Winter is well on its way and it’s time to layer up! It’s that time of year to bring out your cosy knits, your shawls and scarves, your ribbed trousers and your blazers and jackets. Winter style enables you to play around with a number of items at once, as opposed to the summer where the fewer the items, the better to beat the heat. In winter you can layer up your button down with a cable knits sweater and shawl, wear a denim jacket over a sweater or just wear a comfy sweater with your skinny jeans.
While it may seem that you need a lot of items to create a winter look, we’re here to tell you otherwise. We’ve rounded up some key pieces that you should have in your wardrobe to mix and match with other items all season long, to create the perfect winter look.
A well-fitted pair of skinny jeans
Skinny jeans are perfect for winter because of their silhouette. They allow for a number of layers to be worn on top for warmth. For example, you can wear them tucked into your boots and a leather jacket or coat during the day time, or you can wear them with a pair of heels with a nice top and blazer at night. They serve multiple functionality and you can never go wrong with a pair of skinnies in your wardrobe.
A statement coat
Let’s be honest, no matter what you wear, your coat will always come on top so make sure your coat is an investment piece that will not just take you through the season, but will also last you a couple of years. It should also be a piece that reflects your personality and something that can be worn from day to night. If you’re investing in just one coat this year, then make sure it is a neutral colour or a colour that will go with the rest of your winter wardrobe. Alternatively, if you’re feeling brave, you can opt for a bold, bright coat to add a pop of colour to your look on those chilly winter nights.
A cable knit sweater
Nothing is as cozy as a cable knit sweater when winter arrives. A cup of cocoa in one hand and the sleeves of your cable knit sweater in the other. A chunky cable knit sweater can be layered up in multiple ways and can also be dressed up and down. For those long nights out, layer up with delicate jewellery or wear it over a button down shirt with the collar protruding from underneath. A cable knit sweater goes with just about everything including jeans, leather pants, midi skirts and printed trousers.
The blanket scarf
One of the most versatile winter accessories is the blanket scarf! It’s chic, it’s effortless and it wraps around your outfit just like the name suggests. There are also countless ways in which you can style this accessory. Drape it around your shoulders or wrap it around a number of times, or even wear it carelessly over one shoulder and throw it across to the other side. We think, the bigger the better! Blanket scarves come in a range of colours, prints and styles, so pick one that will take you all the way through the winter season.
