Currently Coveting: Urban Outfitters

Basically coveting anything warm-looking as it's about 1 degree in England right now.

Back with another 'Currently Coveting' this afternoon, this time looking at Urban Outfitters. I really like doing these post because it collates my current style and what I'm liking for the season - additionally making it easier for me to shop these items (hoping for a few end-of-year sales steals).

Most of the clothes I've picked out have the cold season in mind and probably made me feel slightly warmer just by looking at them on a screen. Sadly I didn't find any shoes I was enamoured with (I love shoes, what a bummer), however there's still some great stuff in UO at the moment.

I found two really cute dresses and a very season appropriate playsuit. The playsuit is probably my favourite of the three, being a simple wrap design but in black velvet (heart eyes everywhere). If there was one single neck line for me to wear for the rest of my life, it would be a deep v-neck, so this one is very me. The first dress is also velvet, but has this great autumnal floral print. I'm pretty sure my Grandma used to have two armchairs in this exact print, so pretty retro, but nevertheless on trend. The long flared sleeves speak to me. Lastly, is a sweet red number, which personally I think screams Christmas in a warm country. It's super pretty, and summery yet seasonally appropriate. Another v-neck / wrap design combo - I love it.

Let's be honest, this season is jumpers and one shirt. So let's start with the shirt. A classic deep red flannel shirt, a nice long length, and something I definitely owned in black three years ago (I'm sure I've still got it somewhere). Sweet, simple and something we could all do with.

So the jumpers. Let's start with this preppier number. Navy is a great colour all year round, so combined with a couple of other colour mixed in with stripes AND a cosy funnel neck, what more could you want? Has a big 90s vibe but nevertheless adds a sassy edge to a winter necessity. Next is this gorgeous mustard pointelle jumper. Bar the colour, this reminds me of the kind of thing my Grandma used to knit (she was very ahead of her time). It's a beautiful jumper and the colour selection is great too, with a pale pink and blue option in addition to the brighter yellow. This fisherman jumper featured in my 'Best Jumpers' blog post recently, and I think since I've mentioned it twice now it's a done deal that I'm going to buy it. Very classic, very needed.


In terms of trousers, I'm kind of in love with these satin culottes. The floral detail is beautiful and really understated - not too bold and in your face. Plus a drawstring waist and pockets make these ideal comfort wise. I also really like these wide leg jacquard trousers. The pattern is very subtle but adds something seasonal and wintery. Again, they have a drawstring waist - perfect if your waist is small in proportion to your thighs (me), and generally more comfy and flattering.


This teddy / puffer style coat looks like the cosiest thing ever. Just looking at it makes me feel warmer. It's very on trend, both with the style and material (I recently got a teddy coat from New Look via ASOS and I never want to take it off). A worthwhile investment piece for this season and many to come.


Wintertime is certainly the best time for loungewear, as when you're not glammed up for a seasonal event, it's more than likely you're tucked up at home watching a Christmas film or in bed with a book. These joggers look so snug; the jersey material would be nice and warm, with cuffed ankles to keep the heat in. Exactly the kind of thing I'd pair with this lilac raglan top. A loose fit, but with long sleeves, this is very similar to the jumper I'm wearing as I write this post (though this purple is so much prettier than my dull grey one).

Have you found any great winter clothes at Urban Outfitters recently? Or any other shops you'd recommend I take a look in?

Until next time.
