This really is for my Northern Hemisphere friends but the principle can be applied everywhere around the world of course.
I’m doing one for the colder climates right now because whilst we all need a pick me up in Jan/Feb no matter where we live, the one thing I can say is that I never used to get as sick of my outfits as I did living in London by January. Coats, jeans and trainers or boots, day in and day out. A good idea is to layer up different weight jackets and gillet’s to not only give your heavy winter coats a break but to make things a little more interesting. I have chosen a few items as an example of what you could do differently whilst still keeping warm.
Outfit 1: For my first choice I have a cool pair of step hem crop jeans, wear a warm crew neck jumper, then pull on the utility jacket, roll up the sleeve once to show the jumper sleeve, and then add the faux fur long waist coat for extra warmth and style. Wear a pair of square toe ankle boots for extra style creds and possibly a fedora if you’re into your hats and accessories.
Outfit 2: This warm long sleeve fitted top underneath is perfect under all sorts, ware underneath the dress, add a leather jacket and biker boots or and ankle boot to dress this look down and keep you warm whilst still looking great.
For something totally different, invest in a non skinny pair of leather trousers and Im pretty sure you wont regret it. Pair these with a plain top and simple shoes, be it heels or flats. Tuck this cashmere jumper in to show off the lovely waits-band and wear with a pair of suede sneakers or loafers to add edge and comfort on a cold day.
The key pieces of these three looks (Faux fur Waist coat, Maxi Dress, Leather Trousers) can all be dressed up and down depending on the shoes and accessories you choose. A good way of finding new outfits is looking through your wardrobe and finding something that you wouldn’t normally wear on any given day and pair it with a contrasting staple from your wardrobe to give it a new lease on life.
Have a happy week!
