If you usually covet bold and edgy style, then there’s no one better to get style tips from than House of Holland designer Henry Holland. The fashion line is notoriously brightly-coloured and inspired by street, hip-hop style, while being super feminine and appropriate for various settings. Holland shares with Real Style his favourite looks for the holidays through to the spring.
Real Style: If a woman had to reinvent her wardrobe using only one transitional piece from your collection, what would it by and why?
Henry Holland:A great jacket, I love outerwear, in the UK it’s all people see because our weather is so crap.
RS: What are your holiday fashion must-haves and why?
HH: Hair dryer and hair wax. I don’t care what I’m wearing, if my hair is not done I feel undressed.
RS: What are your favourite holiday accessories?
HH: Sunglasses! I think sunglasses are probably the best accessory on holiday. Firstly you need them but they also are a great way to accessories an outfit in places there aren’t many other options.
RS: If someone could only buy one piece from your collection for a holiday gift, what would it be and why?
HH: Sunglasses are a great gift. They can fit in a stocking and can help with all the New Year hangovers!
RS: What is on your holiday wish list?
HH:A puppy. Same every year. Still not managed it yet though!

RS: What are the three spring essentials every woman needs to invest in?
HH:White – anything white. Trainers are still a strong trend. And backpacks: I’m loving that girls are getting on board with my fave.
RS: What is your favourite spring beauty trend you saw coming down the runways?
HH:Dewy faces: I think it’s a much more modern look than matte, matte, matte.
