I actually can’t wait for winter to be gone but… I love creating winter outfits. There is nothing more elegant than layers, nothing cosier than cashmere or delicate wool, and nothing more comfortable than…winter boots!
I love wearing summer dresses but being honest – winter outfits are much more demanding.
I have found five iconic pieces I love(d) wearing this winter. I haven’t actually ‘discovered’ anything – I have re-freshened my wardrobe and bought some timeless pieces I plan to wear next winter as well.
I feel like it is the last winter fashion post this season as I have quite a lot of trips and fashion weeks planned – fresh, spring-inspired looks are much needed! Nevertheless, we have still got a month of winter left, so here are some tips:
I love cashmere for many reasons but no other luxuriant wool has this soft feel. I picked the caramel colour from the London Cashmere Company and been wearing it the whole winter. It looks great with the A-line skirt,a woollen mini or simply a pair of jeans. I get quite a lot of compliments from fashion-aware ladies, and I am in love with how elegant it looks (even the most wintery looks!). Cashmere is my absolute fav winter fabric.
It is my second pair of EMU Australia – I am a great fan of the brand. There is no doubt that the iconic boots are one of the ugliest pairs I have ever had on my feet but yet they also manage to look incredibly great in my winter outfits! I like pairing them up with my skinny jeans as well as with the black tights- mini skirt combo. They keep me warm in the mountains, which is the most important feature of Emu Australia. This year I went for the ‘midnight’ colour of my Emu Stinger Mini. They are greyish on the outside and navy on the inside. I often wear them cuffed for the more cosy look. I am planning to get another pair now – they are on sale – the price is almost 50% off, wich is a lot!

Second ‘ugliest’ shoes I have ever had, and equally amazing as the previously mentioned EMU Australia. I love how Moon Boot makes me look… slimmer! They look great with the skinny jeans, leggings, leather pants and paired with the puffer. I got this pair as a ‘test’ as the black Moon Boots were the cheapest version (around 70 EUR). I am thinking of getting the golden/silver version for the next winter. They are the best option for the ski trip, and look incredibly great in the majority of winter resort looks!

Camel Coat Vintage Cut
Camel coat – nothing extra, nothing new. I got this amazing woollen vintage coat in December 2018, and I keep wearing it for the meetings and events. It looks incredibly stylish paired with a nice belt, such as my Moschino. I love the fact this particular coat is oversized.
I am a great fan of vintage looks in general – as you could probably guess from my blog or Instagram channel. So I would say this look is vintage, with a hint of Russia and… some Italian influence, as such capes were originally created in Italia long time ago. This coat was designed and made by my favourite fashion designer – my granny.❤️
Make sure to check my articles about my favourite shoes and outwear for the winter season. Perhaps it is the right time as there are still some great sales around. I always say it is worth to invest in timeless pieces, and I often buy at the end of winter. Saves quite a lot of $$$ 🙂
