As the dark nights draw close and the remnants of summer fade away, winter blues inevitably set in.
Despite the meteorological deficiencies that this time of year brings, winter provides the time for the ultimate expression when it comes to matter of dress. Outerwear once again becomes a vocal point and provides the opportunity to make statements, refine outfits and act as the last layering piece in a well-thought out look.
Paying homage to the attitudes and styles of the season, we have compiled a selection of winter-wear essentials to create Edit #13 - Winter Blues.
Explore the entire Edit #13 below to find out how to combat your winter blue this season:
Complimenting and contrasting textures through subtle detailing is a sure found way to remain warm and suitably stylish this season. Your choice of knitwear provides the perfect opportunity to experiment with different feels, with this Stone Blue Sweater from Wood Wood a premium example. Made from extra fine Shetland Wool that offers a supremely soft, comfortable handle, the aesthetic is complete with streetwear enthused touches such as the W.W work-wear label on the hem and long raglan sleeves which portray the contemporary styling of the Wood Wood brand.
Proving that you can in fact describe the resurgence of the waterproof winter coat without referring to a famous line from a 90’s track - The Gant Rugger Laminated Coat – accentuates minimal detailing to offer a simplistically sophisticated style. The Laminated Coat boasts a discrete design with the button cuff lapels, no show front button fastening with envelope trim elevating this coat above the ordinary. Refined in an elegant navy cotton blend that is both wind and water repellent, this Gant Rugger coat will be an expert edition to any winter wardrobe.
Refresh your winter wardrobe with these Navy Wool Trousers from pioneering London-based brand YMC. Highlighting that there is no better time to find alternatives to jeans than winter, the unique wool blend construction of these trousers offers warmth and durability throughout the season. The traditional flat-front style provides a casual feel to more formal trousers, so this particular pair can be styled across a range of smart and casual looks. Pair up with a simple tee, like the YMC White Pocket T-Shirt and a premium sneaker such as the ETQ Amsterdam White Low Top 1 for a more relaxed style.
Punctuating the importance of varying textures this season are these Common Projects Waxed Suede Sneakers. Crafted in a palatable vintage waxed blue, the sophisticatedly smooth suede upper adds a premium finish to a minimal, stylish silhouette. Complimented with a white vulcanised rubber sole which will match up to the abrasive winter weather, the simplistic design is refined with trademark branding on the heel- in the shape of a numbered gold stamp representing the shoe’s individual style and size.
Despite being the smallest watch in the Uniform Wares M-Line collection, at just 37mm in diameter, it makes the biggest statements. The contemporary brushed steel watch face is complimented dark grey dials and a robust rubber strap, with the palatable colour hue throughout beautifully framing the blue-inspired outfit.
