As the darker, colder days draw in, we’re thinking of weekends away and cosy UK staycations. This means country walks, evenings in the pub and cosy nights in. But how do you stay stylish while feeling warm and cosy? We spoke to Mint Velvet, the brand synonymous with creating simple, stylish clothing for modern women, for their round-up of wardrobe essentials for a relaxed glamour weekend away.
Midi dresses are ideal for weekends away, and winter staycations in the UK, as you can layer them up for the colder weather. Add a leather jacket and trainers to make your look autumn-appropriate. For later in the season, layer a roll neck underneath with a wool coat and Bogs boots.
Ruched and knee high boots are a good investment this season – style yours with your midi dress. Biker boots and hiking boots are a key trend and great for weekends away stomping through country fields or even wandering the local high street. Finally, animal print boots are the perfect balance of relaxed glamour and add something extra to your autumn outfits.
Colourful knits can brighten our wardrobe and keep us feeling warm on a winter weekend away. Cardigans are back, and this season they’re cool. Look for biker details and military buttons for an AW19 update and an extra cosy layer. Finally, for cosy nights in, hoodies are more luxe this season. Elevate yours with cashmere blends and interesting prints.
