Perhaps though, like mine, your winter wardrobe is in need of a revamp? Our Style issue features the latest trends which could influence your outfits throughout the coming months. A smattering of animal print here and a cowboy boot there will help to bring your look up to date. Or perhaps you prefer to buck the trends? If so, you’ll enjoy Clare Fowler’s article: When Style is more than the Latest Fashion. Turn to page 21 to see if her style icons have inspired you too. Chillier months also call for comforting food and our autumnal beetroot risotto on page 33 is bound to hit the spot; not only is it incredibly satisfying but its vibrant colour will lift your spirits on any grey days! And of course we bring you more fantastic prizes with a chance to win a Yankee Candle from Bedford’s newest store, The Home Fragrance Company, and a meal for two at The Fox and Hounds in Riseley.
