Wonder what runway trends should you add to your winter wardrobe? You got it, here´s a list of what to pack your closet.
You probably think that Parka is one of your top winter essentials; I hate to disappoint, but if we´re talking fashion-forward winter wardrobe, there are only four ultimate essential pieces to give your style a tremendous shake. So sit back, grab a cup of tea and let´s talk about why these FABULOUS FOUR are a must-have.
There are many trends that we saw from fall/winter 2013 catwalk. In fact, many of those trends are a repeat or a remake of previous seasons´ trends – fall´s wine colors? A deeper approach to the power red. Urban English tartan? An autumn-y version of summer colored checks. The green movement? An update of summer´s camouflage. And yet, this winter, what are the easiest, most effortless trends that no one could resist?

The Statement Knit
Knits have never been so fun and glamorous. From graphic jumpers, bold oversized sweaters, stunning boyfriend cardigans and turtlenecks, your knitwear options have just got wider and bigger. Choose at least two investment sweaters in color or print that speaks of-the-moment. Wear one over a collared shirt and teamed with a statement skirt for parties, and the other under a smart jacket partnered with a midi skirt for work.
The Masculine Military Coat
There´s one good reason why military style coat survives as a trend for how many seasons now, because its masculine attitude plays up a woman´s femininity and sexiness like no other. Look for styles with clinched waist, bold collar, warm and stylish for winter.
Already got a military coat from last year´s winter? How would you spruce it up to give it a new look? Add a buckle belt, it´s perfect to complement your coat´s masculine elements.
The Perfect Print Dress
Okay, so you have several pieces, I mean lots, of printed dresses. But if summer meant an explosion of bold florals and prints, winter takes a couple of steps back. Florals are still vibrant but mostly made in darker shades blended with earthy hues.
The White Shade
Think cotton-like show in winter, white is a key color of the season. Whether your approach is head-to-toe white or classic black and white, a crisp white piece is a power player not to mention practical. Notice how many looks can you make with a single white top? Layer, and lots of layering.
