Skinnies and flat ankle boots??

I need tops, jumpers and coats!!

At a total loss, I don't do Winter well!!

On a really right budget but don't let that stop you posting ££££ things as its good to get an idea of styles smile

Some great ideas thank you! Like many of you I hate tunics! (And dresses over trousers!!!) Also hate jumpers but want to like them!!! grin

Embellished collared shirts and longline cardigans look good with skinnies

TravelinColour boots were from All Saints 2-3 winters ago- they are doing a similar style this year but in black or brown leather - the 'bonny Cuban' boot. Think the heel is slightly higher than on mine though. Also you may be pleased to know the extra strap bit is removable! Have taken it off on my boots. All Saints boots are quite expensive I know but mine are so comfy.

Alternative could be the Ash Jalouse or Spiral boots in wood ash colour? I tried them on recently but felt they were too similar to my existing boots to buy. Again heel slightly higher but felt very walkable; Spiral heel I suspect is slightly lower than Jalouse.

OP if you hate jumpers, another look I like is a white embroidered folky top I got from Indigo at M&S- it's not too long but the body is loose with a tighter band around the hips so it doesn't look too floaty- sorry for crap description! Something like that with a cardie? Afraid I am always cold so am a bit wedded to my cashmere knitwear...

TravelinColour the Ash boots in wood ash are the best grey suede boots I've seen recently- some websites seem to describe them as brown but they aren't, they're a lovely deep grey.

Thanks Captain, will take a look... (The stupid thing is I am always freezing!)

Favorite outfits this winter are two long Filippa K jumpers (plum in mohair, oatmeal in merino).
