Looking stylish and classy in winter time, especially if you don’t usually give much importance to what you wear as long as you’re warm can be somewhat confusing.

All these Insta-bloggers and influences have their own personal style (which is great) but how do you know what clothes make you look classy whilst staying extremely stylish?

Living in London has taught me how to dress stylish and classy whilst staying warm in the winter months.

Here is a list of all the things I would reccomend you have in your closet in order to elevate your style.

(p.s; the following is just my views on this look. These aren’t rules, fashion is extremely subjective on what we find stylish. The most important thing is that you are confident in what you wear as that is what makes a great outfit)


Leather gloves

Leather gloves are beloved by some of our most stylish women. Black leather gloves are worn by Gucci models, influences and even the legendary fashionista; Blair Waldorf.

Wear this with a blazer or a long coat of your choice!



Short Neutral-toned Nails:

Short nails give off the impression that you’re well polished.

Darker nudes such as the second image are gorgeous winter tones that you can rock this winter to co-exist with the dark weather.

Darker neutral tones like greys are also very sophisticated.

Although the colour palatte seem limited; you’d be amazed at how many shades of nudes, purples and neutral tones fit the look you’re going for.



Trench/Long Coats



Where can I start with trench coats? The one coat that EVERY-one needs in their closet.

Trench coats will always be in style – I mean they have been since the 1870s.

A classic trench coat poses elegance, class and style. Wearing trench coats is one of the many things I look forward to every winter.

A trench coat – of what ever style, brand and colour is an evergreen fashion statement.
