INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ASOS INSIDERS: WINTER STYLE
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 1 February 2018
At this time of year, it can be tough to strike the balance between staying warm and looking wavy. Luckily, these ASOS Insiders have got cold-weather dressing down to a tee – from colourful overcoats to toasty tracksuit bottoms, they’ve nailed the biggest trends of the season. So, for inspiration on dressing well this winter, just take a look below…
When it comes to compiling neutral-coloured ’fits, @asos_ashley is something of an expert. It may be winter, but here he proves that lighter hues can work for colder climes, too. Wearing an on-trend half-zip overhead jacket and wide-leg trousers in a subtle off-white shade, Ashley layers up with a heritage check overcoat to add a refined element to his look. Extra props for styling it with a checked scarf to show that he can experiment with traditional patterns.
An avid supporter of a clean aesthetic, here @asos_oliver effortlessly masters monochrome dressing. Jumping on the half-zip hype alongside Ashley, Oliver chooses to wear his black top over a T-shirt in the same colour to create a uniform base. He then layers up with a black puffer jacket – the much-coveted 90s outerwear option that’s made a serious comeback this season. On his bottom half, he switches things up and opts for pale-grey trews and a worn-in pair of white Vans Authentic trainers.
Donning unusual colour combinations is the way to go this winter, and it seems that @asos_dennis has fully taken the trend to heart. He picks a dark-mustard knit to form the foundation of his getup, before choosing a check borg longline coat to wear over the top – notice how the pattern features the colour of his jumper. Down low, he goes for black cropped jeans and a steezy pair of monochrome Air Max 90s.
Although an Australian native accustomed to warm weather, @asos_jono still knows how to switch it up when the temperature dips. He goes for a graphic-print hoodie in a rich-burgundy hue and layers it with a black bomber jacket – a failsafe combination to sport on chilly days. To finish off his outfit, he channels the 70s – a key decade for sartorial inspiration this season. He opts for a pair of era-appropriate velour adidas trackies and pairs them with contrastingly 90s-flavoured chunky-soled Air Force 1s.
If you already follow @asos_luce on Instagram, you’ll know that he’s well-versed in putting together streetwear-led ensembles with a twist. Here, he kicks off his look with a black Led Zeppelin band T-shirt and teams it with a complementary cap and joggers. As vibrant coats are where it’s at for AW17, he offsets his all-black base with a fiery-red parka. On foot, he keeps it colourful with a pair of super-slick creps.
