Winter is coming – and although it’ll probably be a bit less miserable than Game of Thrones, you can bet your woollen mittens it’ll be just as chilly.
Have you ever tried staying fashionable during the cold snap? Head to the wrong store and it’s like trying to shave a baboon with caffeine shampoo running through its veins. Try as you might, a lot of winter clothing is frumpy, lumpy and less fashionable than Terry Wogan.
But that’s not always the case. Without having to shell out a small fortune, you can track down the perfect outfit for the chilly season.
So don your winter gloves and take a look at our fashion predictions for this winter.
Wrap up in style
When you’re braving the elements, your winter coat is the focal point of your outfit. It’s got to be thick, cosy – and at the height of fashion.
Your coat will most likely be the most expensive piece of clothing in your outfit, so you’ve got to get the right style.
For our money, clothing brand Very has amassed a fab range of winter coats, with a selection of padded coats available for around £60. A typical padded coat comes with a double zip and a stunning range of colours that could match any outfit.
Better in the 80s
The 90s styles of Clueless might have dominated the summer (just take a look at Iggy Azalea for proof of that), but autumn and winter are taking a new turn – it’s time to get back to the big hair and leather jackets of the 80s!
Those of you in the know will already be pulling your pastel shades from the wardrobe and shoving on your wayfarers. But those of you creating an outfit might want to look to the warm attire of The Breakfast Club’s Mollie Ringwald and other 80s icons for perfect inspiration.
There’s nothing like wearing something made from the sweat of your brow. It’s like having a child you’ve raised who you can show off to your friends.
And what better way to start a craft hobby than to knit a scarf and gloves for the great cold outdoors?
Knitting materials are cheaper than hand crafted scarves from stores and (provided you’re a dab hand at knitting) give you the opportunity to make an item perfectly suited to the rest of your wardrobe.
Be sure to choose colours that won’t clash with your outfits and make sure your patterns are tight and neat.
