There are certain staples pieces that, without which, your winter wardrobe is never truly complete. Here are the seven wardrobe wonders to shop right now.
The Trench Coat
The classic trench coat is one of fashion’s most timeless pieces. Widely regarded as the last word when it comes to quintessentially British style staples, a good quality beige trench coat goes the distance. Add a scarf and knee high boots or dress down with casual pumps and Breton stripes; the trench will quickly become one of the most wearable things in your wardrobe.
Super-soft cashmere knits are one of the little luxuries that help make icy cold winters a little more bearable. Most wearable in classic shades of black, grey, cream and navy, cashmere is worth the extra investment. Buy great quality cashmere once and you’ll wear it for years, that same cosy feeling slipping over you each and every time you slip it on.
The Little Black Dress
A winter without a little black dress is no winter at all, thanks to the endless parties that come with the season, so it is never too early to start the search for the perfect one. You can always rely on Versace to bring all-out glamour to proceedings and their incredible studded number is crying out to be worn to festive soirees. Keep your heels black, strappy and simple; all eyes will be right where they should be - on that amazing embellished neckline.
The Roll Neck Jumper
Recent seasons have seen the return of Seventies style, bringing with it the return of the roll neck. Reimagined in various guises, from gossamer thin to chunky cable knits, the roll neck evokes a Parisian feel. Slick on your red lips and add blue jeans for a classic look, layer beneath this season’s pinafore dresses for more preppy appeal or style with pencil skirts and shift dresses for a smart yet sexy take. However you wear you, the roll neck is set to become the most versatile garment in your winter wardrobe.
A Chic Scarf
The scarf is a winter staple, a must-have piece that will bring your leather jacket and jeans bang up to date, before slipping over lighter jumper come spring. If you’re anything like us, wear-forever accessories call for muted patterns in neutral shades, with Mulberry’s super-fine cotton fitting the bill perfectly. Super soft and bedecked with the designer’s signature Mulberry tree motif, this is one scarf you’ll be reluctant to take off once indoors.
Skinny jeans are worth their weight in gold all year round but winter is when they really come into their own. Slipped effortlessly into knee high boots, worn beneath chunky oatmeal jumpers, dressed up with heels or glamming up a semi-sheer white blouse; their versatility knows no bounds. Some of our favourite styles are expertly crafted from the best quality denim by True Religion.
The Tuxedo Jacket
On occasions when a leather jacket just won’t cut it, the tuxedo jacket is just the thing. Sleek, slim fitting and the perfect companion to everything from dresses and heels, skinny jeans or leather trousers and even full length evening gowns, with a winter full of festive soirees, the tuxedo jacket will be the hero of your evening attire. Our favourites come courtesy of Michael Kors and Armani Collezioni.
