Holla beautiful people,
It’s December and we all know what that means: Winter is here! So how’s everyone holding up in this freezing cold weather? Delhi is getting real cold and honestly I’m enjoying every bit of it. After the never-ending Summer months – it feels good to just wrap yourself in layers and knits, and enjoy the new lush season with boots and colours such as black, blues, purples and reds.
Frankly, I love everything about winter fashion be it heavy coats, leather, fur, dark colours or latest prints and patterns. To give you an idea, here are some of my favourite winter essentials that will definitely get you through the upcoming days in style.
1. Leather Skirt/Pants
Amp up your chunky sweater, printed sweatshirt or cashmere turtleneck by pairing it with a sleek, leather skirt/pants. I’m wearing mine with a flannel plaid shirt here.
For those days when you are brave enough to wear skirts, all you will need are some thick tights. Get them in classic colours like black, navy, grey, or the patterned ones like the one I’m wearing here.
Quick tip: these tights are also great for layering under your jeans for those extra chilly days.
As for your winter accessories, to keep you warm and toasty, you will need gloves, scarves, ear muffs and beanies. Wool scarves are my favourites and are trending this season. You can take your pick and go for any pattern, print or colour as per your personal choice. Although knit gloves are considered to be warmer, but for a more sophisticated look, you can always try some leather ones.
4. A Perfect Overcoat
There are several kinds of winter jackets available but you can never go wrong with that perfect fit overcoat. Not only does it help you in staying warm, it also makes you look stylish and elegant.
Boots are a must-have when it comes to winter season. They not only keep your legs warm but also add that finishing touch to your entire outfit.
As you can see in the pictures, I’ve tried to keep both the looks as different as possible including the makeup. Have a closer look:
While the former look is more edgy with smokey eyes and dark coloured lips, the latter one is a softer look with subtle eye makeup and pretty pink lips.
