February may seem like one of the most difficult months to dress for, but we think it’s all about perception. Sure, it’s still borderline unbearably cold, but as the days begin to stretch, we start to see the first signs of spring emerge. As ever, we believe it always pays to get ahead, which is why, during February, we’re going to start building up our new-season wardrobes whilst still leaning on the winter style staples that have served us well since November.
After trawling through Instagram, we’ve come across eight key looks that are ideal for February—all you need to add is your favourite coat or switch out any inappropriate footwear for some trusty boots. From cool layered outfits to co-ords that are right for the office (and won’t have you freezing), here’s exactly what to wear in February.
Polo shirts are a must this season, having been prevalent on the Prada and Chloé runways. Tuck yours into a pair of jeans for an instant update on your off-duty attire.
This is probably one of the chicest pairings you can wear. Simply layer a sophisticated blazer over a roll-neck for a look that’s toasty and timeless.
While we’re certainly not advocating you step out in bare legs just yet, that doesn’t mean you can’t don your prettiest frocks. Just be sure to wear them with a pair of above-the-ankle boots. If you opt for a maxi length, you can even pop on a pair of tights for extra warmth confident in the knowledge no one will see them.
Not only are boilersuits an outfit in one—which makes them the ideal attire for when you’re running late in the morning—but it can also be seamlessly styled with a roll-neck (preferably Heattech) underneath when it’s chilly out.
While Vanessa may have forgone tights, we intend on wearing a statement coat with a black miniskirt (and opaques) when we’re in need of some instant chicness.
