When it comes to your winter wardrobe, it can be easy to go crazy shopping for new bits and pieces to see you through the season, especially if you don’t feel comfortable in your body as the change in weather approaches. So, to save you breaking the bank this winter trying to kit out your wardrobe, we’re going to share with you the 5 essentials you need to keep you looking on-trend this season!
- Chunky Knit, Roll Neck Cream Jumper
Versatile in colour and flattering in style, a chunky knit cream jumper with an oversized roll neck is super comfy and actually very simple yet the thick fabric and dramatic neckline does all the hard work for you, meaning you can just pair it with a pair of jeans and boots and be done!
Cream is a very flattering colour that works with all hair and skin colours and acts in a very similar way to white, working as a blank canvas to be paired with any other colour in your wardrobe, meaning you’ll get plenty of wear out of a jumper like this.
Super thick knitted jumpers like this are usually a bit tricky to layer with a jacket, so they’re best styled with a top underneath for extra warmth and worn on dry yet chilly days.
- A Knitted Tartan Scarf
Knitted scarves really are a must-have for winter, particularly those extra cold days when you need an extra layer and a thick tartan scarf, made from a knitted or wool material is perfect for keeping you cosy and on-trend.
Tartan scarves are available in a whole range of colour palettes to suit whatever colours you like the best and feel most comfortable in but the tartan style adds something fresh and fun to the design, helping to make a plain outfit feel a little more interesting.
- Black Leather Ankle Boots
Moving on to a winter footwear must-have, black leather or leather-look ankle boots are an essential for every woman.
Ankle boots are more versatile than taller boots as they can easily be paired with skirts, dresses, jeans or trousers as they’re shorter in style, also making them easier for women of all shapes and sizes as there are no worries about the width of the calf of the boot.
Choosing a black leather or leather-look pair will only further enhance the versatility and wear-ability of your new boots as black is the easiest colour shoe to pair with any outfit and the leather-style fabric is the most weather-resistant and much more suitable for winter.
- Thick Black Tights
Thick black opaque tights are a must-have in every woman’s hosiery collection, especially in winter. A higher denier is better for winter as they’ll be thicker in colour and feel, creating a smooth, toned look for the legs as well as keeping you warm in the cold weather.
Thick black tights can be paired with skirts or dresses for workwear, casual wear or even formal occasions and can even help transition some of your more summery items of clothing in your winter wardrobe.
Emma Conway, a mummy blogger from Birmingham, actively discusses her style on Instagram, sharing her tips and tricks for dressing as a ‘plus size’ woman and she regularly raves about the Marks & Spencer Autograph 60 denier tights, advising buyers to size up for the comfiest and most flattering fit!
- A Longline Camel Coat
Business casual is very much a style that has become on-trend in recent years, pairing more formal items with more casual pieces to create a look that is ideal for every and any occasion and the camel coat has been a big part of this.
Longline camel coats, often with double-breasted collars have become a big hit everywhere, from the catwalks to the high street, everyone has been wearing them and that’s because they are so versatile, particularly through winter.
The neutral beige colour looks great with both light and dark shades you may be wearing and the structured but loose-fitting cut of these longline jackets areideal for layering and really can be dressed up or down.
