Whether you're heading out on a crisp morning walk or you have a festive gathering with your closest friends, every woman should have a fabulous collection of winter wardrobe clothing items!
From women’s winter jumpers to the staple skinny jeans and quirky coats that are sure to help you stand out from the crowd, this season's wardrobe essentials and styling tips are sure to level up your winter ensemble.
The Bones Of Your Winter Wardrobe
It’s official: layering season is upon us. It’s a time we’re all far too familiar with, as we put on an extra t-shirt underneath a winter jumper to try and fend off the cold!
The first step is to prepare your essentials. Basics are perfect as they can be styled differently all year round, as well as being used as an extra layer of warmth. It’s time to create the bones of your winter wardrobe.
Skinny jeans are the perfect place to start with winter wardrobe essentials due to their versatility. Wear them with a jumper for a chilly winter's day stroll or with a sparkly top for an easy Christmas party outfit!
Pair with a range of winter footwear — from classic black ankle boots to over the knee boots — you’ll be stylish and winter-ready.
The Perfect T-Shirt
A classic white T-shirt will serve you all year round! The perfect t-shirt shouldn’t be sheer, should have a lovely relaxed fit that isn’t too oversized and is the perfect length for that ever-loved front tuck.
Choose a 100% cotton t-shirt to wear beneath jumpers and cardigans in the chilly winter months, for that extra layer that will keep you warm while being super soft and breathable.
Turtle Neck Jumper
Lightweight, comfy and extremely versatile, a turtle neck jumper is an essential when it comes to layering. It’s also extremely flexible, able to be dressed up or down as you please!
Pair with your favourite denim, boots and a blazer jacket for a classically stylish look. Alternatively, give your strappy summer dresses a little more longevity by wearing a staple roll neck jumper underneath it.
Comfy Black Leggings
Winter is always about being comfy and cosy! Black leggings are an essential for the days where you might have a few errands to run and equally perfect to come home, relax and watch a festive movie on the TV.
For style and warmth, pair your black leggings with an oversized jumper or hoodie for an effortlessly cool and casual look.
Tights are an essential when it comes to wearing dresses in the cold winter months. When choosing yours, remember that the higher the denier, the warmer they’ll keep you!
There is no better way to welcome the cold weather than with a new coat! No matter what your personal style, a statement coat is a must for this chilly time of year and an essential part of winter clothing for women.
Take any outfit from drab to fab with a beautiful velvet style or patterned coat in enchanting colours. A classic wool blend coat will take you anywhere - from the office to picking the kids up from school, or an evening dinner. You can even throw it over your jumper and leggings for an easy outfit to do the weekly shop or pair it with your favourite dress for an instant sophisticated look.
Whether you choose a classically seasonal colour of red or a beautiful vibrant magenta, you’ll instantly have an outfit ready for all those winter occasions — perfect to wear over the top of your christmas party dress or pair with your favourite jeans
Every woman should own a good pair of boots that will carry her through the winter months. Make a statement with fabulous riding style boots that will not only keep you warm but also look striking and elegant. Wear over your skinny jeans and combine with a chunky knit jumper and a wool coat for the perfect crisp winter stroll.
Ankle boots are also great for their versatility — whether you’re going to work or out for lunch, a good pair of black ankle boots really will walk you through the season. A top tip is to match your sock to the colour of your boot so that it won’t stand out too much should it be on show.
Alternatively, choose a pair of staple ankle boots in a striking colour to really create an outfit with a difference!
Cosy knitwear is a must-have for the colder months — there’s no better feeling than cocooning yourself in a slouchy cardigan on a chilly winter's morning! Pair with leggings for a casual day in front of the fire or with trousers and a t-shirt for a lovely lunchtime outing.
A classic jumper will work for any occasion. Wear a skirt and boots for a day at work or jeans and trainers for an everyday outfit. Alternatively, style an oversized jumper over the top of a dress for a chic and modern option.
Don’t forget to consider the neckline of your jumper and choose a style that’s most flattering!
From chunky sweater dresses to a cord pinafore dress, the frost on the ground doesn’t necessarily mean that dress season is over! Pair your winter dresses with tights and boots for an effortlessly chic transformation, or swap your boots for a pair of classy heels to create an ensemble perfect for a candlelit dinner or afternoon with the girls.
No winter wardrobe is complete without a top perfect for party season (even if it is over Zoom!). Whether you love to sparkle your way through the season with a sequin top, prefer a timeless Christmas look with a velvet top, or you love a novelty Christmas outfit, Joe Browns has everything you could wish for.
Pair your favourite party top with a pair of black trousers (or leggings if you’re only going to be seen from the waist up) and be ready for all the festive fun to come your way!
