With the weather (hopefully) beginning to calm down in the next month or two, it'll soon be time to plan outfits that don't just consist of a giant coat and ten thermal layers.
Rather than shopping by trends, update your wardrobe with some classic pieces that won't be unwearable this time in six months.
Get the basics right and the rest will follow! Here are a few things to keep an eye out for next time you hit the shops…
1. A statement pair of heels
Perfect for dressing up a pair of jeans or for teaming with your favourite LBD.

2. A structured handbag
Whether you lug your entire life around in your handbag or are more of a phone, wallet and keys kind of girl, a structured tote like this one will keep everything contained and classy.
Belt Buckle Holdall, €55, Topshop
3. A pair of Chelsea boots
Not only are they perfect for jumping through puddles (cos we're kids at heart), but a great pair of ankle boots works like a dream with jeans, tights, leggings… anything!
