After a few months now of cool weather, I’ve found I pretty much wear the same three outfits on rotation. Don’t get me wrong, rewearing styles is an overarching goal of mine, to make the most of my purchases and allow each piece a long life in my wardrobe. But the reason I was rewearing the exact same looks is that some key styles were missing from my winter capsule wardrobe. And with the sudden dip in temperatures over the weekend, I found myself in need of filling those gaps and revitalising my trusty cold-weather rotations. Thankfully, the high-street was one step ahead of me. 

When scouring the high street for new in styles there’s a few things to consider. First, does it have a place in my wardrobe? Finding a great piece is one thing, but it only becomes a worthwhile purchase if you know that it suits your personal aesthetic, and will therefore be something you choose to take the tags off of. Second, will it stand the test of time? With so many plans crammed into our diaries at this time of year, it can be easy to fall into the trap of buying things for a certain event or meeting. I like to consider if I’ll be able to wear it for other occasions and events, or even if I can pull it out next winter. Finally, I like to hunt for items that look well beyond their price tag. Not only is that great for my bank balance, but also means that they probably include some timeless, classic elements or clever design that will ensure I want to pull them out of my wardrobe time after time. Lucky for us, COS, Arket and H&M have come through with a plethora for polished styles that would have everyone second guessing their high street origins. 

Keep scrolling to explore the expensive-looking new-in pieces from COS, Arket and H&M that will bolster your outfit builds this winter. 

So easy to style, and in trending grey. 

It doesn’t get more classic or elevated than a chic, sculptural knit.

Pure shearling-lined comfort in a shoe (they also come in brown suede). 

There’s no setting where a satin skirt won’t make you look effortlessly put together. 

I have a feeling you’re going to be seeing a lot more of this bag. 

You can’t beat Arket’s offering of winter coats. 

Perfect with a pair of blue jeans.

Just add heels and be party ready in an instant. 

I’ve been counting down to winter to wear chic, cosy jackets like this. 

Such a stunning shade of pink.

The well-crafted simplicity makes these trousers look designer. 

I’m so into the boxy cut of this versatile jacket. 

A great pair of knee-high boots are simply timeless. 

Easy to dress up (or down) and so very cool. 

Easy to pair with the matching jacket when its mild outside.

I could rant all day about how much I love this leather coat but, but there simply isn’t enough time. 

Remember that COS bag? There’s a new style in nylon too.

Leather flats always help complete a polished outfit.

From the light-beige hue to the classic shape, this coat looks endlessly premium.

We can’t believe this isn’t designer either. 

I’m a big fan of the whole matching set. 

All this needs is a pair of tights and knee-high boots.

I can guarantee this will never date or age. 

The bold cuffs are a really nice detail. 

This’ll pair beautifully with workwear tailoring. 

The ideal transitional jacket. As chic as it gets. 

There’s no need to splash out on real leather when these look just as good, 

Simple but so effective. 

This calls for straight leg jeans and a pair of mules.

Tell me that these couldn’t pass for designer.

Taking you straight from the office to drinks. 

Such a good silhouette. 

If you told me this elegant skirt was designer, I’d believe you.
