Dressing For Winter, The Ultimate Guide
As of this week, it is safe to say that there will be no avoiding it. Yes - Winter is officially here.
The time has come to put away our sandals and our light summer shorts only to pull out everything that was keeping us warm last year. But this is where we get a little stuck. What were we wearing last winter? Is it still relevant?
To help us along, we are looking to the street's most stylish for inspiration. Click through to find our ultimate street style guide to getting through the worst of winter.
1. Pair Oversized Knits with Flowing A-Line Skirts
Although summer is a long way off, we do have a spot of good news. This is a trick that allows a little crossing over in your Summer Winter wardrobes allowing you to make the most of everything you own. Pairing your summery long skirts with an oversized knit is all about proportions and is so easy to achieve. Great with a slipper, loafer or boot, its a look anyone can try.

2. Accessorise With Statement Socks
This was one of the most popular trends throughout last fashion month. Fishnet socks have become a very popular contender in this area however, don't be discouraged if this 80s accessory just isn't for you. There are an abundance of styles making it easy to work this simple and ultra comfortable extra into your wardrobe. Wear them with heels, boots, loafers or enclosed slides to add a touch of extra flair to your look while keeping your toes toasty warm.

3. Play With Texture
One of our favourite things about winter is that we get to rug up in the coziest textures around. Shearling is one of our favourites among velvet, suede and super soft leathers.

4. Keep Warm In Skirts With Knee High Boots
Yet another great way to increase the wearability of your entire wardrobe, this trick isn't new but certainly one that will remain relevant this season. A little difficult to get right, we suggest choosing a skirt that is longer in length and pairing it with a boot with a little room around the knee.
