Deconstructing the Shirt
Whether it is the feisty gale that caresses and teases your hair, the first shower of snow that sways its way to the earth or the tantalizing aroma of hot mocha aiming high in its quintessential sinuous glory, winter is like that vintage wrinkled envelope that ushers in nostalgia. Winter wardrobe also ensures that you wear that sizzling metallic gown, sassy, smart layers and makes you tug out those dashing boots from your shoe closet without a second thought. Fashion is all about upgrading your wardrobe and staying on fleek with the latest trends. You have guessed it right, it’s time to look at the key pieces that must enter your winter wardrobe right away!
Bomber Jacket – Athleisure aesthetics have been so in this season that we have spotted fashion bloggers and celebrities walking the talk about being sporty chic! Hence, it’s natural that the uber cool bomber jacket was seen on Indian fashion bloggers Aakriti Rana Gill of Pretty Little Things and Santoshi ‘Styledge’ Shetty to high-street favourites and besties, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
Embroidery – From shift dresses to footwear, embroidery is making its presence felt like never before. From high-street brand Zara, to Alberta Ferretti’s resplendent floral motifs on flattering silhouettes and flats! Ethereal floral embroidery accentuates the silhouette and instantly draws attention to the outfit.
Duster coats – Layering is to winter what raincoats are to monsoon. The best feature of winter has to be the sea of layering options out there. This time it has to be duster coats which are long coats and without buttons. Fashion blogger Aashna Shroff of The Snob Journal fame and the newly married fashionista Aayushi ‘Styledrive’ Bangur have already rocked the trend this season. How to style it? Simple a furry emerald knit crop top layered with a blush toned duster coat spells travel ready!
Cashmere – Known for its classic appeal, Cashmere sweaters are all about striding the familiar territory, the comfort zone and basking in its feel-good-factor. Pair your Cashmere sweater with a tartan flare pleated skirt for that preppy-go-lucky look! Italian luxury brand Miu Miu has bestowed fashion lovers with a bouquet of Cashmere cardigans!
Pastels – Yes you read that right. Gone are the days when pastels were synonymous with the crazy summers. Take a cue from Gucci, Miu Miu, Sies Marjan’s line of couture splashed with hues of lilac, bubblegum and lemon. Fashion icon Rihanna showed us how to do pastels in winter with her powder-pink colour block ensemble of suit, pumps and fur stole.
Blanket wrap scarf – I really appreciate when fashion treads the convenient route and hence I am loving the blanket wrap scarf. Seen on Kendall Jenner to Olivia Palermo to Zoe Kravitz, this versatile piece is the mating between modishness and practicality!
Velvet– The USP of velvet lies in its opulence. This winter your wardrobe is incomplete without velvet. From Lifestylestores to Stalkbuylove to Topshop to Mary Katrantzou the plushness of velvet has all over casts its magic. Supermodel Cara Delevingne to Santoshi shetty to Aashna Shroff have been spotted in velvet fabric.
Beanies and Fedoras– A winter wardrobe remains incomplete without protection from the strong gusty winds. While scarves can double up as a head accessory if you happen to be in a mildly cold region, it is beanies and fedora that must feature in your wardrobe for some serious action against cold! Take a cue from Paloma Elsesser on how to ace the beanie look. I have always been a bobble beanie aficionado. What about you?
Sneaker Boots and Platform Boots– Winter insinuates that it’s time for boots, but this time it is all about racing it hard with the sneaker boots and platform boots. From fashion bloggers Riya Jain of Caught in a cuff fame to Santoshi Shetty to high-street brand Zara’s lust-worthy line of sneaker boots and platform boots, these shoe trends can work well with separates to coordinates to one-piece dresses.
Time to stack up your closet ladies. We hope that you upgrade your winter wardrobe this season and stay warm in style!
P.S. Ultra-feminine Coats with pearls and elaborate collars adorned with lace from Miu Miu remind us that timeless pieces will never go out of fashion!
