As they say, winter is coming. The wardrobe staples you need – and how to to style them – as the temperature drops.
As the days start to cool but our minds are still mentally back on that epic summer vacation, we enter that inevitable moment when we all wonder; what on earth do we actually wear now?
Teddy coats, chunky turtlenecks and wide leg trousers may be de-riguour come autumn. These are the staples that make you feel chic, even when you’re secretly wearing a thermal or two pairs of socks. But the trick is to keep these classic layers feeling fresh by layering up in a way that feels very now (even if you bought the turtleneck back in ’09).
So after three months of treating a dress as an entire outfit, I took the new Uniqlo U collection – which has just dropped in-store and online – to the streets of London to re-wire my sartorial mindset. Consider this a quick five point guide on what to wear now.
