How to dress this winter! – Winter fashion ideas with Vogue

Winter is coming. As per usual, Mothers around India are fetching the old suitcases stuffed with sweaters, shawls and jackets from their attics. The same button ups, the same mufflers bought once in Shimla and the polo necks that uncle from Switzerland gifted you that one time! Why and till when? Lets say no to the drab old winter fashion and embrace some new styles to keep warm and hot this winter! Come take a ride with me for all the clothes you can flaunt this season, prescribed especially by Vogue and some additional tips on how to dress this Winter, from yours truly!




2Adding the bold to the beautiful, lets embrace our wild side this winter, girls! Animal prints are back in fashion and in a big way! Fashion gurus worldwide, predict that this trend is here to take the season by storm, literally. Leopard prints, tiger prints, zebra  everything’s welcome and you can chose different materials to play with these spots! Wear them in jackets, coats, sweaters, skirts and even leggings for a big dose. For a more subtle look, you can wear a plain jacket and leggings and add a dash of animal in terms of a scarf, a bag or high heels!

6Leather is not just restricted to jackets anymore, they are a dress in themselves! rejoice ladies, for these dresses aren’t as difficult to wear as you thought they would be. They are comfortable and make a high fashion statement. Beige, brown, black, blue and grey are the safe colors you can opt for, and then there’s red, pink and purple for the more adventurous girls out there. Try leather capes, skirts, pants and one piece dresses with shoes, heels or even flats for an urban chic look!

13Capes are not only reserved for costume parties or the wizarding world anymore. Capes are flattering for all body types and a great way to stay warm and cosy this winter. Try small apes to cover your shoulders, mid lengthto cover your torso and even floor length to cover your entire body. What’s more is you can wear normal light clothes inside and pair them up with a cape to stay warm outdoors, and take them off inside and be comfortable in simpler clothing! Capes are wearable in solid colors, stripes, polka dots and geometric as well as floral prints. You can even wrap old shawls, scarves and dupattas in a cape style and accessorize with a belt for a more edgier night out!

19Silver, a color restricted only for special parties and night outs. What if Vogue told you it’s ok and fashionable to sport silver during the day time too? Well, yes! Enough blues, greys and browns, this winter its time to sparkle! Silver pant suits, dresses, loads of bling and sparkle is in trend! Try a short silver dress with knee high boots, or accessorize with a silver bomber jacket or go for silver mirror reflective sneakers! If you want to experiment with silver in small measures first, try a silver blingy bag, heels, headbands and belts. You can even style your normal office or college outfit with a silver choker, jacket or silver leggings with a simple white kurta.

25Vogue tells us that tweed is high trending this winter. Dump your plain wool sweaters for awarm tweed open jacket instead and you’re sure to stand out. Switch to a tweed skirt with stockings or leggings instead of jeans. Tweed is perfect for the light Indian winters as well as can be layered with more clothes underneath to keep you toasty for heavy winters up north. A pleated or straight fit tweed skirt with boots or shoes is a perfect outfit for shopping. Tweed on tweed is also a good outfit for office and college wear, pair a tweed jacket with a skirt or better a tweed suit for the complete package!

31Ruffles have ruled the market for quite some time now, and this season pleats are here to take over them. Pleated skirts are the most obvious choice and can be tried with a lot of different fabrics. Wide pleats, narrow pleats and simple crushed skirts are a big fashion statement this winter. One can also try pleated sleeves or collars for a more understated office look. Buy scarves in crushed material for rocking the style in a small way.

Great article! I live in a cold-weather climate and wool for winter is perfect. But traditional wool is too itchy. So now I use merino wool which is softer and warmer. I have a shirt and leggings from green-rose (UK) and I love them as first layer clothes.

Discover the brand coats for women that are stomping this season
Get brand coats for women this season and surprise everyone with new looks for both day and night. Choose a classic men’s cut cloth coat with lapels and wear it with jeans, a cherry cashmere sweater, and black mid-calf boots. If what you are looking for are women’s premium coats that allow you to go to the last, then go for coats as they are the hit of the season and they are also super elegant and combine with everything from a short velvet coat and monk strap shoes to your suede clothing and fringed ankle boots. We always bet on trench coats since they are one of those joker garments that combine with everything and never go out of style. Choose a navy blue and wear it with pinstripe straight pants, a turtleneck, and lace-up shoes. Choose a portfolio for an important meeting and you will be impeccable.
