"Trench coats have become increasingly popular."
Winter fashion wardrobe necessities have rapidly become a way of self-expression, cultural representation. And, simply, a way of life!
With a rise in the likes of Instagram and Snapchat, we are given a quick and direct access to lookbooks. Including, clothing stores and trends, from celebrities and designers themselves.
But, to new-be fashionistas, and those of you wanting to set trends.
Or, to maybe catch a certain someone’s eye, DESIblitz presents some essential pieces you should always have in your closet.
A Pair of Boots
Boots are an absolute essential in the colder months.
The latest trend is thigh high or over-the-knee boots. Wear a pair with a dress and some tights for a casual and a flirty look. Or, throw some over a pair of ripped skinny jeans for a quirky, yet, sassy swag.
Tip: DESIblitz recommends to choose the fabric of your boots carefully. Suede may not always be a good idea for the cold, wet and snowy conditions. Leather may be a more practical winter choice.
To maximise versatility, stock up your winter wardrobe necessities, with the latest pair of boots.
