Look good this winter

THE weather may be bad but the season's accessories and clothes are great.

THE weather may be bad but the season's accessories and clothes are great.

But resist the urge to pile it on, and focus on balancing out thicker pieces. For example, rather than pairing wide-leg trousers with a puffy coat, opt for a tailored or cropped jacket. Or stay slim on the bottom with tall boots.

Show off your silhouette by avoiding overpowering turtlenecks, and elongate with V-neck or cowl neck sweater dresses and tunics. Another thing to consider is coat length. Pairing a shorter coat with tall boots will keep the eye moving from head to toe, while a longer length coat should be worn with shoes.

Belted shirts are also stylish this winter. Just because it is cold does not mean that you have to look dowdy. You can layer clothes in a fashionable way.
