THE FOLK TRENDFashion
29 June 2016
Fancy channelling your inner bohemian this winter?
Here are a few ways to wear some of this season’s most on-trend pieces.
1. THE BLANKET COAT
Otherwise known as the poncho or cape coat.
The blanket coat is an incredibly versatile piece. Oversized and cosy, this is a great smart-casual alternative to a structured winter coat.
Go for a bold chunky stripe or Aztec pattern and make that the statement over a roll-neck turtleneck and wide-leg denim for a true folk vibe.
2. THE FAUX FUR VEST
Faux fur can divide an audience but it is a great way to add a sense of drama.
Not only will a faux fur vest stand the test of time but it will serve you well into late spring. A dark fur vest will help to soften bold prints.
For a casual outfit, dress the vest down with a slouchy tee, ankle grazers and white converse sneakers.
3. THE MAXI SKIRT
Seldom do we think of wearing a maxi skirt in winter, yet you should try it!
Maxi-skirts are a soft and feminine way to funk up a chunky knit sweater and look equally as good with a turtleneck and denim jacket.
Wear with suede over-the-knee boots for a more bohemian vibe.
4. THE HIGH NECK SWEATER
Oversized knit sweaters with high neck collars are here for winter.
Whether folded over or left undone, a high neck sweater is both comfortable and stylish. While an obvious pairing would be to wear with skinny jeans and ankle boots, a midi length dress looks great with a chunky knit sleeveless sweater worn on top.
