Fashion for fighting off the chill

Winter is well on it’s way, so get ahead of Mother Nature and fill your wardrobe with the essentials. Even on the coldest morning, you’ll be ready to take on the day in style, so take a peek at our shopping list and start your new season preparation.

Grab your coat

Wintry days are the epitome of coat weather but with many different styles on offer, it’s hard to know what to go for. Quilted and down coats, like this machine washable one and this shorter design from Centigrade, are the perfect accompaniment to the coldest days, and are great for walks in the crisp morning air. Heading for a day of shopping? A chic gilet or faux leather biker jacket will keep the chills at bay, while avoiding overheating. The right coat can instantly elevate your favourite evening ensembles too, like this double-breasted number from Helene Berman or this faux fur coat from WULI:LUU by Gok Wan, which’ll look beautiful worn with a dress and heels for a dinner out.

Must-have knitwear

Whether you like bold designs or classic staples, knitwear is a style favourite when winter hits. Perfect for layering, this WynneLayers design is a timeless and versatile addition to your wardrobe, but if you want your knitwear to do the talking, this Attitudes by Renee cardigan will look great worn over a black top and jeans for a statement ensemble. If you prefer a jumper, Nina Leonard has really nailed bold knits with this wild design, while Ruth Langsford keeps things preppy with this super soft number.

Bedtime-ready

After a long day, there’s nothing better than getting into your comfies. Winter calls for an extensive collection of loungewear and nightwear, and let’s not forget a comfy pair of slippers! If you’ve got a day on the sofa planned, you can’t go wrong with Cuddl Duds. Try pairing this top with a pair of leggings for a cosy ensemble that’s perfect for movie night or a quick dash to the shops. Want to snuggle up under the duvet? Carole Hochman has a huge range of chic pyjamas and nightgowns that will be on hand for those cold winter nights, and you can keep your tootsies happy by with these chic slippers from Emu on hand too!

All about the accessories

Boots are often the saviour of the season when it comes to winter. From woolly linings to puddle-proof outers, they’re just the ticket for keeping your feet dry, warm and comfortable all day. 

Emu offer an array of water-resistant boots in chic designs, but the Gravelly boots are definitely a top pick. Perfect for whatever the weather throws at you, these boots are great worn with jeans or a skirt and tights. If you love a winter walk, Skechers have you covered. Equipped to take on mountains (or the school run on a windy day), these hiking boots will keep your feet snug, even on long days. To complete your look, why not add this hat and snood combo from Muk Luks for an extra-cosy touch?
