Winter Layering 101

Despite the bitter cold and rain, winter need not be a time to feel blue. It’s as a chance to experiment and get creative with different textures, colours and stylish accessories. One key element to winter dressing is mixing things up with layers. Here are tips for layering this winter:

Keep the base simple

By keeping your base colour simple, additional layers and colours are more easily thrown into the mix. Hues such as cream, white or light grey are best. To avoid enlarging your silhouette, base layers should also be thinner than additional layers.


Vests allow you to add texture to your look without overbearing the rest of your ensemble. They are the perfect way to add that extra touch of style and warmth; think fur, shaggy, denim or biker leather.

Experiment with accessories

Accessories are an easy way to show off your personality and an affordable way to trial trends without having to invest in a whole new wardrobe. Stylish accessories such as leather gloves, a floppy winter hat and a neck-warming scarf are fantastic options this season.

Get bold

Investing in a statement skirt, shirt or dress this winter is a great way to stand out from the sea of grey. Fierce animal prints, monochrome and florals are a perfect addition if the other layers are kept simple.

Investment jacket

Investing in a simple warm jacket is the final way to ensure you stay warm and fashionable this winter. We recommend selecting in a piece that will last a couple of seasons. Keep the style traditional and the colour simple so your accessories can take the lead.

4 Most Wearable Fashion Trends for AW 2014

The seasons have changed and it’s about time to retire those denim cut-off shorts and tank tops for warmer options. But where to start? The following top four new season wardrobe staples will make certain your autumn style doesn’t get the cold shoulder.

Button down shirts

Take your pick from long, short, slick and oversized styles. Wear as a dress with cute tights and boots, button to the top and cinch in at the waist with a belt for geek chic, or channel Calvin Klein with a loose fitting style and boyish slacks.

Contrast never looked so good

Create a super cool and versatile wardrobe for the season by mixing your fashion. Team ladylike florals with monochrome stripes and block patterns, and partner edgy leather pieces with urban prints. For the wild at heart, try floral and animal prints for the ultimate attitude clash.

Quilted tops

We love the waffle tee for its casual cool. They’re easy to wear, loose fitting and suit all shapes and sizes. Our pick, crisp white. Dress it down with casual jeans, leather tracksuits and Cons, or tuck it into your fave high-waisted skirt.

Biker babe

They’re back again this season, so get your leather on with a super-chic black biker jacket. Ease into the cooler weather teaming it with shorts and skirts for spring, and when winter’s at full force, layer it with shirts, knits and scarves for an extra-warm and edgy look.
