Winter Fashion: How to Beat the Cold In Style

Disclaimer: It rarely snows in Johannesburg but given this year’s temperatures, we might just see snow.

It is that time of the year again, when the shorts and sandals retreat into your closet and the scarves come out.  Here are some of the wardrobe staples to have in your closet this winter.

  1. Jeans and leggings

Jeans, especially skinny jeans are really versatile. Heading outdoors? Wear a pair of warm knobbly socks over black jeans and a finish with a pair of boots. Are the temperatures almost zero? Wear warm leggings under your jeans to keep you extra warm what with the insulation by trapping air between the two fabrics. #geek moment #physics in action

Borrow a leaf from Miranda Kerr who rocks jeans and thigh high boots below:


2.  Sweaters

These are great for keeping out the cold (duh), but most importantly, they come in a variety of sizes, colours, shapes and cuts as you can see below: You can dress these up or down, have them as the main focus of your outfit or even layer them underneath a warm coat.


3.  Coats

The coat is a key winter staple. It can streamline the silhouette, making you look longer and leaner, provided the cut is right for you. The coat works well on both girls and guys as below:

4.  Scarves

I left the best for last intentionally.  Dressing in the winter can be rather boring and monotonous, especially since most pen ople abandon all colour during this season. Scarves keep you warm and have the added benefit of spicing up your outfit. Look for thick scarves in all colours and patterns to be the perfect end to your winter wardrobe.


Finally, whenever you are in need of inspiration, look no further than Google. Pinterest will never fail you.
