On Trend Staple Pieces This Winter

25 May 2016

Taking fashion notes from French Connection's affordable-chic Autumn Winter 2016 Collection, it's time to turn up the heat on your style with these 6 on-trend staple pieces


Whether you're wearing a pair of sneakers and denim jeans or a maxi dress with platform heels, a top coat is just the addition to really top things off. This essential winter must-have provides warmth, while also refining your ensemble to state both practical and subtle-chic. Wear your top coat with sass and glide through winter at fashionable ease.


Delicate meets dangerous when teamed with a black leather jacket or mini-skirt, while pairing with converse shoes and a chunky scarf proves you're effortlessly casual-cool. It really doesn't matter if it's black or white, because this common colour simply goes well with everything. With monochrome and stripes still prominent in fashion, add your white knit and you're sure to embrace this season with pure elegance.


Layers, layers and more layers! It's time to layer it and don't be shy, because your season style solution is just a top coat and neutral cardi away. This winter staple is perfect for play, and most popular in minimalist colours like grey and black. With wardrobe essentials like these, you have the freedom to mix and match ideal for layering either a leather jacket or top coat with a basic tee and cardigan underneath. And for warmer days, grab your maxi cardi and rock a pair of boots with a pencil skirt. 


Keep fashionably warm on your next day trip or weekend getaway with a promising poncho. From South America to the red carpet, the poncho embodies a tastefully relaxed feel while charmingly draping from the shoulders along the arms. To avoid appearing as if you're wearing a blanket, complete your look with a form-fitting bottom and a killer pair of heels for a night out.


Steer clear, because this top is puffing hot! With both men and women rocking the trendy puff or "puffa" vest, it's no wonder this unisex jacket is more popular than ever. Both sporty and casual-cool, this happening vest is hip and versatile so if you choose to wear it as part of your gym to-and-from clothing or on top of a jacket or long-sleeved shirt, either way you'll feel and look smooth without breaking a sweat.


Don't let the cold keep you from having a night out. Give your jeans the night off and go for a city stroll in this body-hugging bottom, which proves both flattering and comfortable. Head out for drinks in your rib skirt and a pair of wedge heels, or enjoy a casual day out with sneakers or black boots. And for when you're headed out fast and struggling to find something nice to wear, this cute skirt is your quick fix.
