Winter is slowly approaching and colder days are on their way, BUT your winter fashion styles and choices can still be fun and fresh. So, stand out by staying abreast of the trends and ease yourself into winter with these latest designs writes Roxyk.
Of all the jackets and coats available, the trench coat is back this season. It has become quite popular this time round. To achieve a classic look, pair the coat with a soft mohair jersey and jeans; or a collared shirt if you are working. The belt can be worn in the more conventional way, tied around the waist in a knot or tied at the back to give you a more silhouetted figure. For a much more feminine look, opt for coats that are double-breasted and with pleats at the back. It creates an instant hourglass figure when worn.
The perfect puffer jacket is making its mark again this season. From sleek padded ones to satin and fur trimmed, the puffer jacket is trending this season – available in short styles for a casual look and extra length for a more sophisticated look. A classic knit and leather-look trouser is all you need to update this look.
