Winter Fashion Must Haves
#1 Stoles, Mufflers and Scarves
Stoles, scarfs and mufflers are fantastically versatile, come in a range of colours and can be knotted and draped in different ways. No wonder they contribute so much to winter fashion. Check out how to wear a stole, different styles of wearing scarf and how to wear muffler this winter, with these 4 styles.
Style 1 - The one-loop look:
This style works for both men and women and is simple and chic. Start by hanging your stole from your neck with one end longer than the other. Take the longer end and loop it around your neck one. Now adjust the ends to make them even.
Style 2 - The European loop:
A classic look – favoured by many a gentleman, this look is achieved by folding the scarf in half. Create a loop around one of your hands and hold the other two ends in your other hand. Wrap the scarf around your neck, pulling the loose ends through the loop. Adjust the scarf to make it comfortable.
Style 3 - The Infinity loop:
Stylish and practical, the infinity loop might look difficult but it’s pretty simple to tie. Drape your scarf around your neck, with equal lengths on both sides. Tie the ends into a knot. Double the knot so that scarf doesn’t come loose. Twist the loop so it resembles an eight and drape the bottom of the 8th over your head. And it’s done!
Style 4 - The Quick Toss:
Oh so simple, and a great way to exhibit the patterns and colours of your muffler, the quick toss involves simply draping the muffler from your neck with one end longer than the other. Take the longer end and toss it over your shoulder and let is hang down your back.
#2 Jackets and Coats
Who doesn’t love snuggling into a warm jacket when there is a chilly breeze about? Luckily, jackets now come in a variety of colours, material and styles that are as stylish as they are warm. Check out the 3 types of jackets you need this winter.
Style 1 - The Trench Coat:
This long and stylish coat is a classic – not only does it keep you warm, it also accentuates your outfit. You can wear it to both formal and casual events. Jazz it up with bright colours and beautiful patterns.
Style 2 - The Puffer Jacket:
Warm and wonderful are two adjectives that come to mind when you think of this jacket. Soft, comfy and entirely padded, you can easily add it to your daily wear. Colours and patterns are aplenty with this jacket, but its structure means you will look on the bulky side when you wear it. Choose one with a tailored waist or wear a nice belt to give it shape.
Style 3 - The Cape Coat:
If you have a lot of formal events coming up in the winter, and style is your priority, try the Cape Coat. Perfectly paired with a gown or a pantsuit on a chilly day, or even with skinny jeans and boots, this coat keeps you warm and looking good!
Now that you’ve seen some of the winter must-haves, dig out your wallet and start shopping for Christmas! Most importantly, stay stylish and stay warm!
