Winter wardrobe fatigue kicking in? Try these vibrant styling tips to boost your go-to outfits, from layering pastels to adding rainbow-bright loungewear to your line-up
Sing the blues
Loungewear remains firmly at the top of the in-style list for spring/summer 2022. Upgrade your basics for the new year by choosing a set in a bold, saturated hue. A comfy hoodie and joggers combination is a tried-and-tested outfit option for working from home or running errands. Restyle yours by wearing a white long-sleeved top underneath to create contrast at the cuffs and hem. Not just for sofa days, this eye-catching cobalt lounge set can be dressed up with chunky Chelsea boots and a cross-body bag for an on-point weekend look.
Go for pastel perfection
After months of dreary grey skies, it’s time to sweeten up your wardrobe with a serving of mood-boosting colour. Show off a pastel yellow jumper by teaming it with a longline gilet in cream (playing with layers is our favourite way to shake up the basics). A neutral gilet made with lightweight Thermowarmth padding will keep you toasty while proving easy to pair with sugary shades. Complete the look with a bubble-gum-pink beanie hat and bag and you’ll be ready to take on spring adventures in style.
Get kitted out in khaki
Rethinking your layers with a colour-block mindset is a simple way to inject personality into cold-weather outfits. This khaki combination subtly taps into the head-to-toe trend, thanks to the versatile, suits-all shade. Strike the perfect balance by slipping a sky-blue sweatshirt under a padded jacket – warmth is still a priority, after all – and adding coordinating joggers. Finishing touches like knitted accessories, turned-up cuffs and statement boots will take the look from safe to standout.
Try colour-pop coats
Who isn’t tired of their go-to winter coat by January? Rather than throwing on your jacket as an afterthought, consider it an integral part of your winter look. Colourful outerwear acts as a breath of fresh air for your wardrobe, whether you opt for parma violet, bubble-gum pink or sherbet lemon. Mix things up with an animal-print hoodie and old-faithful joggers for an outfit you’ll reach for on run-around days.
