Hot stuff for the winter
Winter chill is in the air! Stack up on style and warm up your wardrobe with our picksfashion and trends Updated: Nov 09, 2013 18:03 IST
The smell of winter is infused with a mix of nostalgia and dreams of endless nights under blankets and steaming cups of tea. But, for the fashion corps, its all about looking smug stylish to combat the snooty chill.
For your casual days, we pick cropped jackets in bright hues to keep you going along with capes that set you apart instantly. To keep you warm on cocktail evenings, there are knee-length boots to make you look feisty. And for glamorous days out where you don’t want to disappear under layers of clothes — classic pea coats and suits for women — complete with pocket squares and bowties for mastering androgyny with an stylish attitude.
One indulgence for the cold days — delicious boots. Like singer Rita Ora, take them till your knees to up your style ante. We love versions which are quilted in basic browns and black. We also love how the crooner has styled them, but you could always go for more colour. Just remember, don’t go for combat versions when they are this high and ditch heels completely. Keep them flat or wedged.
For your glamorous dos, androgyny is our pick. From three-piece classics to blazers cinched at the waist, and dinner jackets for the ladies off set with ankle length boots or crisp black heels, makes for a woman who is part business and part fun. Polka dots, houndstooth patterns and plaid is the way to go apart from classic monochrome.
You must have seen their biker versions, but when it comes to cropped jackets, they are undoubtedly the easiest way to do sexy on a daily basis.
It’ll keep you warm and it’ll keep you stylish. While the belted trench coat makes for a chic winter staple, pick gold buttoned pea coats for a more laid back vibe.
Be a style superhero by picking a cape coat. They don’t only look Anna Wintour-ish but are the perfect way to cover up without looking overwhelmed.
