When it comes to seasonal dressing, finding the ideal winter look can be tough. Sure, it may seem easy to just throw on a sweater and pair of jeans, but the ultimate goal for this time of year is to wear something both fashion forward and functional (aka something that will keep you warm).
Chunky knits, scarves and gilet’s should be your first port of call, but if you’re struggling to know how to style them, consider these five styling hacks straight from the brains of Pinterest…
Despite our best efforts, our winter wardrobes often end up being a mass of black and navy pieces. Let embellished accessories, like these studded Topshop boots divert attention away from dark canvases.
- Swap Your Wool Scarf for a Silk One
We get it. A bulky wool scarf is the first thing you reach for when it’s chilly – which means you’ve been rotating the same three since September. On a sunny day, throw on a silk style instead. A Liberty print is a classic that will never date.
- Socks with heels
Not ready to give up your sandals just yet? Us neither, usually referred to as a fashion faux pas, pairing socks with sandals/open toe summer shoes has risen in popularity as our winter shoe saviour. For evening, try dressing black Mary-janes with a pair of sparkly socks like these from Monki.
- Double up on the good stuff
Jackets that is. A khaki and leather duo will bring a dash of winter grunge to ensembles. Or try a streamlined puffer under a tailored double-breasted coat for extra warmth.
- Sleek shirting
The snazzy shirts you have lived in so far this autumn won’t become redundant in the winter months. Instead wear a cropped jumper over the top so your shirting is still visible. Or better yet, frame it with a cardigan – we love this modern puff-sleeved style from & Other Stories.
