A classic. This shape works on pretty much everyone, so we suggest one in every colour – including the zebra print winner.
Wear it with: A heeled ankle boot and an on-trend handbag.
On a scale of 1 to 10, this baby is an 11. It ticks two of the season’s biggest trends, velvet and leopard print, too.
Wear it with: A thigh high boot and an oversized denim jacket.
Every woman’s secret weapon. Long sleeves and a high neck keep this classic super sophisticated. We can totally picture you with a messy bun, waltzing your way into your dream life.
Wear it with: An embellished boot and animal print bag.
PSA: Slip dresses can totally be worn in winter, too. Kate Moss did it best but because we aren’t fuelled by her model diet we would layer it up and channel our inner ‘90s icon.
Wear it with: A poloneck and a faux fur coat.
When you just want to a jersey over your whole body but still look like you care, you know?
Wear it with: A chunky sneaker and a pair of colourful sunglasses to keep things cute.
The ‘70s just cord (lol) to say that corduroy is back! Get on it because cord is basically the new denim. Groovy baby.
Wear it with: A ribbed polo neck, ankle boot and waist belt.
This boss babe look might have you ruling the boardroom, even if you’re technically the intern.
Wear it with: A knee-high boot and a cat eye sharper than your wit.
Practically disappearing into the comfort zone of an oversized sweater in our actual forever mood this winter.
Wear it with: An Ari ponytail and chunky sneaks.
This dress is criminally underrated. No offence to all the other dresses on this page, but T-shirt dress, your time to outshine the others is now.
Wear it with: Dad sneaks and your fave puffer jacket, with a killer lip.
Baby, when it’s cold outside, this is your dress. Get ready to walk away with the title of “Best Dressed This Winter”.
Wear it with: A faux fur coat and hella high knee boots.
If it doesn’t feel like a 90’s throwback, we don’t want it. This check pinnie is giving us all the Cher and Dion feels.
Wear it with: A poloneck and white boots.
This dress is kind of a big deal right now. The fashion world is having a “throwback to the 70’s” party and we are all invited.
Wear it with: Suede ankle boots or white sneakers, and if you really want to take it to another level, add a faux fur coat.
