We’re fast approaching my favourite season for fashion — winter. Though the cold weather is miserable, it calls for layers upon layers, and as a lover of fashion what could be better?
The tricky thing at the moment is that the weather isn’t consistent in the UK. Trying to predict whether it will be cold, warm, raining or frosty is a losing game, so what we all need is a solution to combat this and prepare for what is probably going to be one of the coldest winters we’ve had for awhile with all this crazy weather.
‘Buying smart’ could be the solution. What I mean by this is getting your hands on those staple pieces which can be adapted for multiple outfits; for example ones that pop into my mind immediately would be:
- A winter coat
These four items are pretty much winter essentials and any outfit can be built around them. I’ve styled two outfits here which can be adapted so you can make the most of your winter wardrobe (though I’ll show you how in my next post).
Outfit 1: The One for Occasions
For those evening meals and parties that you have to attend, having a few go to’s is always the way forward. Smart cropped pants, a black turtleneck, blazer and belt can work for any of those dressy occasions you’re going to. What’s great is that all these items can be styled in more casual ways.
Outfit 2: The One for the Warmer Days
Winter isn’t always about black ice and snow, some days aren’t too bad. Oversized shirts and jeans are the to go when the weather is better than usual. Layering underneath the shirt can also work for those days when it’s a bit colder.
Look out for my next post where I’ll use these piece for different looks.
