Well, it feels like winter has finally arrived on the island with some chilly breezes and even the odd rain shower. Check out these items that will help you face the cooler weather with style.
The pleated skirt, defined by long thick flaps in a fringe-like style (that reminds us of car wash bands), is a hot trend for the cold season. If you want to add some drama to your look, this is a great option, its flaps will move intensely while you walk to mark your presence. For office-appropriate attire, pick a style with slits that start just above the knee and don’t open entirely like this Salvatore Ferragamo number.
Culottes were a major style trend in the ‘70s characterised by their above-the-ankle hemline and wide legs. Now they’re back, finished in wool, leather and thick jersey (typical winter fabrics), they’re the perfect pick to show off your cool boots. Get inspired by Tommy Hilfiger’s twist on the trend and pair with tights and vintage shoes.
The duster coat is the covering of choice for many Hollywood celebrities this season. They’ve definitely been influenced by the number of floor-length coats spotted on the catwalks. Made in different materials, but with variations of wool as its main base, this coat warms and gives savoir-faire to any look. This Massimo Dutti item is spot on trend.
Talking about cold weather, the blanket scarf is the coolest new item to add to your winter wardrobe. This design is also a great pick for our mild winter as it can be either a trusty warmer or stylish accessory. This Parfois plus-size scarf will certainly add a fashionable spin to your white shirt and jeans uniform.
If you’ve been waiting the whole year to wear your comfy galoshes, now’s the time! Current trends suggest knee high, however ankle length is never out of style. To look super trendy, opt for lace up designs and chunky heels, they go very well with mid-length skirts, culottes and skinny trousers. Chloe has a selection of must-have items that need to be checked out!
The It Bag
The truth is that there’s more than one very desirable handbag on our wish list this season. The array of options high-end brands bring to their catwalk shows makes the It Bag a democratic field, leaving us free to opt for the style we love most. We chose an M Missoni as our handbag of the moment showing embroidered fabric and colourful chains can lift a day-to-day look. Next month we’ll probably be falling for another jaw-dropping design; because we can!
