It is that time of the year where temperature is dropping and you just want to layer
like you don’t care. So here is a low down on how to look hot when it is cold and
the fashion do’s and don’ts of AW18
Parkas, puffas, cardis, blankets, double or even triple coats…options for swathing
yourself in layers of coverage are endless. But if you want to jump on board the
new seasons trend train, ditch your average leather, denim and bomber jackets
and switch to long double breasted wool coats (camel color is a winner this year)
and shearling coats. These timeless designs are so elegant as well as practical. It
will keep you cozy and warm while oozing some sophistication.
Time to grab that parka out if you are living in a place where winter means constant
rain and “waterproof” is the buzzword of the season. But if you are to walk on
thin ice and mess your hair-do from chilly winds opt for an oversized puffer jacket.

Ditch That Denim
As much as we like denim on denim like the Hadid sisters, save it for the Spring
season. Spread some bottom half love and update your trouser wardrobe with
some subtle coated leather pants. Also thick plaid and tartan skirts are hit this year
and you can totally chill away from the chill if you pair them with thermal leggings.
Leave the sheerly-there tops for Summer. You can wear these AW bottoms with
chunky knit jumpers instead of sheer blouses.
You can still keep your AW wardrobe light, fun and bubbly with some super trendy
maxi dresses and skirts.

Satin A-line skirts and glitter pleated midi skirts are a perfect choice to get dressy
Many designers opted for a wild take on prints this year so all high street brands
replicated this, meaning which you can get your hands on everything animal print
(leopard, zebra, snake) anywhere this winter. A long sleeve animal print dress is a
perfect choice for work or play and you can layer it up when the climate changes.
Head To Toe
Kick your boots up a notch and toss your kitten heels, gladiator sandals and ankle
straps to the back of the closet. Put a sock in it and opt for some sock boots. Higher
the heels closer to heaven, but if you are not a fan of stiletto opt for some block
heel leather boots to elevate your looks. Bottom line, winter is for unexposed toes
and cozy knit socks.
Give up those skater trainers and add some bulky and thicker trainer options to
unfreeze your toes. Most commonly known as ‘dad shoes’ these nostalgic shaped
soles are a total vibe now. It is also super friendly as it comes with cleated soles
(avoids slips and dips on winter grounds) and thick padding. You can style it with
anything from trousers to dresses to skirts.
While many of us would love to channel Kylie Jenner in a sports luxe look with a
baseball cap, it is not so versatile in less warmer weathers..unless you spend winter
on the Equator. Knit beanies are a winter classic and the most functional headpiece
for cold seasons. Of course they come in many styles (bejeweled, sparkle,
multi textured etc..) and colors to mix and match with all your favorite outfits.
Put a oliver twist on your head gear game and be sure to add some baker boy hats
and some 1980s-tastic colorful berets to your winter wardrobe. These always come
and go out of style but never extinct.
