Play with pattern
Feeling uninspired by your winter wardrobe? Try adding a few patterned pieces to inject some energy into your fail-safe outfits. Leopard and a classic Breton stripe are two prints that never go out of style; you’re sure to reach for them on those “I-have-nothing-to-wear” days. Guarantee compliments in this faux-fur leopard-print coat. Green is a key colour for spring and the hood will keep you extra snug. Layer it over this striped cotton top, which has a slash neckline and features bold colours for a contemporary twist on a classic. If you’re pattern shy, adding printed accessories is an easy way to make a winter outfit pop. Take cold weather in your stride with these leopard-print boots or stash your everyday essentials in an animal-print tote bag.
Make the most of your midi
Although the temperatures might continue to dip, there’s no need to cast our beloved midi dresses and pleated skirts aside just yet – try layering yours with a snug hoodie or gilet instead for a fresh winter outfit idea. It’s all about the layers when the weather is unpredictable, and this look nails it for comfort, style and ease. A brightly coloured hoodie teamed with a floral skirt and lace-up boots ticks all the boxes this winter. As for the bag? A quilted tote is the smartest way to stow your day-to-day essentials without adding weight.
