After relatively mild weather, the recent cold snap means that winter has finally arrived. With this in mind, we thought we’d scour the high-street to show you some key pieces that will help you to stay stylish (and most importantly, warm) this winter. All of the pieces included in this guide come in at just under £30, so they’ll help you to stay on budget this January.*
If you’re looking for a new coat to get you through the colder months, check out the following styles:
Camel is a classic colour for all seasons and this coat from Primark would be great to bundle yourself up in this winter. Not only that, but the jacket is incredibly versatile, being the perfect thing to take you from a day in the office to a night out with friends. At just £25, what more could you ask for?
If you’re looking for something a little more practical, this hooded Puffa jacket from Primark is sure to do the trick. Its olive green design makes it bang on trend and its faux fur hood adds a chic detail. This coat surely isn’t going to break the bank at just £15!
The military trend is one that seems to come back into fashion pretty often, so it’s a safe bet if you’re looking to update your coat for this winter! This navy military coat is a steal at just £28 and its button detailing gives it a stylish finish.
If you’re a wild child at heart, why not rock this black biker jacket from Primark for the rest of the winter months? You won’t have to worry about dressing this jacket up with accessories, it’s already there for you in the zip detailing and faux fur hood. At just £28, this jacket could see you well into the spring months as well – what a bargain!
Layer it up
It’s not only important what you wear over your outfit, but under it as well. Here are a few suggestions of how you could layer up your look:
If you’re looking to add a touch of style to not only your winter wardrobe but your office wardrobe as well, then this navy waistcoat from Primark could be ideal. Although it’s not the warmest item, this waistcoat would look fab when paired over a jumper or shirt. At just £15, it could be a welcome addition to your winter wardrobe.
Polo necks have been having a revival over the last couple of years, and they’re set to be just as big this winter and spring. If you’re looking to try out a polo neck, you could go for something like this high neck grey jumper from Primark or opt for something less heavy like this striped polo neck from H&M. With both jumpers coming in at under £12, they certainly won’t cause trouble for your finances this January.
Whether you’re nipping out to the shops or meeting friends for lunch, you’ll want to reach for something cosy like this blanket wrap from F&F to complete your outfit. You’d be able to wear this simply over a jumper and jeans or layer it up under a tailored coat. If there’s one thing that you should purchase to update your winter style, this is a good option – and it’s great value at just £16!
