Welcome the winters in style!
It was not long ago, when big, fat raindrops gave way to the mild blue skies of Autumn and it’s pleasant evenings. And before we realize it, here are the cold knuckles of wintry winds knocking on our doors.
So, it’s time to move the kaftans & shorts to the back of the wardrobe and bring out the woolens & scarves. Some of us dread the advent of winter and feel miserable at the prospect of having to bundle up in thick layers. But, not to worry! Winter can be as stylish as spring or summer, provided you know how to wear & carry all those layers!
Get out all those thick, oversized sweaters your grandma had knitted for you with her own frail hands - chunky knits are in & how! Pair those with tapered pants and an oversized tote and you are good to go!
Layer up in casually put-together pieces of clothing – wear a waistcoat on top of a turtle neck jumper or mix & match smart blazers with sporty tees or casual shirts. Keep your striped mufflers & printed scarves handy for adding that instant chic factor to your outfit. Skull caps, berets, ear muffs make for cool accessories to flaunt during the cold months. Make a statement with vibrant or printed socks, stockings & leggings. Layer shorts & skirts over stockings for a preppy look or channel the coolness quotient by wearing sleeveless, short sleeved & full-sleeved tees one on top of the other.
Style is not only about fashion, but also about quality & comfort. Invest in some good pieces that’ll last you many winters. A smart belted coat in beige, black or red; a pair of black woolen stockings; a striped muffler; a pair of warm gloves; a stylish jacket in a versatile cut; a thick thermal inner; a turtleneck jumper in some dark hue; a tote with space to carry an extra scarf or a light jacket and a pair of sturdy boots in black or tan are some of the indispensible winter wardrobe must-haves that’ll see you through the harsh chill. Stick to materials like cashmere, angora, silk, tweed, flannel, velvet, chenille, jersey & woolicot for maximum warmth & comfort.
Whatever your style, combine the pieces well to turn heads wherever you go! Remember, winter is not about bundling up, but about layering up in style!!!
