So I just realized that most of you guys have been hit by the winter season a while ago already, which is not the case on my side of the world where its been relatively warm until just a few days ago, thanks to this global warming person.
And talking about winter… Winter and I have what I like to call a “love-hate relationship” because it not only gives me a few extra kilos, but I also enjoy the warm lovely food that one gets to tuck in. Is it just me or does anyone else think that winter clothes are ridiculously expensive considering that you only need them for like 3 months?!
Anyhu, it is cold and it is going to get colder until we hit spring time, so until then we need to keep our gorgeous selves warm and we need to look fab while we at it. A lot of people have that “as long as I am warm” attitude during winter, if I see any of you guys looking like that I will just scream.
So, here are a few winter must haves…
I will start with my firm favourite this winter, all because I managed to find myself a pair that zips all the way up to the end. It is…wait for it… The Riding Boots. For the past three years I’ve been trying to find the perfect pair. You get them in genuine leather; they are nice and comfy, and will last you a lifetime.
Another item that’s been keeping us warm for a couple of years now and I must say, they still look gorgeous… The beloved Trench Coat. Long or short they just do a really great job in keeping the chills away and the best part about them is that you can dress them up or down.
HEAD FOR THE CAPE
Behold, I think this is the seasons most glam item: the Cape. This 60s inspired baby really works well when layering different items or textures underneath because it gives you that space and allowance. I personally like the cropped version with a bit military detailing.
And what is winter without our beloved scarves. If you are like me and love scarves, and even wear them in summer, you’ll be glad that you can rock your scarf the whole day without breaking in a sweat. They also come in different fabrics too. You can choose between a scarf or a snood (those scarves with no beginning or end).
THE GOOD OLD JERSEY
Yes, these little knitted babies are back with a bang and they are getting chunkier and chunkier with beautiful graphics and designs too. They also look good dressed down in jeans.
MAKING A STATEMENT
If you like to be bold and be noticed, this one is for you. The fur coats are for you. They are very glam and elegant. They work well with jeans and killer stilettos or glam it up with formal dresses, for a formal evening out.
THE CASUAL/SPORTY CHICS
There is nothing I love more than dressing down in sweats and sneakers or flat pumps. Another item that is making a big hit are baseball sweaters.
OTHER ITEMS TO KEEP US WARM
The opague tights, they come in beautiful colours to add life to any outfit. They work well with anything short or long and even jeans. They actually add life to any outfit.
So ladies, keep your beautiful selves gorgeous and drink loads of warm water.
