Top 5 Fall 2015 Trends to Transition into Winter

50 Shades of Grey

One of my favourite trends this season – grey on grey on grey. Nothing is more chic (and easy) than a simple outfit made out of none other than one of the best neutral colours of them all. Think about it – all the time you would spend thinking of how to colour coordinate your outfit can be spent on an extra 15 minute snooze session. At least to me, looking sleek and still catching enough shut-eye for energy to trudge through the freezing cold morning, is a win-win.

This trend is an easy one to transition with you to the winter season as all you really need to do is change out that grey t-shirt for a chunky sweater, layer a thermal underneath, and top it all off with a classic grey coat.

Tip: Wearing various textures or shades of grey is a great way to ensure your different pieces stand out from one another. Also, finish off your look with crisp white sneakers.

Over the Knee Boots

Another great trend to bring with you into the Winter season would be THESE BOOTS.

This is a simple one – not only are they stylish, but they keep your legs nice and warm. They have been all over the runway and streets this season, and for a good reason. Why wouldn’t anyone transition them over to Winter? (However, if it is snowing where you live, this would probably be the time to get lower heeled or flat ones. Maybe Steward Weitzman’s Lowland Boots?) 

Tip: You can still be sexy in Winter. Pair the boots with a skirt (or sweater dress) like you have been doing all Autumn, but this time, put on a longline coat that covers the knee and wool stockings. This should keep you warm enough, while still allowing you to look sexy as hell. 😉

The Turtleneck

The turtleneck is probably one of the most overdue trends of them all. I am overjoyed that they have finally made a comeback because they are probably the most practical tops to have for Winter. It acts as a sweater and a scarf all at once – could you really ask for anything more than warmth during the coldest season of them all? What’s better is that there is a turtleneck for everybody (unless you hate turtlenecks, which is unfortunate), because there are SO many different types of turtlenecks choose from. (I will not be going into detail about the various types of turtlenecks right now, because they need an entire post dedicated to them. So, stay tuned for that.)


These fine garments have shed it’s once nerdy stigma and transformed into a chic, Winter staple – a staple you need this season.

Faux Fur

A simple way to make your outfit ooze with elegance is incorporating faux fur into the mix. I know that the mere mention of fur causes some to sprint in the opposite direction, but I promise you – it is not that scary. There’s something for both the timid and the bold.

For the skeptics or newbies, try to subtly incorporate faux fur into your outfit by wearing a leather jacket with faux fur detailing – like removable shearling collars. You could also play around with faux fur vests, wraps, and scarfs to keep it minimal, while spicing up your outfit.

For all the bold fashionistas out there: go hard or go home. Experiment with all sorts of statement coats – long ones, short ones, colourful ones… The list goes on. The styles may vary, but one thing remains the same: these fashionable pieces will not only keep you looking amazing, but also add extra warmth to your outfit.

Last but not least, the most underrated trend of all – plaid. Plaids help inject a little bit of colour and quirkiness to most monotonous monochrome winter outfits. There are so many ways to incorporate plaid into your winter outfits this season, and no, I am not just talking about layering flannels like this:

How about a plaid scarf? Or if you are in love with this trend like I am: a plaid coat?

And that concludes the 5 Fall 2015 trends everyone should try to incorporate into Winter. 🙂
