10 Items For Winter

Well, we're already a third of the way into January, and the Christmas decs have been taken down, the resolutions have fallen to the wayside, and the temperatures have been dropping (and there's even a potential of snow!) This is definitely the dreariest time of year, but that's no reason why your style should suffer. Indulge in some retail therapy, or shop your own closet, for these ten winter must-have items we've compiled - enjoy!

10 Items For Winter

1. A Fabulous Coat: An amazing coat not only hides a multitude of sartorial sins but also keeps the chill at bay. Win Win!!

2. A Cosy Hat: Hats are both functional and statement-making: go all out with something big and bright or play it safe with one in a neutral colour that will go with all your coats.

3. A Bit of Bling: Diamond-y jewels somehow seem most appropriate in winter - maybe because they resemble glistening snowflakes? Whatever the reason, they are an invaluable way of adding a little glamour to your winter apparel - pin a cluster of dazzling brooches to your coat for a cool look, or just the one if you're feeling more staid.

4. A Fur Gilet: An instant glamourizer and the perfect layering piece, a fur gilet is a fabulous addition to any wintery ensemble.

5. Some Brocade Trousers: Fancy pants are everywhere, and they look oh-so-chic. Tone them down with a plain black top, or be more daring by pairing with a clashing print.

6. Some Snuggly Mittens: Keep your hands toasty and warm with a pair of cute mittens, like these cheery Fair Isle ones.

7. An Over-Sized Jumper: When the weather outside is frightful, snuggle up inside the house in a big sweater worn over leggings (the kitschier/naffer/tackier the design, the better! Although this little Fair-Isle-Reindeer number is cool enough to be worn outside ;-)

8. A Touch of Sparkle: Brighten up a gloomy winter day with some sequin action, whether it's in the form of a skirt or top. As long as the rest of your outfit is subdued, you'll be able to get away with it as day-wear.
Rare London short skirt -

9. A Velvet Blazer: For a more wintery twist on the classic blazer, look for one in a luxuriant velvet; it's just as versatile but a bit more interesting.
Dolce Gabbana dolce gabbana -

10. A Pair of Toasty Snow-Boots: If you live in a place that gets a lot of snow (in which case Vicky is immensely jealous of you), you'll need some trusty boots for tramping around in. These Sorel beauties are both chic and practical.
