Winter fashion doesn’t have to be drab, in fact, quite the opposite, actually! Rugging up during colder seasons can get tiresome quickly, but all you really need is a little fashionable inspiration to make you excited to get dressed in the morning. If you’re really dreading the cold and you just don’t know how you’re going to arm yourself for the chill, not to worry! Follow these top tips for flawlessly fashionable winter dressing that will keep you chic and stylish all season long…
Lean into layers
Layering is such an essential part of winter dressing, so you’ll have to get comfortable with draping on a few materials once the chill starts to set in. Thin, close-knit pieces that aren’t itchy are perfect for layering – cashmere is the ideal fabric if you want to be seriously warm and stylish. Layer up tee shirts, turtlenecks, oversized sweaters, tights, dresses and skirts. The key to doing layering tastefully is to stay within a neutral colour palette and to only opt for thin weight layers.
Cosy, chunky knits
A roomy, chunky knit jumper is just the epitome of winter chic! You can dress this piece in so many ways, and once you get the styling down there’s no way you won’t be feeling the very definition of fashionable in the cold. Select a classic creamy hued cable knit jumper in a crew neck cut for ultimate wearability. Layer over sheer black tights, a mini skirt and knee-high boots for an effortlessly stylish look. Need more protection? Twill or wool wide-leg trousers, a turtleneck and a chunky knit jumper is a match made in heaven! Throw on a beanie or a beret for a touch of French cool. If you’re more of the eclectic, creative type, hunt for a jumper in a bright pop of pink, orange or green for an incredible wardrobe addition.
When in doubt, look for leather
Leather is such a core aspect of cold-weather dressing! You can’t go wrong with it, it’s warming, protective and waterproof, as well as gorgeous to look at and beautifully long-lasting. Whether it’s for a pair of ankle boots, knee-high boots, a buttery jacket, brogues or a sophisticated mini skirt, you absolutely cannot put a foot a wrong. Your pieces will wear amazingly for many winter seasons to come and integrate perfectly with all your mohair, alpaca, cashmere, denim and cotton.
Invest in your outerwear
Outerwear is a hugely important aspect of winter styling, and in order to secure something that you love and keep season after season, you’ll need to do some investing. Women’s designer jackets are great to explore, a jacket is a little more versatile than a big coat and you can use it during early spring or autumn as well as in winter. Shop for something statement that really reflects your personal style! If you’re a bit of an 80s maximalist, look for faux fur and fun prints, maybe you’re more minimal? A sleek leather jacket, neutral structured peacoat or just a simple workman’s style jacket will suit you perfectly. You can even grab yourself a sparkling evening jacket to bring some glitz and glamour to your winter evening wear! By shopping within your personal style and being somewhat bold, your coat will do so much more for you than just keeping you warm.
