As the chilly wind of winter settles in, it brings to the end a year’s worth of fashion and style statements from all over the world. This year, before the New Year arrives you must make yourself acclimatized to the five fashion favorites which are most likely to rule winter fashion weeks and street wear designs. Stock up on the hit designs before the year-end countdowns to 2014 begins.
The graphic dress:
This dress is going to mark the return of the Bohemian and retro chic, with graphic prints from the Warhol era predominating the fashion scene. Colorful and funky, vintage and classic are all going to be seen on the same palate. Each dress is going to be a work of art, with abstract prints, geometric and paisley designs taking the centre stage of fashion. Tight fitted sheath dresses in mind boggling graphic designs are going to be the rage of the season. To make them look classy and edgy at the same time, you can pair them up with short cropped jackets and suede boots.
Little white dress:
What is winter without a touch of the pristine white, of snow and frozen rain? These elements of nature will be reflected in fashion wear too, with white and pastels dominating the runway. Stock up on your light shades and white dresses for a wintery feel and a cozy look. Go monochrome with white dresses that end at the knee and compliment them with white boots and jackets. This is a classic style that never goes out of fashion during the last few months of the year.
Following the popular Pantone color of the year, designers everywhere are going green and emerald. To add extra points to your winter statement, buy a good quality emerald scarf in chiffon or georgette for a glamorous look that will go perfectly with your dark coats and blazers. You can mix and match the accessories with it and go for green beads and gemstone jewelry and emerald stilettos.
Animal printed loafers:
We suggest comfortable footwear for this winter, like loafers and flats. Sneakers and loafers don’t always have to be uninspiring. You can play with the design and color of loafers. Animal printed loafers and colorful sneakers with graffiti art on them is a cool look to sport, if you think you can carry it off.
Wrap around skirts:
The sheer versatility of the wrap skirt makes it an absolute necessity on this list. Winters are incomplete without the wraparound skirt. These come in a variety of thick fabrics like wool, tweed, suede and cotton. The most amazing thing about these skirts is the fact that they easily fit any waist size and can also be worn inside-out, which has a different print in many cases. Pair these skirts with knee length boots and jacquard stockings for a feminine and ultra-chic look. Depending on the chill factor during the end of the season, you can go for short length or long wrap skirts.
