When it comes to getting dressed in winter, there are a lot of variables to consider. Wanting to look stylish is a given (I can say this with confidence seeing as you've found yourself on Who What Wear), but if you're anything like me and you feel even the slightest temperature change deep in your bones, then being cosy is pretty high on the agenda, too. Striking the perfect balance of both, however, isn't easy—heck, I've worked in fashion for almost 12 years, and even I find curating outfits for winter challenging. This is why it's handy to have a few formulas to refer to whenever you're lacking inspiration.
I've been saving down such formulas on Instagram for a while now to better prepare myself for the cold snap, so why not share them with you? Below, you'll find a selection of influencer winter outfits I really rate that will help you feel your stylish best throughout the season. From the skirt style that pairs so effortlessly with knee boots to the low-key combination I'm wearing for casual days running errands or walking the dogs, scroll on to see eight simple influencer winter outfits I can't wait to re-create.
Style Notes: Many of you will already own a beige or camel-coloured coat; if so, I'm sure you'll attest to its ability to make every outfit look polished. Right now, influencer types are pairing theirs with knitted minidresses and knee boots for an elevated winter outfit solution.
Style Notes: Leather is one of my favourite fabrications to wear in the winter months, as it helps to keep you toasty. Real or faux, try styling yours with, thermals, a crisp white shirt and a jumper over top.
Style Notes: Jumper dresses have become a winter style staple, especially over the past few years. I tend to wear mine with a thin, long-sleeve top underneath for extra warmth. Add a belt over the top to help keep your hidden layer in place. Then finish with your favourite boots. Simple.
Style Notes: Often I find styling casual outfits harder than more formal ones, so I keep going back to Lorna's sweatshirt and tailored coat combination for reference. Just add blue jeans and classic kicks and you're good to go.
Style Notes: Borg and shearling textures are all the rage this season, particularly in fleece form. Give yours a glossy spin with the addition of a trending pleated miniskirt and chunky, lug-sole boots.
Style Notes: Monochrome dressing—wearing various shades of the same colour top to toe—is a styling tricked favoured by influencers whose goal is to look premium at all times. Case in point: Dina's grey menagerie.
Style Notes: If you're looking for an outfit that works for more formal occasions or evenings out but that you still want to feel warm in, look no further than India's oversized jumper, slip skirt and knee-boot triad. It's timeless and chic, and you can also add a pair of tights into the equation to keep you especially toasty.
