Top Winter Styling Tips of 2023
Pawan Gupta, CEO and Co-Founder, Fashinza shared with HT Digital five styling tips to ace the winter look.
1. Bomber Jackets- But Make it Blouson Tops
The versatile Bomber Jackets have been ruling the fashion industry for several seasons. Its casual and transeasonal appeal that has everyone wrapped has specially made a mind-blogging impact on the youth market by its recent iteration that has blurred the lines between outerwear and innerwear. The update on the classic utility bomber with the voluminous blouson top, starring shirt collars, deep rib hem and zipped closures grants the piece its flexibility, allowing it to be worn as a top or a jacket, delivering ephemeral value through multiple styling choices.
2. THE DTC (Denim Top Coat)- Beyond the Age of Long Black Coats (LBC)
There is no doubt that the LBC is a fashion statement and a wardrobe must-have, but in the age of experimentation and uniqueness it's high time to invest in the Denim Topcoat, to look like a distinct fashion goddess in that minimalistic structured blue trench. As consumers seek multi-use items with longevity, the Denim Topcoat emerges as the perfect throw at transeasonal pieces. This refreshing take on box coat shapes in clean denim washes can work for a sartorial look but can also be fitted into elongated versions of trucker jackets for a more casual occasion.
3. Structured Barrel Leg Jeans- Time for Blue Hues
A more relaxed style culture has been on the horizon, with Baggy Denims leading the race given the revival of 90’s style and noughties nostalgia. Denim has been one of the most popular and timeless materials used in the fashion realm, which is why it is only going to continue in the winter episodes as well. Blending comfort, style and newness the curved barrel leg silhouettes provide baggy-leg jeans more structure. Its polished capability capitalises on Business Casuals, adding instant bursts of confidence. With the right fit, it looks flattering on diverse body types boosting body positivity.

And what can be a better attire than a plaid-suiting blazer to paint the art of subtlety? Extremely simple to pair, from trousers to mini skirts the styling options are manifold. The Plaid design not only adds depth and tone to the blazer but integrates beautifully with luxuriance and serenity.
5. Shearling Shackets- Faux Alert
A classical style that will always be trending but even more so this winter is Shearling but in Shackets. While shearling jackets, coats and trenches have become commonplace, revamp your outfit by adding some magic to it with Shearling Shackets. Being extremely practical and chic, this season's shearling shackets are packed with Faux Alert. Given the rising environmental damage, fashion mavens are shifting towards vegan fabric choices, which is why there is no need to look no further than Faux Shearling Shackets.
