Fashion Forward with Molly: Hot Winter Trends

The winter season is slowly creeping upon us and now is the right time to complete your winter look. Find out this season’s hottest trends in this week’s edition of Fashion Forward with Molly…

BACK TO SCHOOL WITH SHOES AND SOCKS:

Shoes worn with socks was hot for spring but this trend is sticking around for winter, and why not when it allows for both comfort and warmth. Surprisingly, MIU MIU happened to ignite the shoes and socks trend and it was from here that designers such as Marc Jacobs  and Rodarte decided to work the school girl trend themselves.

 

CLOGS COME BACK:

Clogs were seen on many a runway for spring 2010 but they are still hot for winter.  You’ll find them in new forms and fun patterns.  I for one am not a fan of this trend but have seen how designers such as Miuccia Prada have interpreted it and I am slowly but surely warming up to it.

 

CAMEL IS THE NEW BLACK:

Camel is everywhere this season and will go strong until summer. If you are drawn to this colour, the camel trench is a particular must have item for your wardrobe this season. For Durbanites, this look is great, as the coat is light weight therefore offering all the warmth we need for our not – so – cold winter and for those of you who have to battle the cold this season, not to worry as the slouch / oversized silhouette of the coat enables for easy layering underneath!

 

COMBAT BOOTS – NOT JUST FOR THE ARMY ANYMORE:

I must admit, I was a little weary of this trend at first but now I am in love with it! The combat boot is ideal for slippery / cold weather and can look great with leggings or skinny’s this winter… The best part is.. they are completely versatile so keep them around for summer as they can look hot with a cute floral dress or even shorts!

   

OVERSIZED KNITS STICKING AROUND:

Slouchy oversized knits are still hot for winter. You will see large scoop necks, sleeveless cardi’s, ties at the waist and military style shoulder tabs along with buttons down the back or on sleeves.  Oversized knits not only look great but also allow for comfort and warmth. This trend looks best worn with skinny jeans / leggings / stockings.

 

O.T.K BOOTS:

The daring over the knee boot  can be worn in so many different ways but this trend is worn best, elegantly – go for a classic slim fitting pair in suede with a round toe.
