And just like that, we are into July and rugging up for the middle of winter. There is a loveliness to the cooler months, when the crisp, cool air hits outside and the warm, cosy atmosphere, inside, provides contentment and security. From intimate gatherings with friends and family to nourishing meals and warm clothing, winter encourages us to recognise our favourite things and embrace the comfort they bring.
Below you will find five favourites for the month of July and the reasons why we love them. Freshly picked by our Jipsi Cartel team, these luxurious and cheerful pieces are a mood boosting collection of tactile materials and happy hues.
1. CANDY STRIPES
Winter is often renowned for its prominence of dark colours in fashion. Not this season! Candy stripes and colour pops are gracing our store this winter, adding a hint of brightness and unique texture and detail to your winter wardrobe. We are just loving garments like the Ruby Knit by Little Lies, where joyful colour combinations meet soft and cosy fabrications to create a playful yet elegant vibe.

2. COLOURFUL GEMS
To step into the world of semi precious gemstones is to embark on a journey of discovery. While crystal types share colours and properties, the beauty of these gems is that no two are exactly the same. When featured in fine jewellery, these vivid colours create unique pieces that are distinctive and special. A definite current favourite and an exeptional keepsake or gift.

3. CONTRASTING PIPING & STRAPS
If we had to choose one item in our store that repeatedly draws the attention of customers, cross body bags with detachable and interchangeable straps would be hot contenders. We are currently loving the contrasting piping detail and multiple strap options of the Ruby and Leah cross body dual tone bags from Zjoosh. This gorgeous range perfectly combines functionality and fun, creating statement bags that quickly become favourites.

4. KNIT PANTS
The epitome of comfort meets style...it's a heavenly match when the warmth and comfortable dependability of lounge wear is coupled with luxurious and fashion forward winter knitwear. This season, we are seeing variation in knit weight and composition with both woolly warm and slightly lighter cotton/linen blend knits making an appearance. The natural oatmeal, coffee and green colour ways only entice us further and the unmatched comfort and effortless pull on design seal the deal.
5. UNIQUE DETAILS
We will forever fall in love with unique details and elements that create a point of difference to your clothing. Pictured below, the gorgeous attributes of the Nico Shirt have captured our attention. The combination of washed denim, delicate lace accents and subtle frill and frayed edging creates a loveable boho vintage charm, making this piece individual, interesting and irresistible.
