‘If you can’t be better than your competition, just dress better,’ Anna Wintour.

Wise words from the allusive American Vogue editor. The way one dresses can extract from them what they need to do better. What Ms. Wintour must have forgotten uttering these words is the almost unbearable season of winter. The struggle to dress at all in the freezing cold can often impair one’s ability to dress better.

However, it can be done.  All that is needed is the correct winter staples that will make dressing better in winter a breeze.

The Thigh High Boot

Layers are essential in winter, and the shoe can be a layer once it rises above the knee. A thigh high boot is the mark of a dangerous woman, who will easily better her competition.


The Velvet Cowl Neck Dress

Is it winter 1994? No but that doesn’t mean a slip isn’t out of the question. While the velvet fabric makes for a clever addition to the winter wardrobe and everyone looks cute in a cowl neck.

The Levi’s Sherpa Jacket

There are few ways a sherpa jacket could be compared to a little black dress, However it’s timeless, classic and definitely should be worn over a little black dress. However, if there are men who aren’t willing to wear it like that the faux fur lining will keep you warm as well.

A Fun Sock

It can be hard in winter to embrace colour and print. Unless with a Good Lookin’ Rooster. These socks can elevate any monotone winter look with a fun surprise.
