The change in the weather tells us winter is here, with that unmistakable chill in the air signalling that it’s time to dust of our winter coats. From party season to lazy weekends, countryside escapes and nights out, this is a busy season for us and our wardrobes.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect party dress or simply some inspiration for how to update your look, take your style cues from our ultimate guide to the season.

Do: Layer up
Winter means layering and plenty of opportunity for updating your knitwear collection. Cater to the chillier weather with cosy pieces you can’t wait to wear every day. A chenille jumper brings texture, warmth and style, creating the perfect layering piece.
Don’t: Shy away from colour
Don’t confine yourself to a darker palette for the colder months. A pop of colour will enliven your wardrobe and go against the grain with statement-making results. This soft amber tone couples with dainty lace for a pretty, eye-catching dress fit for work and beyond.
Do: Add a touch of sparkle
It is party season, after all. We’re drawn to metallic tones this winter for a modern approach to party dressing. Silver trousers offer a contemporary take for those seeking an alternative to your typical party dress. Dressed down with a cosy knit or paired with a sheer lace top for the evening, these jersey trousers are a hit.
Don’t: Forget comfort
In between the parties, Christmas shopping and general festive cheer, winter hibernation shouldn’t be forgotten. Ensure that your off-duty wardrobe is at the ready for lazy days spent inside. Grey jersey pieces with a mottled finish promise the ultimate in comfort and will become your fail-safe pieces of choice for a well-earned rest.
Do: Find the perfect coat
It’s the piece that you’ll wear the most this season, so don’t take this decision lightly. A crisp winter’s day calls for the style to match, and we love this fresh cream coat for adding a brighter finish to outfits. The classic check pattern running throughout is another winter icon, combining with a wool blend and a relaxed fit for a cosy coat you’ll never want to take off.
Don’t: Forget your florals
Whatever the season, floral prints have a place in our hearts (and our wardrobes). This winter we’re favouring an abstract floral with a sketch-like, brushed quality. A bold purple hue complements our aim to champion winter brights, bringing a rich finish to the pattern. Opt for the tie neck top for work or the mid-length dress for the office party.
Do: Discover the one-piece wonder
As we said, party season spells a busy period for your wardrobe. Swap dresses for one-piece style in a sleek jumpsuit. Our latest collection is filled with texture in the form of black velvet, our go-to for a luxuriant finish throughout the season. This lightly tailored jumpsuit has a one-shoulder silhouette, providing effortless glamour.
