Winter is a season that demands both functionality and styling in our wardrobes. Key pieces that not only provide the necessary warmth but also offer endless styling opportunities.

Here’s a focus on winter staples.

The trench coat

When it comes to timeless style, the classic trench coat is a winner year-on-year! But it’s popularity doesn’t just come from it’s cool-weather versatility, it’s also lightweight enough to move through several seasons with you.

In it’s neutral form, it’s truly a timeless wardrobe staple, but you can also invest in an array of different shades to suit your taste and wardrobe. Here’s some style inspiration we love…

The chunky knit

Once winter well and truly kicks in, be sure to have a few cosy yarns on call for those really chilly days. While we love a subtle neutral shade to rug up in because they literally go with everything, you can substitute any of the below fashion-inspired ensembles with a knit in your favourite shade.

Knitwear provides the necessary layers to style over tops and shirts and under coats so you can navigate varying temperatures in Winter.

Wide-leg jeans

Combine comfort and style with wide-leg jeans. Either keep them chic and casual for daywear in a lighter wash, or choose an ink or deeper blue to elevate your outfit.

To elongate the lower body, opt for a mid to high-waist and wear them long. If you’re on the shorter side, shop around for cuts that aren’t too wide – there’s plenty of styles available to suit your shape.

The white shirt

Just like jeans, we believe it’s worth investing in multiple white shirts in varying shapes and fits. The over-sized shirt for instance offers a cool fashion edge and pairs perfectly layered under boxy blazers, coats, and beneath knits.

Or switch to a classic, fitted cut that gives off more corporate vibes and sits well with skirts and trousers. However you wear it, this is one piece you’ll have in your wardrobe for years.
