It's all in the details when it comes to winter weather dressing. From tropical to the zip trend, these are stylish details you need to look out for when you go shopping for your winter essentials. It’s time to freshen your style.

Making a powerful Statement

Fashion has always had a love affair with statement prints and graphics. It’s time to go logo-crazy and stock up on your favourite statement tracksuits. This is the only time we will never object to being a moving human billboard. They are a fun and effortless way of speaking your mind and flaunting your interests. When you wear a statement tracksuit your clothes do all the talking. From quirky slogans to hilarious quotes, a statement tracksuit is all about being young and stylish.

Tropical prints

There is no need to dress up looking like the winter weather. Let’s face it, prints are an iconic winter look and a printed colourful sweater is a definite must-have. Swap your tropical summer dress for some printed sweater. The trick to nailing this look is to keep the bottom and shoes neutral so that the sweater can do all the talking. The last thing we want is for you to look like an exotic flower garden or to blend in with the foliage.


All about the shapes

Want to add a little bit of edge to your ensembles? Asymmetrical sweater is perfect if you want to add something modern to your winter wardrobe. We will confess winter has never looked this good and it’s safe to say there is nothing basic about this.  Yours truly is pushing the T-shirt look forward with intricate asymmetrical back details-Making a powerful statement. 


Time to zip it up!!

An exposed zip is a key look this winter - and it can suit any age. You can’t live without zips. For the active wear enthusiast craving a more fashion-forward look, zip details are all the rage this season. The zip detail is taking over this season. Thrill your outfit with the stylish front zip detail. Zips add stylish kicks to an outfit .When it comes to zips we say the more visually interesting the better. 


Ripped but not torn
Fashion has always had a love affair with the ripped trend. We are head over heels in love with the ripped knee cuffed   joggers, they ideally make the whole outfit look more casual .This style has the power to transform any winter outfit from drab to fab! The trend looks cool with the right amount of rips and tears. Too much ripping from head to toe will give you a homeless person tag.

Knitwear never died.
If you want to wear a fun outfit even on the darkest winter days, knit cardigan, dress or hoodie are the perfect solution. Stylish knits are what dreams are made of .Knitwear trend is upon us and we are thinking cardigan or pullover that will see you through the inevitable seasonal cold. 


Freshen up your closet to add some winter fun to your look.
