My list of things you need in your wardrobe by the end of winter.  Sometimes mid winter you just feel like you need a top up so here’s some help.

A question asked over and over by women across the world is what do I wear when the weather gets cooler?  Each year the answer isn’t any more simple.

It seems when the temperature drops our wardrobe options seem to shrink at a fast pace.  So we really do need to invest in the season ahead, but sensibly.  I think it’s good to launch into your winter wardrobe with ease, buy a few things and go back and re-visit what you could add to it.   Whether it’s a brand new jacket, an updated jean or the perfect dress to see you through wintery Saturday nights, a cold-weather shopping list is important.

Let’s face it winter can be dismal so if we don’t have shopping to look forward to then what’s the point?  🙂

Here is a list of some items that can add fun, interest & more options to get you through.

The Piece :  Faux fur jacket

It’s bigger than ever this season, so wear your faux fur with confidence all through winter. Try cropped, coloured and oversized styles for an instantly statement-making take on outerwear.


The Piece : Chunky Boot

Yay to comfort.  Opt for a chunky heel this winter, pair with a wide legged jean, trouser or floaty skirt.  The trend is white or a metallic boot this winter.


The Piece : Coloured Blazer

A coloured blazer adds instant wow to an outfit.  How about wearing the same colour but different shades.  Match colour families with like tones for an update on traditional colourblocking.  A very chic approach!

The Piece : Florals

Don’t restrict florals to spring or summer.  They have been prevalent on all runways and the wintery streets.  These are now seen year-round.  Try one of the many floral dresses layered up or, a floral print on a pair of jeans.

The piece : A V Neck Sweater

The V neck has made a comeback in the chicest of ways.  Seen mostly in knitwear, the deep-cut neck has a place in your winter wardrobe.  Pair it with a jacket for layering or something woollen (higher-cut) underneath, it’s perfect for keeping you toasty through winter.


The Piece :  Velvet anything

Velvet trousers, jackets, blouses & dresses.  It was here last year but it’s back this year and if you can find a gorgeous pair of velvet trou grab them especially if they are a shade of purple.


Shopping winter does take some planning.  My shopping trips are well and truly in full swing for winter.  I do still have some appointments to help with your shopping woes, an added bonus is shopping in places that give my clients a Stylist discount which often amounts to a rather big saving.  If I can be of help just drop me a line.

Until more updates.

Enjoy layering and trying these gorgeous looks.

Yours in Style,
