The great part about styling in the winter season are the many layers you can use. You don’t just have a dress and a light jacket – no, you have a t-shirt, then a long sleeve shirt, then a jumper, then a scarf, then a jacket and maybe a vest over a jacket. Not to mention the endless combinatory possibilities for accessorizing. During these rather colourless months, I love to use strong and vibrant shades such as red and gold, but for this shooting I chose shades of (innocent) grey. Usually I’m not a big fan, but I felt inspired and had fun mixing and matching the different grey and silver nuances along with darker accessories. Layer after layer of grey kept me warm and feeling like a million bucks. You can do the same, and if you want to add some drama to your outfit, choose a fuchsia scarf or maybe a dark orange hat. My easy-going scarf is by Joseph and a dream of softness.
Daily style advice:
Short fur jackets are easy to combine in a cool and easy way. Knitwear, especially cashmere comes in all kinds of thickness and texture, you can pile layer on layer for that cosy warm feeling! I like to advise focusing on accessories. With that you can transform any outfit into your own individual look. Just imagine the exact same styling, but one with a classic fedora hat by Maison Michel and the other with a funky fur cap – it completely transforms it!
Ugg and Moon boots are always comfy and warm, but sneakers with fur fillings are my choice of the season: they are warm, comfortable and easy to combine with jeans.
Of course a backpack adds that casual flair while being extremely handy. When I go to the playground or to the city with my son, there are a million things I need to bring, such as warm tea and toys. A backpack takes it all in and if it’s by Aigner, it’s an eye catcher as well. Win-win.
