Warmth this cold season is still fashionable

November is here and with it comes crisper weather, shorter days and a need for even cozier clothes.

November in my mind is the official beginning of the winter season, the time when it’s no longer just a ‘chill in the air’, but the introduction of real cold.

As the weather becomes colder many have a decision to make. Do you sacrifice fashion for warmth and heat or can you have it all?

If your fall and winter wardrobe is feeling lack luster, with nothing but the same old huge coats, boots and warm garments, then it is the right time to add some heat to your winter looks.

Are ready to give the season for chunky sweaters, blanket scarves, booties and all things cozy a touch of spice and heat, other than the need to be warm?

This fall and winter street styles are all about creativity and with that comes the joy of jumping right out of the box and mix and matching your fabrics for a new and unique look. Wool, plaid, silk and leather can work together to not only keep you warm, but are the basics for fun creative ideas.

When you’re feeling a little down in the dumps because of the colder temperature and darker days, go right ahead and add a huge splash of sunshine!

Yellow was the colour of the year for 2018 and it adds such a feeling of warmth, daring and joy to any outfit. Whether it’s a sweater, jacket, handbag or if you’re truly daring and bold enough, shoes, then go ahead and raise your spirits with the colour of the sun.

If you’re thinking yellow is too much for me, then why not reignite your summer feels and add some floral into the dark mix?

Transition your floral wide-leg pants to a fall look with the help of a chunky, bold sweater and black boots that peek out from the hem.

Not into floral pants?

Then mix it up with a floral chunky sweater, boots and dark jeans.

Letting your socks show is all the rage this cold weather season. A trend that is mostly seen with men, but can be a fun  and creative boost of fun and warmth for those women who want to still wear their kitten heeled slingbacks or fun mules. Pair these shoes with thin, chic socks in bright colours, or shimmery metallic or even argyle… the sky is the limit, so go nuts.

One of the best things about overalls is that they are a year round go-to! They are easy to wear and easy to dress up or down.  This fall and winter season, take them out of the closet and pair them with a fitted turtleneck tee, some loafer heels.

There are so many things you can mix and match to add some spice to your winter looks that will leave you both feeling fresh, fabulous and most importantly warm!

The big take away here is to not be afraid to of colours, patterns or to let your creativity shine through regardless of the season!

 

 

Rose tinted glasses for grey fall days

Seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses is not just a metaphor anymore, in fact this fashion accessory just became of one fall’s favorite trends this year.

On many a catwalk, designers have proudly featured a variety of different coloured lenses, including those that were blue, pink, red and even green, however this fall, the rose coloured glasses are the ones being chosen for those ‘grey days’.

From the  Ray Bans in collaboration with Nina Kraviz, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Carrera to name a few, it would seem that while the rose-tinted lenses are nothing new in the industry,  with the style being hugely popular in the 90s and the early 2k’s, it has nonetheless made a huge comeback this fall season.

With the style being favoured by fashion royalties such as the Hadid sisters and Selena Gomez, it’s hard not to see why many are investing into the trend and with each incarnation of the rose-tinted glasses, there are different events that will match your outfit perfectly.

The pink mirror lenses are perfect for festivals and outdoor parties and will add a dose of personality to your overall looks. They are more suited for summer, but also add a punch to the soft wool sweater look this fall.

Cat-eye shapes will also be the look favoured by the classy diva and the shape are often flattering on just about every face shape there is. Whether you team this with vintage clothing or a modern jeans and jacket combo, it will add that ‘diva’ look to your style.

If you’re not into the too pink life, then there are deeper tones like berry coloured lens that will still cast that pinkish filter over everything, but also give you an extra touch of style.

One of the hottest looks for this fall season, however is the rose-coloured Ray Bans, which were designed in collaboration with Siberian-born DJ and performer, Nina Kraviz.

 

It was Kraviz’s artistic point of view and unique form of self expression that lead to Ray-Ban, the legendary sunglasses brand to join forces with her to design the second collection in their ‘Feel Your Beat’ campaign, which aims to work with musicians to showcase their creativity and individuality.

For her collection, she has put a modern twist on the classic cat-eye frames by incorporating speckled blue and yellow frames with contrasting orange and green accents. Paying homage to her own work cycle, the sun glasses can easily make the transition from a day to night look with gradient colored lens.

“I always wanted to make my own sunglasses away from any fashion trends. Ray-Ban is a legendary, timeless brand that doesn’t make you anything more than you actually are but rather seamlessly integrates into your own presence,” she said.

“To my absolute delight they kindly brought back the classic cat-eye frame into production upon my request. From now on all freshly renewed cat -eye frames will be called “Nina” which is absolutely amazing and is a big honor.” She was quoted as saying in her interview with Paper Magazine.

Sunglass enthusiasts are still raving about the designs as they pair the collection with leather and animal prints this fall fashion season.
