It might be a brand new season, but that doesn’t mean you have to fork out for a whole new wardrobe. With some clever layering and a little bit of forethought, creating a covetable wardrobe with luxe appeal has never been easier. Read on for five essential style tips that will transform the way you think about your winter ensembles.
ADD A BELT
Getting creative with an old belt is the best way to form new shapes with your clothing. Take oversized piece and layer them up, creating a focal point at the waist with a chunky belt. You can even opt for a belt over your winter coat and don’t restrict yourself to leather either; a printed scarf looks just as good.
MIX UP YOUR HEM LINES
Ditch convention in favour of dramatically contrasting hemlines. Team flared trousers with oversized dresses with puffer jackets- play on the proportions and experiment with lengths as a sure-fire way to add a touch of fashion week charm to your look.
TUCK IT IN
Ah the humble top tuck! How can something so simple be so powerful when it comes to styling? Fashion week was full of tucked in styles and we have to say, they cut a luxe silhouette. Try it with a crisp shirt or oversized sweater semi-hidden in straight leg jeans or an embroidered skirt.
CHOOSE OTK OVER TIGHTS
For those who hate wearing tights, the impending winter weather can seem like an absolute nightmare. Here to rescue you are a pair of over the knee boots, that add drama to a day look while keeping you legs snug. A style winner, for sure.
WEAR IT ON YOUR SHOULDERS
If you don’t like the thought of hiding all that smart layering under your maxi coat, wear it on your shoulders instead. Adding warm yet giving your outfit room to breathe, the shoulder robing technique is a fast track to elegant new season dressing.
