Stunning dark blooms ruled the runways for this season. Take inspiration from the shows and pick the pieces that will take you through to Spring. The trick is to pair with ultra slick and edgy items now for a cool Winter feel – then lighten it up as the first real flowers emerge. Red, purple, blue, white – and the bigger the better, all on a inky black base – makes for an elegant gothic feel that is just moody cool……
Ideal for this time of year when it’s still cold – just add a black fur gilet and you are good to go!

2. The Scarf
Beautiful timeless infinity scarf in stunning soft alpaca. Available in camel (picutured) and stone. Simple, timeless chic. Wear with everything from leather jackets to crisp white shirts or simply keeping cosy at home.

3. The Elegant Waterproof Jacket
The North Face Women’s Stella Grace Jacket offers outstanding waterproof protection with HyVent fabric performance. Has a real Prada feel and fits sleekly to the body with no bulky padding. Gorgeous! £169
4. The Gilet
Beautiful fur gilets don’t come chicer than this. Incredibly luxe with a cool boho feel, this black piece will go with everything. Loved by celebs like Sienna Miller and Adriana Lima – they are super versatile. Wear over dresses, shirts, jumpers and jackets and just feel glamourous everyday. Perfect!
5. The Jeans
We all want great looking jeans – but in order to get a good fit the fabric is often thin. When it’s cold outside we want style that also keeps us warm. The Naked & Famous brand fits the bill.
A cool label with a realistic price tag that prides itself on its out-there fabric mixes. Cashmere, silk and wool mixes plus heavier denim styles to keep you warm. Approx $140. Big celeb following – check them out! http://nakedandfamousdenim.com
Uniqlo have also launched weather proof jeans that don’t compromise on style! Windproof with heat retention functions and a great fit – the secret lies in the three layer structure. High tech chic!
Heat Tech Jeans – £34.90 – http://www.uniqlo.com
6. The Boots
We all need a chic pair of hard wearing boots in the colder months – and these gorgeous studded beauties fit the bill. A hybrid boot – essentially glam ankle bikers – which ties in well to the glossy punk trend. They toughen up cute dresses and give a sexy edge to leggings and skinny jeans.
River Island – £40
Stay warm, stay stylish!

Cool and VERY easy to wear – the Pinafore dress is back!
Last seen in the 90’s – you’ll find more variety with the 2013 version. Back then, a chic grey pinnie over a black tshirt was the epitome of cool. This time around its all about mixing it up. While black and navy totally rock – colour is where it starts to get fun.
So simple to style: do Rachel from Friends with a classic short tee underneath, or pair with a crisp white shirt for preppy cool. You could also go Kate Moss on a night out with a sparkly corset underneath…..
Dress up or down – this look is equally perfect over a bikini on holiday or a vest at home.
Get your Pinnie on!
