Updating your winter wardrobe: Key items
You only need to look out of the window to witness the bleak and miserable scene that is the dawning of winter 2013. Having locked away our t-shirts and shorts a while ago now, it is time to revamp our winter wardrobes. Ladies, say goodbye to last year’s misshapen jumper and old bobbly tights – it’s time to embrace this season’s key trends…
Seemingly endless downpours and heavy snow flurries are likely to characterise this year’s winter, as they do almost every year. It is absolutely vital that you have the correct footwear to help combat these treacherous weather conditions.
Contrary to popular belief, winter shoes don’t have to be frumpy, practical walking boots that are more suited to an eighty year old than a fashionista like yourself. Just take a look at these delights from Brantano. With their sturdy block heel, western style detailing, and ankle height, these boots ooze winter practicality and style.
Winter wouldn’t be winter without a few classic knits in the old wardrobe! While the Fair Isle print was huge for winter 2012, this year it’s all about the fluffy jumper. The classic 90s style is the perfect way to stay cosy once the temperatures drop. You can find some great ones from New Look that are bang on trend.
These jumpers are so versatile you’re sure to end up wearing them all the time, so it’s best to stock up on a variety of colours. Dusky pinks, rich burgundies and of course classic blacks are the colours of the moment, so make sure you own at least one of each.
Winter 2012 saw everyone embracing fun, character knit hats. From strawberries to teddy bears, the rule was the crazier the better! This season though, fashionistas everywhere are taking headwear a little bit more seriously.
Loud hats are out, and simpler and plainer designs are in. Beanie hats are of the moment, with stars like Rita Ora and Rihanna all donning them. But just because we’re being more serious doesn’t mean we should neglect the bobble hat! This River Island number is a great option that will nicely finish off a casual winter outfit.
