  • Laura’s Winter Staples

     sizes

    As a perennially chilly Italian living in London, the moment the nights start to draw in, I immediately gravitate towards the warmth provided by turtlenecks, velvet and cashmere. Not every item in my selection here will reinvent the fashion wheel – indeed, you might already have some of these at the back of your closet – but each will fill a gap in your wardrobe, providing countless solutions for braving the winter.

     

    By Laura

    Veronica Beard

    Cedar Striped Ribbed Pima Top£ 175

    This striped polo neck is a great layering piece. Wear under dungarees for a simple off-duty look, or clash with a floral-print dress for something a little more fun.

    Mulberry

    Large Hampstead Leather Shoulder Bag in Red Ochre£ 1,150

    It’s not new, but it’s a truly great buy. Being the perfect size, the Hampstead has become one of my most worn bags of all time, and I love the brick red that is such a classic winter colour.

    Citizens of Humanity

    Charlotte High-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans£ 260

    During the summer denim gets somewhat overlooked for my beloved dresses, but I always come back to it around this time of year. Add a soft cashmere and ankle boots, et voila.

    Pure Collection

    Black Textured Batwing Crop Sweater£ 99

    Part of a co-ord set (with the skirt, right), this sweater wins top marks for versatility. Whether worn with the matching skirt or with trousers, the batwing sleeves elevate any outfit.

    Pure Collection

    Knitted Wrap Pencil Skirt£ 99

    This wool-cotton blend skirt stands alone as a savvy winter investment. Wear with knee-high boots in claret, olive or black for an easy, yet suitably formal look.

    Ganni

    Oversized Double Breasted Wool Blend Bouclé Coat£ 350

    The oversized cut and thick, warm fabric makes this coat a winter favourite – and olive is a shade that flatters so many skin tones, yet stands out in a sea of black and grey.

    MARZOLINE

    Velvet Scrunchie£ 30

    Now I’ve grown my hair I love experimenting with accessories. This velvet scrunchie adds a touch of femininity to whatever I’m wearing, morning, noon and night.

    Chanel

    Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in Rouge Noir£ 18

    My signature winter manicure is Chanel Rouge Noir. Nothing beats its rich, glossy and slightly vampy colour, and I’ve yet to find an outfit it doesn’t complement.

    Pure Collection

    Cashmere Luxury Funnel Sweater£ 299

    I’ve been wearing this light cashmere jumper non-stop, and it feels exactly like a comfort blanket when the weather turns. The ribbed finish adds that extra touch of luxury.

    Joseph

    Leather Stretch Legging£ 785

    I would never part with these leather leggings – they’re one of my top five winter wardrobe essentials. Wear with boots, flats, trainers or sky-high heels, anything and everything goes.

    Boden

    Bardon Lace Up Stiletto Heel Ankle Boots£ 150

    Leopard print effortlessly adds interest to an otherwise sober winter outfit, and these boots do the job with aplomb. Jeans, dresses, skirts or tailored trousers all make the perfect foil.
