On a Sunday of grey skies and even duller winterwear in Oxford, Emma’s on trend ensemble of nude tones and slouchy knitwear was a breath of fresh air. By pairing her Topshop body-con skirt with a cosy beige jumper, she kept the look casual whilst achieving the holy grail of winter dressing – warm and stylish.

‘Oxford on a Saturday’ uniform of jeans, Uggs and a hoodie and, while showing off her long legs in a mini-skirt, the flat over-the-knee boots kept her outfit young and relavant to this season’s trends. While the new season pastel tones are causing big fashion ripples, it’s still far too cold for floaty skirts and blouses so neutral knitwear and black opaque tights like Emma’s are a great way to try out the look early. For more spring inspiration, shorts of all shapes and materials are set to be huge, so get your legs out in a well cut pair while keeping toasty with some wooly tights and winter boots.
