Winter Trend Must Haves

So it's here....Winter has well and truly arrived. With Christmas markets popping up everywhere and the sound of Mariah Carey already blasting from every high street store ( guilty! ) its time to fight the cold weather without sacrificing your style!

Below, you’ll find the Rose & Poetry way to introduce the hottest or should we say coolest Winter 18 runway trends into your wardrobe in a wearable way, no matter your own personal style.


Velvet is one of the most luxe textures this year, and it’s definitely a cold-weather favourite. The velvet trend this year shows it’s becoming a vital part of everyday fashion, rather than being reserved for formal evening dresses and Christmas parties.

From eye-catching velvet shoes to velvet dresses and bags, there are so many ways you can incorporate this trend into your wardrobe this winter – like our gorgeous Cascade Dress, incorporating the velvet trend in a funky 70s vibe print.

Style it with heels and a clutch bag for an on trend party look or style it with tights, boots and a cosy winter jacket for a more casual day-to-day look.


Think Clueless but cooler. For autumn/winter 2018, the catwalks were awash with the geometrical print across every kind of item, dresses, tailored trousers, skirts and chunky blanket scarves.

Our Poet Trousers are a great way to introduce the trendy check into your wardrobe. Pair them with a smart shirt and heels for a chic everyday work wear look. Alternatively pair the trousers with a chucky knit like our Cecil sweater, a pair of chunky trainers and our Amy scarf for a great casual daytime look.

Add a splash of colour to the look through your accessories, with a coloured ankle boot, chunky print scarf or bag.


Kick off party season in style. If you can’t wear a sparkly dress at Christmas when can you? Christmas is the time to go extra with your outfit choices to make the most of the festive season. If you’re feeling the trend, our Palliettes dress is perfect for you.

It’s multi colour geometric sequin print is a different take on the full sequin dress. It’s a great combination of glitz with a casual cut to counteract the sparkle. The magenta jersey finish neckline is another casual touch with a lovely pop of colour.

Pair with sock boots and clutch for a Christmas party look or chunky trainers and denim jacket for the blogger look.


Is there anything cozier than shearling? We think not. This fuzzy fabric has been a mainstay for the A/W season for many years. This ultra plush fabric has made the leap to the runway, and is receiving some well-deserved recognition this season. Make a statement and embrace the shearling trend with our Jacqui Jacket.

This gorgeous wrap coat is totally on-trend with its asymmetric zip, belted waist and faux lined collar and cuffs. The gorgeous cream colour is so versatile; you can add any colour to it.

Style it with jeans a printed blouse and ankle boots for a perfect daytime look. Or to change it up pair it with a chunky knit sweater, checked skirt, knee boots and a gorgeously glitzy pom hat.

Pleated Skirts

The pleated skirt trend is one you definitely won't want to miss this season. With its longer length and cinched waist the popular pleated maxi skirt flatters all figures.

The MSC Aquarius Skirt is a great way to introduce this fab trend into your wardrobe. Style it with a fine knit, ankle boots and jacket for a trendy day outfit. Or for that day to night party season look, style with our sparkle sweater, glitzy heels and embellished bag for that perfect Christmas party look.

Chunky Knits

There's something so indefinably cosy and comforting about pulling a giant knit thing over your head on days when the wind-chill feels unsurvivable and instantly experiencing a sensation of woolly warmth. It almost makes me wish summer would end sooner... almost.

From turtlenecks to crewnecks, sweaters to knits, the variations are endless. A perfect example of an winter warmer, is our embellished Bead Knit.

Wear with ripped jeans and ankle boots for the perfect casual weekend look or amp it up by pairing it with leather skirt or our wet look skinnies and sleek heeled booties and MSC Tara biker jacket. However you style a chunky knit, you're bound to feel like your pulling on a wearable hug.

So thats it guys, we hope this little run down has helped you get ready to step out into the cold in style and look as cool as the temperature.
