I am not a lover of Winter, I hate the cold, and sometimes struggle with what to wear. Whereas my summer wardrobe is pretty extensive, with dresses, tops, skirts, shorts and an array of clothes to choose from. With that in mind I have been checking out the shops and considering what would be my essential items that will get me through the next few months.
So.. the following list comprises key items that will add to your wardrobe, and introduce some of the on trend looks for Winter.
- Winter Coat - blanket wrap coat or the over sized coat are big news this winter, as is the Parka, featured a couple of weeks ago.
- Dress - knee length chunky knit or printed dresses are very in right now.
- Joggers/track-pants - I don't mean your standard workout gear, more the dressier day-time causal pant.
- Statement knit - think something sparkly, a statement colour - jewel colours are big news, or a roll neck, cowl neck or funnel neck.
- Distressed jeans - the boyfriend slouchy jean or skinny jeans are still big news but with that old worn look to them.
- Tops - plum, olive, stripes and grey are all go to colours this winter.
Also check out my Accessories and Shoes pages for those Winter Trends.
Over the next few weeks I will feature a different item from this list, starting this week with Statement Knits, only because I have recently seen some lovely Knits in the shops and I don't want you all to miss out!
As mentioned previously there is lots of lovely knitwear out there. Common trends for knitwear this Winter seem to be;
- Sparkle - sequins or gold/silver thread or embroidery.
- Animal print
- Different necklines, the cowl neck here and even the cape look, but there are also funnel necks, and roll necks.
- The over sized statement knit, either very chunky or over sized to the point of a tunic look.
