11 'sensible' fashion items we can't live without this winter

Section: Fashion

Mum's we are urging you to dress sensibly this Winter.

No, we don't mean dowdy jumpers and mumsy prints. Just because you're a mum doesn't mean you have to forgo fashion sense. It is time, however, to shop smarter. Switch fast fashion trends for wardrobe staples that will see you all year around and get you more bang for buck. 

We are envisaging a neutral colour palette, good quality basics and garments that will go with all the stuff you already own, meaning more money for you/gin. 

Here are 11 fashion bits we can't live without, that may be sensible, but oh-so-very-needed in your wardrobe:
