Winter wardrobe staples for 2020

Want to update your wardrobe for winter? Our latest blog highlights the key pieces you need this season.

The winter wardrobe staples to see you through the season

It doesn’t matter whether you have been working from home for the last few months or going into the office – we all like to look and feel good in our clothes. If you’re bored of wearing the same things day in day out, feel like your current wardrobe no longer reflects who you are, or want to look more put-together, investing in new clothes can help to make you feel more confident – and ready to face the day.

From comfortable indoor clothing to smart accessories that accentuate any outfit, there are a number of key pieces to consider investing in this season. Take control of your wardrobe this winter by giving away or donating the pieces that haven’t served you as well as you expected, and then fill up the space with one – or a few – of the below. Here are some of the winter wardrobe staples you need to see you through to springtime.

Leather jacket

Leather jackets have been around for quite some time, and it’s easy to see why. Not only do they look great paired with almost every other piece of clothing, but they last for a very long time. While they’re not cheap, they are extremely versatile, and you will certainly get your wear out of one. Dress it up or down, style it with your favourite trousers or dress, and enjoy the fact that it will never go out of fashion!

White trainers

Clean and crisp white trainers are an everyday go-to. From platform designs through to pumps, everyone needs a pristine pair of white trainers in their shoe cupboard, which can be worn for any given occasion. On the top of every fashion editor’s wishlist, they make any outfit look stylish.

Oversized jumper

Providing comfort and warmth, a chunky knit jumper helps to keep you cosy in winter. Pair with a scarf and large overcoat for those particularly cold evenings.

A blazer

For women, an oversized blazer is the perfect layering piece. It can be worn with skirts, jeans, leather trousers – and the rest! For men, a smart blazer helps to dress up any look; it’s the ideal smart casual piece. No matter whether you’re doing the weekly shop, meeting with friends in a bar or heading for the office, a blazer is the perfect item to keep you feeling warm while looking effortlessly cool.

Chunky boots

Black boots are the ultimate winter wardrobe staple. Not only are they sturdy and comfortable, but they’re also stylish and sophisticated. From Chelsea boots to desert, you can choose from so many styles to complement your outfits. Team with tights and floral dresses to toughen up a feminine look, or pair with jeans and a chunky knit.  

A trench coat

If you’re hoping to create a tailored look, a trench coat is the way to go. Lighter than a puffer or teddy coat, they’re available in a variety of neutral shades, and are easy to pair with a lot of clothes, from jeans to dresses to trousers.


For those of you who aren’t moving much further than your home office, comfort continues to be of the utmost importance. So, it’s not surprising that loungewear has been so popular this year. From co-ords for women to long-sleeved tops and tracksuit bottoms for men, there is a wide selection to choose from this winter.
