Get inspired now…

Winter is well on its way, which means it's time for a major wardrobe overhaul. It feels as though the season of spiced candles falling leaves has barely started, though, rest assured, the bitterly colder months are just around the corner. Simultaneously staying warm and looking stylish isn't as easy as it looks - luckily we've selected some of our all-time favourite winter outfits to inspire your winter wish list. 

Hello! Fashion shares some seriously stylish ways to dress for the cold:

The It-girl boots


When it comes to knee-high boots, surely there is no fiercer style this season than Balenciaga's Cagoles. Nodding to the label's highly coveted handbag line, they are wildly versatile, pairing perfectly with an asymmetric denim midi skirt and a black polo neck for a look that exudes off-duty cool.

The two-tone jeans  

Olivia Palermo knows a thing or two about looking good, and her winter outfits never fail to impress. We adore her fresh two-tone jeans, expertly paired with a mesh lace top and a statement floral coat which transcends beyond the seasons.

The beautifully cut coat


A wool double-breasted neutral coat is a key player in any outerwear collection, and this season we're head over heels for soft charcoals and dove greys. Style with bulbous earrings and contrast toe cap shoes for a sense of timeless elegance.

The plush hat

No winter outfit is complete without a super cosy hat that will keep you in excellent company on the slopes as well as the streets. Pair it with matching wool wide-leg trousers for maximum comfort à la Nicole Poturalski.

The heavy-duty jacket


A thick shearling jacket is all you need to create the ultimate retro winter style moment – just ask Diane Batoukina. Style with dark wash flared jeans or split leather midi skirt for a truly 1970s feel.

The flattering neutral polo  


Everyone ought to own a classic polo jumper in a shade that flatters their skin tone for days when simplicity is key but looking put-together is a must. Super fans of the minimalist wardrobe can get even more wear out of this staple piece by styling it with a matching midi skirt for an effortless co-ord moment - take Mira Duma as a case in point.

The perennially chic headscarf


Nothing screams French-girl more than a nonchalantly tied headscarf, and this winter you need to update your accessory game accordingly. Plus, need some help navigating the blustery gales? Consider a silk headscarf your hair hero.
