Whether we want to admit it or not, winter is just around the corner and that means that it’s time to bid adieu to summer dresses, shorts and sandals and embrace this chilly season. Luckily for men and women alike, with many ladies and men’s jackets hitting British stores, we can find a way to stay warm and stay fashionable all at once.
While most of us wish that summer would go on forever and the warm sun could always be at our beck and call, it doesn’t mean that we have to look at winter as a time in which we are stuck inside due to the cold temperatures that take hold of Britain.
Dressing for the weather is of course very important. In order to ensure that we can stay healthy and avoid falling victim to a nasty cold, we must be sure to dress warmly and keep ourselves covered.
British style is deeply influenced by the seasons, and if any country manages to create classic pieces for colder days it is ours.
We all know that it can be a great deal of fun to watch and see what each clothing company develops for their new seasonal collections, and it’s no different for winter than it is for summer.
Dressing for winter is all about balancing practicality with style. You’ll want to layer up of course, but this doesn’t mean you have to bulk yourself up to the point where you simply look silly!
Girls; why not try putting together a nice pair of trousers with a warm shirt topped with one of the many ladies’ cardigans available in stores and online? These classic sweaters are great because not only will they keep you warm, they can complement most outfits. So, when purchasing them try to maximise your options by choosing neutral colours that will match all the pieces you already have in your wardrobe.
Whether you are a man or a woman, you will find that the item of clothing you will be using most during your time outside will be your winter coat. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are going; whether it’s commuting to work or university, running errands or doing any odd thing in between, you’ll need to keep yourself warm and toasty while doing so.
Each season, new styles of jackets are released, so whether you are looking for a classic pea coat to hold you on the way to university or looking for a more pronounced city coat to keep you warm while heading to the office, you’ll find that the perfect coat is waiting for you. While we often think of black jackets as traditional and practical items of clothing, don’t be afraid to add a little more colour into your wardrobe.
Furthermore, for the cold winter days when it’s simply best to sit at home with your friends and family and enjoy the warmth, why not indulge in casual British luxury? Both ladies and men’s sweatshirts are comfortable options for you to throw on in the comfort of your own home.
Another thing about winter that we can look forward to is accessorising our new outfits with lovely extra bits.
In the summer, it is a bit distressing to notice so many people going around without pretty scarves around their necks to keep themselves warm. A scarf can really bring new life to an old outfit, and considering we come from a nation that loves to wear them, it’s nice to know that we’ll be able to see more of these lovely bits being sold in clothing shops and online.
Aside from scarves, another great accessory that will keep us warm is a solid pair of gloves. Whether you’re a burly man looking for the biggest and puffiest set of warms to put on your mitts, or if you’re a lady looking for a sleek set of leather gloves, you’ll find that you have many options.
Finishing your winter outfit from head to toe, it’s always a good idea to invest in a pair of boots to keep your legs and feet warm during your time outside. And while you’re at it, you might as well invest in a few pairs of wool socks to make things even better for your limbs.
Winter style will literally have you covered, but there’s no reason why you can’t be kept safe from the cold while still looking rather regal. While we all seem to love traditional neutral and dark colours at this time of year, don’t be afraid to incorporate an extra bit of colour into your outfits. Whether it’s vying for a bright coat or even a bold scarf, you’ll find that little things like this will really help you to stand out and express your individuality even more.
And even if you’re not willing to go down the main road to choose which of the many ladies jackets available in stores is best for you, you’ll find that you can purchase this season’s coat online. Then, once you are sorted out, you will be able to brave the cold weather and show it that when it comes to style, you’ve got the upper hand.
Having style is all about seeing what is out there and available and making it your own. There are so many great pieces of clothing that are hitting British stores now, so allow yourself the chance to get excited by it all!
Yes, summer came and went as fast as a breeze, but don’t let yourself get too upset by this. It’s nice to know that we can now indulge in the fact that a new season means new opportunities to spruce up our wardrobes and fill them with beautiful new pieces. Even though winter is roaring around the corner, you can roar right back at it and hit the streets in style in fantastically stylish warm clothing.
