Fashion forecast for winter


Your trench or mine

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008

Channel Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly with a trenchcoat that can make any winter outfit look flawless. Trenchcoats are a timeless investment and a must-have for any self-respecting fashionista. Buy a trench coat in a sturdy fabric that can withstand the wet weather conditions and looks equally at home over a dress or over pants.

Hat to happen

Hats and scarves make a welcome return this winter. Scarves take a luxurious turn with leather, suede or fake fur trims. Choose from a range of winter head gear such as beanies, berets or bucket hats. Great for bad hair days or protecting your hair from the cold climate but instantly give you a fashion forward look.

Mimco boots

Boots are something that you simply cannot do without in winter. Boots are fashionable at any length whether they are an ankle boot, a three-quarter length or knee-high boots. They work well over skinny jeans or under dresses. The ankle boot is a keeper this season. Try a fringed ankle boot for an up to the minute look.

Swing into winter

Tiger Lily smock dress

Paint the town red in a smock, trapeze dresses and A-line dresses which are a smart, casual look that can take you straight from work to play when teamed up with opaque tights and a few bold accessories. Be daring in an orange or bright colour or play it safe in black, cream or neutral colours. Team up your ensemble with a platform wedge or chunky heels. Try Runway Girl for a good selection of winter dresses.

What’s the skinny

Skinny jeans are holding strong as a winter fashion staple. Wear your boots over your jeans or with pumps for a more sophisticated look. You may want to opt for darker denim such as a grey or black colour to brave the cold winter nights.

Supersize me

Whilst a simple clutch or medium size handbag may suffice for summer, a larger bag is recommended for winter. A large tote can carry your work documents, a book and emergency winter items such as tissues, spare stockings and hair products to get you through the day. Buy a bag with character that personifies you and makes a strong statement.

    I love winter dressing … the opaque stockings, chunky shoes & warm winter coats. There are so many things I’m lemming at the moment.

    I agree. Winter dressing is so easy and there are so many great suggestions in this article.
