinched waist belt will have you looking the part for the return to work, even if mentally you are still on the sofa grazing on Quality Street.


A chic knitted dress is perfect for this cool weather snap, with the maxi silhouette of this Warehouse iteration offering extra warmth. We are going ga-ga for this cool girl checkerboard print; pair this dress with a chunky pair of boots and it will take you seamlessly from AM to PM.


Trust Scandi-cool GANNI to create the must-have cardigan of the season. We can't wait to get our hands on it. With exaggerated balloon sleeves and a quirky sailor-inspired collar, we will be wearing this on repeat. Will we ever tire of big collar energy?


If you need a little extra convincing to make it back to the gym post-Christmas, Anya Hindmarch's chic tote will manifest the enthusiasm you can't quite muster. Large enough to pop in all your post-class beauty essentials we've never been more excited to hotfoot it to spin.



Pull yourself out of a fitness rut by adding a new sporty co-ord to your kit bag, preferably from Reformation’s Ref Active line. Made from performance-enhancing EcoMove fabric, you will feel perfectly supported, sculpted, and cinched, whether a sweaty HIIT class or slower Pilates session is on the menu. 


Yes please to these ultra-luxe Prada slippers: the perfect New Year treat if you want to add to your WFH repertoire. With a shearling lining and trim, our feet have never been so cosy nor looked so good. 


If you are looking to compile a discerning fine-jewellery collection in 2022, may we suggest you start with this playful ring from Sydney Evan. Yellow gold and diamondswith a looping script makes for a winning combination.


Off to Antigua, the Maldives, or Sri Lanka like most of my Instagram feed right now? Lucky you! Agua by Agua Bendita's tropical floral print swimsuits are the very definition of 'out of office' dressing and are sure to incite the envy of your followers.


A midi skirt is a versatile piece to carry you between seasons, and we are adding Lily And Lionel's pretty meadow flower hand-painted silk iteration straight into our shopping basket for a reminder that spring is around the corner. Wear it now with a chunky roll-neck knit and knee-length boots, and look forward to pairing it with a t-shirt and oversized blazer come March. This is a statement investment piece with serious cost-per-wear.
