We may have seen the conclusion of HBO’s Game of Thrones in the last year, but winter is still very much coming. To ensure that you can cope with the cold snaps, frosty mornings, chilly nights and inevitable snowfall in style, take a peek at some of the winter jacket and boot trends already hitting the high street.
Park up in style
With a shorter take on the classic parka, brands like North Face have tried to create the ultimate in comfort, versatility and warmth. Their 550-fill-goose-down, waterproof parka jacket comes with fleeced cuffs, a detachable fur hood and an adjustable belt around the waist, making it the ultimate night-or-day jacket to wrap up in this winter.
Faux fur fun
A staple of every winter, it seems, faux fur jackets come with vibrant visuals and plenty of room underneath to really layer up with jumpers and scarves. Although not waterproof, there are few better alternatives on crisp, frosty mornings, while they also make exceptional options for slipping over chilly shoulders during the evening. Cosmo highlights Boohoo’s oversized teddy faux fur bomber jacket and Topshop’s tiger-print faux fur option, amongst many others.
Another of the classic women’s winter jackets that routinely return in some form every year. Asos are inundated with fabulous aviator options this winter. These shearling suede jackets bring classic style and supreme cosiness in both fitted and oversized designs, embodying both the classic and contemporary of this timeless style. Versatile enough to wear day or night and style with jeans or trousers or slip over a party dress, aviators will be sky-high in sales again this winter.
What better to wear with one of the best women’s winter jackets, than a pair of the ultimate in women’s winter boots this winter? From the latest in UGGs to shearling-lined snow boots, cosy, stylish feet can certainly be standard this winter. Whether opting for over-the-knee or ankle boots, let your shearling accents shine while your calves or ankles enjoy the soft, warm interior of your cosy new winter footwear.
However, another way to treat your knees this winter could be by investing in a pair of chestnut suede, or croc, retro boots. With room underneath for the calves of your skinny jeans or perfect for styling with a mini dress, these waterproof boots keep cold splashes at bay as you’re walking, and take minimal maintenance all winter long.
It’s Jimmy Choo that kicked off the moc croc trend at Milan Fashion Week early in 2019, and other designers have reacted with a range of affordable styles.
Finally! Hiking boots have made it to the high street – and not just for wearing in the great outdoors. Bringing the ultimate in practicality to your everyday footwear, Chanel showed everyone how to make hiking boots chic – and the likes of Zara and ARKET have since unleashed purse-pleasing options.
Dr Martens have naturally found launching an everyday hiking boot simple, with their suede ‘Zuma’ style available for less than £100. In the last year, hiking boots have been spotted in everyday wear on everyone from Bella Hadid to the Duchess of Cambridge – so, slip them on and step out ready for anything this winter.
