It’s a yearly event: that morning when it dawns on us that the weather has changed, and we’ve entered the cold season. There’s a discomforting chill inside our still unheated home, we leave the shower and hesitate before unwrapping the towel, and as we get dressed, we know it’s time to dust off our overcoat, check our jumpers for moth holes and search for the wool scarf we haven’t seen since March (it’s usually inside a coat pocket, by the way).
You already know your wardrobe response to the new temperature will be exactly the same as last year: it’s time to return to comfort layers – those that keep you warm and protected against the elements.
However, this can quickly make our looks appear boring and unimaginative. Is it because we think it’s bad taste to take sartorial or stylistic risks when everyone else is curling up in uninspiring layers and walking about with cups of hot watery soups, shoulders shrugged, depressed due to the weather?
Don’t be because we’ve bought u the best styling tips to glam up your winter..
Switch your middle layers :
There are clear guidelines: knitted jumpers for smart-casual wear and dressing down your tailoring, sweatshirts for casual getup. Break this rule.
A classic grey crew neck sweat over your shirt will revolutionize casual Friday, and, whether you agree with me or not, wearing cashmere to the gym is just too cool for words.
Adopt Unapologetic Cold-Weather Accessories :
A sensitive subject, as it might take you back to school days of being bullied for sporting leg warmers, dorky beanies and patterned scarves.
Guess what? Now that you’re all grown up, well put together and hopefully haven’t seen a school bully in a while, those same knitted winter staples your mum wrapped you up in will look great paired with your carefully curated attire.

In order to pull the look off with panache, stick to high quality materials and sensible colours /patterns (stay away from brights, Technicolor or silly motifs). A break from the skinny striped scarf alone will do you good.
Perhaps the greatest thing about winter is the freedom to explore extreme footwear, with your alibi provided by the weather.
Army boots, unusually thick lug soles, shoe-trainer hybrids – they’re all fair game. You need your soles to grip on the wet, icy pavement, to keep your ankles warm and such. Strong, confident boots that will give your brogues a break are a definite ‘yes’ for a winter pick-me-up.
So go welcome winter in style !
