And now for something a little bit different! Today we talking about how to #DressNormal. Because not everyone is a fashion blogger. Forget draping your coat over your shoulder, faux fur waist coats and all those other fussy fashion fads, we want to get back to the basics with beautifully simple clothes made for everyday life. So, here are winter fashion must-haves for normal gals who like their actions to speak louder than their clothes.

We got our inspiration for this list from the new Gap winter collection.Available from Stuttafords stores nationwide the new collection is all about clothes that look “lived-in” – the types of clothes that you wear every day. So, we thought why not focus on all things comfy yet chic this winter .

Find your favorite pair of jeans:

Step one to dressing normal this winter is finding your favourite pair of jeans! You know the ones; you live in them and you can’t imagine morning coffee with the ladies, shopping adventures or heading to the movies without them. We love these Gap jegging jeans from Stuttafords (R799.95) – they’re super stretchy, fit like a glove and are perfect for any occasion. Wear it with a comfy hoody and sneakers for a casual day out or pair it with a high heeled boot and a gorgeous coat for a chic winter look.

Be snug as a bug in a warm and cosy jersey:

Nothing makes winter more bearable than a cosy jersey. Find the right one for you and then snuggle up in it next time you head out for lunch with friends or at next weekend’s family braai. Pair it with a pair of skinny jeans and boots and you’ll have the perfect winter look.



Find a sweater that’s worth living in:

Another must-have this winter is the classic sweater. We love this simply stunning sweater from Gap (R499.95) which pairs fabulously with a pair of jeans or a winter skirt and tights. Whoever said simple wasn’t chic clearly hasn’t seen this winning sweater!

Invest in a coat that lasts:

Forget outer wear or whatever fashion bloggers are calling coats these days – this winter invest in a simple but beautiful coat that will stand the test of time. If it’s beautiful and comfortable it’s a real winner! Pair your coat with everything from leggings and jeans to dresses this winter and you you’ll never be afraid to go out in the rain again.
