Down-filled anoraks, woolly knits, thick tights and knee highs: Winter essentials are perfect for keeping warm, cosy and flu-free but not so perfect for showing off your oh-so-fashionable side. So how do we crack the ice on this season’s style secret? House of Coco has got you covered.
It’s very tempting to lean towards our monochrome neutral tones for hibernation season, but don’t hide behind that palette of blacks and greys, try adding a pop of colour to lift your mood and style – red is especially in trend.
Every girl needs a wool jumper! They’re cosy and you can totally make them stylish by throwing on a couple of necklaces and/or a choker. Metallics are also in trend, so why not get yourself a jumper with metallic details. Mango has a nice selection of them at the moment, and if you’re lucky you may be able to grab one in the sales!
Faux fur! If you’re trying to get noticed or stand out from the crowd this is the way to go. An over-the-top fur coat paired with simple black leggings takes you from cavewoman to rock-star.
It’s all in the details, a chunky scarf and thick knee high socks will add that extra bit of warmth to your outfit – This works best with dresses and skirts of course.
And of course, layering – Essential for keeping warm. There are many different ways to do this; we love how ropesofholland layered this rolls neck under a t-shirt! You can also wear basics underneath any sleeved clothes but make sure they’re thin to avoid bulk.
