It’s funny how the season sneak up on you, it feels like just 3 weeks ago we were in shorts and hats and now I’m breaking out coats and sweaters to hide from the elements. I hadn’t even noticed that Autumn was here until one day last week while driving down the road and seeing bare trees and gutters full of toffee coloured leaves did it actually hit me that Summer is gone once again and Winter is just about here. But just because the weather changes, I don’t feel like you aesthetic should, no matter what the weather my proportions, approach to layering and silhouettes stays the same.
Now although I adore Winter and all the wardrobe opportunities it brings, I actually despise being cold, I need layers to snuggle up and faux hibernate in. Just take this outfit from British boutique Woodhouse. When they asked me what my Winter style would be I had to think of comfort first and foremost which always leads me into thoughts of puffy jackets that feel like you are wrapped up in a giant quilt like this one from Woolrich. But as anyone in Britain knows, the weather can change a million different ways throughout the day so you need to be prepared to ditch items and the best way for me is with layering which is why you will always find me in some kind of shirt, knit and trouser combo like these classic Polo Ralph Lauren, Barbour and Boss styles (in monochromatic hues naturally). But most importantly, Winter to me is about great footwear. As someone who is constantly running around and on their feet, I’m always grabbing a pair of trainers that give me grip on wet, icy footpaths and if you do slip, at least you look stylish when you fall. So while your outfits might change for the season, your style doesn’t have to. Discover more at Woodhouseclothing.com

I totally agree with many of the points you make! I literally wore shorts just a few weeks ago and now I’m battling 8 degrees (Celsius) with winter coats. But with that said, there’s no need to dress down or abandon style. That’s why I love your jacket so much as it’s both classy and warm. 🙂
Great post buddy!
