Come Winter, Come!

Style is a dicey affair. The need to conform to the rules laid down by a nebulous group can be maddening, especially if you’re the kind of person who would much rather wear faded pyjamas outdoors if you could just get away with it.

But the good thing is that it’s possible to fit the bill when it comes to style while enjoying it at the same time. Come winter and clothing sees a sea change. There might not be snow or frostbite, but cold and chills can be equally threatening.

Pack away your flimsy cotton capris, spaghetti straps (unless you plan to use them as padding) and flip-flops. Cold weather doesn’t necessarily imply dull shawls and depressingly dark jackets. This season’s canon is colour, and the brighter the better.

It’s only November but the bounty is spilling out of stores. Shrugs, misconstrued by many as temporary garments that only hide too much skin or curves, have stepped up as the newest must-haves.

Jackets are also seeing new styles this season. The typical sporty jacket that you pull over T-shirts and kurtas comes in greens, purples and yellows apart from the standard greys and whites. Woollen jackets are also widely available: thick, soft material in cutesy colours, both thigh-length and to the waist, with whimsical tassels and floppy bows to soften the overall look. They might be slightly heavy on the pocket but they keep you snug.
