So the beach weather isn’t quite over yet, but an autumnal nip in early mornings in the Cape has us looking towards our winter wardrobes in anticipation.
The winter staples are just arriving in designer fashion stores all over SA and here are a few essentials to look out for:
Soft and luxurious a beautifully crafted cashmere scarf will see you through chilly winter mornings and evenings in style.
Tailored blazer or chic and edgy with a distressed feel, the jacket is an essential piece this winter. IRO have some great options in red, black or white. Make sure you have a leather jacket ready to wear for a casual and edgy look too.
A silk shirt can uplevel your whole winter wardrobe in one move. Dress up some skinny jeans for a more formal day look or pair one with skirt and boots for work wear. Plain neutral colours in white, grey or taupe are versatile but you can also have fun with the statement making prints available this season – think leopard print or star spangles.
Keep warm with an elegant textured knit – perhaps a slim fit cardigan.
Skinny jeans are still de rigueur and come in an even wider choice of prints, colours and finishes. Check out JBrand’s latest range for some useful winter staples, or Current/Elliott for some fancy leopard prints in pastel.
Grab these and other upcoming trends in designer fashion from ShopLabel –some of them are still only available on pre-order, but you can make sure of the best pieces now, so your winter wardrobe is ahead of the game.
