We all have a checked blazer hanging somewhere in our wardrobes. Give it a wintry spin with the help of a marl grey hoodie and by wearing your boots over your jeans.

2. COCOON COAT + STRAIGHT-LEG JEANS

Offset the oversized silhouette of a cocoon coat by pairing it with no-fuss straight-leg jeans and Western ankle-grazers. 

3. 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. 

4. PUFFER COAT + DRESS + TRAINERS

Puffer jackets and duvet coats are major players in the winter style game. Use yours to give your lightweight dresses a seasonal twist—and heck, if you need to wear leggings underneath them to keep the chill at bay, that's totally acceptable.  

5. TRENCH COAT + WIDE-LEG TROUSERS + BUCKET HAT

You probably already own all of these things, but have you thought of wearing them together? This is an easy and fun way to play with proportions for winter. 

6. TAILORED COAT + CARDIGAN + FLARES

A simple black tailored coat is anything but boring paired with a statement blue cardigan and relaxed flares. Add a chunky boot for extra winter style points. 

7. SHEARLING COAT + PADDED JACKET + LEGGINGS

As things get really chilly, put those thinner padded jackets to use as another layer under cosy shearling coats. Then just add stirrup leggings and manly brogues to finish the look. 

8. KNITTED VEST + COLLARED CARDIGAN + MINISKIRT

We're here to prove you can wear miniskirts in winter! Just balance it out with double knits on top and chunky ankle or knee-high boots for extra cosiness. Worst case, you can always throw on a pair of tights too.
