7 Pre-Fall 2015 Styling Tricks to Try This Winter

Pre Fall 2015

We’re now slap-bang in the middle of winter and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to put outfits together that are cosy and stylish. I don’t know about you, but I’ve lost all motivation and have been stuck wearing the same jumper-and-jeans combo for what feels like an eternity. The solution isn’t a closet-full of new purchases, however, but a fresh approach to styling. So let’s look to the Pre-Fall 2015 collections – which are dropping as I type – for some creative styling tricks.

Marissa Webb Pre Fall 2015

1. Leg Warmers, seen at Marissa Webb…

On milder days switch tights for leg warmers and heels. Find basic black leg warmers at Claire’s and pair with Kurt Geiger’s lookalike heels.

Elizabeth and James Pre Fall 2015

2. Short Cross-Body Straps, seen at Elizabeth and James…

Shorten the strap on your favourite cross-body bag so it sits just below the bust. For added cool wear it peaking out from underneath your coat or jacket. Shop the Elizabeth and James “Cynnie” bag at Net-A-Porter and Nordstrom.

3. Summer Dresses With Winter Boots, seen at See by Chloé…

Missing your favourite summer dresses? Then get them out of storage, layer them over vest tops and throw them together with a new pair of winter boots. Try these knee high boots from H&M or these Tod’s beauties.

Proenza Schouler Pre Fall 2015

4. Head-to-Toe Check Prints, seen at Proenza Schouler…

The Proenza Schouler boys sure know how to put a statement look together! Why stop at a bold check-print coat when you could also wear a matching sweater, tights and boots? Try the Topshop funnel top with this Oasis coat and M&S tights.

Sonia Rykiel Pre Fall 2015

5. White Jeans for Winter, seen at Sonia Rykiel

It’s a challenge enough to get me to wear white jeans in the summer, let alone the winter. But somehow the Sonia Rykiel Pre Fall collection has made it look appealing. Pair the ASOS Ridley jeans with suede boots and a preppy navy coat for a similar look.

Tibi Pre Fall 2015

6. Lace-Up Ballet Flats, seen at Tibi

Dress like a Tibi girl and swap your ballet pumps and animal print flats for pointed-toe slip-ons with lace up detailing. At the moment everyone in the industry is obsessing over New Look’s £23 Aquazzura-lookalikes. Get a pair while you still can!

Red Valentino Pre Fall 2015

7. Badges and Fabric Patches, seen at Red Valentino

Embellish a few items you’re bored of with fabric patches and badges, as seen at Red Valentino. Visit your local haberdashery or Liberty London for a wide selection of customising tools, and don’t forget about the Anya Hindmarch stickers either [pictured in the first image].

  3. I can definitely get on board with white jeans in the winter (if I’m not going to have to walk anywhere with muddy puddles, that is!). I wish I could pull off the top to toe checks, it looks fricking amazing
