Leather is always a winning look in winter, but this year it is set to come in muted tones. Think soft pinks and pastel blues paired with creamy whites and other subtle colors. As far as leather pieces go, look for long midi skirts, relaxed trousers and longline coats. Perfect for merging style with comfort and warmth, you’ll be sure to find a look that works for you.
Chances are you’ll be needing a coat, a good coat, to face the winter chill this season. When it comes to coats this winter, the luxe look is the way to go. Look for thick wool coats in dark, muted colors like navy, burgundy and grey. They’ll add a modern yet luxurious feel to your outfit and also keep you snug until spring.
Khaki is going to be big news this winter, with khaki coats, trousers, skirts and even accessories featuring heavily in many of the collections. Look for oversized khaki trench coats for a classic look or for something a bit more fun, why not try a khaki A-line skirt and team it with a bold print for the perfect winter warmer.
Checks and plaids never seem to go out of fashion, and this winter is no exception. Look out for variations of the classic checkered and plaid prints, especially in blazer-style jackets, and also on trousers, skirts and accessories. Feel free to mix and match to create your own unique look and embrace the somewhat preppy yet timeless look.
Elongated, exaggerated and full sleeves are popping up everywhere, bridging the gap between winter fashion and statement dressing. Whether it’s a full ballerina-style sleeve on a dress or a ruffled flutter sleeve on a blouse, you’ll be able to find a design that will help you stand out from the crowd.
A subtler approach to the statement sleeve, the cuff-sleeve is set to be a key look for winter. Look for fine blouses with mini pouffy sleeves that come complete with a thin cuff to add some subtle drama. Team these with statement skirts and accessories for the ultimate winter look.
Relaxed shirts are the way forward this winter, offering an effortless, comfortable and stylish option for winter dressing. Look for longline shirts in classic checkered or plaid patterns that you can wear for days spent roaming or why not team a simple white shirt with a statement skirt for the ultimate day-to-night look.
Velvet is making a comeback, with even more luxe designs than before. Look for velvet skirts, dresses and even blazers to help add a touch of modern glamour to any outfit. Wear a velvet dress to your next special occasion or why not find a comfortable yet stylish velvet skirt to wear to work.
Knee-high boots are a winter staple, but this season they are likely to come in a variety of different styles and colors. Think cowboy boots, sleek black designs and even chunky, statement styles that scream elegance. Look for boots that match the style of your wardrobe and you’ll be able to wear them all winter long.
Knitwear never seems to go out of style and this year, it’s very much on trend. Look for chunky, oversized cardigans to layer over jeans and simple dresses for a chic winter look. You can also find some stylish knitwear pieces with hidden details like intricate twists or interesting textures that will add some extra depth and interest to your outfit.
