It may officially be Spring but it’s still barely a few degrees outside, so keeping warm remains a number one priority!  If you are struggling to keep cosey and remain chic, here a few MumzyNot styling tips, commissioned by New Look.

New Look have a fabulous and affordable range of both maternity and ready-to-wear. Look out for their designer collaborations too!

1: Embrace knitwear

A chunky knit is the ultimate in winter style and no wardrobe should be without a few key knitwear pieces. Whether you go for a cable knit jumper or long-line cardi, you can choose styles that go with your existing wardrobe, updating your favorite pieces. Keep it fashion forward with prints and neon or opt for more timeless styles in black and grey.

2: Try hidden layers

Warmth doesn’t have to come from outer wear – Layering is key. Think knee high socks, woolly tights and jeggings, that can all be worn underneath jeans or dresses. Also make sure you have a good selection of vests. These don’t have to be borrowed from you Grandma – You can get some pretty, sexy styles, with spagetti straps and lace detail, that could also double-up as Summer vests.

3: Invest in a stylish coat

For me, a statement coat should be one of your Winter Wardrobe staples. There are lots of different styles to choose from – Biker jacket, blazer, woolen overcoat, or the ultimate in mummy-style Trench. A chic gilet is also a great alternative. I love faux-fur or leather styles.

4: Bring on the boots

If it’s cold, there’s no better time to invest in a new pair of boots! Preferably leather if your budget can stretch this far – They will last forever and never go out of fashion. Knee-high boots in brown or black will go with everything and ankle styles look great with dresses or jeans. This black pair are very Acne-esque.


5: Don’t forget accessorises

Hats are great for keeping warm and they can really make an outfit. Think felt Feddora or chunky bobble beanie. Ear muffs are a chalet-chic alternative. A stylish pair of gloves or mittens are another must-have – There is nothing more unattractive than wrinkly blotchy hands!
