winter clothing


Winter is the best time to look runway ready and sophisticated without much effort. Here’s how you can make the most of this opportunity and not jeopardise your sense of style till the next spring.

With the Diwali diyas flickered out, we hereupon commence for winters. This is when reality dawns upon us – our wardrobes shall alter altogether now. We are again faced with life’s most renowned dilemma- “What to wear and how to look stylish?” To up University of Delhi’s fashion quotient and to not look frumpy with a hundred layers, here are all the fashionista approved layering tricks to make you look cool during the cool season-

  1. Put on your Midi Coats-

Invest in a midi coat this winter to feel warm and toasted. Midi coats are not only for girls but are also available in varied designs for boys. Girls can vouch for a midi dress as well, if not a coat.

  1. Mix up your neutrals-

Blacks, taupes, and greys are the easiest and most convenient for the ‘mix and match’ game.  Any of their combinations would be just perfect, no matter how many layers you pile on. For boys, grey/black chinos can be worn this season. Girls can throw on a belt to emphasise their waistlines and not let their body shape get lost in one of those versatile gray/mauve overcoats.

  1. Stack up on one colour-

Piling up shades of the same colour is not only daring, but it is also never over-the-top. It looks casual and something a college student would wear.  In addition to this, if you go the hoodie route, nothing like it.

  1. Never forget your basics-

If you’re Getting late for an 8.30 a.m. lecture, remember that bold is better and an all-black outfit may not seem like an endless sea of fabric, if you just add on a plaid sweater of any other colour and put your style front and centre.  Knit sweaters will always remain the in-thing and long, oversized cashmere cardigans can set you for the winters just right.

  1. Boot, socks, and caps are the essentials-

Yes, winter is the time for some expensive shopping because you can catch a cold with poor quality, less costly hogwash. Spend a little more money to go for cashmere, ribbed crew socks in taupe, dark green and associated colours. As far as footwear is concerned, an ugg, an Emu, or a biker boot can work wonders, and you won’t regret it. For the best woollen caps, have beanies, striped pom -pom, slouchy minions’ winter hats and all other trooper trapper hats ready in your closet.

Therefore, this winter, do not forget to experiment and be creative. Be comfortable in your own skin and keep it simple always.

With the splash of recent rains in the winter calendar, the weather has seen a drop in the temperature. In this weather, we bring you an exclusive add ups to your winter dress up that can set your style quotient high.

  1. Good pair of boots can make or break an outfit. It’s totally wise to invest in a sturdy-basic pair because you will be using them daily. When it comes to fashion then remember its feet first!

  2. Even though a well fitted pair of jeans is perennial-round the year wardrobe staple, it becomes the most important clothing item during winters. A good pair should fit like a glove, accentuate all the right places and create a silhouette which complements the bulky coats and sweaters.

  4. The classic and timeless beauty of trench coats can’t be stressed upon enough. They are structural yet comfortable and on chilly winter days of Delhi, when even a though of dressing up feels like a burden then a loyal coat will come to your rescue. Buy one in black, grey, tan or any neutral color (you can also make a bold move and pick red or mustard) and set the foundation of your winter wardrobe right.

  5. Turtleneck tops are my favorite and most used clothing pieces. I simply coordinate this top with a pair of denims and casual shoes. The best thing is that they go with everything- jackets, cardigans, shawls and coats.

  6. Crewneck sweaters can be used both to dress and to dress down. You can pair the sweater with collared shirt, depending on the occasion either tuck in the shirt or simply let it protrude down.

  7. Faux leather jacket have the power to transform your outfit from dab to fab. You don’t have to ride a motorcycle tto rock a leather jacket. it goes with plaid shirts, with floral dresses, grunge jeans and what not. It can instantly add a touch of edge. P.S- Don’t buy genuine leather, faux leather feels just as warm and looks just as good. It’s easy to maintain and is cheaper.
