Winter Pinspiration: Outfit Ideas on how to keep out the cold

If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere you’ll be feeling the cold at the moment! The cold snap has definitely hit and it’s time for all of those snuggly knits, long coats and boots to come out and keep us warm. Here are some outfit ideas from Pinterest to keep you inspired and looking great even if the weather isn’t.

A long coat is an absolute winter essential.


Stick to neutral colours such as black, grey or camel to make the coat work with all of your outfits. Taller girls can go for longer lengths, while petite ladies should wear a coat that hits between the hips and the knees.

Chunky knits help keep you warm.


Keep your bottoms streamlined, eg a slim pencil skirt or leather leggings like above, so that there’s only one baggy element to your outfit.

Consider over-the-knee boots.



These a a big trend at the moment, and thankfully so, as they will certainly keep your legs warm. You can wear it with skirts like the lovely examples above, or wear them over super skinny leg jeans. Some boots can also fold so that if you don’t want to wear them over the knee, you have the option of folding them down to your knee.

Leather jackets are both cool and hot.



Cool in that they have that effortless rock and roll vibe about them, and hot in that they make any outfit look amazing, even if it’s just a pair of joggers and sneakers.

Layer up.



The great thing about winter is that you can wear layers that not only hide the extra chocolates you might be eating, but can also be taken off when you’re in a heated room.

Black ankle boots are a must-have shoe.



Much like the coat mentioned above, the black ankle boots is the must-have piece of footwear to own in winter, keeping your feet covered and warm when the weather becomes inclement.

Keep a pair of opaque tights handy.



Not only do they keep your legs warm under skirts and dresses, but they help keep your legs look long and lean.

Sneakers are the perfect winter weekend shoe.


White sneakers are our preferred choice, but colourful ones like the ones above will certainly stand out in the grey of winter!

Hopefully these outfit ideas will help keep you looking stylish (and warm) during the cold! Rug up folks!
