It’s been a long and pretty cold winter in London and keeping warm and stylish at the same time can be quite challenging sometimes. In this post, I decided to share some of my staple winter wardrobe pieces that I reach for when I want to look put together, but also feel cosy and comfortable.
This wool coat from Zara was one of my best finds in AW15. It keeps me warm, but it’s not too thick, so it also makes a great transitional piece for this time of the year when it’s still a bit too cold for a trench. I also think that the slim silhouette makes it look smart, so I like to wear it to work or for an evening out. A scarf is a must for me in the winter months and here I am wearing my favourite wool Versace scarf, which I got from TK Maxx at a great price. For a smart-casual look, I decided to pair a basic jumper and a suede mini skirt. I can’t resist over the knee boots, especially if they are suede, and I love the slightly slouchy look of this pair. The Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip bag has been one of my go-to small handbags over the past couple of years. If you own one of these, you know how well-made they are and how much (surprisingly) you can fit in them. I always keep a pair of leather gloves in my bag during the cold months. I prefer the look of leather gloves, although I have to admit sometimes I am seriously craving a pair of thick sheepskin gloves to warm up my freezing hands. I know that sunglasses are not exactly an essential in the winter, but on those rare sunny days, they can really add that special touch to your outfit.
