My Style Is Simple, and These Are My Favourite Winter Outfit Ideas

As I’ve said before, my style is simple, but I like to think that that doesn’t mean it’s boring—and hopefully others agree. Yes, I love the occasional party dress, fun bag or statement shoes, but I’ve always believed that when it comes to day-to-day style, you can achieve an impressive outfit without wearing anything out of the ordinary. That’s why my closet is mostly made of the best versions of basics: Think jeans, ankle boots, simple jackets and a lot of black, with some “cooler” pieces sprinkled in here and there.

So when it comes to dressing for winter in the city, I tend to stick to fuss-free outfits that as a package look polished, put together, and, of course, stylish. With that in mind, I scanned the world of celebrity style, street style and Instagram style to narrow down my favourite looks to copy for the season ahead. What to expect? A lot of black and neutrals, but also classic prints, basics, timeless silhouettes and most importantly, easy-to-copy inspiration. As for the rest? Simply continue on to see (and shop) for yourself.

The combination of a leopard coat and turtleneck pretty much make it such that nothing else even matters, but all-black is always a good way to go.

If, like me, you love wearing all black but want to take it to the next level, go for a mix of (conveniently warm) textures such as a teddy coat and vinyl pants.

This is exactly what I’d like to wear next time I have a night out. I love the combination of the cropped puffer with a bodysuit, a statement belt, perfect-fitting jeans and glossy ankle boots.

Whether it’s with jeans and a hoodie or trousers and a blazer as pictured, I’m obsessed with this idea of styling winter whites with a contrasting faux-fur coat.

You can’t go wrong with leopard layered over denim.

For holiday parties, a blazer dress and embellished ankle boots looks like the way to go.

Another all-black outfit enhancement is to swap your basic boots for an on-trend snake-print pair.

Last, but certainly not least, we have the classic and comfortable combination of the checked overcoat with stylish black sneakers and, of course, your go-to jeans.
