Winter Fashion

Winter has finally set in and as the days are growing colder the fashion is only going to get hotter. Every winter season comes the time to say goodbye to our beloved summer clothing, but don’t fret, for you can still have a lot of fun with your wardrobe during the icy months ahead.

 Key themes

Plaid Patterns, 60s inspired styles and Boudoir fashions are trends to look out for. Digital prints and embellishments are also going to make for some great staple pieces. Powerful, edgy and always evolving, 2014 trends are the most versatile and experimental by far.

 Ladylike Lace

Lace will be a major contender in the fashion stakes this winter. Perfect for creating a feminine edge to any outfit, lace garments will be in high demand. Lace pencil skirts, blouses and dresses are guaranteed to look fantastic when paired with faux or real leather material (boots, jacket or pants). A lace shift dress teamed with tights will also ensure you are both warm and fashionable.

 Layering Sheer

Sheer material masters the art of displaying a bit of skin whilst still remaining sophisticated. When worn incorrectly sheer can come across as a bit cheap, when worn correctly it can propel your outfit into another universe. Layer chiffon pieces on top of one another to create an ethereal appearance. When going to an event, team the sheer garment with a gold blazer.

 Shoes

Pointy flats and boots are going to be your go to style this winter season. Always on trend, boots are the perfect example of effortless chic. Whether they’re flat or heeled, boots can easily dress an outfit up or down depending on the style.  A good pair of boots is extremely versatile, reliable and will help to protect you when it comes to braving the cold on a rainy day.

 Winter Brights

Pink Hues, blues and orange tones will be your must-have colours for winter. Just because it is colder doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of fun with your fashion choices. Choose brighter and bolder tones to spite the wintry weather. Look pretty in pink with pastel blue to produce a gorgeous ensemble. When it comes to make up, dark brown smokey eyes and deep red lips will be the look of the season. Bold orange lipstick is another popular look.

Your best investment for the season would have to be a long tailored jacket, purchase a beautiful coat and a pair of ankle boots and you will be set for the big freeze.

4. Instead of the usual little black dress why not try the little blue dress. Electric blue is taking over and has quickly become this season’s hottest shade. Navy and teal look great with every skin tone, so make sure you add a blue dress to your list next time you are in need of some retail therapy.
