Top off your Autumnal look with a hat
Hats are not only a stylish addition to your Winter wardrobe; they are also a godsend on a bad hair day. Complete your outfit with a sophisticated fedora or furry Cossack. For a more casual look opt for a super cute beanie or dress down in a baseball cap.
Take a walk on the wild side

Pop your spring/summer attire back in the closet and opt for an elegant winter coat or chunky warm knit – and don’t forget white denim is always a winner statement piece whether dressed up or down.
Arm yourself with military-inspired looks
Camo prints and military green are a big trend this season. Camouflage printed furs stole the show at Fashion Week, however if that sounds too extravagant you can always opt for a slim pant or structured jacket. Dressed up or down the utilitarian trend is for everyone.
