It can be all too easy when temperatures drop to a certain (read: icy) level to lean on the same outfits you have for the past few years, huddling up in grey, navy and black knitwear and the same black ankle boots. While you can't beat a classic, if you're looking for some new winter combinations, the likes of Ada Oguntodu, Jessie Bush and more have been wearing a number of practical yet still interesting looks you too will be able to wear on repeat until spring.
Many of these key items you'll already own, such as roll-necks and classic blazers, but you can make your winter wardrobe more 2020 with cream boots, teddy coats and leather trousers. Just because you have to make sensible choices, doesn't mean you have to spend the next six months in boring and unadventurous outfits.
Keep scrolling to see 15 winter outfit ideas and combinations that you can lean on during the cold snap.
