Gilet gem: Liz Hurley has winter style all wrapped up

With temperatures dropping outside, it's time to fit your fashion to the colder climate. When you're searching for some sartorial inspiration, look no further than celebrity street style. Elizabeth Hurley was recently spotted looking fierce despite the weather as she strolled around London in a cosy parka and all-black ensemble.

The actress and model added a bit of extra height to her long legs with a pair of stylish ankle boots, finishing this classy look with a loose and flowing hairdo and glamorous oversized sunnies. Charitable as well as chic, Liz has been busy promoting Breast Cancer Awareness for Estée Lauder, a cause that she's supported for almost 20 years. Seems her heart's as warm as her outfit, so channel her style and don't forget to join in with the campaign.

Gilet joy

Warm, wearable and edgy, it's no wonder the gilet has transitioned from the slopes to the streets. Wear over long-sleeved jumpers for a cosy look that works well in the transitional weather, when everyone is looking for warm winter coats to keep out the chills. Choose understated khaki or neutral black, or go brighter with a bold blue number or a pattern. Quilted fabric makes these a great insulating layer while a hood is certainly handy for those surprise showers. Alternatively, opt for a padded design that's less bulky but still toasty, like this Freda Parka gilet

In the jeans

When you're pulling together a casual outfit, black is a simple and sophisticated shade to start with. Slimming, versatile and always in style, it's no wonder everyone keeps coming back to this fabulous colour. Although Liz is known to be a fan of white jeans in summer, a darker denim is more appropriate for winter. You can recreate her look with these flattering Next skinny jeans and add a slim-fit jumper.

Booted up

Liz's understated boots add a touch of class to her casual combo of jeans and gilet. Ankle styles work well in autumn, as they'll keep your feet high and dry and work with a range of outfits. Team with your favourite floral dress for a pretty, feminine look that's also weatherproof. For practical weekend wear, channel Liz and tuck skinny jeans into your boots, or go for classic bootcuts to make legs look longer.

Lovely locks

Get that final touch of celebrity glamour with your hair and make-up. Before Kate Middleton sashayed onto the scene with her spotlight-stealing locks, Elizabeth Hurley was setting the standard for glossy and immaculate hair. The gentle waves create a refined but laid-back look that's carried on with the understated jewellery and nude pink lipstick. It's no surprise that Liz opts for those large sunglasses as a defense against the photographer's flashbulbs, so grab a pair of your own to carry off her celebrity swagger.
