Getting dressed can be a struggle at the best of times. Throw in the fact that it's dark, cold and gloomy outside, and pulling yourself out of bed in the morning to choose an outfit is likely the last thing you want to do. So imagine how easy things would be if you had a handful of ready-made outfits at your disposal, all of which are weather-appropriate, incredibly chic, simple to assemble, and will work just as well on wintery walks as they will for getting together with your nearest and dearest. Well, imagine no more, for we've compiled an edit of influencer-approved ensembles that do all this and then some.
Below you'll find eight basic winter outfits that are anything but boring. In fact, you can likely compile with items that already exist in your wardrobe. They can all be mixed and matched to create a plethora of perfect winter ensembles and will have you looking stylish right through spring. From the new It coat to a cool jumper-and-skirt combo, keep scrolling to see and shop eight wonderful winter outfits.
1. BERET + ROLL-NECK + MIDI SKIRT
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 for when you're venturing outside to complete the outfit.
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.
5. VINYL TRENCH + POLISHED JOGGERS
We all want to emerge from the house in our comfiest garms and now, thanks to the slew of elevated 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.
6. PADDED JACKET + DRESS + TRAINERS
Puffer jackets and duvet coats are proving to be 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, we think this'll only further enhance the toasty, throwback look.
7. 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.
