Mix style and comfort when it comes to going out this winter. These cosy, comfy trends will have you feeling fab while having a major fashion moment. Read on to find out how.
It may be cold outside but layering this season’s must-haves for a night out means we can finally add in the fashion flair we missed in 2020, or get the family glammed up. Whether you’re heading out to a fancy family lunch, or pulling out all the stops for an intimate date night, get inspired to dress the part. These new trends will keep you looking good all season.
This season it’s all about volume – and lots of it! Turn it up with high-impact sleeves and unique silhouettes. While this trend has been around for a while now, it’s showing no signs of slowing down. The look is simple; exaggerated, supersized sleeves that are dramatic, yet chic.
Opt for a subtle puff-sleeve floral dress or embrace the drama with huge proportions on puff sleeve shirts, dresses, or jackets. Add a pair of tights and boots and you’re ready to head out the door.

The biker trend is one we can all get behind – this look is all about tough but sexy dressing.
Get the look with a leather or faux-leather jacket, black leather pants and even a slick patent black trench. These tough fabrics are perfect for cold or rainy winter evenings as they’re great at repelling water and their protective layers will be sure to keep you warm.

If biker chic isn’t your thing, at the other end of the spectrum, romanticism is back in a big way. Ruffles are seeing a major comeback; you’ll see them on everything this winter season, from tees to shirts to dresses.
Try ruffles on for size with a frilly feminine evening dress or just a simple, chic blouse paired with dark jeans and a low heel.

Let’s face it; checks will never go out of style – a check print is a universal classic. The best part? Checks can suit both daywear and eveningwear, taking you seamlessly from a lunch with the girls to an evening cocktail at the bar afterwards!
You can go as bold as you like with this trend. A checked blazer, tailored top, form-fitting pants and heels make an easy uniform for lunch without going too crazy. If you’re nervous about adding it to your wardrobe, start small with a boldly coloured check square. Feeling bold? A matching checked ensemble.
For a middle ground option pair some checked pants or a skirt with winter neutrals and layer solid colours over the top.
