As we welcome the winter chills, a coat updated with lush fur and texture is the ultimate statement. Whether it is for day or night, a beautiful coat carries us through the season effortlessly and enhances our look from casual to chic. Now I argue, is the best time to bring out that exaggerated drama and embrace a season of luxe.
As winter quickly approaches, I find that I am constantly in revision of my favourite summer and fall basics. One such piece is the military green cargo jacket in which everyone owns and loves. As I search for the perfect winter version of the anorak, I came upon this green wool coat which conveys that same casual coolness. Just as versatile and stylish, this coat with its' beautiful gold button detail and structure is perfect over denim or a classic dress. With its military resemblance, this coat offers a fresh approach to the traditional cargo jacket. So this winter and holiday season, put your traditional army jacket away and embrace this more refined and sophisticated design.
Evoking a sense of delicate cozy and warm elegance, the poncho is a chic piece that every girl should own. Versatile enough to be paired with anything, the poncho becomes a great outer garment for your everyday casual wear (1). However, if you also want a perfect complementing piece for the evening, the poncho can become that go-to attire and fulfill those occasions when you need to cross the line between casual and chic (2).
If you have been following me, you may have noticed that lately I have not been sporting any colour on my nails. Since the beginning of fall, I have decided to let my nails breathe because they have grown very weak due to frequent gel manicures. If your nails are like mine, I have discovered the Ciaté London Knight in Shining Armour Overnight Nail Mask and Marula Cuticle Oil to help you restore and rejuvenate your nails and cuticle this winter.
While some of you have heard of the term "boyfriend blazer" many times in fashion, don't let the name fool you! While it takes its' inspiration from his closet, it is designed solely for the ladies (1). Despite its name, it is a piece that embodies a strong female statement and offers a relaxed, polished and comfortable approach to smart dressing. Just like your first crush, you may admire the blazer from afar and think can I pull this look off? However, only through trial-and-error will you know if this trend is your true destiny or not.
