Winter wardrobe fatigue kicking in? Whether you prefer rainbow-brights or pretty pastels, here’s how to add a bit of oomph to your go-to outfits
Sing the blues
Loungewear remains firmly at the top of the style list for spring/summer 2022. Upgrade your wardrobe basics for the new year by choosing a lounge set in a bold, saturated hue. A comfy hoodie and joggers combination is a tried-and-tested outfit option for working-from-home days or running errands. Restyle yours by layering a white long-sleeved top underneath for contrast at the cuffs and hem. Not just for sofa days, this eye-catching cobalt blue lounge set can be dressed up with chunky Chelsea boots and a cross-body bag for an on-point weekend look.
After months of dreary grey skies, it’s time to sweeten up our wardrobes with a serving of mood-boosting colour. Show off a pastel yellow jumper by teaming it with a longline sleeveless gilet in cream – playing with layers is our favourite way to shake up the basics. A neutral gilet made with Thermowarmth, a weighted padding, will keep you toasty while proving easy to pair with sugary shades. Topped with a bubble gum-pink beanie hat and bag, you’ll be ready to take on early spring adventures in style.
Get kitted out in khaki
Rethink layering with a colour-block mindset, a simple way to inject personality to cold-weather outfits. This khaki-green combination is a subtle way to tap into the head-to-toe look 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 team with coordinating joggers. Finishing touches like knitted accessories, turned-up cuffs and statement boots will take the look from safe to standout.
Who isn’t tired of their go-to winter coat by January? Rather than throwing on your outerwear as an afterthought, consider your coat an integral part of your winter look. A colourful coat acts as a breath of fresh air for your wardrobe, whether you opt for parma violet lilac, bubblegum 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.
