AW21 staples for your wardrobe

As the days get cooler, and we have to start wrapping up, we suddenly all start racking our brains to figure out a new winter wardrobe. Pulling out our jumpers from the top shelf of the wardrobe, getting ready to get our layering skills back in action. We wanted to give you a look into some of this season's biggest trends, so you can dress confidently this winter!

Chunky boots.

From Prada to Dr Martens, boots have always been an autumn/winter staple. Of course, they have, they’re both practical and study, but look great with near enough anything. But this season, we’ve noticed that the chunkier, the better. Thick platforms or bulky hardware are a great addition to any outfit, and the thick platform can have you walking through the snow with ease.. So that’s a plus!


We always expect a little seasonal sparkle for the holiday season. Office Christmas parties, and New Year’s Eve, mean we get to go all out. But this year, after being inside for the last year, we want sparkles all season long. Bold jewellery and accessories adding a glamorous touch to our winter basics.

Knit dresses.

Knit dresses are a great transitional piece. From mini to midi, knit dresses are extremely versatile and work well for any winter occasion. They’re perfect for layering, and have so much potential to be dressed up with some jewellery. Oh, and they’re still super warm and comfy!

Puffer coats.

We saw Rihanna at the Met Gala this year, right? And then that girl on your Instagram explore page? Puffer coats have so much potential! They’re an easy throw over when you’re in a rush to the office but need to stay super warm. On the other hand, you can get some less casual options, and really spice up your winter fit!

Winter creams and colour blocking.

Simple basics are always perfect for layering, and a classic cream is always a winner in the winter time. Even better, matching that cream with some colour blocking. The bold contrasting colours will really make the outfit pop, with the ability to keep yourself warm with all the layers.
