Are you stuck into the new year, new look mantra? Or are you trudging through the short, dark days in the equivalent of a sleeping bag that will protect you from the reality of back-to-work? Both options sound pretty good to us - but if you're trying to side-step the all-black ensembles (although those can also be some of the best) and figure out your New Year Fashion Resolutions, our resident Style Hunter is here to help.

The weather outside may be frightful but thick wool capes, coloured furs and bejewelled collars are so delightful, so we’ve selected our favourite winter-worthy details to inspire you in these dark times...
Lessons to be learned
1. Comely oversized cape-cum-shawls look chicest when balanced out by skinny trousers and sky-high heels.
2. A statement knit can nail a winter outfit – you may not even need a coat!
3. Ripped denim and split skirts are acceptable even in the cold – don a hat to keep the heat in where it counts (n.b. the key to perfect hat hair is to ensure that flowing locks peek out beneath - simple).
4. Have you over-layered/over-heated on the tube? Shoulder-robe that coat and you’ll keep cool, at the perfect temperature.
The city streets are teeming with fashion inspiration, even on these dark days so keep your eyes peeled as you rover around. Meanwhile, for insightful life lessons like these and more, flick through our gallery and peruse the finest looks on the street that winter in London has to offer so far…
