WINTER FASHION FAVOURITES
Hello everyone and welcome to another fabulous week. It is still winter here in Johannesburg so the temperature is still a bit chilly, so I have been finding interesting ways to layer up and keep warm.
I am loving how quite in South Africa you can find beautiful, affordable, good quality clothing, mostly from local brands that you can look pretty stylish in. Today I am doing a round-up of my winter fashion favourites, with links where you can buy them or something similar. If you have some great fashion buys please share them with us in the comments below.
KEY WINTER FASHION FAVORITES
Grey Fashion Coat
While walking around the shops, I came across this coat. It has a crossover top, with buttons on both shoulders, I love the tail detail and the fabric and very soft on the skin, I love being surrounded by softness. Even though the last size available was a little bit big, I bought it anyway because when you fall in love you should honour that love.
Black and Gold Boots
In April it was our wedding anniversary and TheHusband did not disappoint. One of the really cool things I got for my anniversary was these really cool half boots from Aldo. Which are in Black and Gold – I love gold and rosegold at the moment, so I realise the man was actually listening to me after all.
BODYCON DRESS WITH A SNOOD
Truworths has a Basic line that I really love I have a bought a few items from there , it is like the Betty Basics label that I also like, it has simple dresses, leggings, t-shirts, tracksuits for casual wear and that you can layer with other pieces. One of the items available have at the moment is a navy dresses with infinity scarves that go with them. I really like them
I love the dress because it is soft and figure hugging can be dressed up with the right accessories, or I can dress it down. The fabric is great and I love that if washed properly I don’t have to iron it.
I also use the snood as a headscarf to tie up my hair for winter.
GOLD LOOK ELASTIC BELT
I love this gold look belt. The back is a thick black elastic material with the gold plate in front. I love how the gold plate part is flexible enough to fit my body very well. I bought this in one of those shops at small street in the Johannesburg city center about 3 or 4 years ago and it has been a staple in my wardrobe ever since. One of the best cheap buys ever.
This is also a Truworths purchase, when I saw this on the mannequins I had to have it, it was exactly the style I wanted. I am loving the layered effect of the dress with the cape, it is elegant, stylish and simple.
WINTER FASHION FAVOURITES: ACCESSORIES
In order to add that extra glitz to the outfits I have added some cool accessories, here are a few winter fashion favourites accessories that I have gotten.
STOCKINGS/ PANTIHOSE/ OPAQUE TIGHTS
I love stockings in winter, not only do they keep your feet warm but they also make you look chic and well put together especially for a work day. In winter I also wear opaque tights either in black or navy.
I love a selection of stockings, I normally buy them from a variety of shops, but my favourites are these once from Woolworths. Cool thing is you can shop online and have them deliver.
Blackcherry Satchel Bag in Salmon, click on Takealot to take a look
Recently I saw this Satchel Bag from Blackcherry on the Takealot website and it was love at first sight, it didn’t help that it was on sale at the time. I have been looking for a small bag to use as my everyday handbag and this fits me so perfectly. The colour is gorgeous and it has ample space for the necessities but not unnecessary stuff. I will be posting an organisation video soon, showing what I carry in that bag on a daily basis,
FAVOURITE WINTER JEWELLERY PIECES
WHITE AND ROSEGOLD NECKLACE
This layered white necklace is gorgeous, it looks good on a shirt or on the bodycon dress that I bought I love
THE DOUBLE BALL EARINGS
I love these again simple and elegant and they make you look dressed up with very little effort
So tell us what are you favourite winter fashion items and how are you wearing them. We would love to see them,
Until next time
