When it’s dark and cold, I’m usually not in the mood to put on something chic, trendy or fun. Besides, it can be a bit difficult to think out-of-the-box with winter wear. So I’ve put together this this mini-guide to help you wear your timeless winter essentials with a twist. So your winter days don’t need to be dull. 🙂
The basic: Sweater/ jumper
The classic sweater is comfy, soft and available in a range of colours.

Wear it different: Sweaters can be fun. If you like colours, opt for jumpers in pop colours or with patterns.

The basic: Cardigan
The buttoned V-neck and round-neck cardigan is a winter essential for both men and women. Dark colours are especially great for the incredibly short days and long nights.

Wear it different: The “unbuttoned” cardigan (aka “cover-up”) is a chic way to show off your top below or keep it casual. Think kimono-style cardigans with no buttons, cardigans with in-built belts and loosely worn cover-ups.

The basic: Winter dress
Long sleeves, muted colours, simple patterns and a hint of detailing—that’s a winter dress.

Wear it different: Try a knitted or crocheted dress with feminine frills like lace or other sheer fabric.
