This season I’ve been on the hunt for new ways to freshen up my wardrobe. Uninterested in overhauling, or starting from scratch, I’m instead aiming to revitalise my rotation with the help of some clever styling tricks.

Taking my resolution to the office I sought expertise from the Who What Wear team, who, armed with years of experience in the fashion industry, guided me towards the “Mirroring Method”. The team suggested I try my hand at accessorising with tonal layers. Think pops of red or splashes of brown in the form of vibrant socks and a matching bag, or a thick scarf that coordinates with a tonal shoe. 

Julie perfectly demonstrates The Mirroring Method in this look. 

Low effort, high impact, the styling trick relies on a few tonal accessories that you style together to create a coherent pop of colour throughout your outfit. A connect-the-dots type scenario. Begin with a neutral base and layer on matching accessories and add ons (such as a jumper knotted around the shoulders) for an easy outfit that will feel put-together and right on trend. 

Dubbed by the Who What Wear team as the “mirroring method”, we’ve already spotted a few of our favourite influencers try their hand at the trend. Whilst many have experimented with pops of red and burgundy, the mirroring method looks chic no matter what colours you choose to style. If you’re interested in picking up on the easiest styling trick I’ve seen for months, read on to discover how we’re styling the mirroring method this winter.

Style Notes: The deep winter shade look chic layered over black, brown or green. Shop a shiny leather good and style with a burgundy scarf or a dark burgundy sock.

This comfortable wool jumper also comes in three other colours.

Style with brown trainers or a black leather loafer.

The deep merlot shade is ideal for winter styling.

Style Notes: On dark winter days nothing looks fresher than bright pop of cream.

Pull your hair back in style or wear this silk bandana tied around your neck.

The dainty button details elevate the feel of this romantic silk blouse.

Style with denim or wear with grey wide-leg trousers.

Style Notes: If we’re talking neutrals, my favourite has to be camel. Working so well with warm browns and beiges, this easy-to-wear colour is so easy to slot into a capsule wardrobe.

This compact cross-body is ideal for daily styling.

Style with the matching blazer or wear with a fresh white tee.

Style on top beige knitted dress, or wear over light-wash jeans.

Style Notes: The brown colour trend has been ramping up this winter. Style with cool peach shades, or opt for a tonal look and wear with light browns and creams.

Brown leather goes so well with dark wash denim.

These sleek knee high boots are the the top of my wish list.

This also comes in black leather and olive.

Style Notes: Grey socks and tights are trending this season. Style with a matching grey jacket or a draping grey scarf.

Cropped jackets are high-waisted jeans are a match made in fashion heaven.

Style with a black maxi dress, or dress up a leather skirt.

January weather calls for cosy wool scarves.

Style Notes: Classic black accessories will never go out of style. Layer them together for a coordinated look that feels chic and sophisticated in equal parts.

A black clutch bag is a wardrobe staple you’ll come back to time and again.

Style your leather loafers with a vibrant sock or thick wool tights.

A classic black belt will finesse any casual look.
