Faux Fur coats are the perfect way to wrap up warm this winter season.
Poppy Delevingne wears a sleek, navy faux fur coat with pink and red striped detail on the arms. The coat can be dressed down with a pair of jeans and ballet flats, or you can dress up the look by throwing a fur coat over a dress.
Sophia Richie provides a more youthful, bold take on the classic coat with the contrasting baby blue and navy stripes in a knee length size. The coat provides a warm and fun vibe on a drizzly grim day.
This trans-seasonal knit top is ideal for the Australian winter where the temperature can be unpredictable.
Margo Robbie, wears a grey knit turtle neck top under a khaki coloured jacket, black trousers and knee high boots.
Nicole Richie has reworked this look for the warmer weather by wearing a cropped rib knit, sleeveless jumper in white, paired with a classic pair of denim shorts and ankle boots. Make the look edgier with a chunky black belt with gold detail.
The knit top is a basic item to have in your wardrobe, and can be worn all year round.

If you want to invest in one item this season, you can’t go past a nice pair of structured black ankle boots. Either with a chunky heel or a flat soul the ankle boot is very versatile with any outfit and keeps your feet warm in the colder weather.
Chiara Ferragni, a fashion blogger, pairs pointed ankle boots with a chic beige overcoat, ripped skinny jeans and hat creating the perfect combination of looking “pulled together” and sophisticated. The ripped jeans make the look perfect for day-time.
Miranda Kerr has also paired angle boots with a crisp coat, looking chic and fashion forward in her black and grey ensemble.
L eather is a must have fabric to incorporate into your wardrobe this winter. Kate Bosworth, wears a leather pencil skirt, ideal for work or formal functions.
Alternatively you can opt for a short mini leather skirt such as Rosie Huntington-Whitley’s in the black quilted leather, perfect for parties or dinner out with friends.
Both skirts work well with oversized jumpers, tucked in or over the top of the skirt or for a more formal setting a blouse will work well too.
