winter style


There's no other way to say it lads – it's feckin' freezing outside. 

Luckily, the high street seems to have predicted this cold snap, and is awash with stunning fur coats and cosy leather gloves. 

However, one trend that has caught our eye is the statement scarf, so we've selected 10 of our favourite styles from the high street and online for you to keep that clavicle out of the cold with (and hide your face in when you see your ex on the Luas).

This time last year, we were #blessed by the Joanne Hynes collection for Dunnes Stores, which sold out super quick (people literally qued up for hours to shop the goods!)

Anyway, there were STUNNING fur coats, massive pops of cour and a metallic skirt we're still not over. 

Twelve months later, and we are ready for Joanne's newest collection, which launched in Dunnes Stores this week. 

Can I get a HALLELUJAH? 

Anyway, we were lucky enough to pop in to the gorgeous Dunnes to have a gawk at the beautiful clothes, and we were not disappointed. 

The collection was a refreshing burst of colour, with silk shirts, embellished collars and stand-out coats winning our hearts. 

The amazing Joanne took inspiration from strong historical Irish women, namely Maud Gonne and Constance Markievicz, with a nod to military styles. 

Now, naturally, we have our favourite pieces, which we simply MUST share with you. 

Firstly, we were OBSESSED with the embellished head bands, that gave us serious Blair Waldorf vibes.

Then, we locked eyes with a pair of velvet heels, that literally made our heart flutter with autumnal excitement.

Our FAVOURITE piece in the entire collection was, naturally, the beautiful red military-style coat.

Prices for this marvellous collection start at just €25, and go up to a pretty pricey €950 – so there is something for every budget! 

However, it is set to sell out pretty darn fast (not surprising), so get your butts to Dunnes ASAP. 



Oh, hey.

It's pretty darn cold out, wouldn't you agree?!

Time to accept your fate and invest in a knitted roll neck because here at SHEmazing! we worry about your health. 

Not even in the same league as the turtleneck or the humble jumper, the roll neck usually comes in a nice, thick material finished off with a sweeping roll of extra fabric preserved just for your precious neck. 

Apart from the fact that the roll neck will keep you warm, it is also super easy to style and you can even use it hide your face if you are looking particularly grim/ you bump into someone you do not want to see. 

Let Kendall show you how it's done. 

That is a roll neck used to perfection. 

So where can you find your own illustrious roll neck? Let's get you started.

Snow and ice might be romantic, but getting smacked in the face with rain on a violently windy day is probably the least sexy thing about winter weather!

As Irish ladies, we are familiar with every kind of rain, from the misty drizzle that frizzes our hair like nobody's business, to the torrential showers that make us wish we'd never ventured outside the house.

Rather than cursing the rain this winter, get prepared with some seriously stylish wet weather gear!

Here are just a few of our favourites…

1. The cosy parka
Zip it up, hide under the hood and you're all set for whatever the Irish sky throws at you. In drier weather a parka is perfect for wearing open over jeans and boots, too.

Lined Parka, €69.99, H&M

2. The hooded duffle coat
Channel your inner Paddington Bear with an adorable duffle coat – but make sure you get one with a hood to really protect you from the elements. We love this forest green coat – could it be any more Christmassy?!

Duffle Coat, €120, Warehouse

3. The loud and proud umbrella
We need all the cheeriness we can get on a grey winter's day – this red and white umbrella will have you smiling in an instant.

Stripes and Ruffles Umbrella, €7.95, Forever 21

4. The funky wellies
When your poor suede ankle boots have failed you, it's time to go for the big guns – the wellies. This polka dot pair will see you through the summer festivals, too.

Joules Molly Wellies, €47, Office

5. The wide-brimmed hat
Keep the rain off your beautiful face with an on-trend fedora – this gorgeous red one is on our December shopping list!

Fedora, €33, River Island



A warm black wool coat is a staple in most of our winter wardrobes. Problem is, the basic black can get boring very, very fast.

