From Classic Coats to Versatile Dresses: Here Are Your Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Winter is coming and Forever New has your seriously chic (and effortlessly wearable) wardrobe sorted.

Forever New

We’ve partnered with Forever New for a first look at their new winter collection, full of cosy and stylish wardrobe essentials.

Do you ever arrive at a new season and suddenly forget how to dress? For many of us, winter can be one such blind spot. As the temperature plummets, our stress levels rocket when we open our wardrobes and all of a sudden feel like we don't have any of the winter essentials we need to keep us cosy and stylish. 

Whether it's tracking down the perfect coat, finding a versatile dress that you can wear to work and on the weekends, or just knowing the right way to layer a look so you don't freeze the moment the wind picks up, once you source the right pieces, winter dressing can actually become quite a joy. 

Forever New are total pros when it comes to chic yet affordable items, and their new winter range is no exception. 

From on-trend prints to feminine silhouettes, here are our favourite pieces from their latest collection, as well as our advice on how to style them to create the perfect cold weather look.

Get the Basics Right With a Classic Coat

Forever New

Arguably the most important part of any winter wardrobe, an always-on-trend coat or trench is the best place to start when building a cold weather capsule. 

Forever New's range of coats are designed to last season after season while being just as stylish. 

For something truly timeless, the Belinda Soft Shoulder Coat in Light Grey Marle ($189.99) will go with literally everything. We love the pocket detailing and the double-breasted collar — understated yet eye-catching. For an editorial edge, style it over your shoulders. 

Forever New

Another dreamy option is Forever New's Hannah Maxi Coat in Cream ($199.99). The neutral colour means it will complement any outfit, and the luxe look and feel will add a touch of sophistication to your winter wardrobe.

Plus, its trench-like style takes it from a winter warmer into a trans-seasonal staple.

Ace Your Base & Start with a Sophisticated Dress

Forever New

The key to layering is finding the perfect base piece that works alone as well as in an ensemble, and Forever New's Ciara Tipped Shoulder Midi Dress in Imperial Port ($159.99) is the perfect outfit foundation. We love the off-the-shoulder detail, with the midi length that just grazes below your knee guaranteeing warmth.  

The Lyla Crew Neck Detail Knit Dress ($149.99) is the perfect meetings-to-after-work drinks option, which can be dressed up with gold jewellery and ankle boots.

For a bolder look, the Libby Mesh Spliced Midi Dress ($139.99) will add an edgy element to any look. While leopard print is timeless, it's also having a major fashion moment this season.

For a fun and flirty take, go floral with the Leona Pintuck Midi Dress ($189.99), which has a flattering tie-waist detail and a flowing skirt that is instantly elevated with a pair of stylish leather winter boots.

Add a Neutral-Toned Jumper

Now, the real fun begins: it's time to rug up.

For a more casual vibe, the Drew Turn Up Cuff Trim Jumper in Porcelain ($119.99) is ideal for throwing over your dress and turning your maxi into a sophisticated two-piece set. The neutral colour means it won't outshine the rest of your outfit, and you can team it with all the wardrobe classics like denim jeans and skirts, too.

Try A Cool-Girl Alternative to Coats With Something a Little Different

Perhaps a classic coat isn't quite your style, and that's totally fine. If jackets are more your vibe,  Forever New has some gorgeous textured options, like the Bella Borg Coat in Neutral ($189.99).

Thick and woolly and as comforting as a soft hug, it's perfect for chilly brunch meetings paired with jeans, or worn with tailored pants and heels for a sophisticated date night.

(It also pairs perfectly with the rich burgundy tones of the Camille Brushed Knit Jumper ($89.99)).

Forever New

The Ellie Textured Jacket in Charcoal Marle ($149.99) is another stylish and beautiful option.

A sophisticated twist on the "shacket" trend, it can be worn unzipped and open, or done up for a chic and classic look.

For a head-to-toe look, pair with the Rosie Cable Co-ord Jumper ($109.99) and the Rosie Cable Co-ord Skirt ($89.99) in grey for a modern take on a twin set.

Forever New

Whatever your style and whatever the occasion, the pieces in Forever New's winter collection are effortlessly wearable and timeless. Blending seasonal trends with feminine silhouettes, the coats, knitwear, winter dresses and accessories on offer fit seamlessly with existing pieces, while working together to build a capsule, wear-forever wardrobe.
