I think it’s definitely safe to say that throughout different seasons we all have a sort of go to look that we just seem to gravitate towards. For me, it always seems to be some sort of knit top or jumper and a pair of straight leg pants/jeans. This is so very different to the little dresses that I go for in the summer, but for winter clothing I seem to veer away from a lot of figure flattering clothing. I think some of this comes from me not feeling overly confident with my body at the moment, winter is notorious for comfort eating.
Skinny jeans are really not my thing anymore, I’ve really steered away from them over the past couple of years. Straight or slim leg styles are much more my thing these days. This pair are from ASOS own brand, and I really like them. They’re high waisted, super flattering on the bum and then go into a slim leg with a slightly frayed hem. They also have a button fly, which is a detail that I actually really like. I have these in two different washes, and for me they’re just such a good basic pair of jeans. The only thing to keep in mind though if you’re thinking of buying these jeans (they’re the ASOS Farleigh Slim Mom Jeans I think) or any other jeans from ASOS own brand, the sizing seems to run a bit small so I would recommend going a size up especially if you’re in between waist sizes.
Tight knit tops with ring pull zips are all over the place now and I love them, especially this one with the higher neck. And of course some of the best shoes you can own in my opinion, slip on checkered vans. But really these or any other old school vans are just a staple for your wardrobe, and they’re honestly good for all year round not just winter.

I love jeans and I wear them almost all the time, but sometimes I like to switch it up a little bit, and I love these pants that my sister found at salvos. They’re work pants from Hard Yakka, and they’re so easy to wear because obviously they’re black. These are in no way anywhere near as flattering as the ASOS jeans, but I just love how they look cinched in a bit at the waist with a belt and a top tucked in. While these are second hand pants, I’m sure there are so many just like it available on the market right now. I love this jumper, it’s old, I bought it last year but it’s the colours that I’m seriously in love with. I guess the colour combination is a bit ugly, but I think it’s one of those ones that surprisingly looks really good, and I think would look so good on so many different skin tones and shades.
And lastly, my beloved Doc Martens. I don’t really hear that many people talk about docs, but such a huge amount of people that I know and people I follow on instagram etc own them and love them. They’ve been around for so long maybe people aren’t as excited by them as they once were, but I would honestly say they might be the best pair of shoes I own. I’ve had mine for almost 5 years and to be honest they are not looking their finest, but I can’t bring myself to get rid of them and buy a new pair. They pretty much look good with everything, so they’re always my go to shoe if I’m not sure what to wear, and they’re so insanely comfortable once you’ve broken them in. I think I can honestly say that if for some reason I was only allowed one pair of shoes to wear for the rest of my life it would be these.
