  1. The classic red lipstick is a must have. I believe everyone can find their perfect shade. This can be lipstick that you wear occasionally if red is too much for you.
  2. Everyone should have a statement white shirt. It shouts sophistication and elegance.
  3. Comfortable and stylish underwear goes a long way and boosts your confidence under all those winter layers.
  4. Invest in a good pair of jeans, in a style that complements your body shape.
  5. You’ll be lazing around much more in winter, so pay attention to creases before you leave home. Ensure your clothes are ironed or steamed, as this gives clothing a fresher, better look.
  6. Don’t let the winter weather mislead you – the sun remains a danger. A great pair of sunglasses is therefore a must-have. Not only do sunglasses protect your eyes from harsh UV rays, but they add a dose of glamour too.
  7. Buy a statement blazer in a neutral colour as this can be styled with a lot of different outfits.
  8. A structured handbag looks elegant, both on your arm and when placed on the table at your favourite coffee shop. Make sure it’s big enough to be practical, in a style that’s aesthetically pleasing.
  9. Avoid spending lots of money on fashion fads that will quickly go out of style. Your closet will be full of fast fashion and you’ll still feel like you have nothing to wear. Opt instead for classic, timeless pieces that have a longer lifespan.
  10. Last but definitely not least is a good perfume or fragrance. When you look well put together, you should also smell good. Find a winter scent that carries you through the day.
