Winter Wardrobe Style Tips & WIN This Suede Bag
It looks like winter is well and truly here after this weekend but is your wardrobe winter-ready? We often find that people immediately gravitate towards darker colours and over-sized silhouettes in winter and that’s fine, as long as it suits you and makes you feel good. We wanted to share some of our style tips on how to create the perfect winter wardrobe.
Dark Palette Rules
When choosing a darker colour palette, it’s essential that the items you wear have interest and texture such as; a suede bag mixed with leather boots and a luxurious wool fabric. The contrast in fabrics and textures makes the outfit much more interesting than wearing the same black, grey or navy tone throughout the outfit.
Choosing Your Checks
Check coats are everywhere at the moment in all different colours, shapes and sizes. If you are looking for a one-season-wonder choose a standout coat but be careful not to over-spend as it will most likely only last one season. If you are looking for something for this season and beyond, we recommend sticking to a check that has dark hues (such as the one below) with a subtle pop of colour. This will ensure that you coat is not only timeless but also works with everything. If you are going for a more formal coat, team it up with a printed t shirt to keep it looking youthful.
The Cross Body Bag
We often find that lots of our clients tend to stick to one bag until it falls apart all year round rather than swapping bags more often. We always recommend changing your bag as the season changes. That fuchsia pink bag that looked so great with your summer outfits doesn’t quite cut the mustard (pardon the pun) for winter. We love this suede cross-body bag by GANT which is perfect for day and night and holds just the right essentials you need to go out. We are also giving away this must-have bag as part of a competition (see details below).
Just like clothes, shoes don’t last forever and if your classic black boots are looking worse for wear or as if you’ve jumped in one too many muddy puddles, it’s time to update those ever-so-useful wardrobe staples. When looking for classic/work-with-everything black boots we recommend opting for a simple pair with little or no detail. Avoid too many buckles, hardware and stitch detailing if you want a pair that works with everything.
Granted, the look above would also work with blue denim jeans but black jeans are another staple that should ideally be present in every woman’s wardrobe. Even more so than blue jeans, these are a great day to evening colour that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Are your black jeans looking more grey than jet black? It may be time to invest in a good pair for the winter. We always recommend washing jeans inside out and avoid over-washing them. Need help locating the best shape for you?
