I don’t really do a lot of fashion posts because although I love buying clothes (who doesn’t) I don’t see myself as very fashionable but I did my first one last month and I enjoyed it so here it another wishlist style post.
December was pretty mild compared to previous years so I knew that the start of this year was going to be pretty cold which is why I thought I’d focus on layering. For anyone who knows me irl you’ll know that my style doesn’t vary much between summer and winter other than swapping tights for leggings and maybe adding an extra cardigan so layers are the perfect thing for me in the Winter.A lot of wintery items seem to be on the sale at the moment which is absolutely amazing, hopefully these things will all still be in stock if you want to have a look at them.
I have so many black items of clothing that I really want a coat which is a little less monochrome. Rust browns and burgundy’s are perfect wintery colours and I found this beautiful coat from River Island. Today I just discovered that there is genuinely an item called a coatigan, how amazing is that word?! A combo cardigan and coat which makes me super excited, and even better this beautiful grey and black one is only £28 from Next.
Being a slightly larger girl means that Waterfall jackets/ cardigans are quite a flattering fit as I can pull them around me and this longer length light jacket from Boohoo is perfect to layer over a cardigan or jacket. The royal blue colour also breaks up from monochrome outfits which I am super at always wearing! Fine knit chiffon tops are something I love to wear as they’re really comfy and this Navy fine knit top from New Look would look wonderful underneath a thick cardigan and funky jacket.
With all those layers you obviously need a lovely pair of boots. These black ankle boots from Brantano are perfect. They have a lovely woven pattern on the side and will match in with any outfit. Even better the boots are only £29 in the sale, so a complete bargain.
What are your favourite layers to wear in the winter?
