Wet feet. Too hot indoors, too cold outside. Don’t be a Scrooge. Winter is the best season for getting dressed. Fabulous coats, lavish cashmere, new boots. You need more layers than in summer, so have fun with it instead.
The Polo Neck
Your working wardrobe in winter should be centred around layering. If you only take one piece of advice from this blog, make it this: invest in a quality polo neck. Flattering and sitting close to the body, a combination such as our silk and cotton blend will insulate you in a way you wouldn’t believe. The perfect alternative to a silk shirt under tailoring, or pair with dresses and chunky knitwear for a seasonal look.
The Cosy Cashmere
Nothing says winter quite like cashmere. And when paired with tailored trousers or skirts, you achieve comfort and style – all in one soft jumper. Our cashmere range features casual Bretons and chevron styles, to classic V-neck and ribbed polo jumpers. We recommend our Cloud Cashmere Crew Neck with our Prince of Wales tailoring for a contemporary take on classic tailoring.
OPT FOR OUTERWEAR
The Longline Coat
A coat can make or break an outfit. Substitute your tailored jacket for a longline coat – still tailored and work-appropriate but in wool blends, designed to keep you snug on your commute.
The Smart Shoe
Shoes can be tricky in winter, when you have wet weather to consider. Granted, work dresses are easy to pair with flat shoes or boots but tailoring can be a challenge, given the ‘length of the boot versus length of the trouser’ conundrum. Explore our boot offering. With a range of styles, muted tones and ankle lengths, they’re built to last, guaranteed to keep your toes toasty and, most importantly, still retain that requisite air of smartness.
The Quality Scarf
Similarly, a scarf can make all the difference. Invest in a timeless wrap-around style that complements your coat but is also there for more than just its insulating qualities. It should stand alone as a well-made, easy on the eye accessory.
Tights & Socks
Tights and socks are a no-brainer for cold weather. Invest in socks with cashmere blends and ones stylish enough to be seen over your shoes, like our sparkly pair. Quality tights are also available in a range of coverages, whilst our Control Tops add a flattering touch, working to streamline the body.
