I've Fallen In Love With These Classic Winter Pieces and I Think You Will Too

Emma Spedding winter shopping lists



As a fashion editor, I have spent a lot of my career reporting on new trends, new labels and new ways to wear things. However, in an effort to slow down the trend cycle and buy items with longevity in mind, we are also conscious here at Who What Wear to dedicate as many stories to repeated outfit ideas, classic items and secondhand items. Personally, I always gravitate to simple pieces that have a timeless appeal.

Below I've put together an edit of classic winter pieces that I really love, including fine knitwear to wear in place of a T-shirt, beautiful leather handbags, blazers in neutral shades and chunky ankle boots. In terms of brands, there of a number of labels I always turn to for a timeless aesthetic. At a higher price point, Nanushka and Totême are two brands leading the way here, and on the high street I'm consistently most impressed by Scandi brands Arket and & Other Stories for both quality and design. Keep scrolling to see 27 classic winter pieces I love.

Classic Winter Pieces I Love:

I love the subtle cut-out details on this jumper. 

Collars always get a big thumbs up from me. 

I have a weakness for blazers, and this suit is so beautiful. 

The matching flared trousers are amazing too. 

Loewe wrap coats are as classic as they come.

Gucci's horsebit detailing will always be iconic. 

I'd layer this under a chunky knit. 

This terracotta shade blends perfectly with neutral and beige shades.

As close to wearing a duvet as you can.

Totême is one of our favourite brands for timeless pieces. 

Ribbed knitted dresses are the perfect mix of cosy and smart. 

Arket is one of our favourite places for tailored jackets. 

Sweetheart necklines will be big in 2021 and beyond. 

We'd style it exactly like this. 

Sliders wouldn't normally feature on a list of winter items, but these cosy sliders are ideal for cold nights at home.

Nanushka is one of our favourite labels for elevated labels.

One of the most beautiful coats we've seen this year.

Chunky boots are a 2020 essential. 

Leather trousers are a cold-weather staple.
