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 until next year. I thought it would be a good idea to show you my most worn clothing items from the 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! I have recently got two new favourite brands for winter clothing, Joules and Jack Wills- you will see them featured in this post.
This is the coat I have been wearing all winter, and all of 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, until I saw this petite one and instantly knew it would be perfect for me. The hood came with a removable fur trim, I took it 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. These are actually my second most worn pair, my most worn ones are far too scruffy to show! I can’t walk in high-heeled shoes/boots unless the heel is chunky like these ones. 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 before then I had never stepped foot through the door. Yes, their clothing is expensive compared to some other brands, but their sale prices can not be missed: I bought this jumper a few month a go in the sale for £23 (RRP £59.95). This jumper is very thick and warm and adds a pop of colour into your winter wardrobe.
The next item is a jumper dress from Next: I bought it in the January sales when I went on a trip to Cambridge after Christmas this year. Next have a petite range which is ideal for me so this dress is the perfect length for me. My favourite way to wear this is with a leather jacket, black leggings and chunky boots as 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 family.
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 a very good 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 is very comfortable to wear. It washes well as it’s not made from wool.
