As the early morning – slightly chilly – breeze indicates, it’s finally time to layer up in our swankiest fur coats and leather boots. Well, not really. As much as we would like to bundle up in a different jacket every single day, winter in our country is a fleeting affair which leaves us with a closet full of fashion pieces that never see the light of the day.
Instead of blowing your salaries on anything and everything to do with winter, invest in these seven pieces.

This bright, perky little jacket is your winter wardrobe staple this year. Yes, we know it is a far cry from the clichéd black hoodie. There is a reason for that. In addition to keeping you warm, your jacket needs to make a statement, whether through colour, fur or fluff – we’ll let you decide.

Head over to 9Lines for some seriously cool options that will take your outfit from fluffy to fabulous in no time.
If you’re finding it hard to leave the house without the multiple layers, then we suggest you invest in a coat. With multiple styling options, this outerwear will add oodles of style to any look.
Pick a classic grey hounds tooth coat or a vibrant alternative from Mango for your coat fix.
Before you start experimenting with outerwear this winter, we suggest you pause and purchase the one item of clothing that will complement all your winter pieces – a classic ribbed turtle neck. Wear it underneath a coat or on top of a crisp button down, you will find various ways to incorporate a turtle neck into your personal style.
Gone are days when sweaters were brown and boring. This year embroidered and embellished is the way to go. From heavily embroidered woolen Zara sweats to this warm, embellished beauty by Breakout, your sweater choices this month need to be something more than just fluff.
From the first day of fall to the last wind of winter, Leather is the fabric of choice for fashionistas across the globe. Depending on your personal style and choice, you can either sport it as a rock-chic jacket, street wear pants, or carry it as a handbag – Leather accents are sure to add that extra oomph to your look this winter.

Boots maybe the need of the hour, but our wish list includes breathable loafers that are part comfy and part chic. Not only are loafers a safe choice to pair with various outfits, they can also be worn all year round with ease. This monochrome beauty from Magnolia Design House will help you walk through winter in style.
Vibrant, woolen scarves wrapped around the neck are a staple and so are basic shawls. The good news is that the fashion world has combined the two and come up with what you can see above.
Our must-have item this season are the soft, stylish fur shawl shrugs at Breakout in an assortment of fall hues.
If the ‘fur look’ isn’t your cup of tea than this vibrant fuchsia shawl from Nishat Linen will add a much needed pop of colour to your wardrobe.
