Owner of the Something Extra boutique in Esher, Sarah Hunt shares her top style tips for this season

Something Extra, 12-16, Church Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 8QS. Tel: 01372 464455

What would you say are the key trends for this season?
The basic silhouette this season is neat and tailored with a softly shaped shoulder line. The key accents are animal prints and metallic trims, which can be as subtle or extreme as you dare. Luxury yarns and fabrics like cashmere and silk in primary colours are also being worn as rich highlights to set off a neutral palette. Here, we specialise in ensuring woman from size 1224 can always find great, fashionable and flattering clothes.

Which do you think will be your best-selling item this month?
The Anna Scholz richly-printed silk tunics are very popular. They are so glamorous and extremely flattering.

What are your three hottest brands/labels in the store?
Its hard to pick just three however, Baslers designer collection, MYBC, is great for fabulous tailoring; NYD jeans because they fit and flatter everyone; and Yoek for individual style and statement pieces.

Is there a particular celebritys style you admire and why?
There are two that stand out for me: Nigella Lawson and Kirstie Allsopp. Both are curvaceous and confident and dress with great individual style.

What would you say is your best buy at the moment?
I have just found these amazing scarves, which are handwoven in wool and silk. They are very reasonably priced, starting at only 39, and bring trend and glamour to any outfit.

Is there anything you would recommend for the guys?
They cant go wrong with the scarves as a perfect Christmas present!

If someone was going to buy one key item for this season, what should it be?
Our Faber long-line knitted jackets are so versatile and are very on trend worn either open or belted, over dresses, pencil skirts or NYD jeans.

Is there anyone in Surrey whose style you particularly admire?
I see a lot of stylish women out and about in Surrey. I always particularly admire my friend Jo who is great at updating her look with a few carefully chosen key pieces.

In the competitive fashion industry, what do you think are the ingredients for success?
We love fashion and we love people and enjoy bringing the two together. Success to me and my team is measured by the delight of our clients who return season after season.

What would be your top tip for people visiting your store?
We have our own free parking behind the shop and offer a personal styling and alteration service.
