As we head into the colder months of the year, it is time to look at the fashion staples that will see us through the autumn and winter fashion seasons as well as the weather! Key items of essential women’s wear focus on style and practicality that will help keep you warm AND ensure you keep your fashion glow!
Jump for joy
Knitwear has a varied history and has come a long way since it formed mainly practical garments worn originally by fishermen to keep them warm and dry. Embraced by the fashion world for around 100 years, no-one can resist a cozy jumper, and they come in all shapes and sizes from oversized, slouch, and turtleneck and in all kinds of textures and patterns from casual wear to smart. Don’t forget: knitwear also includes cardigans and jumper dresses that are available from wholesale clothing too!
Jeans are practically the most practical item of fashion wear in our wardrobes and form a vital part of any outfit. Originating as work-wear too – denim has become the nation’s clothing hero and can be worn with anything and everything! Jeans have moved with the times and come in high waisted, skinny, distressed and ripped styles (to name a few!) Dress up with heels and a frilly blouse for a night out on the dance floor or team with a cheery jumper and boots to kick through autumn leaves.
Puffer jackets have been around the block, but these fitted, padded coats are still an essential piece of clothing on the streets and a vital winter garment to get through those chilly days. Standing the test of time, you can grab a puffer in a leather-look, high shine, or even choose a floral print to remind you that no matter how cold the weather gets – spring will soon come around again!
Bodywarmers, waistcoats, whatever else you want to call them – a gilet or two are the ultimate go-to for layering in the autumn and winter months. Wearing a fun and furry one over a going out outfit means you don’t have to suffer in the name of fashion, and teaming a gilet with your everyday wear will keep the chill away as well as adding a pop of practical style.
Trousers & Leggings
Jeans may be our usual go-to, but it’s worth rethinking our fashion-look because trousers are quietly making a come-back, and the right pair of trousers can scream “statement” all on their own. From rock chick PU wet look leggings to abstract print paper bag waist, trousers can provide the signature style your outfit is lacking, whether you are wearing a classic look to work or being edgy for the weekend.
Skirts have been in fashion even before women started to wear trousers! Still available in more classic styles (with a twist) and a variety of colors and textures – it’s up to you whether to choose a mini, midi or maxi or maybe have all three! Tartan prints may be traditional, but this fabric will always look on point throughout the colder months, whether you are at work or play. Denim comes a close second and teamed with knitted tights, boots and a chunky sweater – you can’t go wrong. You can always dress it up a little and dare to wear wet look PU, which will get heads turning on a night out with the girls.
