When putting together an everyday winter outfit, practical and comfortable doesn’t have to translate to boring and dull. With the help of just a few colourful touches, your winter basics can be elevated to vivacious new heights. Winter dressing tends to err on the dark and dreary side, so be adventurous and lift your mood by incorporating some colour into your wardrobe.
The asymmetrical hem and gathered sleeves of this ASOS cape makes it stand out in a sea of dark winter jackets. Its neutral beige color instantly uplifts the outfits color palette and creates an ideal backdrop for colorful items.
The vibrant eggplant fur scarf is a fun statement piece that adds an unfussy element of casual-luxe to this relaxed look. Colorful fur is de rigueur this season, with designers from Diane Von Furstenburg to Jean Paul Gaultier all partaking in the trend. The scarf is also a fabulous day-to-night accessory; the tips of the fur are lighter than the base, making it catch the light and look brighter during the day and appear darker and more muted at night.
The waxed maroon trousers are a stylish alternative to standard black. They add an unexpected pop of color that co-ordinates well with the beige cape and eggshell top, and their skinny cut also balances the cape’s roomy silhouette.
When it comes to accessories, utilize your creativity and maximize the style payoff of items you already own; the wraparound bracelet in this look was created with the help of a waist belt! Flat black ankle boots add a stylishly masculine touch to this ensemble and are comfortably casual enough to run around all day in.
