I often struggle the hardest with my winter style and most of the time the first things I’m thinking about when it comes to winter style are skinny jeans, heavy boots and lots of knitwear, but let’s face it, such combos are boring.

Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean we have to collectively resign ourselves to giving up on style, it just means we all have to think a bit more creatively when getting dressed in the morning.

I’ve drawn up a small list of tricks I’m using to make my winter outfits less boring, when I’m in the mood for it. Are you using any of these? How do you spice up your winter outfits?

Check out my favourite picks from Lyst, a platform that aggregates different fashion commerce sites in a single place with a “universal shopping cart”.

1. Ponchos and capes

Just throw a long poncho over your average winter outfit or replace the usual scarf and you immediately look like someone rushing to a fashion show!

2. Over knee boots

They protect your legs from the cold and are extremely trendy right now.

3. Coloured fur

Patchwork fur and multi-coloured fur is extremely hot this winter plus it’s the one of the warmest things you can wear.

Go for the long coat this winter for a chic and trendy vibe.

5. Midi or mini-length dresses

Stick to midi or mini-length dresses; extra long dresses are not functional for skipping over slush or scaling snow mounds.
