Brighten up your winter

LOOKING frumpy should not be an option this winter. Gone are the days when one had to contend with drab colours such as black, brown and grey to keep the cold at bay.

LOOKING frumpy should not be an option this winter. Gone are the days when one had to contend with drab colours such as black, brown and grey to keep the cold at bay.

Unusual and bright colours, variations of primary colours such as red, green and blue, will add brilliance and splendour to dull winter skies.

Coats, dresses and jackets also come in radiant colours to jazz up any winter wardrobe.

Those not bold enough to include bright winter colours among their wardrobe essentials can look just as good in accessories such as leggings, tights, scarves, brooches, bags and hats.

These can be paired with winter wardrobe staples such as coats and boots.

Winter essentials such as coats and jackets also come in a variety of colours and styles to suit every taste.

For women a masculine edge is added to gear such as jeans, blazers and shirts for the "boyfriend" look.

Biker-inspired gear, characterised by studs and other embellishments on flat pumps, bags and jackets, are also hot this winter.

The military inspired look also makes a comeback for men. Hard-wearing and durable combat boots, cargo pants, crew shirts and jackets complete the look.
