With the winter months swiftly approaching, we give you four on-trend winter wardrobe essentials for a cosy and chic autumnal look.

Leather trousers

A true winter staple and a jean alternative, set to never go out of style. Pair your leather trousers with absolutely anything this season. From a casual streetwear look, a simplistic errand-running vibe, all the way to a more sophisticated dressy look, a simple pair of black leather trousers can change your look in many ways. With endless combinations, you can keep warm with a chunky cable knit jumper, throw on a trench coat and either chunky trainers or biker boots, with some black leather trousers, and you will become an on-trend style icon.

Puffer coat 

Long or short we’ll have you looking super stylish in no time with a must-have puffer coat. Definitely one of the most practical outerwear pieces, the puffer coat is a trendy yet essential autumnal must-have. With a variety of styles, colours and of course brands, there is a puffer coat for everyone. Simple puffer coats have been a staple piece of winter fashion for high-street brands for many years, and, in present years, couture brands have developed their own twist on the simplistic original tiered puffer ‘bundled’ look. Trending 2021 styles have shown modern adaptations on the puffer coat from years previous. This is seen by the ‘longline puffer coat’ which many brands and companies have included in their winter portfolio. This adaptation creates a very cosy, ‘touching-the-floor’, coat that most definitely has the capability of keeping you fully warm, from head-to-toe, this winter.

Crossbody bags

Keeping it trendy yet functional is what we all want to do in the colder months. Small, yet practical, handbags should definitely be at the top of your list for this year’s season must-haves. Providing a comfortable and fashionable accessory, crossbody bags are by far the most popular. An effortless companion in which all of your on-the-go, everyday essentials can comfortably fit, is perfect at this time of year. The generally smaller nature of this bag means you can keep it close to you and in full front view at all times, whilst allowing it to complete your stylish, wintery look.

ASOS (Topshop), £30.00

Calf-high boots

The chunkier, the better. 2021 is the year that we have seen the classic chunky biker boots, take a couple of steps higher. Giving a wellington-boot vibe, there is something about the boot reaching slightly further up the leg, to calf-height, that extenuates your legs and allows you to finish off a classic cosy autumnal look perfectly. We have seen, throughout this season, with the new trend of calf-high boots, individuals styling them alongside comfortable and warm autumnal, bold fashion pieces. These include, rib knit leggings, roll neck jumpers, a long puffer coat and a blanket scarf. Pair these boots with any of the above to ‘raise’ your winter look and stand above the crowd.
