Hello, winter! We’ve officially welcomed the cooler weather and this means a wardrobe refresh to see in the new season. For me, this season is all about staying cosy yet still maintaining an element of polish with my outfits. I love beautiful natural textures such as wool and cashmere, a lot of layering and plenty of standout accessories to liven things up. If you’ve been struggling with what’s in your closet then never fear—I’ve rounded up some of the best style ideas from Instagram so you can revamp your looks with ease.
Update your denim
For most women, jeans are a constant throughout winter. So, inject some new life into your favourite denim by adopting new silhouettes. Looser, relaxed styles such as cropped wide leg is one way to take your casual off duty style in a new direction.
I can’t live without my leather jacket throughout winter as it works with most things in my wardrobe. And whilst the standard moto jacket is a classic if you want to make a statement consider different styles. This marching band jacket is one such piece that works beautifully with a dress and adds a little edge to an otherwise conservative silhouette.
Consider a cropped knit
This style works well with a relaxed ‘mom style’ jean and sneakers however it also works well as a layering piece. Pair it with a button down and you’ve got instant French girl vibes.
The beauty of layering is being able to add a little more depth to your look with the use of different textures. I love the contrast of wool with a slinky silk satin as a way to glam up a winter ensemble.
Be adventurous with your coats
A fluffy coat might not seem the most practical of outerwear options but it really can work with so many looks in your wardrobe. It works with jeans and leather leggings or over a dress equally as well and it’s super cosy too.
Oversize your denim
I’ve said in the past how much I love denim jackets as a layering piece and I’m still all over them. This season try a slightly oversized denim jacket as a topper over everything from a dress to pants or a skirt.
Have fun with winter fabrics
Heavy tweed is synonymous with winter fashion and can often err on the side of conservative. However when in a playful jumpsuit style it can instantly turn it into something fun and a little more relaxed.
Add a punchy print to black
Black is a favourite of most throughout winter because it’s sleek, polished and easy to work with. However it can sometimes look a little flat. To combat this weave a few prints into your look. Polka dots and stripes are an easy go-to and can instantly inject a little energy into your ensemble.
Experiment with winter neutrals
Freshen up your winter looks with light, airy shades—they’re so fun in summer why not wear them all year round? A white blazer worked back with an eye catching print makes for a punchy and on trend look.
Just add accessories
My favourite way to liven up a look is with a few bold accessories. Think anything in a vibrant shade or something ornate such as a vintage style brooch which can instantly add an element of interest to any outfit.
Belt it up
Want to give your blazer a point of difference? Try cinching it with a belt. It’s flattering (hello, tiny waist) and it instantly shakes up the silhouette and gives it a different feel.
Tuck it in
Want to change up the look and feel of an outfit? Try tucking your shirt (or jumper or tee) in. This is especially the case with winter knits which are given a little more shape when tucked into pants.
