The evenings are becoming darker, and temperatures are starting to drop, which means winter is on the way. While winter is a time for being cosy and warm (and drinking lots of hot chocolate!), it doesn’t mean that you can’t look stylish at the same time.

Curating a winter wardrobe can be a lot of fun, as there are so many different styles that you can play around with. After a difficult year without too much socialising or fun, packing up your summer clothes until next year and embracing the feeling of a new season can be a welcome change. Hitting the refresh button and trying out some new winter styles is a great way to blow away those lockdown cobwebs and breathe new life into your look.

One of the best parts of winter dressing is that there is so much flexibility with what you can wear. Keeping yourself warm is the perfect excuse for playing around with different styles and textures to create a unique look. Once you have the basic items for your winter wardrobe, you will have the freedom to style it however you would like. Take a look at our winter wardrobe essentials that form the base for dressing stylishly for the cold weather:

The Perfect Coat

One item that you will spend a lot of time wearing over the winter is your coat. Choosing a coat can be so difficult. There are so many different styles to choose from, and you need to select one that will work with all of your winter clothes. Shopping for a new coat can get pretty stressful when there are lots to choose from, but you are looking for ‘the one.’ To complicate matters further, your choice of coat doesn’t need to just work well with your clothing choices; it also needs to fit perfectly and keep you warm. All this effort is worth it, as when you find the perfect coat, it should last you for years to come.

Lots of Layers

Who doesn’t love layering? Layering is a winter essential and also an easy way to look effortlessly stylish. Layering allows you to create a whole new look just by wearing the same items differently, and you can add layers and take them away to suit the temperature. Over the winter, layers work well with jeans, so find some that fit you well and maybe by them in a few colourways to ensure that you have enough to get you through the season and beyond.

Everyday Boots

Say no to cold feet this winter and find yourself some perfect boots. Boots are, without doubt, a cold-weather essential to keep your feet cosy on even the coldest days. The great thing about boots is that they can be styled however you want to suit your look. Boots over jeans are a great choice for meeting friends and Christmas shopping trips but look just as good styled with tights and a shorter skirt for a festive night out.

 

 

 

Fashion and Style? What’s the difference..

Fashion can be easily confused with style but they are very difference. Fashion is all what is going on in the fashion industry; the  trends and what is in vogue. While style is what is going on in your wardrobe. It is your personal taste and how you mix and match your pieces/accessories to create your signature look. With this current pandemic many people are taking a break from the fashion world and working with their work from home signature pieces. If you don’t have a capsule wardrobe, you may struggle in this current time with what to wear.

One of the many beauties of having a capsule wardrobe is that you have a wardrobe that is complementary. You never run out of what to wear with a capsule wardrobe and that is how your personal style is created. With mixing and matching of different pieces and accessories, your style is born. Fashion is what you get in the stores. Style is what you do with it.

Here are some easy ways to spot the differences between fashion and style –

Fashion is your relationship with the fashion world

Fashion is your relationship with the external. It is what you see on the fashion blogs, social media, runaway, on the high street and advertisements. Fashion is what the fashion designers give to you everyday. Fashion is very out there.

Style is your relationship with your signature look

Style is your relationship with the internal. It is what you see when you shop around. Style is your personal taste which creates your capsule wardrobe. Style is very personal.

Fashion is about them, style is you

Fashion is about everything else going on in the fashion industry outside of you, style is what is happening within you.

The best way to look at this is understanding the fact that fashion and Style are very different but they are both needed. You can’t have one without the other and you really shouldn’t. I love my Fashion and I adore my style. They both make me who I am.
