Much more than your average December, there's a definite sense of trepidation in the air as we enter into winter 2020. While it might be tricky to find big things to look forward to, we will always have small pleasures: the comforting warmth of a woolen roll neck or the toasty appeal of fleece-lined slippers. It might be dark and it might be cold, but let us not underestimate the mood-boosting powers of cosy, cold-weather style.
Whether you're looking for a cocooning puffer coat or a pair or sturdy boots, thankfully the high street has delivered on all fronts this season. From Arket's sellout puffers and Mango's western-inspired tassels, to COS's winning coats and Gap's classic cashmere, scroll down to see and shop the best bits from the high street's winter drops.
Mango is packed-full of elevated staples right now: Think wide leg jeans, fringed jackets and classic shirts. At the top of my wishlist? The below check print jacket.
A somewhat lesser-known brand in the high street realm, Monki still yields plenty of winning designs. This season they're all about those throw-on weekend staples: Think striped jumpers, straight leg jeans and puffers.
According to our data, H&M is having a moment in the spotlight right now thanks to its premium-feel fabrics and on-point edits. The brand dropped its Conscious Collection yesterday and it's not to be missed.
At the upper end of the market, Whistles knows how to deliver premium pieces that will stand the test of time. Its boot selection is particularly good this season and the Barkley Zip Front Boot is just too damn cool.
Zara is a firm favourite amongst the fashion crowd, thanks to its reactive collections and affordable trend-setting styles. The brand has really delivered on luxe minimalism this year, and can be seen in its winter knits and accessories.
