The chilly weather is creeping in, and sometimes digging through last year’s woollens is less than inspiring. With so many bright and beautiful choices to protect you from the cold, why not treat yourself to something new? It’s only practical, right? Here are a few of our on-trend favourites.

Jackets

SD_01_T66_6636_A4_X_EC_90Judging by our high street shops, it’s very much customary to wear a blanket right now. This gorgeous ombre jacket from Marks & Spencer is perfect for layering with long-sleeved shirts, and it contains wool for extra snuggle-factor. The colours are totally on-point for autumn/winter, too.

15WWIN_WE518_NAV_D01Yes, give us ALL of the coloured fur. This unique striped number from Boden is just perfect, toeing the line between glam and grunge depending on how you style it. You won’t be chilly in this bad boy, that’s for sure.

Jumpers

51HMmK8EJhLA bright, playful jumper is just the ticket for transitioning into cold weather. Joules makes several of these animal-themed intarsia jumpers, thin enough to wear under your coat but thick enough to keep you cosy.

For those not so keen on the more garish choices out there, this kind of jumper is widely available in all manner of shops, endlessly comfortable, and warm as heck. Style in basically any way you want – a solid cable-knit never goes out of style.

Accessories
