Being fashionable is one thing and being fashion savvy during winters is a task in itself. The bright, shiny and lively hues of summer are replaced with neutral, mellow and pastel colours and designs this season. In an attempt to feel warm and cosy, its important that you don’t end up looking shabby! Piling on clothes in colder weather doesn’t have to make you look bulky either. In fact, its no big deal to look like a million bucks with the variety and range of winter wear available in the market today.

Since the winters in India is normally associated wit dry, morose, and colourless, it’s time for you to change that. Opt for the typical, yet “hot”, colours like black and red.  

There are sexy slim-fit trousers to the classic trench coats with big buckles to military style jackets you can strut around in without looking boring.

Prints are now everywhere if you go by the latest winter collection by international brands like Prada, Miu Miu etc. You can either wear them with monotone pieces to keep your outfit well-balanced, or pair them with other printed items to make a contrast.

Gothic has inspired many collections nowadays and it has become a really big theme in the fashion runways around the world. Get experimental, but don’t try this if you are not hundred per cent confident of carrying it. Laye-rs:

Fir-stly, you need to master the art of layering and be smart about it. Your final layer should be a cool, trendy, and comfortable coat. If you’re a little adventurous with your fashion statement, you could always go for a black coat with a fluffy collar.

Military Jackets:

Though the idea of military operations is not so appealing, it has for sure affected our vision of fashion. The military trend will be quite strong this time and every designer from Victoria Beckham to Salvatore Ferragamo has demonstrated their works inspired by military trend. So, don’t have second thoughts over buying that pair of military jacket you have been wanting to have in your winter wardrobe.


A giant scarf is also a good idea as it isn’t just great for keeping you warm, it’s also a terrific tool for balancing outfit proportions. You can try the ones with animal prints too to subtle pop of colour to casual outfits and monochrome coats.

Cardigans: The ones especially with the adorable prints are something you can incorporate with your clothes because the winters are not that unbearable in our city and its best to have a colourful cardigan that can bring some life to your otherwise plain looking outfit. There is now a huge selection of shrugs and boleros for both day and evening wear, with long and short sleeves. Wear fun spots on your dresses, skirts and sweaters to make your wardrobe exciting.

You can also use accessories to enhance your looks. A dark coloured muffler, a metallic wrist watch, a pair of an elegant earrings and a colourful bag will add a splash of glamour to your simple outfit.

Go for long earrings that dangle to mid-neck. The idea here is to draw attention to your face, rather than your body, simply because most of it is covered in multiple layers anyway!
