Winter has finally come to an end, so I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on my winter wardrobe before everything gets put away again until next year. I thought it would be a good idea to show you the items of clothing I have loved this winter. I am very unadventurous when it comes to dressing for the winter- I pretty much just wear jeans, a jumper and a coat every day…as long as I’m not cold, I’m happy!
What have you been wearing this winter?
This coat is the one I have been wearing all winter (and all of the last winter as well!). I bought it from New Look in the petite section; I remember it cost £45. Parka coats have been fashionable for a long time now, but this is my first one. I remember trying them on in shops before, but they never seemed to fit right, and were too long. That was until I found this one in New Look in the petite range- it’s perfect! The hood came with a removable fur trim; I took it off though because it becomes matted in the rain.
I am obsessed with boots; I enjoy wearing all the different styles. I got these boots from Shoe Zone last year for £14.99 (bargain!), they are still available here. My most worn pair of boots are embarrassingly too scruffy to show, but these come a close second. I can’t walk in high-heeled shoes/boots unless the heel is chunky like these. I wear these mostly with leggings because they tuck into the boot nicely, and they go with every outfit.
I started shopping in Jack Wills around 6 months ago, previously, I had never even stepped foot through the door. Yes, their clothing is expensive compared to some other brands, but their sale prices cannot be missed. I bought this jumper a few month ago in the sale for £23 (RRP £59.95). This jumper is very thick and warm, and adds a pop of colour to your winter wardrobe.
The Jumper Dress
The next item is a jumper dress from Next, I bought it in the January sales when I went on a shopping trip to Cambridge. This dress is from their petite range, so it is the perfect length for me. My favourite way to wear this is with a leather jacket, black leggings and chunky boots- shown below. I just love the blush pink colour and the unique design of it. I bought it for £12, the original price was £30. I wore this outfit when I was going out for lunch with my family.
The Comfy Jumper
The final item is probably my favourite! I got this jumper from Joules; I remember trying this on in store when it wasn’t on offer (I never buy anything full price, so I waited for the sale). Joules have an excellent outlet on eBay where they sell their discounted clothing; I bought this jumper for £20 from there. I love the colour of this jumper; it is a camel colour which goes nicely with jeans. It is oversized in style, so it is very comfortable to wear. It washes well as it’s not made from wool.
