Dressing for winter and staying warm doesn’t mean you need to compromise on quality or style. Afew of our tips to be fashion-ready this winter include smart layering, investing in timeless pieces, savvy accessories and practical footwear, you can look great while braving the cold.


Smart layering is the secret weapon to staying warm and looking chic even on the coldest of winter days. For your base, good quality thermals, such as merino wool or fleece, then add your layers – a shirt or blouse, a knitted jumper or cardigan, a vest, a light blazer, and top off with a coat or waterproof jacket. For your layers, opt for materials such as velvet, wool and cashmere – Select from the colours on offer, pick some that compliment you and your personal style. Mastering the art of layering is choosing items that fit comfortably over each other.


The trench coat is a timeless piece of outerwear, and one that’s worth investing in as it will last you many years and can be used across all seasons. When you buy a trench, opt for a size up so you can wear multiple layers underneath. Some trench coats are very light but still give good protection from the cold, wind and rain. Some trenches can be slightly padded, offering extra warmth in place of a jacket. Leather jackets are another timeless and varied winter staple, offering trench-style, bomber, motorcycle, oversized or cropped. Thick puffer jackets or wool coasts are ideal in the depths of winter.

Nothing completes an outfit quite like accessories. This season, opt for woolly hats and oversized scarves to keep you warm and toasty, but also feeling fabulous – and just like layering, they can be added and removed as and when you need depending on the temperature.

Gloves are an underrated essential, whether they are leather or knitted, fingerless or mittens, thay should always be in your wardrobe. Stockings and tights are effective under dresses and skirts while keeping your legs warm, this way you are not limited to only jeans and trousers for the season.

In winter, boots are a staple and arguably the most effective way to keep your feet warm and dry as the temperature drops to single digits. Anything goes when it comes to boots, whether it’s biker, cowboy style, or a simple leather, and you can style them up (or down) around any outfit.

Functionality and warmth become a top priority, especially when footwear is involved, so invest in a quality pair of shoes for the season. Consider investing in a high-quality real leather boots, that are more durable and will last for several winter seasons to come. And remember, waterproofing your leather shoes will make them last even longer.