To keep your winter wardrobe fresh and stylish this winter, check out our tips for styling this classic piece…

1. Go for long
Don't be afraid to choose a maxi-length coat that's a little bit out of your comfort zone. A calf length coat – or even longer – will never date and will look equally elegant with jeans as it does with a gorgeous dress. Kim Kardashian manages to look the picture of style even in ripped jeans and a white tee:

2. Make a statement
If your coat can't do the talking, get noticed with a bold scarf. A luscious knitted circle scarf or a printed silk one will both look equally good with your basic black number – Blake Lively has the right idea:

3. Faux fur FTW
A faux fur collar adds a touch of luxury to your black coat. This street style queen went for a matching black version, but other neutral tones would work just as well:

4. Toe the line
Vividly coloured footwear is the perfect complement to a muted black coat – go for a bright suede ankle boot or killer heels like Miranda Kerr:

5. In the bag
A statement handbag, even if it's in the same colour palette, will add instant style to your look. A structured bag like this one is the perfect match for oversized outerwear:

6. Fit in
A well-tailored coat looks incredible all by itself – Olivia Palermo is the picture of winter elegance in this fitted number:

7. Two-tone
Contrast leather details like sleeves or collars add an edgy, high-fashion touch to your cold weather wardrobe. To really jazz things up, mix up the colour palette too – we love this maroon and black coat:

8. Keep things muted
An all over black and grey outfit might seem dull, but it is a great classic look that will make you look effortlessly stylish. Denim, leather and wool in different muted tones all combine to make this fashion blogger look as if she's just stepped off the catwalk:




Now that Ireland’s climate has gone full-on wintery with rain and wind galore, it might be time to say goodbye to those heels and embrace the cozy ankle boot.

A simple leather boot is an easy way to look slick and stylish without compromising on comfort. Whether you go for a killer heel or a flat Chelsea boot, there is something out there for everyone and to suit any price range.

The humble ankle boot is hugely versatile – here are just some of the ways we’ll be wearing our pair this season…

1. Colour pop
Steering away from the standard black, brown or tan is a great way to add a bolder element to your outfit. Caroline Flack’s bright red pair are edgy enough to wear on a night out, but could easily be dressed down with plain black jeans:

2. Lengthen those legs
Tucking a jegging, legging or ultra-skinny jean into your ankle boots is a great way to lengthen the leg line. Cara Delevingne is a big fan of this look – though her legs are long enough as it is!

3. Fold it over
Double cuff your jeans to show off just a peek of ankle. Boyfriend jeans are great for this look, but they do shorten the leg line more than cuffed skinnies, so be careful if you have naturally shorter legs. Rachel Bilson pulls this style off like a pro:

4. Put a sock in it
Layering high ankle socks over leggings, tights or even bare legs gives a real prairie-girl touch to your ankle boots. Avoid this look over thicker jeans unless you want to look like a hillwalker! This style blogger has the right idea:

5. Dress it up
Despite the colder weather, wearing a summer dress is still an option – just add tights, a chunky cardigan or leather jacket and your trusty boots. Beautiful!

6. Pencil perfect
A midi-length pencil skirt with a heeled ankle book is a really slick high-fashion look – channel your inner Rihanna for this one:

7. Nip and tuck
Tailored trousers look really classy with a slim line ankle boot (no buckles or thick straps), especially if you show off a touch of skin. This model gets it just right:

8. Get some bling
Embellished ankle boots with details like studs, cut-outs or chunky buckles are a great way to add a grungy, edgy touch to an otherwise basic outfit. We love Emma Roberts’ Chloé pair:



Mittens and gloves may keep you cozy but they are highly impractical in so many ways. All that taking them off and putting them on again? We can't be dealing with that.

These hip flask mittens, available online from the US later this month, might be the answer to our prayers. It's basically a drinking flask built into a snug red glove, perfect for all of your winter boozing needs.

Judging by the ad, these are probably intended for warming hot chocolate after a couple of hours on the slopes, we but predict they'd also come in handy on that blisteringly cold walk from the bus stop to the bar, when you need something a little stronger. But that's just us.

The flask zips into a side pocket on one mitten, allowing you to discretely and comfortable sip on your (possibly alcoholic) beverage of choice. 

Don't get too excited though – the flask holds just about 100ml of liquid so it's not going to keep you going for hours. But beggars can't be choosers!

We're adding these to our Santa list NOW.
