Fireworks, bonfire nights and festive food markets - it's officially our favourite time of the year. But with a turn in seasons comes cooler climates and of course, the weather-appropriate wardrobe update.
From comforting cuts to cold-weather saviours and statement party styles, take a lesson in dressing ahead of winter from our very own editors.
LESSON 1. Cold-proofing is key
Prepare, or prepare to fail - nobody wants to be the one left shivering around the bonfire. Wrap up this winter in a wear-forever faux fur coat, equal parts chic and cosy.
LESSON 2. Be evening-ready at all times
With endless nights and festivities on the horizon, your social calendar will be fast to fill up. Keep boardroom-to-bar in mind when selecting your office attire - who knows what the evening might hold?
LESSON 3. Keep extra layers on standby
We all know the feeling: a hot, sweaty mess on the commute and cold as soon as the open air hits. Keep layering essentials close to hand wherever possible - we promise you'll be thanking us later.
LESSON 4. Everybody needs a little black jumpsuit
As iconic in our books as the faithful LBD, the cool-girl alternative is just as effortless and dare we say it, twice as stylish. Don't fear the one-piece - it's bailed us out of some of the worst what-to-wear conundrums.
LESSON 5. Party season isn't all garish sequins
When it comes to party season, we'll be the first to admit that subtlety isn't always our strong suit. This year, we're opting for understated glamour from shimmering glitter details to elegant festive prints.
Meet you on the dancefloor.
