Style Advisor: How To Style Out The Winter Blues

Style Advisor: How To Style Out The Winter Blues

The clue is in the name, but the winter blues are no joke. Christmas is a distant memory, the twinkling lights fading into long, dark February nights that never.seem.to.end. It’s cold, it’s wet, and you’re lucky if your commute doesn’t involve being whipped around by the harsh North wind with a face full of sleet. There is no more appropriate time to bring in the big guns, by way of a little retail therapy. As a wise woman once said, there’s no such thing as the wrong weather, just the wrong clothes. And we couldn’t agree more. Here’s our guide to styling out the winter blues with all the right pieces.

PRINT BIG

Think big, print big. Don’t let the bad weather impede your bright sartorial imagination. A colourful representation of fun and happiness on your clothing, pattern is one of our favourite ways to cheer up our winter wardrobes. This season, favourites include Valentino’s patchwork leather bags and mesmerising optical prints.

GET OUT MORE

The temptation is to stay in, but getting out will instantly lift your mood, especially when you’re dressed to kill and you’ve got your crew in tow. Resist the sofa and strap yourself into a pair of Valentino's Rockstud heels and a dramatic Alexandre Vauthier dress.

A FASHION DISTRACITON

A little trick my mother taught me. When you’re feeling low, a bit of a ‘fashion distraction’ is guaranteed to make you feel better. Get your fix whatever the weather with luxe leather accessories by Saint Laurent and Gucci’s statement puffer – both warm and ultra-stylish.

COMFORT IS KEY

When all you want to do is stay at home wrapped in your duvet, the second-best thing to do is to go out wearing the most comfortable clothes you can find. Winter warmers from Burberry and trainers by Jimmy Choo will make stepping out into the cold that much more bearable. Like a hug from your wardrobe.
