Winter fashion is such a drag…or is it?
Most of us dread the cold because the layering makes us look even…fuller than usual. Also the image of a petite diva in a puffy winter coat is anything but sexy.
For the ladies leaving in a less cold environment where winter is more like…fall ( temperature wise) wearing the most popular 2015 winter trends – as Vogue presented them- seems to be the best idea.
However, for those of us fighting the cold, the snow or the dreadful foggy, windy and freezing winter days, the trends need to be …winged a little.
Capes , ponchos and wraps are extremely trendy this season. Graphic prints, structured finishes but also furry details on collars and hoods can be extremely eye-catching while prowling the streets. You can choose a large shawl for the same purpose but you can also consider a blanket style wrap. Whatever option you choose, be aware that it must be paired with a fitted outfit for the bottom part of your body. Think : leggings, fitted midi skirt, skinny jeans and statement boots.
Oversized knits and bulky crochet
This is the time for the old school warm and fuzzy feel only comfy knitted items can offer. The trends brought back the slouchy look for knitted pullovers, stunning yarn choices, bulky collars, big and structured finishes. The relaxed and flowing finish is very permissive figure wise so don’t hesitate to choose dropped shoulders, short-long hemlines and patch work style combination of yarn.
Whether you go for sporty short or you choose a long and spectacular parka, the duvet is the ideal choice for coat, this season. You can pick one with a furry underlining or ’60s inspired graphic details the coat must be the most versatile item in your winter wear. It is true that such a coat is mandatory to be chosen considering your body structure, your height and of course your figure.
Whether you choose an Aspen pullover, a signature far isle knit or a ‘60s color block mini skirt you should be aware that statement prints are one of the best winter 2015 trends. When it comes to classic sweaters anything of Norse inspiration is a big hit. Also the geometric prints on dresses, coats or ponchos bring back a strong and vibrant ‘60s air.
The Evening Wear
In case you have a glam event to attend to you can consider the best winter trends for 2015. Floor length velvet gowns can add to the diva glam you want to present to the world but if you dare to leave the audience breathless you can choose a fairy tale inspired gown.
Office wear key notes
For the ladies fond of the power suit this season offers the glam version of the tailored gentleman’s cut. The masculine touch add a fuller note to the jackets but the interesting fabric choices maintain the flowing finish of the tailored pants.
The classic coat we are so fond of wearing at the office must be oversized.The loose line will benefit winter layering and also make you look slimmer.
Trends are not always easy to pull through but consider these items for January-February 2015 to keep the cold away and be true to the diva in you.
