8 Stylish Influencers Just Shared Their Ultimate Winter Wish Lists With Me

As we find ourselves on the cusp of winter with a bounty of beautiful cold-weather staples filling our favourite new-in sections, even the most assured shoppers will inevitably need a helping hand to whittle down the options. Unsurprisingly, designers like The Row and Toteme have nailed the brief, delivering classic winter fashion that feels well worth the investment. On the other end of the spectrum, high-street brands such as Arket and Mango are providing seasonal staples at a much lower price point. Whether you're on a budget or seeking some luxury additions to your wardrobe, it's worth reflecting on the pieces you lived in last November through to January—this will ensure anything you buy now will get the wear it deserves.

Perhaps a glimpse at what others are adding to their winter arsenal will kick-start your shopping itinerary. I consulted a handful of influencers who I knew would be making wise purchases right about now, and their wish lists are just as covetable as you would expect. Glancing through each of them, certain themes became clear. The first is the colour red—shades of crimson and scarlet are already everywhere this season. And the second thing I noticed? Influencers are all about COS right now, which is great news for us. 

Read on for eight curated wish lists to inspire your own winter wardrobe.
