This winter’s styles offer something for everyone. Whether you’re into classic lines that look stylish for years or the latest off-the-wall statements, there are plenty of new fashion items that are bound to excite. One thing is certain, this winter isn’t drab or dull. Wondering what’s in store? Save yourself from buying dozens of fashion mags and get the lowdown right here!
1. Naturals to Keep You Cosy
Top of the pops this season are natural materials and practical yet elegant styling that will stand the test of time. From comfy at-home wear like cashmere slippers to statement leather jackets and coats, quality counts. Of course, there are plenty of cheap faux knockoffs, but it’s really worth investing in the longer-term since this season’s top finds are keepers that combine great looks with durability.
2. Let it Shine
Bling is back! Bedazzle them with sequin-encrusted dresses and tops or pick fabrics with a gleam of their own. Velvet fits the bill, and if the luxurious texture of this fabric has always beguiled you, then now’s the time to stock up! For those who love to buck the system and are looking for something a little more edgy, corsets are still all the range as are latex leggings with a look that’s reminiscent of fetishwear-gone-mainstream.
3. Green is Huge
While the typical winter staples in red, black, grey and brown are certainly to be seen, shades of green will be among the most prominent colours for this winter. It’s been a long time coming, so if green is among your favourite colours, you should find plenty of variety on offer in your favourite stores.
4. Electric Hues Steal the Show
Along with all the shine, bright, electric shades will help you to stand out for the crowd. Choose dare-to-wear, form-fitting tops featuring a mixture of intense colours to brighten up dull winter days and look out for shoes to match – or deliberately mismatch – in line with the next fashion trend on our list.
5. Mismatched by Design
You can get away with just about anything this winter – as long as it looks like you’re making a deliberate statement instead of just getting dressed by guess. Clash your colours boldly, break all the rules! Now’s your chance to have fun with a current aesthetic that your grandma would certainly not approve of!
6. Maxi Skirts
Good news for winter! Maxi skirts are back! Look on-trend while hiding your warmest, but least-sexy, winter woollies beneath the folds of long skirts and dresses. Team it all up with the ever-present winter boots, and nobody is going to know just how warm and comfy you are: perfect for that chilly morning commute.
7. Bright Faux Fur
Expect to see faux fur that screams “faux” everywhere you go. Get a shrek-shade fur coat or keep it low-key with fur trims and linings. Street style meets couture in a riot of furry favourites that combine warmth with the latest in style. This trend isn’t going away anytime soon, so don’t be afraid of looking dated for the next few winters to come.
And a Few More
Puffer jackets padded out with down are still in, but they aren’t the blimp-like creations we saw last year. There’s a sleeker aesthetic for 2022. Chunky boots are definitely in style, and just to confuse everyone, cutouts and lots of skin are gracing evening wear this winter. Just remember to take your faux fur along to cover up when you’re in the cold! Whatever you buy, remember to shop sustainably. Choose quality, and don’t buy anything you won’t wear next year. It’s the smart way to go.
