This winter might look set to be a tough one, with many travel restrictions still in place and varying levels of limitations on socialising for us all. But, that’s not to say all is lost. We’re all about making the most of what’s in front of us, which means preparing ourselves as well as we can for a great British winter. To help, we’ve put together a checklist of sorts with one of our favourite high street destinations for affordable trend-focused buys, Monki. 

From cosy puffer coats and winter layers to keep you warm whilst you brave the pub garden or a socially-distanced walk with friends, to Zoom-ready (read: comfy and jazzy on top) partywear for festive digital catch-ups, think of this as your winter 2020 capsule collection. Of course, there’s also some loungewear in there, and Monki’s offering is one of the best we’ve found on the high street, with minimalist designs and interesting colour ways, matching sets and chic separates (we’ll take the knitted trousers please). It’s not all about practical basics though, sometimes a great statement accessory and some matching lingerie is all it takes for a much needed pick-me-up, something that has become just as essential for its mood-boosting properties this year. 

So, keep scrolling to shop seven key categories Monki has nailed this winter, that will arm you with all you need to see you through until next spring.
