January is all about new starts, but how do you update your look when you’ve spent all your money at Christmas? Try these six quick-fix layering heroes for a chic weekend wardrobe, whatever your budget
The soft trench This classic cover-up offers maximum value per wear. For a new silhouette, try slipping it on over this season’s luxe take on pyjama dressing or layer over a denim jacket and boyfriend jeans for that extra cool factor.
The alternative denim Swap your go-to jeans for an A-line skirt or this cool dungaree dress (coming soon). Think outside the box and pair with a checked shirt. If you’re still feeling chilly, style with a roll neck underneath for extra layering kudos.
The boho waistcoat This little jacket will instantly give your look effortless Parisian edge. Worn here over a bodycon dress, we’ve added a loose longline shirt so you can create a flattering silhouette and still feel confident.
The classic wool jumper There might not be anything new about a grey sweater, but try layering it over another knit and you’ve got a fresh and unexpected style. Complete with a luxe leather jacket.
The easy parka When it comes to weekend dressing, the parka rules. Opt for khaki to be a step ahead of spring’s utility trend and try pairing with luxe leather leggings. If you need to dress it up for evening, simply add heels.
The work-to-weekened blazer Another failsafe staple that ticks every box. For a fresh take, team with sleek, wide-leg trousers and an oversized shirt for a smart-casual vibe. Roll up the sleeves for a nonchalant finish.
