Tailoring is a great choice if you’re looking for a polished winter look. Just add a wool coat for extra warmth.
It can be all too easy when temperatures drop to a certain (read: ice cold) level to lean on the same outfits you have for the past few years, huddling up in neutral knitwear and the same black ankle boots. While you can’t beat a classic, if you’re looking for some new winter combinations, the likes of Grece Ghanem, Lucy Williams and more have been wearing a number of practical yet interesting looks you too will be able to wear on repeat until spring.
Many of these key items you’ll already own, such as roll-necks and classic blazers, but you can make your autumn/winter wardrobe more 2023 with cream boots, teddy coats and leather trousers. Just because you have to make sensible choices doesn’t mean you have to spend the next three months in boring and unadventurous outfits.
