Aside from the cold, dark and gloomy days I like to think that there are several things to look forward to in winter. For example; lots of hot chocolate, Christmas time and my favourite thing to do: clothes layering! I especially love the heavy winter textiles that keep me warm. It's also fun to mix and match the different patterns available, which is why I designed and handmade this outfit. The dress is made from a bouclé fabric while the coat is made from a houndstooth coat wool. There are so many textiles to play around with this season, so here is a guide to the must have winter textiles:
Wearing the more traditional winter fabrics like wool creates great classic looks but it can get boring with time and in such dull weather you have to be able to still have fun with your dressing. The above mentioned fabrics have been hits on the runway and are widely available on the high street and online. The great thing is that you can get different items of clothing in these textiles. Hats, scarves, dresses, coats, everything! Nomatter what the item is, just make sure you have these in your wardrobe and you will be looking stylish this winter.
