Although the weather outside may be frightful, the winter fashion is oh-so-delightful. When temperatures drop, it's time to embrace chunky knits, slouchy jumpers and artful layering.
Whether you're going on a walk in the countryside, hitting the shops for early holiday bargains, or having friends round for a sumptuous seasonal stew, embracing winter's off-duty fashion trends has never been easier.
Turn heads with these 4 super simple and chic winter fashion picks.
If there's one piece to embrace this season it's the fashionista's secret weapon - the roll neck. Double the size of your winter wardrobe by layering warm-weather dresses and tops over a cosy roll neck. Or tuck this high-neck staple into high-waisted trousers for a sleek silhouette, wear with an oversized scarf or a classic button-down shirt.
Teaming fitted bottoms with an oversized top is a simple trick to balance out your proportions. And simple bottoms are fabulous for winter fashion as their streamlined silhouette gives you plenty of room to layer multiple items on top. Try swapping your usual denim for leggings or black leather trousers and pair with oversized jumpers and cosy knits.
You can't go through winter without a statement sweater. Longline cardigans are perfect for staying warm and can be cinched at the waist with a belt for a flattering silhouette, while adding a collared shirt underneath an oversized jumper creates a perfectly preppy look. Keep your knits fashionable (not frumpy) by teaming with skinny jeans or leggings and chic accessories.
Shearling coats and furry jackets are back in fashion, and old school has never looked so cool. Team cropped numbers with skinny jeans and ankle boots for a relaxed vibe, or embrace the retro look by pairing oversized faux fur jackets and shearling coats with bohemian prints and dresses. Not ready to go full-on fur? Embrace the trend by opting for a faux fur trim or a shearling collar. Shear bliss!
