Top Fashion Buys This Winter: Splurge or Save?

With Christmas just 38 days away (is it too early to countdown?), it's time to start saving for those presents. But just because you want to splurge on the family this year that doesn't mean your wardrobe has to suffer, or your shopping habits.

I have scoured the online shops for some of this winter's top fashion buys, providing a 'Splurge' option if you have the cash to spend, and a 'Save' option if you'd prefer a cheaper alternative and save your pennies for other Christmas buys.
