Winter is an excellent excuse for layering up, but remember to be smart and chic about it. You have to look for the right balance between cozy and stylish. Here’s how to stay toasty warm yet trendy.

For many of us winter is a bane. The constant search for some feeling in your numb hands is not the best way to spend your days, but then some thrive on the cold. Whichever end of the spectrum you swing, it is time to update your winter wardrobe. This is the time to utilise the edgy, not-so-cheap, leather jacket in your closet.
Your favourite winter trend should go something like this; oversized coat with sloped shoulders and elongated sleeves. Anti-fit jacket carried off with a borrowed-from-the-boys attitude is a relaxed yet bold choice modern women can make. This winter, is all about ‘go big or go home’. Trenches, oversized jackets, military coats and big puffer coats are this season’s must-wear. Don’t forget to add over-the-knee boots and oversized scarves to the list.

Understand the basics
Winter is all about smart layering. If you are going for atypical men’s look (boyish yet charming), wear a suit or a casual shirt. Overcoats also look good with straight fit jeans. Layering is also a play on textures. International stylists suggest wearing a classic white shirt with a black sweater paired with a vibrant jacket. Try a trench coat over boyfriend jeans or go for long layers – a long shirt with a long jacket.
You’d be surprised how much fun you could have layering. It is necessary to balance the whole look. To achieve that, pick an oversized jacket with fitted inner wear for a composed look. Short leather jackets work well with evening wear and can be worn below a solid minimal coat.

Take the traditional route
One of the big winter wardrobe conundrums is how to wear winter-wear over Eastern-wear and not be called an ‘aunty’, especially at formal events, because a cardigan over a sari may be functional but not fashionable. The best way out is to opt for a design that has Asian influence. Don’t pair your outfit with jackets having a very large or wide collar; a high-collar would work best. Pair your traditional ensemble with long embroidered jackets. Faux fur coats in colours like rust and wine can be paired with formal attires. Even brides can go for vibrant colours in winters to elevate their wedding outfits. What also works is a cropped velvet blazer or bomber jacket with a sari.
