January is not the easiest month. Stuffed from Christmas we are all now about 90% Christmas dinner and alcohol, and 10% human. This doesn’t leave much room for experimentation and inspiration when it comes to our wardrobes. The perfect way to cut down your morning getting ready time and give yourself some extra time to kick back and relax without the added dress of making yourself late for work. With the perfect winter staples you can create some key looks that mean less thinking about what to wear every morning and more time to think about how you’re going to slay the day and take on the New Year.
Here are our top picks for your winter capsule wardrobe.
The little Black jumper dress
You can’t go wrong with a LBD all year round, but when it comes to the colder months you can double your LBD up as a cosy winter essential if it’s knitwear.
This jumper dress is unreal-soft and figure hugging. If you’re feeling shy go for an oversized knit and pair with a belt around the waist to give that hour glass look.
The faux fur teddy coat
How many years have the queens of fashion been donning the oversized fur coat? Now that fur is now faux and that expensive vogue style has become affordable, is there really any excuse to not look like you rule the world in your cosy winter coat? Pair with some sunnies for chic level 100.
Winter doesn’t mean you need to cast aside your beautiful dresses. With a midi or maxi dress, you can layer up with tights underneath. Add some trusty ankle boots to finish off the look. The fabric of the skirt will barricade the wind on your legs, keeping all the chills out and all the warmth in. A bonus cosy tip is to wear a roll neck top underneath to keep your neck warm and layer up.
The essential Knit
Goes perfectly over your dress and under your faux fur coat, or paired with some comfy checked trousers. If you're feeling brave then get a bright colour to really brighten up the January blues.
Some high-waist checked trousers
Wear with some tights underneath for those extra cold days. With an oversized knit on top or tucked in you can wear checked trousers with everything and they always look 100% fashion first.
