What You'll Really Find on an Influencer's Winter Wish List Right Now

It's hard making split-second shopping decisions at the best of times, but right now, as we find ourselves at the start of winter with a bounty of beautiful cold-weather staples fluttering into our favourite new-in sections like snowflakes, even the most-assured shoppers will inevitably second-guess themselves. 

The fact that this is one of the strongest autumn/winter seasons we've had in a long while isn't a bad thing; it just makes it more difficult to commit to a purchase when you want everything you see. What's more, you want to spend your money on pieces you'll love and wear for years to come. So it certainly pays to seek out some impartial advice before you spend on something, be it high street or designer. 

While I could write paragraph after paragraph on the pieces I'm currently coveting, I instead decided to enlist the help of some of my influencer friends, who shared with me their winter wish lists.

Seeing as they all have very different aesthetics, I was surprised to find each of them stuck to a largely neutral colour palette, proving that 2019 is indeed the year of classic style. That said, the pieces you'll find below are anything but boring. From trench coats adorned with faux-fur buttons to dresses so pretty you'll find any excuse to wear them, keep scrolling to see what those in the know intend to buy in the next few weeks.
