Style Advisor: How To Wear Winter's Key Pieces

We’re moving headlong into winter and it’s time to meet your staple AW18 wardrobe pieces. From the season’s It-bags to the boot everyone was wearing at fashion week, here’s how to get through the colder months in style.

THE NEW COWBOY BOOTS

Looking for a statement shoe? Look no further than a pair of cowboy boots. Seen on every fashion editor from New York to Milan, we’ll be wearing our Fendi numbers with cropped trousers and a retro track top.

THE CHECKED PIECE

Team classic checks with modern, sports-inspired pieces for a contemporary look that channels British heritage. This combination hits the sweet spot between Sloane chic and sportswear cool – style that isn’t too precious.

THE IT BAG

Straight from the runways of the world’s most feted fashion houses, these bags have got that much-coveted ‘wow’ factor. Fendi’s iconic Kan I is reimagined in shearling for AW whilst Gucci look to sparkling crystals and the animal kingdom to give their classic leather shoulder bag a touch of glamour.

THE ANIMAL PRINT OVERCOAT

Animal print has always been on our radar, but this season we’re wild for it. Despite being a pattern and sometimes colour-heavy, it’s incredibly versatile and is more akin to a neutral than a print. Dolce & Gabbana have epitomised the trend with their decadent faux fur coat.
