I love feathers! And they seem to be everywhere in the fashion world the past few years. They aren’t just confined to prints on fabric, they have been forming part of jewellery and hair extensions too! So no, feathers aren’t just part of costumes on Strictly Come Dancing, in my opinion, they are totally mainstream. And they are the perfect print for winter this season.
Yes I know that its a rather bold print but it makes such a statement with little effort. Why not challenge yourself to add a feather inspired piece into your wardrobe this season, be it a piece of jewellery or an item of clothing. You’ll be surprised at how versatile this design is.
My look today incorporates a feather print dress, sheer stockings and ankle boots. And in all honesty, I wish I could sleep in this ensemble.

So in keeping with my “Being Winter Savvy” series of blog posts, I cannot ignore the amazing headwear trends for Fall/Winter 2015. Hats in my opinion give ones look a whole new vibe. Drab to fab in seconds. The latest hat trends seem to be everywhere so this blog post is focusing on my favourite styles and how to style them.
Beanies are one of my favourites.
They remind me of my childhood winters and are really easy to wear. This season sees numerous retro updates, girly pom poms (my favourite of course) and grunge styles on the market. I love pairing beanies with skinny jeans and sneakers. Downtown L.A. vibes right here in the heart of Johannesburg.
From wide-brim hats to floppy felt hats, the options are pretty much endless when it comes to structured hats.
A structured hat can easily be paired with heels, boots or sneakers and it adds a feminine touch to any outfit. For a statement look, why not match your hat to your lip colour and keep the rest of the ensemble easy and simple (my winter favourite is deep red shades). I am obsessed with ankle boots and floppy felt hats. Look out for a full outfit post incorporating my faves!
Aaaaah and then there is the beret (oh how French).
I remember berets being so on point whilst I was growing up and then they somehow disappeared. But they are definitely making a comeback this season. Paired either with skirts or trousers (well paired with basically any bottom), berets give ones look a modern fresh feel. My ultimate chic beret styling? Skirt with a knitted tunic and a leather jacket!
And just like that, Winter is about to get the fab factor!!
