Anyone else rotating the same two or three outfit ideas at the moment? Well, you're not alone. The weather sometimes puts a spanner in the works when it comes to outfit prep – who can be bothered to be adventurous with cute outfits when it's getting so dark in the morning? With that being said, though, winter in particular is the time of the year when you can often get a well-needed boost from a new look. This doesn't mean you have to get roped into clothing haul culture, however, so don't think you have to splurge on a tonne of new winter items. Instead, take a look in your own wardrobe as we guarantee sometimes all it takes is a new colour pairing or styling trick to make your existing winter outfits feel fresh again.

If you're in need of some inspiration for winter outfits, look no further than some of the most stylish women on Instagram. We've found clashing hues to try out, a savvy coat styling tip and even want to show you how to start incorporating spring accessories into you winter ensembles. Keep scrolling to get some ideas for your future 'fits.

Try Clashing Different Colours

Sometimes you just need to push yourself out of your comfort zone to have fun with fashion again. Of course you can stick to a tonal colour palette or go for black, but why not try bright colours to liven up even the dullest of winter outfits? And better still, try wearing them together for a cool colour clash. Scandi style star Emili is always a go-to when it comes how to put unlikely pairings together, and we of course now love lilac and lime.

Opt For Fun Outerwear

Whether it's a bold bright tailored coat, a fluffy iteration or a shiny puffer style like Imani – statement-making outerwear is an easy win for winter. Because after all, coats and jackets are the items you'll get the most wear out of for so many months of the year, so they should be interesting.

Let Your Accessories Do The Talking

Swaddling up in cosy wool scarves, beanie hats and gloves is all part of the winter package, so make them a focus of your outfits. Grece goes for a colourful scarf, bright resin hoops and a pair of white sunnies to take her otherwise quite simple outfit up a notch.

Belt Your Winter Coat

We've already told you waist belts are making a comeback, and there's so many ways you can style them to feel more 2023 than 2006. Here, Lauren uses a thin contrasting style over a bright pink tailored coat. See how it pulls the whole look (quite literally) together?

Mix Winter And Spring Accessories

Letting your favourite straw bag collect dust throughout winter? Make like Zeena and let the humble basket work even harder for you by bringing it out during the colder months, too. Here, the stylist and art director adds her wavy Loewe bag to a winter coat, chunky boots and cosy balaclava, and it works!

Embrace Winter Warmers

While hidden layers and thermals are key, sometimes it's just best to wear all your winter woolies loud and proud. Snow boots are having a moment this year with the Moon Boot making a return, so embrace the practical trend. Quilted gilets and liner jackets are also winter hero items to rely on, especially if you're on holiday in the countryside, and you can easily layer over cosy knits or other jackets.
