If you've been in the UK this week, then there’s no doubt that you too experienced an off guard plunge into the depths of winter – how did we get to below ten degrees so fast?! It’s time then to crack out the thick coats, chunky knits and heavy boots, but if you’re feeling uninspired by last year’s winter wardrobe and are ready for some shiny new purchases to meet the season head on, then look no further.

We recommend investing in a warm, velvety cashmere knit and Frame’s deep rouge offering is certainly a winner, pair it with Acne’s structured double breasted wool coat for an added dose of sophistication. Junya Watanabe’s punkish leather ankle boots are sturdy and stylish and be sure to grab one of Aesop's rich, moisturising body barms to battle the dry skin. If this time of year is your thing, then you’ll also want to check out Ali Smith’s latest release, Winter, which explores the season's icy darkness, but also, its hopeful promise of sunnier times.
