The Winter Style Guide

1. ANYTHING RED

If you walk around any High Street store at the moment, you’ll notice pretty much every rail is filled with red. It’s a huge colour and one I’ve been championing for a while. My tip is go for an accessory like a pair of shoes or boots – they lift any outfit and can make jeans and a jumper look a whole lot more special. We have some fantastic red knitwear in stock at the moment which is perfect for the Christmas period. If your a Christmas junkie like us here at Zuppe then this range will be perfect for you.

2. HERITAGE CHECKS

Thinking that everyone on your Instagram feed is wearing a check blazer right now? Then you would be correct…because checks, specifically plaid and heritage prints like Prince of Wales are in for winter – investing in a check coat would be a good idea. ‘Check’ out this Italian wool mix coat that we are currently stocking. This has been a fantastic seller for us and very on trend at the moment.

3. GRANNY DRESSES

My current trend of choice (mainly for their ease), a long sleeve dress that can take you from day to night will be the most versatile item in your wardrobe. Look for details such as florals and frills to really add the old lady factor but pair with boots to toughen it up.

4. DARK DENIM

We’ve been comfortable in our straight leg stonewash jeans for far too long, it seems. This season we’re moving onto dark denim, a smarter more structured feel – plus it’s all about that contrast stitching. Try working this into a ‘tonal’ look mixing with a navy knit for extra fashion brownie points – this crisp denim also looks good with a classic, oversized trench too.

What I love about this season is that there really seems to be a return of colour and vibrancy – fashion is fun again. The world might be a scary place right now but at least we can enjoy a bit of escapism now and then.
