There are two trends I am currently in love with for winter; Neutrals and lace-up boots.
The color jungle green has been pulling my attention everywhere this season. It pairs well with patterns and other neutral palettes making it just as easy to wear as black. Dressing up for the weekend in the African winter can be tricky especially if you still want to look stylish.
For most people it is easy to fall into a jeans-jumper cycle and throw all caution to the wind on the style element of your outfits. Layering is a great alternative to boring weekend wear particularly because leaving the house on errands might end with a few social calls for which you must turn up appropriately dressed.
My secret to layering is creating a thin film around my body to preserve body heat with a pair of tights, bodysuit or tank top. From there I create the rest of my outfit adding a few extra layers on top because the chest area is more sensitive than the rest of the body.
I paired this amazing jungle green trench coat with a lovely beige pull neck sweater with beautiful gold specks and white pants turned up at the ankle. The look is simple and easy to put together by adding a few layers underneath. The lace up boots add a touch of edgy to your look and a tote bag with snakeskin detail is the perfect cocktail to get through the weekend activities.
Each of the pieces in this look can be restyled separately and worn over and over, my idea of a good bargain and will suit women of all shapes and sizes. Check out your nearest Deacons stores to shop my look and make sure you tag me on Instagram @Pisces_TwentyTwo so I can pick up some inspiration from you as well.
Quick update, I am writing this post from my bed, fighting pneumonia. While I am at a loss on how and where I could possibly have picked it up I can’t help but feel grateful for the opportunity I have to collaborate with Deacons East Africa.
