A WINTER STYLE GUIDE IN ASSOCIATION WITH WALLISPosted on 2016-12-01
Winter brings with it a host of unique style propositions. From Christmas parties to family get-togethers and frosty outdoor activities, the season can begin to feel like a style challenge with all it throws at you. Nevertheless, staying chic throughout is simple with our winter style guide. Teaming up with Wallis, we’ve put together a fashion-forward, season appropriate edit of outfits for every winter event. Cosy knits, elegant sparkling dresses and style-focused separates are all on the cards, so you can embrace everything AW16 has to offer.
A Winter Walk
Not only are padded coats the perfect choice for sub-zero temperatures but they’re top of the fashion charts, ticking all of the boxes for this season’s cosy chic trend. To further the catwalk-inspired theme and double up on key pieces for AW16, pair your coat with a statement knit; bold stripes and geometric shapes are high on the agenda. Keep the rest of your outfit practical yet chic with a pair of flat ankle boots and opt for dark wash straight leg jeans to capture denim’s newest silhouette.
A Christmas Party
Decadence and midnight glamour are the key ingredients this party season. To tap into the luxury of the season, swathe yourself in embroidered lace in timeless black or rich berry tones. A dress with a shorter hemline will balance the sumptuousness of the fabric with a dose of current season wearability, updating your look with a modern twist without losing the elegance. Oversized statement earrings and a boxy clutch will complement the mix of classic refinement and on-trend details.
Dressing for Christmas Day calls for a deft fusion of sophistication and comfort. Separates provide just the right amount of versatility to create an outfit that looks glamorous but feels comfortable all day, from presents to the big lunch to after dinner drinks. Sidestep fitted silhouettes and instead opt for a floaty, flared sleeve top that echoes this season’s pared down elegance. Pair your party top with satin tapered trousers for a sleek line and ground your look with pointed flats that will keep you going throughout all the festivities.
