Cosy edit: the coat and knits you need this winter

We are in the middle of October and now that the colder days are upon us, our priorities are with staying warm but this doesn’t mean our style has to be affected.

Fashion North has curated our 2021 cosy edit, featuring all the coats and knits you need to buy this winter to stay on-trend and more importantly keep warm this year.

Puffer jacket

From left to right: Zara, Stradivarius, and Weekday.

We are still not over the athleisure trend that has dominated styles in recent years, and this winter your coat of choice for a sporty, casual look has to be a puffer jacket.  A cropped puffer jacket will fit into your wardrobe perfectly this year, style for an off-duty gym look with leggings, a crewneck sweatshirt and chunky trainers, or for a brunch date with dad jeans, a crop top and trainers. Whatever direction your style takes you in, a puffer jacket whether in black or cream will see you through this winter, being the versatile coat you need.

Shop the style:

Black puffer from Zara (£45.99)

Chocolate brown puffer from Stradivarius (£25.99)

Cream puffer from Weekday (£55)

A tailored coat

A tailored coat is a staple in your winter wardrobe, an item you will bring out and wear year after year. Whether you are opting for a classic fit or oversized and slouchy, the options are endless depending on how you want to style your winter outfits this year. When choosing a coat you have to consider its wearability and utility and that comes down to your colour choices. Keep to a neutral colour palette of blacks, browns and greys in a fit of your choice. Take some inspiration from the styles above.

Shop the style:

Black oversized maxi coat from ASOS Design (£70)

Camel long tailored coat from New Look (£39.99)

Colourful winter knits

Who says a pop of colour is just restricted to summer? Incorporating bright shades into your winter outfits is easy, a chunky knit jumper in a variety of colours is the perfect pop you need to warm up the darker days.

Orange boxy fit jumper from Bershka (£25.99)

The neutral look

From left to right: white roll neck from Stradivarius, brown cardigan from Bershka, and grey cropped knit from & Other Stories on ASOS.

We can always rely on a neutral colour palette for winter, the go-to and easy-to-style colours fit perfectly in our wardrobes. Stick with a simple white cable knit jumper or grey cropped jumper that will see you through year after year styled with jeans or leather-look leggings; it is the perfect cosy companion. Chocolate brown has been the colour of choice this year, and taking us into the colder months is a winter favourite layering piece, a cardigan. This brown fitted cardigan from Bershka can be worn by itself or over a plain t-shirt for extra warmth.

White roll neck from Stradivarius (£27.99)

Brown cardigan from Bershka (£27.99)
