As far as chic winter looks go, they don't come more stylish than the pleated-midi-skirt–and–roll-neck variety. Throw in a beret and on-trend lace-up boots to complete the look.

We all have a two-piece suit hanging somewhere in our wardrobes. Give it a wintry spin with the help of a hoodie (COS's cashmere iteration being our favourite take) and a pair of sock boots. 

COCOON COAT + STRAIGHT-LEG JEANS

Offset the oversized silhouette of a cocoon coat by pairing it with no-fuss straight-leg jeans and 2019's It boots: Western ankle-grazers. 

LEATHER + LEATHER

Be it vegan or the real thing, whatever your stance on leather, there's no denying that this heavy-duty fabric is ideal for shielding your frame from the harsh winter winds.

We all want to emerge from the house in our comfiest and now, thanks to the slew of polished joggers that are on offer, you can do just that. Pair with an equally toasty knit and a vinyl trench for the ultimate laid-back luxe. 

QUILTED JACKET + TREAD-SOLE BOOTS

Quilted jackets are commonplace in the countryside, but now they've been given a city spin in cool colours and textures. Just add exaggerated-sole boots and your favourite jeans. 

CABLE KNIT + MINISKIRT + KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

A miniskirt in winter? It can be done! Ensure you keep your top-half warm in a thick cable-knit, then offset the skin on show with a pair of knee-high boots. If you must, you can always add in a pair of opaque tights. 

COAT + CARDIGAN + MIDI DRESS
