FASHIONJAZZ WINTER ESSENTIALS

I am the guest blogger for CAPE GATE blog this month, thought I would share my article with you guys 🙂 Hope everyone is having a good week so far too…

Hi there, my name is Jasna and I am the owner and editor of the FBL blog Fashionjazz. I am super stoked that Cape Gate asked me to be a guest blogger for the month of July, I shop there all the time because I ALWAYS find what I am looking for which is a bonus when I need to pop in to get something during my errands, meetings or before a big event.

 

So I decided to share some of my winter essentials that I love wearing every winter as well as some on trend items that I am obsessed with right now.

 

I must admit I love winter, from hot chocolate to cuddling by the fire you name it but mostly because I love layering. These items below are perfect for that trend as well as transitional wear which is my go to between seasons.

 

OLIVE GREEN/KHAKI

This colour trend has been around for ages and I love it because it changes your whole outfit. This colour looks especially good with tan, grey, white, denim and black- my favourite colours..

 FAUX FUR

I have been a huge fan of faux fur for years, it goes with any outfit especially the vests and scarves that you can layer over cardigans, leather jackets and tees.

LAYERS

Like I said before I love layering, I am always experimenting by wearing 3 or 4 layers at once like a tee, blazer ,jacket and a faux fur vest over it to long coats over pants with scarves, layering is the chicest way to say warm in winter.

BOOTS

Over the knee boots have been around for a while too, but I really see this trend carrying on for quite a few seasons, they are a must have in my closet. Anyone can wear them especially if they are suede and you keep the rest of your outfit simple and they keep you warm and look so chic with any item. Mid calf boots are especially trendy this year, they flatter everyone and wearing them in a tan or grey colour changes the look completely.

 SNEAKERS

What can I say, everyone loves sneakers ( even if you just wear them to gym).  Its clear they will be around forever, they are so comfortable and if you style them with more smarter items it can take you from casual to super chic in just one look.

    I would go with the tshirts/sweaters that have a fun quote – they can easily add interest to any boring look 🙂
    Thank you for your comments in my blog.
