Hot Winter Colours

Nudes - This Winter elegant simplicity is in vogue.  The quickest way to obtain this look is to team tones of cream, caramel, toffee and tobacco together. These colours will see you through the season.
Purples and plums - also look great combined with shades of grey.

Greens - Military colours return this winter with khaki and olive green dominating.

Grey is the new black
- Choose from dark charcoal grey, gun-metal grey, slate and cloud.

Red – If you have the personality-go for bright scarlet or deep burgundy-team it up with charcoal, whether it be in a splash of nail polish or a dash of lipstick.

Remember, that not all colours or styles suit everyone, so ensure that you wear what is appropriate for your body shape.

And for the men

This season we see a return to the classics with perfectly tailored trench coats, suits with checked patterns or cashmere sweaters.

Three-piece suits:

The waistcoat is back as a statement piece.  It's new found popularity means the return of the three piece suit. We have moved away from the ‘skinny boy’ suit-the new cut is very masculine-broad shoulders, a slim waist, slim trousers.

Renewed military style, new cuts of suits and velvet fabrics dominate men’s fashion this season.

This Winter's colour for men is camel. Introduce some spicy colours eg burnt orange, or shades of purples to brighten up a gloomy Winter outfit.

Another big trend this Winter is extreme layering-combining sweaters, coats, blazers and jackets to create a bulky masculine look. Play with different textures, lengths and fabrics.

Must have items for every fashion forward guy:

•A winter coat or trench that can be added to any outfits to finish off that stylish image.
•A stylish pair of leather patent shoes.

Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Can you believe it's time to bring out our Winter woolies again? 
A new season is the best time to update your look.
With so much fashion in the shops and magazines - it can get very confusing. 

My top tip for this Winter is less TRENDY items, buy more STATEMENT pieces. Invest in clothes that are wearable time and again. To find out what key pieces you should opt for read on.

Winter Wardrobe Essentials

50’s Ladylike Charm: Curvy girls are back in fashion -YAY!
Figure hugging dresses and skirts finished off with a belt. Choose from pencil skirts to A-lined full skirts/ shirt dresses. Jackets are cropped and fitted or long and loose. Skirts & dresses are worn just below the knee.

Rules for wearing Full Skirts:
1: Stick to neutrals.
2: Keep it slim and fitted on top – add a poloneck or a fitted blouse.
3: The low-cut ankle boot is perfect to modernise a full skirt.

The LEOPARD Print: Wild leopard spots are seen in shoes, scarves, handbags. Ease animal prints into the office wardrobe with neutral separates and a pop of colour eg RED.

'70s Sophistication
• High waisted wide-leg pants.They make your legs look super slim and chic!
• Cigarette Pants - narrow cut ending at the ankle.
• Pussy bow-blouses, with billowing sleeves in silk, satin or velvet. 
• Statement collars on coats and jackets are the rage.
• Polonecks-a great basic item each winter-update it in the right colours-wear under a shift dress. 

Layering: Select waistcoats, cardigans, gilets, blouses and layer creative. The secret is not to make use of fabrics that are too bulky. Buy a COATIGAN- a knee length combination of a cardigan and a coat.

FABULOUS FASHION BOOTS: It’s short boots and chunky heels all the way this Winter. 
The Must-Have pair for this season-a neutral colour, high-heeled, lace-up shoe boot. Stay away from the thigh high “Pretty Woman” boots, sheepskin trims, studs and biker straps.
