Winter is almost here with its cooler temps and grey, rainy days. Thankfully, we adore fashion, and can spend our days layering, rugging up and playing around with textures. If you've been gazing into your wardrobe every morning wondering what to wear, we're here for you.

Here are our six essentials, from knitwear to chunky boots, that make winter dressing a cinch...

With its ability to magically transform the most casual of pieces, an oversized blazer is the cherry on top of any autumn or winter outfit. Wear it a million ways for instant panache and polish. Style with jeans or leggings for a refined off-duty look, or a winter frock to take you day to night.  Experiment with different prints and colours. If your blazer is dark, try pairing it with a light outfit. Even activewear benefits from the addition of a blazer, especially if you stick to a single colour scheme for a look that is cool and chic. Magical indeed!

You can't go wrong with a logo tee or sweatshirt. Layer with a polo neck or padded jacket, or style with a tailored pant suit or boyfriend jeans. It is the key piece to that fuss-free approach to winter we're all craving.

Winter is on its way, so it’s time to face the cold, hard truth: you need to invest in a puffer. If shrugging on a lugging big coat sounds as exciting as a trip to the dentist, we have good news! This must-have wardrobe staple is 100% practical AND a fashion saviour. Try tossing over leggings and an oversized sweatshirt, letting the hood peek out up top. Warm up a maxi dress or mini for a statement-making silhouette, or make monochromatic magic by matching its colour with your outfit. The puffer is the very definition of statement-making. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
Minis, midis, and maxis are all fair game come winter; even florals, cotton and sleeveless – oh my! Play with outerwear, boots and accessories to maximise your wardrobe options. Team your favourite dress with a puffer jacket and chunky boots for out-of-the box styling, or a chunky sweater or blazer for casual off-duty. For evening, add an evening jacket, clutch, fitted boots and jewels for easy throw-on glamour.

Knitwear is always a smart investment for winter, and in 2022, it will become your office and weekend staple. Look for a style that gives you versatility:  a cardigan, round neck sweater, turtleneck, or collared knit (this season's modern take on the chic 70s menswear staple). Pare back with a denim jacket, knit beret and chunky boots on weekends and a pantsuit and Marni loafers during the week. Easy.


Boots are a must come winter, and with a slew of fab styles on offer, from classic Chelsea to ankle nipping styles, it's easy to find a pair that suits your look. Chunky boots are strong this season, and Ganni nails their style with ankle, mid-calf and knee-high versions. Downright cool and comfy-to-boot, their bulkiness creates perfect contrast against a pretty floral fabric or pastel shade. A slimmer-shaped ankle boot (we are obsessed with Dries Van Noten’s skinny Half Boots) is fab with any dress or slightly cropped, wide-leg jeans for a seamless line that adds inches to your leg line. Style with minimal pieces like flared jeans, sweater, and biker jacket for a French-girl aesthetic, and give even the most casual of outfits a high-fashion twist with ankle boots. Team with leggings or leather trackies that are suddenly dressy with the help of a heel.
