SPONSORED: An urban lifestyle inspires Trenery’s smart and sophisticated New Classics Collection. 

This month, Trenery introduces a new take on greens with revitalised shades of aloe and reed. These acidic tones are contrasted with warm sesame and camel, grounded with black, white and grey.

Print stories range from abstracted florals to chain and geo motifs of varying scales, keeping winter dressing fresh and compelling.

Knitwear and outerwear are the key investments in the latest collection, which includes a mix of Trenery classics as well as the introduction of new silhouettes, yarns and textures.

See some of the key pieces, as styled by stylist Pippa Leenstra, below. Shop the looks HERE and scroll down for a Q&A with Pippa on how to put together the essential winter wardrobe.

Q&A with Pippa Leenstra

Pippa is a personal stylist who studied at the London College of Fashion. Her business is centred on simplifying the process of getting dressed each day and she loves providing practical tips to real women, both in person and through her Instagram account, @Style_It_Simple. The first step, she says, is building a minimalist wardrobe. ‘If you have only items that you love, getting dressed in the morning is a joy! You don’t have to waste time or energy on sifting through the unloved items that are physically and emotionally cluttering your space.’

But remember:
 ‘A minimalist wardrobe does not have to be half empty, or pared down, or consist of black, white and grey items only!’

1. What were you most drawn to in Trenery’s latest collection?

‘I loved the coats as well as the knitted dress, and I’m a sucker for a soft leather jacket.’

2. What timeless investment pieces are a must for every winter wardrobe?

‘Knitwear is worth investing in. Good quality knitwear feels luxurious and elevates the experience of getting dressed. I also like to invest in boots as I’m all about comfort. Beautifully crafted boots will last you for years, which ultimately simplifies your life as you won’t need to go out and buy more each season. Leather jackets are also a worthwhile investment as they can literally be in your wardrobe forever.’

3. What knitwear details are you looking for this season?

‘Colour, texture and details make getting dressed so much more interesting. I will always love neutrals as they’re timeless, but a pop of bright colour is great for those days when you need a mood lift! Subtle details like cabling, mock necks and gentle billowed sleeves all add something “extra” to the garment.’

4. What winter accessory would you reach for to elevate your look?

‘I’m into outerwear this winter – coats and jackets. Think jeans and a basic knit or tee with a standout coat to elevate the overall look.’
