As winter days begin to sneak in on us, and temperatures keep dropping, we pull out our warmest clothes and start to layer up. Winter months can be really long and oh, so very cold, and if you are anything like me you sometimes get bored of wearing the same winter coats over and over again.
With that in mind, I thought I’d give you three warm alternatives for the days you want to leave your coat at home.
The poncho is definitely one of my favourite winter essentials as it’s both stylish and cosy. I like to layer mine with a chunky knitwear to get some extra warmth for my arms, plus I love the faux fur collar and this season’s check pattern – so it’s a winner for me.

I am a huge fan of knitwear in different styles and lengths, so if it’s a cosy, long cardigan then it’s definitely going home with me. I normally like to add an extra layer underneath it and maybe a faux fur snood to make sure it keeps the cold out. These cardigans are my absolute favourite ones this winter and I throw them on whenever I want to keep nice and toasty.

Never underestimate the warmth of a wool vest. Put on the biggest and fluffiest jumper you have and wrap yourself in a wool vest and you’ll never want to take it off! Plus, it looks really sleek with a pair of black trousers and ankle boots.

Tip: Mulled wine or hot chocolate are great hand warmers!
