Blogger Picks: A Guide to Your Winter Wardrobe

Here at Monsoon, we love seeing how you style our collections, it inspires us (and many of our social followers we’re sure). We know picking out staples for the season can be overwhelming, so we decided to round up some of our favourite blogger street-style snaps to help you prioritise what to add to your wardrobe – get ready to find your new winter companions…

Layer Up


Number one on all our lists is layers. Opt for styles that add to your look rather than just covering them up with a tailored check coat for wearing every day, and velvet florals for day-to-night flourishes – styled by @fashionenth, she mixes pops of prints and winter essentials perfectly.


Shining Moments


Christmas party to plan for? Sequins are a must! If going head-to-toe isn’t for you, choose finishing touches that will give your ensemble the statement shimmer you’re looking for.

Wear Everywhere


The festive season is full of impromptu events and last-minute invites. Dress the part wherever you go, with outfits you can wear from office meetings to evening drinks. We’re loving how @chloejade_story has put together some of our favourite seasonal styles, finishing each look with a statement clutch.


Make It Work


Your working week made chic! Staying smart in the colder weather can be challenging – go for sleek separates, knitted dresses and heeled ankle boots this winter, for outfits that work as hard as you do.





Prints Gone Wild


The trend that never goes out of style just got a sophisticated refresh. Effortlessly put together by @y.a.t.r.i, leopard prints are becoming a classic and we’re not complaining one bit!


Looks Good, Does Good


Designs taken from our sustainable S.E.W collection, these pieces are made from eco-friendly fabric alternatives such as responsibly sourced organic cotton and LENZING™ ECOVERO™, a planet-friendly alternative to viscose. We’re not the only ones loving these styles, with our star embellished jumper being featured in Stylist’s best Christmas jumpers list.

An Evening with Belle & Bunty


Last week we held an exclusive styling event at our Westfield London White City store with blogging duo Belle & Bunty, where they shared their Monsoon must-haves and ‘ways to wear’ style advice. We didn’t want you to miss out on all the fun, so we’ve jotted down their top 5 styling tips and created a must-read seasonal edit – you’re welcome!


 1. Elevate Your Everyday


“Extremely chic, wear this knitted jumper with jeans or pair with the matching skirt. Finish off the look with black or brown boots, perfect for desk to dinner!”


2. Festive Made Fashion  


“A cool nod to the Christmas jumper, wear this Fairisle knit oversized and tuck into a midi skirt. For a stylish take on festive trends this season.”


3. Add Something Sparkly


“It’s always a good idea to invest in a tailored jacket, and Monsoon does such a good fit. A classic shape with a jazzy touch, this design is a really good piece to wear with jeans, or the matching trousers this Christmas.”


4. Turn Up the Style


“Great for parties! This sheer blouse is perfect for when you want something dressier, but sequins are not your style – wear with a cami underneath and jeans, or with this gorgeous skirt.”


5. Walk on The Wild Side


“We love leopard prints! Velvet is a great alternative to shimmery styles when you want to make a statement and is sure to get you into the festive mood.”
