8 Cold-Weather Outfits That Will Bring You Joy This November

·4-min read

If the recent past has taught us anything, it's that you need to squeeze as much joy as possible out of your daily activities. Right now, that probably means doing things like making your favourite dinners on repeat and lighting your favourite candle to cosy into the darker evenings. For me, it also means wearing clothing that actually makes me happy. For example, on days when my energy feels depleted, I like to reach for an oversize red cardigan that's just as cosy as it is fun. I'm also a fan of wearing a leopard-print dress or skirt—even if I stay in all day. I looked to some of my favourite influencers to see what they're wearing right now. Not only will these outfits battle the colder weather, but they also might give you a rush of endorphins, however small an amount that might be.

First, there's Scandi queen Emili Sindlev, who I spotted wearing a gorgeous ankle-length red coat, which she paired with neon-green trainers. Another one of my favourites is Ellie Delphine of Slip Into Style, who's been wearing bright-orange accessories with a khaki coat and a pair of trousers. Then, Nnenna Echem, who is known for wearing bold prints, has made me rethink gingham as being just a summer look, as she's worn a pair of green trousers with a shearling coat and a squidgy purply pink bag from Stand Studio. There are even more than the above if you keep scrolling. You'll find they have something in common: All the outfits are joyful and guaranteed to make you feel better this month.

1. THE BOLD COAT

Style Notes: A red coat is guaranteed to make you smile and make any outfit more fun. Add a pair of neon sneakers to it? Why not?

Bite Studios High-Rise Jeans (£285)

Adidas Originals Zentic Trainers in Yellow (£53)

Wandler Hortensia Mini Leather Cross-Body Bag (£570)

2. BRIGHT ACCESSORIES

Style Notes: Not into bold head-to-toe colours? Fear not—that's why bright accessories were invented (or at least, that's what we're saying). Make like Delphine, and go for a clashing colour with a muted palette.

Rains Long Padded Coat (£400)

Marine Serre Printed Stretch-Jersey Top (£220)

Bottega Veneta BV Classic Leather Shoulder Bag (£1915)

3. FUN PRINTS

Shop the look:

Frame Recycled Faux-Shearling Sherpa Jacket (£505)

Weekday Cruise Squared Sunglasses (£18)

Miu Miu Gingham Trousers (£1)

Russell & Bromley Quiltpuff Bag (£325)

4. LUXURIOUS TEXTURES

Style Notes: Pieces that make you enjoy getting dressed in the morning don't have to be all about bright colours. Textures and fits are also important—for example, this padded Bottega skirt, as seen on Grece Ghanem.

Shop the look:

H&M Cashmere Jumper (£120)

Bottega Veneta High-Rise Quilted Leather Skirt (£2550)

Bottega Veneta Cassette Padded Intrecciato Glossed-Leather Shoulder Bag (£2370)

& Other Stories Chunky Sole Leather Chelsea Boots (£165)

5. A PRETTY JACKET

Style Notes: If you want to bring some joy to your outfit, take some tips from Nicole Ocran, and invest in a brightly coloured jacket. Layer it over a fun top, and wear your favourite blue jeans and boots to complete the look.

Shop the look:

& Other Stories Oversized Boxy Blazer (£120)

Marni Striped Knit Polo Shirt (£690)

Abercrombie & Fitch Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans (£72)

7. PLAYFUL LAYERS

Style Notes: Now is the time to bring your layering game back up to par. Though, instead of simply layering jumpers over T-shirts, take cues from Anne-Victoire Lefevre, and style knitted vests over roll-necks.

Shop the look:

Mango Arlequin Geometric Knitted Waistcoat (£30)

COS Slim Fit Roll-Neck (£45)

Jacquemus La Jupe Chouchou Satin Midi Skirt (£390)

JW Pei Gabbi Bag in Light Yellow (£79)
