A TRENCH COAT

What better way to stay warm this winter than with a classic trench coat, since it seems to make a come back every season.  The trench can take wearers from crisp autumn nights to cool winter mornings, as it’s done for Gigi Hadid. Pair it with your favourite pair of jeans or leggings, with a fitted knit or blouse and a pair of boots. It’s a great investment for your wardrobe and perfect for everyday style.

LACE-UP ANKLE BOOTS

Add a pair of ’90s-inspired lace-up combat boots to your outfit and you’ll be sure to set the trend, because this season is all about the ankle boot. Choose a pair with a round or pointy toe and let your feet do all the talking, à la Kendall Jenner. But just remember, when you wear a pair of boots this bold, you don’t have to push the envelope too much with the rest of your outfit.

THE KNIT SWEATER

Yes, every fashion stylist is obsessed with the chunky, oversized knit sweater. And for good reason too. The knit works with everything—a pair of broken-in boyfriend jeans on the weekend, tailored trousers for the office, or pleated, feminine skirt for a night on the town. The knit, no matter the colour, will more than earn its keep this season.

LEATHER PANTS

Whether you choose to get a pair of real leather or PU leather pants doesn’t phase us, so long as you have a pair in your closet. In fact, leather or faux leather is always a winner in winter, and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Pair your pants with a parka jacket and flat boots and you’ll be warm and stylish throughout the day.

WIDE BRIM HAT

Say goodbye to your beanies and make a statement this year with a dramatic wide-brim hat – this is street style at its best. Not only will it add a bit of spunk to your look but it pairs well with chinos, skinny jeans, a tailored shirt and a pair of brogues. So whether you’re doing a bit of retail therapy or sipping on hot chocolate at weekend brunch, this is the hat you should be wearing.

THE WHITE BUTTON-UP SHIRT

There are few wardrobe essentials that we lean on more than the classic white button-up shirt. It’s the real deal: The true wear-anywhere closet staple. In crisp cotton or soft silk, its tailored shape brings elegance to distressed denim and conservative suiting alike, like Blake Lively. Tuck your shirt into a high-waist skirt and finish it off with a waist belt, or opt to wear it under a fitted jersey and tailored trousers.

THE POLO NECK

This season hails the return of the classic, cozy silhouette and for good reason too. Not only is it an every day staple for winter and will keep us warm throughout, but also serves as an easy layering piece to wear on its own or under a cropped leather jacket or wool coat.

KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

As we all know, tall boots serve two purposes in the frigid winter season: to give us extra coverage and to add a dose of sex appeal to your look. Worn with tights and a longish pencil skirt, knee-high boots are totally office-appropriate (and will keep your legs warm). Plus, the height is a perfect compromise for those times you’re feeling a little sassy, just look at Natalie Portman.
