With every changing season comes a change in your fashion wardrobe. Winters are almost here, and it’s time to stuff your fashion trunk with latest winter trends. From jackets, oversized sweaters, ponchos, woollen skirts to stylish accessories like scarves, funky boots, big belts and textured tights, it’s all about mixing and matching the right way to create a perfect look. HT City asks designers what’s hot and what’s not, this season...

Smart boyfriend jacket
Get the look:
Designer Ashima Singh says, “Boyfriend jacket looks best with short dresses. Or you can also wear it with a nice fitted shirt and slim pants paired with high heels, bracelet and earrings. Another interesting way of wearing them is with textured tights and long top.”
What to avoid:
Such jackets should never be worn with trousers or even long skirts.

Stylish sweater dress
Get the look:
“Thigh-high or knee-length woollen dresses paired with tights look awesome. They are a must-have this season. What is important here is, to accessorise them with a nice belt bag, ballerinas and complete the look with a big day bag,” says designer Anjalee Kapoor.
What to avoid:
Scarves are a big no-no with sweater dresses.

Cool over-sized cardigan
Get the look: “Considering the season, I would strictly advice on going for long over-sized cardigans. Team them up with a nice dress or a pair of jeans, high boots and a stylish bag. You can also team them up with a waist belt,” says designer Ankita Chaudhary
What to avoid:
Don’t team them with loose bottoms, they look voluminous and boring.

Pretty ponchos
Get the look:
“This winter, woollen ponchos are going to be a huge hit. The long ponchos look very chic and stylish. Wear them with leggings or your skinny jeans. Accessorise them with a waist belt, a long rope chain and stylish fur boots,” says designer Pam Mehta
What to avoid:
As ponchos are loose on top, team them up with lesser volume bottoms.

Classy woollen skirt
Get the look:
Designer Reynu Taandon says, “Long, short or calf-length woollen skirts are going to be a rage this winter. Pair them up with stockings and high heels. Even the short skirts with tall boots, paired with black polo neck look classy. Finish the look with a cool pair of glasses and a cocktail ring.”
What to avoid:
Keep things minimal and simple with these skirts. Avoid gaudy jewellery and big bags. Also, keep away from the shinny jackets, especially the silk ones this season
