Trends to watch this Winter

Winter has finally graced our cities and brought with it some new styles for the fresh new season!

In our previous zine article we took a look at all the amazing trends on show at Fashion week, and now we bring you the best from the streets.

Here are some of the looks the take the cake for the WOTS team this chilly season: 2f31d39876ce8ff68b1f37ddcd648b7c1.  Lace cut outs

Lace panels are really popular this Winter (as seen in our article on Mariam Seddiq’s collection at QT fashion week in June).

Cut out panels on shirts, lengthy dresses and skirts add that sneaky preview of skin, whilst still maintaining a comfortable warmth, especially at night. Screen Shot 2014-07-12 at 10.25.25 PM2. Faux or Fur

The foxy fur-look is always on-trend, but it seems to have made a massive comeback this Winter. This modern twist on the classic look has seen splashes of colour or even pattens on the formerly neutral furry numbers.

Wearing one of these bad boys is as good as a hot cup of coffee on a winter day, and it is your best friend when bracing the elements. Screen Shot 2014-07-12 at 10.04.29 PM3. Daring Accessories

According to the runway and the street style in Europe, scarfs won’t be the only items to keep our necks warm this winter. Exaggerated neck pieces with dramatic shapes and colors add that touch of fun to any winter outfit. Screen Shot 2014-07-12 at 11.07.29 PM4. Masculine Chic

If you’re after high-end fashion in a subtle, wearable way then this is where you want to pay attention! Masculine styles for women are great for this Winter.

Doing yourself up to the nines to look good, is a thing of the past ladies. You can now rock a pair of high-waisted trousers and a button up boyfriend top and still look super stylish (image from the Satorialist*). Screen Shot 2014-07-12 at 10.10.15 PM5. BOLD Prints

An exciting print is ALWAYS on-trend, any season. But this Winter it seems the bolder the better! Opt for some fun geometric prints or highly defined floral patterns to make any outfit look expensive and high-end. Screen Shot 2014-07-12 at 11.02.25 PM6. Oversized capes

It can be tempting in Winter to leave the house laden in warm jumpers, but luckily we can trade it all in for one delicious layer – the oversized jacket.

Oversized cape dresses are just perfect for the workplace or a fashionable night out.

Don’t forget though, ladies (and gentlemen), while you can shop these looks straight from the runway, you can also visit your local op shops to create these runway fashions and add a touch of vintage to your outfit.
