If you’ve followed my blog you’ll know my love of colour in my clothes knows no bounds. Joules also live and breathe colour; from their bold floral print wellington boots to their neon pop detailing, and like me, they’re Brits who’ve ventured over the pond to the USA, so I was delighted to be invited to judge their exciting Design Your Own Welly competition! A great opportunity for all you fans of colour to have a go at creating your own print, with the chance to win a luxury break worth up to $10,000, plus your design in stores.
This year I released Front Roe, a style bible drawing from my own experiences with fashion and make up. The book encourages readers to go on a journey to find their own personal style. Finding your fashion staples for the season is a great starting point, so I thought I’d share with you my top Joules picks for a capsule winter wardrobe. Whether in New York or London, on a bracing winter walk with my dog, or an evening stroll with friends, these are my six go-to winter essentials.
Joules rainwear goes beyond wellington boots. Their Right As Rain coats offer protection from the elements without sacrificing style. The Gayle parka is a must for those chillier days; lightweight but waterproof with a faux fur half lining to see you right through winter feeling downright toasty!
The most versatile of all accessories; the oversized blanket scarf. Worn as a shawl, a cape, or a scarf, it’s a wardrobe essential for the chillier days of fall. Choose one with neon or bold colours to brighten a monochrome outfit.
That most iconic of British footwear, the wellington boot. Whether in New York or London, there’s always a chance of rain, and thankfully Joules has a huge range welly designs to cater for everyone. I love these glossy black boots with mustard detailing, perfect with indigo skinny jeans. Just add puddles!
Autumn is for layering, and a great foundation for a layered look is an oversized boyfriend shirt. Again, worn with slim fit or skinny jeans to break up the shapes and stop the outfit looking bulky.
