Winter's here. Time for the frosty fashion challenge.

Balance out the volume of a cocoon coat by wearing slim-fitting pieces. Pair it with jeans or leggings for a pulled-together look; a shift dress with heels makes for an oh-so-glamorous ensemble.

Alternatively, winter capes have a classic look that exude sophistication. Their versatility makes them a statement piece, so you can easily transition from office wear into night wear.  

Look Ma, no scarves!

Consider funnel coats your (semi) multi-purpose winter coat. Thanks to the high neckline and elongating silhouette, you're guaranteed style and warmth.

The result? A figure-flattering ensemble with no need for scarves. 

All Wrapped Up

There are simply too many ways to tie scarves. But with the recent trend of infinity scarves popping up everywhere, it has quickly become this season's must-have item.

Quick and easy to wear, all you have to do is loop one around your neck and you're good to go. 

Tighten up

Still dying to wear that summer frock and cute skirt? Just because the temperature has dropped below zero, doesn't mean that you have to stash away your favourite pieces.

Instead, pair them with wool tights or knee highs and you're good to go!

These boots were made for walkin'...

... and that's just what they'll do this season. 

Opt for a pair of quality rainboots (Hunters are a great investment) and brave the wet weather.

Leather boots are also a pratical and stylish choice. Not only are they waterproof, but they can withstand the snow.

Over-the-knee boots are another great option. They're right on trend and they will certainly keep your legs warm. Pair the boots with any ensemble and voila - instant chicness.

And if you're feeling particularly daring, don a pair of thigh-high boots



Sweaters, fur, winter capes ... it seems as if winter fashion has taken a turn to decadence and glamour this season. 

Whether you're headed for a special rendezvous, or simply going about your daily routine, these trends will certainly express your fashionable side while preventing you from getting a (Vancouver) frostbite.
