Contrary to popular belief, florals are just as popular in winter as in summer. Don’t let the grey skies stop you from investing in a floral print coat. This oversized version is everything. The colour, the print and the length is an absolute win.
Enhle Mbali Maphumulo:
Embrace your inner diva with a faux fur coat. Nothing screams “confident queen” quite like walking into a room wearing one of these. Whether you go for neutrals or striking colours, it is guaranteed to get you all the attention.
An oversized puffer will never lose its lustre. This winter we’ve spotted an array of colours and textures from tweed to metallic. It carries a street style edge that is unmatched and will have you stepping out as the coolest kid on the block.
Really want to be the star of the show? Then look no further than neon. The highlighter hue has been making waves since late last year but it’s still managing to maintain its spot on the trends list. What better way to brighten up a gloomy day than to rock neon? Granted pulling off this blinding shade is not for the faint hearted but fashion is all about taking risks so why not? Note to beginners: keep the rest of your outfit very simple.
Anything animal print is a favourite at the moment. Whether you opt for snake, zebra or cow print, the chances of you being labelled a fashion fail are slim to none so go for it.
