A new year calls for an updated wardrobe | It is time you de-clutter your closet and bring in our 5 key must-have’s for winter 2016

Change is in the air. It’s time to retrospect on the year that was and gear up for the New Year. A great way to do that is to de-clutter your closet and bring in our top 5 must-have’s for winter 2016.


Turtle necks

A well-fitted turtle neck sweater is the perfect base for your winter wardrobe. Its simplicity ensures a layer of warmth and bold elegance to your style. Invest in black or grey turtleneck next year. Wear it with a pair of black cigarette pants a laAudrey Hepburn or layer it with a trench coat to channel your inner Jackie O. The styling options with a turtle neck are endless | Try one under your dress or your favourite Kurta |

Camel coat

An evergreen that every woman should have in her winter closet. This updated classic is the best alternative to the colour black and complements all skin tones. Pair it with a white shirt and straight-fit denims. Or drape one with your favourite blackKurta and a black scarf. Remember to get a boxy shaped silhouette as it would last you for seasons (irrespective of size).

Ankle Boots

Tall or short, every woman can use a pair of booties or ankle boots. Wear it with your pants, that long skirt or even your little black dress. Think fun and opt for bold colours and textures. Get a cue from the drool-worthy patent leather Raff Simons inspired creations for Christian Dior. H&M India has a few classic styles worth the investment.


Cashmere stole

Once you feel cashmere against your skin, you will be hooked. Soft and luxurious, pure cashmere will last you for years. Drape a cashmere stole to instantly elevate your look. Indulge in constantly stylish classic neutrals such as black, camel or grey. But don’t stop there! In India, we have endless choices when it comes to colour and prints. It pairs well with all outfits, especially that sari or kurta you have been meaning to wear this winter.


Faux fur gilet

Finally, complete your winter layered look with a fur gilet. The sleeveless style can be layered over long-sleeved t-shirts, knits or dresses. We love pairing one over a sari, with the end of the saree draped around your neck as a scarf. Or simply throw one over that long kurtaand see it work its magic. Style it with a belt, at the waist, to pull your look together. You can have some serious fun with your gilet; just remember to keep the bottom-half slim-fitted.
