With the cold snap shocking us into a fashion state of panic, this week has been tough on the ol' wardrobe. Layers have become non-negotiable, coats mandatory and last year's cosiest accessories need to be brought out of hibernation and kicked into action, stat. Sounds simple, but it can be mighty confusing when you've only just relented into tights and come to the realisation that Christmas (and the gift-shopping list to go with it) are fast approaching.
If you've been in a style spin and are looking for a fast-track into winter outfit excellence, then we've got a treat for you: nine great looks we've sourced from across the style blogging world to provide some start-your-engines inspiration.
From the kind of floral prints to swap in for the colder months through to the pile-it-on plans that may even allow you to leave your coat at home, these girls have multiple answers to your every getting-dressed conundrum.
So, without further ado, let's see the most stylish ladies acing it in the November chill—and find out where they're shopping these savvy pieces.
Style Notes: Vinyl is quite clearly having a moment—just scroll through the gallery and you'll see it on a few occasions. We particularly appreciate how Soraya Bakhtiar has brought together athleisure and something sassy by pairing her high-shine skirt with a sweatshirt.
Camille Over The Rainbow
Style Notes: Camille Charrière can always be relied upon for an excellent denim moment. The artful collection of a slightly slouched-off-the-shoulder coat, alternative Breton sweater and statement boots does it again.
Style Notes: Darja Barranik is fast becoming one of our most constant crushes—she wows yet again in a statement overcoat, needing nothing more in this ensemble aside from black layers and loafers.
Style Notes: Dishing out a masterclass in how to do velvet like a tomboy, Lucy Williams of Fashion Me Now has just sorted our day-to-night party look for the rest of the year.
Style Notes: We like bombers, and we like pleated skirts. We definitely like that Doina Ciobanu has combined the two (and a rainbow of colours) to provide a fantastic—and easy—new formula.
Style Notes: This pink sweater has been taking fashiontown by storm. Pandora Sykes ramps up her signature layering prowess by slipping on a little lace slip to peek out from underneath the jumper and over some simple black jeans.
Style Notes: Natasha of Bisous Natasha tackles the PVC trend and wins. Why not soften the idea of wet-look trousers with a really cosy sweater? Heels turn this into a potential party ensemble too.
Style Notes: It's time to put pastels and sweet shades aside in favour of darker hues and more dramatic prints like this stunning Tibi dress seen on Charlotte Groeneveld. She's a woman after our own hearts, combining it with a very UK-ready pair of ankle boots.
Style Notes: The idea of a leather trench coat and slip dress may sound OTT, but in a season where boudoir is a strong trend, it's no surprise. Vanessa Hong adds some extra femme fatale touches via her bondage boots.
