In the battle against cold weather it can be tempting to give up on looking put together and roam the damp and dreary streets wrapped up in a king-size duvet masquerading as a puffer coat.
But we’re here to convince you otherwise.
Now that you have packed away your summer dresses, you might be feeling uninspired by your wardrobe, but that’s where the high street comes in.
Despite the freezing cold temperatures and wet, dark evenings that await, there are a host of new-in items making a strong bid for inclusion in your closet.
Sure, the start of a new season doesn’t necessarily call for a complete wardrobe overhaul (make-do-and-mend should always factor in) but it is a great time to reassess your clothes and gauge any gaps that might need filling.
This month, the high street is brimming with stylish pieces designed to ensure you look good while contending with bleak weather, from statement coats and cosy scarves to roll neck jumpers you’ll find yourself wearing for days on end.
November is also a great time to start thinking about the Christmas – yeah, we said it – party circuit that will shortly ensue. While it might seem premature, if you want to make sure you bag the most stylish pieces for upcoming festive bashes, there really is no time like the present.
To help make getting dressed in the coming weeks that much easier, we’ve scoured our favourite stores to find the best new pieces to kick-start your winter wardrobe.
