As you step out into the morning air, it’s immediately clear that the days of summer are long gone and that we are much closer to the start of winter. The air has a crispness to it that makes you want to pull your jacket in a little closer and bundle up. What this means is that it’s the perfect time to take stock of your winter wardrobe and figure out what’s missing and what you could update. So, before you make any purchases here’s a look at what’s trending for winter 2022/23 in terms of must-have winter clothing.
The Winter Jacket - Combining Warmth with Style
If you had to list the staple piece for winter, it would likely be the best snow jackets. This will be your most-used item in your wardrobe, so it's also worth splurging on, making sure you get something that offers warmth, fits properly and is stylish too. Although that’s a lot of criteria to check off, it looks like the hottest trends of the season will allow you to do just that.
The puffer jacket is nothing new, but once again it's proving to be trendy. What's a little different with this year's version is that they are more streamlined, not so puffy, and some designers are even experimenting with more flattering cuts, textures and styles. In terms of colour, you can opt for the typical black or white or go with something a bit more unusual like rich burgundy, forest green or navy.
Maxi Dresses - a Flattering Trend for All
If you're the type that enjoys wearing dresses even in the winter weather, then it's time to change up the length you go for. For winter 2022/23, it's all about the maxi dress, which means the hem is right around your ankles. What’s great about this style is that it can be worn by any age group, any body shape, and any size from petite to plus size clothing. As long as it is a long dress, it will be trendy. That leaves a lot of room for variation and personalisation. If you want to be ultra-trendy, look for a camel or tan coloured knitwear maxi dress as this combines a few trends into one.
Enjoy a Print - Opt for Tartan
Prints can add a lot of interest and personality to your wardrobe, so there's no need to shy away from them. Proving to be very hot for the upcoming season is tartan in any colour. And while some standard colours are typically used in tartan, some of the hottest designers showcased a few unconventional tartan colours such as lavender and lilac. This can make the tartan feel modern and trending.
If you’re ready to inject some style into your winter wardrobe, these items are a great place to get started and will make you look much more stylish. Even if you just invest in a few new accessories, it can still be enough to liven up your winter essentials.
