10 winter essentials: How to look your fabulous best this season

Winter has arrived! Now, contrary to popular belief, winter fashion does not have to be boring. Winter is not an excuse for looking like a shapeless slob underneath those layers of clothing. It’s the time to experiment, mix and match, and whip up the perfect outfit to let go of the winter blues and brighten up the dull days. Here’s what you need to stay warm yet utterly chic this season: 

1. A warm pea-coat:

Pea-coats are military style coats which come in various styles, colours and lengths ranging from mid length to calf length. A winter coat doesn't always have to be black or brown. Take a look at these lust worthy yellow, coral and green colour pea coats. They look absolutely gorgeous as they provide a perfect pop of colour yet will keep you cozy and warm. Talk about being comfortable in style!

2. Over-sized sweater:
Over-sized sweaters are utterly cute, warm, comfy and snug. They can be worn in a variety of ways and can go with any outfit or clothing. Accessorize your sweater with a cute scarf or shape them up with a belt and pair it with leggings and boots. You can never go wrong with this classic combination!

3. Boots:
It’s officially the boots season! Boots are an absolute must have in any girl’s winter wardrobe. There are so many styles of boots to experiment with- ankle, mid calf, knee high, over the knee, combat, cowboy style, Uggs…. the list is endless. Wear your boots with cozy woollen socks or leg warmers for that extra warmth. Your feet will thank you!

4. Bright pants:
Bright pants are not necessarily meant to be worn in spring or summer. They look equally amazing when worn in winters with coats, boots and scarves. So scoop up a pair of bright coloured jeans or pants and rock the winter scene. Mint, hot pink, cobalt blue, orange, red, and yellow are hot colours!

5. Leather leggings:
Basic leggings are so boring. Leather leggings are the new thing! They are very much in right now and look amazing. Real leather tends to be pricey so if you want something more affordable buy a pair of faux leather leggings or pants which are available at Zara, Mango, Topshop, French Connection, River Island and other major high street stores. Pair them with a blazer and a sequin top and heels for a night time look or a warm coat and boots or loafers/oxfords for a day time look.

6. Scarves:

No winter outfit is complete without the addition of a cute, warm scarf. There are a gazillion styles of scarves out there in loads of colours and fun prints. Also, there are so many ways you can wear your scarf. It instantly elevates your outfit. Fringe scarves, skull and animal print scarves and bright neon colours look gorgeous. My personal favourite is a classic Burberry scarf with its signature print. You can never go wrong with that!

7. Gloves:
Don’t you just love that warmth a pair of gloves give to your hands? No matter how much you layer up with your woollen clothes, if your hands are bare you are bound to feel cold. Gloves complete a winter outfit. They come in a wide variety of materials and designs- woollen, leather, cashmere etc. Studded leather gloves are in vogue right now. They add a touch of edginess to your outfit and are great to spice up your look.

8. A Beanie:

Benies are so adorable! Not only do they look cute but they also help protect your hair and ears from the chilly winter wind. They come in different materials, colours and styles. A woollen, cashmere or fur beanie is best suited for winters.

9. Leather Jackets:

The biker chic trend is massive this fall/winter. Leather jackets are a must have in every girl’s wardrobe. They are absolutely versatile as they can be worn with jeans, dresses, pants, skirts, leggings, maxis… you name it. And they come in loads of colours and designs. Just like leather leggings, leather jackets too come in real and faux leather. This season, studded/spiked leather jackets are in… They look smokin’ hot!

10. Stockings:
Okay so now that winters are here… its time to whisk away all your cute summer dresses, skirts and shorts. Right? Hell no! Pair them with a gorgeous pair of stockings, scarf, jacket and boots and voila … you’ve winterized your summer clothes. Stockings come in a gazillion colours, prints and materials. Heart print ones are adorable!
