1. Coloured wool
Wool as a fabric is definitely not unusual for this time of year, but often people stick with greys, blacks and browns. To give your wardrobe a style update, make sure you've got some boozy hues like burgundy in your knitwear collection plus I'm also loving teal and bottle green for coats. These shades are still pretty traditional but very on trend this winter. Topman have some great examples right now and a handy style guide.
2. Leather gloves
Leather gloves are by no means just for women and they're so much warmer than fabric versions. This black leather pair are a total bargain from Henri Lloyd, currently reduced from £36 to £18. Plus, order before Friday to get free delivery.
3. Mixed stripes
I've seen a lot of people mixing stripes when styling up outfits lately and it's definitely one style rule that you can break. Kevin Pietersen has been involved with a Children in Need Style Challenge and, after being mentored by designer Ben de Lisi he's created a shirt and tie set to raise money for charity... might be a nice way to earn your stripes and do a good deed at the same time.
4. Boss Bottled
This fragrance remains one of the top selling scents for men and it's just been won the Beauty Awards Fragrance Classic Product 2011. It's such a classic that over 60 million bottles have been sold since its launch in 1998, and a bottle is still sold every 8 seconds. It was also one of the first male fragrances to use vanilla, so give Boss Bottled a try.
5. Oxblood boots
Forget grey, black and brown for boots this winter, the only shade worth stocking up on is oxblood. This dark, rich burgundy hue is top of the trends and will definitely add some style points. These lace up winter boots are by Swear at Sarenza for £119. It's worth taking a look at their other styles too as they are classic shoes with just enough of a twist to make them totally up to date.
