Now that the days are shorter, the nights are longer and the wind gets a bit colder winter is just around the corner. Unfortunately the days of wearing jumper dresses without tights or wearing chunky cardigans as coats don't last forever. Hopefully the transition will be gradually, so we have enough time to adjust not only our life but also our wardrobe.
Colder days don't justify the fact that you're going to wear your track bottoms and hoodies everyday. There is a way to protect yourself from the cold whilst looking like a true fashionista. Because honestly, if you manage to look good after a snowstorm: you my friend are a true fashionista.
First impressions count, therefore it is necessary to really think about the outside. Since most people will only see you in your coat, hat, gloves, scarf and shoes it is essential to get these items to look perfect. What's underneath that coat hardly even matters (as long as you're not wearing track bottoms).
Here's a selection of my favourite winter outerwear:
BLACK BIKER COAT WITH FUR LINING // ZARA
CREAM TEDDY COAT // TOPSHOP
CAMEL WATERFALL COAT // ASOS
NAVY FUR LINED PARKA // TOPSHOP
CREAM COAT // ZARA

BLACK HEELED KNEE BOOTS // ZARA
BLACK CHUNKY CHELSEA BOOTS // RIVER ISLAND
LEOPARD HEELS // ZARA
Alright, so there comes a time when you take your coat off (unfortunately). What to wear underneath? My answer would be to keep it simple, that's the trick really, less is more. A simple timeless jumper with some effortless jeans or even a pencil skirt will look amazing. Switch that jumper for a blouse every now and then, and even a t-shirt with a chunky cardigan for more casual days. A little cheat this season are the joggers, they are track bottoms that actually look chic when combined with a nice blouse for example. What's not to love? A pair of track bottoms you can actually wear in public!
