Power up your winter wardrobe with these Instagram-approved cold-weather outfits, as seen on our M&S Insiders

Master easy layering with a knitted vest

As M&S Insider Sam knows, a sweater vest ticks all the boxes when it comes to cold-weather dressing. Cosy yet effortlessly stylish, this versatile piece adds much-needed extra warmth to your favourite tops and winter dresses. Steal Sam’s style by wearing a knitted vest with a striped T-shirt for weekend dressing. The best bit? You can roll up the funnel neck for extra snugness when an icy chill hits. Smarten up the look for work or evenings out by swapping the striped T-shirt with a floral-print blouse and brogues. You won’t know what you did without a knitted vest in your wardrobe.

Put a twist on your tailoring

M&S Insider Dan gives us a masterclass in mixing smart and casual with this modern take on tailoring. Swapping a more conventional shirt or T-shirt with a hoodie lends this blazer and matching pants a casual edge. By matching the light stripe in the suit with a layering piece in a similar tone, Dan lends his look some extra polish. Dial up the cosiness by teaming it with a hoodie and finish the look with simple white sneakers. Who said suits are only for special occasions?

Try a bold winter floral print

Prints are back with a bang, as spotted on our M&S Insider Caley. Her versatile floral midi dress is the perfect choice for winter and spring. A flared skirt, scarf neckline and long sleeves make this an elegant choice for all the get-togethers in your diary. If you feel the cold – we certainly do – layer it over our clever Heatgen thermal top and wear it with tights. Complete the look with a tailored coat and heeled boots.

Look sophisticated in winter whites

A classic wool overcoat is a stylish take on winter outerwear. M&S Insider Rob shows us how to put a contemporary twist on this wardrobe staple, plus make white work for winter, by pairing it with ecru jeans and Chelsea boots. We’re big fans of this knitted polo shirt, an elevated spin on a menswear essential. Several shades of this extra-fine merino wool polo shirt have already found their way into our baskets. Take a leaf out of Rob’s book and go for a head-to-toe tonal look – neutrals are always a winner – for an on-trend cold-weather outfit.
