Since winter started all we have been seeing is the seventies look coming back with a bang. this was a timeless decade of nothing but colourful bright fashion. Tight fitting wide leg trousers, bellbottoms , a-line skirts, jumpsuits, knit wear and the knee length boots.
This look is mostly worn with big chunky coats, my absolute fav.
First runner up is on our list, the A-line skirt. this skirt has comes in two hem lines, a thin hemline or a high hemline. Depending on your body shape, if you’re short and voluptuous its best you wear the thin hem line, this will suit your body preferably with tucked lace or silk shirt.
Second runner up, the bellbottom. every year, every season this trousers have managed to stay timeless season after season. These trousers are perfect for tall women, the bellbottom gives more definition to the slim figured body. If you’ure short preferably get the ankle length bellbottoms this will give your body the illusion of being slightly tall and slim. The bellbottoms hug the waist giving your bum a natural bum lift these trousers a best worn with vests, tailor fitted shirts and pullovers.
Third runner up, the wide leg trousers, its elegant and classy. These trousers are good for lengthening, they give the illusion of making you look like you have these beautiful long legs and a small waist. These are perfect for any occasion especially with a colourful detailed buckle belt to complete this elegant look, toping it of with painted heels.
Fourth runner up is the knit wear, my all time fav. I can wear knit wear from January till December, i think i’m gonna cry i love knit wear. I’m obsessed with knit, maybe cause i was raised by my grandmother and she clothed us in nothing but stuff she knitted for us growing up as kids.
I love pairing my knit wear with pencil skirt, or tailored fitted pants, this doesn’t clutter the your outfit, its easy on the eye, its classy, elegant, sexy and it makes an amazing silhouette, outlining every detail in body shape. Make sure to tuck in the front of the knit wear only and leave the rest hanging loose with a tailored fitted trouser. With a pencil skirt make sure the knit wear sits on the waist to outline your beautifully shaped waistline. These outfits rock with a pair of high heels in any colour preferably peep toe pumps.
Last, but no least the jumpsuit. This is one delicate outfit that needs you to pay close attention to the detail, the fabric and length. For petite people this look is fierce, its hot and elegant. If you have hips and an ass this look tends to make you feel uncomfortable. the suit tends to pull up as you walk and down and it shifts in between your thighs making it ride up your behind. Therefore in this instance rather get boyish jumpsuits these are loose and flowy, they have elastic on the waistline and on the ankles, they help sculpt your body shape.
All these looks were always paired with big chunky fitting coats in the 70’s and with matching knee length boots, short heel with a pointed toe. this look is still present to this day, have fun this winter in beautiful clothes.
With winter here, the scarf game has since been approaching big time, accommodating with it different patterns, shapes, colours, prints, designs and how to rock it with every outfit.
The love i have for scarves is out of one’s mind, i have an entire collection from knitted, infinity and shawls or wraps. They bring aliveness to an outfit and create a reconizible fashionable look. Its become part of ones everyday wardrobe.
I love how it transforms an entire outfit to being trendsetting. The great part about rocking these scarves is that you make it work for you, whether its playful or suggests elegance it done with your signature at the end of the day. You get to be the trendsetter custodian to leading others to find inspiration in your look.
The Classic scarf
The Classic scarf, its simple and can be worn with any wardrobe look. Make us of neutral colour scarves they help give your look a zing, so that the focal point is easily recognised and not sunk in with clashing colours.

The Infinity Scarf, makes bold statements, its simple, clean and playful. This scarf makes it easy to pair it to any day time wear. It can be worn several ways, being wrapped around once or twice for volume purposes, in most cases wrapping it twice gives it an exceptional quality look. In stead of a long chunky neck piece nothing says “bold’ like this infinity scarf.
The Woven Scarf

The Woven Scarf, my kinda swag. I love the patterns it has, the thickness to its volume and that it totally matches every winter wardrobe look. Its mostly worn with blazers and leather jackets to break the textures from one another. Its wool, it suggests warmth and protection. The woven scarf usually makes a statement on its own with its unique thickness and patterns it has. In my books its not only a functional purpose only but its 100% must have accessory. Any fashionista kinda women should at-least have 5 of these in neutral colours.
The Summer scarf worn in Winter

The Summer Scarf, this scarf works well for chilly days in the winter. Its length suggests serval ways of creating a unique look which can be worn wrapped around once or just left to hang on the shoulders.
Summer scarves can be tricky when trying to pull them with a winter look, one can make sure that when wearing it, its accommodated by neutral colours, this will help not clutter your ensemble. Go crazy with this look it works well both day into night time. Sophistication all day to the extreme.
Winter scarves worn in summer

Winter scarves worn in summer , talk about contradiction. The purpose for this is not only because its pracitacal but its become a major accessory to completing ones look. Wearing this scarf is summer requires major con-fi-dence cause if you miss the mark you will look crazy wearing that heavy knitted wear in the blazing heat. I would suggest wearing it with very light garments so that its the only item of clothing that is heavy in the heat, just like (Jessica Alba)above,summery maxi dress with a summer denim gilet, the topping it of with a winter scarf as an accessory instead of a bold making statement neck piece.
