Keep calm while looking cool with these winter fashion trends

We have composed a list of things to keep you looking fresh and stylish as we enter 2023 from bold, oversized blazers to Brighton-based boots you can buy from independent stores.

Keep warm under a gilet

Personally, I have always found myself asking ‘how warm can you really keep without sleeves?’ when it comes to gilets. But this year it seems like everyone I know is after a gilet (including myself), and if not functional, they look so cool. You can throw on as many layers as possible; the fact that it doesn’t have sleeves means there is always room for one more layer. You can get long ones, short ones, hooded gilets, gilets with pockets; Wowcher even has an electric heated gilet! Farmer chic is in this winter.

Over-sized blazers

Why wear a jacket when you can make your outfit extra sophisticated with an oversized blazer? Adding a blazer on top of your outfit can make it look so much more constructed, and enables the transition from office to office party to be simple. Keep your blazer oversized and you can fit a hoodie underneath to take smart casual to a new level.

Style your scarf

Gone are the days where a scarf is just to keep you warm, scarves can be used to add colour and pattern to any boring outfit. From chunky scarves to thin knitted scarves, they can make any outfit fun. For streetwear flair, wrap or pull your scarf over your head to double it up as a hat and hood. Winter accessories are now statement pieces as I have already seen people rocking fluffy bucket hats and earmuffs to keep warm while looking cool.

It’s in the shoes…
