Apparently winter is coming...well at least winter styles are coming into store now. I know now that I have a shop I'm meant to submit to putting winter things out now. But I just can't. Who wants to try on a coat now? It feels like it is never going to get cold.
I'm always torn by the seasons. I love summer weather and everything it means for me - icecream at work, sleeping with the fan whirring in the background, long nights on the front veranda talking nonsense over frangelico on ice, crickets ( the sound of them, not the game - side note is a cricket a game if a flock of birds can easily fall asleep on the pitch in the middle of the game?) BUT here's my issue - I suit winter fashion better. Ok I have a tan to rival any ghost and black hair so I'll never be mistaken for a beach bunny. Then again winter means leather gloves, soft scarves, layering deluxe fabrics like wool and silk....
So here are my tips for winter styling: long full maxi skirts in suede, heavy silks, leather if you are game; tear drop shaped dresses where the front is shorter than the back; lots and lots of silk; soft wool blends; and tailored jackets in the softest fabrics.
So what I'm buying now to get me through until winter truly hits - anything that I can wear now, and layer as it gets cooler. Think maxis in prints now, covered up with cropped jackets in winter. Tunics with flat sandals now, with fitted tops, leggings and army boots in winter. Bright colours to go with all the black I'm usually in. Bling, lots of bling.
Must be ice-cream time.xx
