11 Winter-Ready Outfits We Can't Stop Looking at This October

It can be all too easy when temperatures drop to a certain (read: icy) level to lean on the same outfits you have for the past few years, huddling up in grey, navy and black knitwear and the same black ankle boots. While you can't beat a classic, if you're looking for some new winter combinations, the likes of Aimee Song, Lucy Williams and more have been wearing a number of practical yet still interesting looks you too will be able to wear on repeat until spring.

Many of these key items you'll already own, such as roll-necks and classic blazers, but you can make your winter wardrobe more 2020 with cream boots, teddy coats and leather trousers. Just because you have to make sensible choices doesn't mean you have to spend the next six months in boring and unadventurous outfits. 

Keep scrolling to see 11 winter outfit ideas and combinations that you can lean on during a cold snap.

1. PUFFER + MIDI SKIRT

Style Notes: Make a puffer jacket feel more fashion-forward by pairing it alongside updated seasonal staples such as a wrap midi skirt and a statement handbag. 

2. LEATHER TOP + JEANS

Style Notes: Forgo the leather jacket this season and opt for a leather shirt instead. For added warmth, pair a rollneck underneath as an extra layer. 

3. LEATHER TROUSERS + BLENDING BOOTS

Style Notes: Leather trousers are a wintertime staple. For a fresh take, seek out a burgundy or brown hue, and then match your boots to them for easy coordination. 

4. SHACKET + MIDI SKIRT

Style Notes: You needn't forgo midi skirts when temperatures drop. Instead, wear them with a woollen shacket, brogues and thick knitted socks.

5. OVERSIZE CARDI + JEANS + BOOTS

Style Notes: An oversize cardi is the cosy essential you'll wear all winter. Pair it with jeans and boots for a look that is perfect for brunch or WFH. 

6. BERET + CHECKED SHORTS

Style Notes: For a classic take on winter dressing, stick to a tonal colour palette, as well as wardrobe essentials like trench coats and berets. 

7. MAXI DRESS + BLAZER

Style Notes: For formal outings, try pairing a maxi dress alongside your favourite blazer and boots. 

8. JACKET + BELT BAG

Style Notes: Cinch in the heat by layering a sleek belt bag over shorter jacket styles. 

9. STANDOUT COAT + REFINED SEPARATES

Style Notes: If your outerwear is of the bold variety, keep the rest of your outfit pared-back to ensure it looks cool, not cliché. 

10. TONAL COAT, JEANS + SNAKESKIN BOOTS

Style Notes: A tonal winter white outfit can be just as timeless as classic black. Take the lead from A Style Edit and pair a teddy coat with light jeans to let statement boots do the talking. 

11. Leopard-Print Jacket + Blue Jeans

Style Notes: We're avid fans of leopard-print coats here at Who What Wear UK. This winter pair yours with vintage blue jeans and sturdy Chelsea boots for a simple yet statement weekend look.
