New season – new wardrobe checklist. As Winter is already round the corner it’s time to get our closets ready for the big chill, right? Here’s a roundup of the biggest Trends for Winter 2017/18 and all the cold-weather basics that are worth the investment:
COATS & JACKETS
A PUFFER JACKET // Let’s start with the warmest option out there. A puffer jacket (or coat) is not only super warm, but also the trendiest outerwear of the season. Choose a shiny version, something colourful or a black classic.
A TEDDY COAT // I’m already familiar with that fuzzy feeling and wouldn’t trade my Teddy Coat for anything else! Such a perfect off-duty jacket, that goes perfectly with leather pants or denim. Invest now!
SHEARLING JACKET // Oh, I’m still dreaming of the Velocite jacket, but I found amazing alternatives at Diesel Black Gold and H&M. So cool, so warm!
FANCY COAT // May it be leopard, colour-blocked or a checked version – we all need 1 Fancy Coat in our winter wardrobe, to brighten up the foggy winter days.
MAXI COAT // For maximum comfort we need maximum coverage. Means: wrap yourself in a Maxi Coat that shields you from the ice-cold winds. Perfect for layering with chunky knits.
KNITWEAR & ACCESSORIES
CHUNKY KNITS // This season is all about chunky cable knits and XL sweaters. You can never have too many!
A SOPHISTICATED TURTLENECK // A classic piece for every occasion. Layer it with a Maxi dress or just pair it with a nice blazer. Absolute winter must-have.
XL SCARVES // What would Winter be without a giant Cashmere Scarf?? This is the ultimate christmas present that will make you happy (and warm) for years and years to come. Brave fashionistas opt for a Statement Scarf this season…
A HOODIE // I must admit – I looove Hoodies! Nothing more comfy that Netflix & Chill in an oversized Hoodie. Highly recommend for lazy weekends!
BEANIES & BERETS // Blame it on Dior, but I think it’s time to invest in a black leather beret. Or maybe a felt version. That would be a nice addition to the classic wool beanie, that everyone should have in their closet.
STATEMENT EARS & LEATHER GLOVES // There’s always time for some earbling, but especially when you’re drowning in wooly layers, a touch of glitz to your ears can make the outfit. Also invest in a pair of leather gloves – keeps your hands warm and sophisticated.
TEXTURES & TRENDS
VELVET // If you haven’t got something velvet yet, now is the time! May it be a velvet blazer, a bag or even a pair of ankle boots: this is THE Trend Fabric of the season and I can highly recommend it!
CORDUROY // Another Fall/Winter favorite. A corduroy Blazer can be a great alternative to your ordinary winter wardrobe staples. Chic yet fashion-forward…
RED // We’ve already seen it coming: Red is the colour of the season. Invest in a knitted sweater, a maxi coat or a chic dress for 100 Trendpoints.
VINYL & SHINY LEATHERS // Let it shine and grab a vinyl jacket, a cool mini skirt or some patent leather boots. Pair it with your favorite knits for the ultimate Winter combo.
METALLICS // Heavy Metal for Christmas? Yes, please! Choose a metallic maxi dress, a sequin blouse or even a shimmery tuxedo as ultimate party starter. Festive dressing never looked so cool!
SHOES SHOES SHOES
COMBAT BOOTS // Warm and solid shoes are quintessential during Winter. Luckily combat boots are trending right now, keeping our feet dry and warm. Pair it with more feminine details like knitted dresses or tailored pants to balance out the tough appearance.
CHIC OVERKNEES // Who doesn’t love a good pair of Overknees? Especially when layered with asymmetric skirts/dresses and wooly maxi coats. Parfait!
SLOUCHY BOOTS // These trending shoes are a great alternative to Overknees. Thanks to the loose fit and slouchy look they are much cooler than normal knee-high boots.
CHUNKY SNEAKERS // The chunkier – the better. Acne Studios and Balenciaga already showed us how cool an ugly sneaker could be. Definitely on my wishlist!
SIMPLE ANKLE LEATHER BOOTS // An absolute must-have in every winter wardrobe. Nothing is more versatile and timeless than a classic ankle boot. Looks nice with leather pants, boyfriend denim or midi skirts. They go with anything actually…
SOCK BOOTS // Still a favorite of mine: Sock boots. The cooler sister of the classic ankle boot is perfect for a girl’s night out. Or some serious lunch dates…
