Winter Fashion Wish Lists 2009: What’s on yours?


It’s hard to believe it, but September is already drawing to a close, so we’d imagine most of you (in the Northern Hemisphere at least) are probably starting to dig out your winter fashions, if you haven’t already.

What’s on your fashion wish lists for this year, though? At the moment, The Fashion Police are lusting after…

Thigh-High Boots – yes, we know they’re not the easiest items to wear, but your outfits from our recent Style Challenge on this subject tipped us over the edge and made us want a pair. We’ll probably go for “just over the knee” rather than true thigh highs, though: we know our limits!

Biker jackets – ideally by Rick Owens, but we’ll settle for a good high street copy.

Boyfriend cardigans – yup, this is the second year running we’ve had these on our list, but with good reason: they’re totally versatile, good over jeans or dresses, and, most importantly, keep us warm. We’ll have one in every colour of the rainbow, please.

Jersey dresses – we particularly love the striped one from Topshop shown above, but jersey dresses in any colour are a staple part of our winter wardrobes: they’re so easy to wear, and can be dressed up or down as required.

Over-the-knee socks: Great under dresses and knee high boots – wear them over contrasting tights if you don’t fancy them on their own.

Brightly coloured tights – they just make everything more interesting.

Cocktail rings – the bigger, the better.

These are a few of OUR favourite things for this winter (although not all to be worn at the same time, necessarily), but what about you. What’s on your winter fashion wish list?

    At the moment, I’m wanting a full, high-waisted, wool, hound’s tooth skirt, a pair of purple ankle boots, and a pair of over the knee flat suede boots, and a military jacket with elaborate frog clasps.

    mm… I think I need:
    first of all: black/dark grey suede ankle boots(something with straps or an occasional buckle)
    a close fitting biker jacket
    A new pair of perfect black trousers that go with anything
    a pair or two of Cacharel’s great tights.

    Ankle boots, biker jacket, thigh-high boots, a nice bikini (I know, not winter at all), sequined leggings…

    I would love a pair of flat purple suede knee boots, because I’m too short and curvy to do thigh-highs. I would also love more tights and some good winter skirts and heels.
