It's easy to give up when the weather gets cold.
Suddenly, style must be set aside in favour of Ugg boots, hooded sweatshirts and shapeless long-sleeved tops - anything to ward off the chills!
But, winter need not be a dreary fog in fifty shades of grey; the colder seasons are just another opportunity to flaunt your inner fashionista with a whole new range of style possibilities!
By picking up a few key winter-remixed wardrobe must-haves, you can make it through the season without breaking a sweat. Check out out five winter fashion essentials:
The Cardigan - Oversized Quality
The humble cardigan is a year-round cover-up staple, but when winter comes knocking, you're going to need to crank it up a notch.
Go oversized, with a slouchy, long and comfy style in a neutral colour to go over anything. But now's the time to invest in the real deal: you can get away with acrylics in spring, but a beautiful merino cardi, like this Moochi style, will keep you seriously cosy.
Balance out the androgynous proportions of your top half with skinny jeans or leather leggings, a feminine lace up boot and this stunning soft blue Michael Kors shoulder bag.
The Sweater - Chunky Colour
For winter, the sweater gets serious - but that doesn't mean it has to get boring. A comfy, chunky knit with a warm, rich statement colour will be on high rotation throughout the season, offering a much-needed pop over dresses, jeans, or skirts.
The Skirt - Rigid and Racy
Flouncy skirts can take the backseat in winter, but the skirt still has its place. Pick out a summer-cool style in a more rigid, warmer fabric, like wool or leather. Paired with stockings and a knit, or a long coat and heels, you can still be sexy even in the wind and rain!
Textured ankle boots are the perfect match with this slick leather skirt, while this Nine West python tote offers a print hit in the same raw, animal theme. Don't forget those shades either; squinting in the winter glare is never glamorous!
The Blazer - Bigger the Bolder the Better
Cute cropped blazers belong back in summer. For winter, go with an oversized style with a bold print.
A statement all in itself, the big blazer is a great choice to throw on for work to keep you toasty and trendy - complete with a long scarf for the commute!
The Jacket - Practically Sweet
Unlike other seasons when you might rock a jacket just for the fun of it - in winter, you might actually need something that works.
Get smart and prepare yourself for sudden downpours with a chic parka that can go anywhere and look great with anything! This black and white striped pac-a-parka from Asos is perfect to keep tucked in your handbag for a totally cute cover up.
This must-have works just as well with monochrome looks as it does with colourful outfits. Land somewhere in the middle with this sweet, neutral Kardashian Kollection Valley gathered bowling bag in pink and charming printed ballet flats.
